View Full Version : Elbow pain when doing curls

04-14-2007, 05:06 PM
Whenever I do bicep curls of any moderate weight (for me, 20 lbs or more) My elbow on my right arm pops and hurts quite a bit. I'm not sure how to describe where it is, but I'll try: pretend like you're doing a bicep curl, and it's in between the bump closest to the side of your body and the main elbow bump. It is limiting my progress. Any ideas? Are my weights too heavy or something? I can do about 10 reps with them. Also, this hurts when I do tricep work as well.

I recently had the same issue when doing seated dumbell curls. I had to reduce the weight (from a pair of 60s to a pair of 45s.) It still gets irritated by lat-bar pulldowns and chinups, but not by hammer curls or preacher curls. Go figure. It is improving, but very slowly.
