I've always had good size bicepts,, always too pride in training them hard and i don't think i overtrained anything.
I have a pain in the base of my bicept, just above the elbow on the inside of the arm. It seems to be coming from a tendon or where the tendon meets the bicept. It really only affects my bi and some back training so this isn't and emergency, but it has def. affected my bi strength. I normally BB curl around 110-135 and now i'm down to squeezing out around 90. I could do more but i'm afraid i would aggrivate the injury more.
The symptoms are that this area is sore during the workout, and it makes little quiet crackeling noises when doing arm work. They also don't recover as quickly as normal. I don't think this has gotten to the point where its cronic and untreatable.
Here is what i'm doing to treat it.....
Take half an advil to help kill any swelling right after lifting.
Icing the area for 1 hr after lifting.
Taking more glutamine then normal and more protien then normal.
Anything i'm missing? Can anyone give some advice?
