    i have tendinitis in my right arm near the elbow insertion in my bicep, would it be okay for me to do legs as normal seeing as it doesn't really need the problem area other than stabilization in some lifts? also what is your take on doing deadlifts during the time it's like this. when i do them i feel no pain or strain whatsoever, but it's still using the problem are pretty heavily

    i just went to my doctors and he said i had some minor tennis elbow. i suffer from noodle arms and the pain appeared around the elbow joint. if im reading the post right, tennis elbow would be a quick recovery? im not very sporty and just started exercising properly this week but ive experienced the same pain over a year ago with the same/ similar exercise, which makes me think it might be long term and not actually tennis elbow??? right now im using some voltaren emulgel and not doing anything with my arms. i tried modified pushups a day after i felt the pain and it didnt come back. is there any arm exercises i can do that avoids strain on the tennis elbow? sorry if these are noobs questions im just really new to this

    edit: a year ago i stopped completely after the pain appeared and just didnt acknowledge it which was stupid

    If you dont feel pain or strain (or discomfort), it should be all right. So, keep working dem legs!

    Use the same thumb rule for deadlift. No pain, no strain, no discomfort? That's good! If your tendinitis is in your bicep, maybe you should stick to double over hand to avoid elbow bending and bicep recruitement. If your tendinitis is in your forearm muscles, maybe gripping the bar will flare up the inflammation. Be cautious and maybe you should use straps for the next few days/weeks.

    Anyway, follow the steps in post 1 and it should get rid of that easily! Listen to your body and never push through pain.

    Keep doing what you're doing and be attentive to what can causes the pain. Stretch your triceps more (search for triceps stretching) and I guess foam rolling will help. Some people have hard knot in the triceps (or near the shoulder joint).

    Wait a little longer before going to the doctor. If you feel no pain lately, there is nothing to worry about.

    A quick recovery is relative. Every body is different and an injury will heal at a different rate for every one. For example, a tendinitis is quick to recover compare to a complete torn, a broken bone or a surgery.

    There is many possible causes to your problem.

    Possibility 1 :
    If you were completely inactive/sedentery before, your body is probably out of shape. Its capacity to resist stress might be very low. So, if you started exercising (full of good intentions), you might have pushed beyond your limits (wich might be very low) and it might have caused a tendinitis.
    Solution 1 :
    If it's the case, I suggest you to reduce your training frequency/volume/intensity and ease back in a good training regimen. Rome wasnt built in a day. Look out for Allpro's beginner program (in work out program section, it's a sticky) and do it. Start with light weight.

    Possibility 2 :
    What is your job? If you have a fairly active lifestyle, this recurrent elbow injury can be caused by your work. People who works in a cold environnement, people who works a lot with computer, people who repeats always the same fast movement or people who has to grip heavy or big object are prone to elbows tendinitis.
    Solution 2 :
    If it's the case, your training regimen creates more stress on your elbow and push your body beyond it's capacity. You should reduce your frequency/volume/intensity of exercises that recruit your elbow (pretty much any upper body exercises) at first. Stretch and massage your forearm, your bicep and your triceps. Stick to the compound that doesnt hurt or doesnt stress your elbow too much (bench press, pull down/chin up, shoulder press, row) and avoid arms isolation (curl, tricep push down, etc.). You have to give a chance to your body to adapt to this new stress. So start easy and progress slowly.

    Possibility 3 :
    The problem might be a mechanical problem. You do the movement wrong so it stress your tendons and ligaments.
    Solution 3 :
    Ask a coach to correct your form and dont use weight you can't handle. Work in a higher rep range.

    Possibility 4 :
    The problem might be because you over use your elbow. Upper body exercises use the elbow. So, if you do too much upper body exercises, you might over use your elbow.
    Solution 4 :
    Get on a real program. Allpro's beginner program, ws4sb, starting strength, GST, etc.


    It might have other possibilities, those are the most commons I know.



    Anyway, rest until the pain goes away at rest. In other words, avoid every thing that causes pain and wait until you can move your elbow normally. Then, follow the steps written in first post. Ease back intro training, but avoid every thing that causes pain, start with light weight and do high reps. Ease back intro training progressively. However, you MUST find what causes this injury, otherwise, it will happen again. YOU have to fix it. Did you start too agressively? Is it a lack of rest? How is your form on exercises? How is your routine? etc...

    To avoid strain on your elbow, dont do anything that hurts right now. Later, when it doesnt hurt anymore, slowly re introduce upper body exercises. But, be ready to back off at the moment it hurts or your feel discomfort. Compounds exercises (bench press, pull down, shoulder press, row) are less stressful on the elbow than isolations.

    Good luck!

    Gud thread. I've recently injured my rotator cuff. Its a slight problem, doesn't really hurt at all during lifts but can tell I have strained it abit. Best thing I recommend is what you have suggested, particularly the self massage and ice.

    Thanks for all the replies an advice saints, every little bit of info helps lol. It doesn't feel like my back is sprained anymore. There's just these hard spots near the middle/low part of my spine (attached pic below), and my right hamstring flares up when standing for more than 15 minutes. Staying positive was pretty hard at one point, but the doctors appointments in 2 weeks give me something to look forward to. Definitely bringing up being put on meds though. I just want to lift again



    EDIT: also considering trying ice packs again, but the last time I used an ice on my back (3ish months ago), my back sort of locked up, and I had to see my PT lol. Heating pads aggravate the area. Should I consider ice again?

    HELP! i injured myself in the gym 4 months ago now, doing front plate raises, felt fine whilst doing them but afterwards my inner elbow, where bicep/forearm meet started to really tighten up. i haven't done any bicep/back exercises since as unable to without making it worse, i tried to continue doing chest/shoulders but after a couple of attempts and finding it irritated the injury i gave up and haven't done any upper body exercises for near on 3 months now.

    i have been to the doctors on 3 occasions, and had two physio sessions on it (physio seemed to make it worse) doctors tell me i have tendonitis and that it just needs rest, i have been resting it as much as possible for three months, icing 3-4 times a day, using anti inflammatory cream, but nothing seems to be helping it, even straightening my arm seems to agitate it. its not a injury that stops my day to day life, and i still have the same strength, but i cant do any kind of exercise without making it worse.

    i need help! i wanna get back in the gym! any with any kind of advice? im beginning to think i may have a small tear, could i be right?

    i have been to the doctors on 3 occasions, and had two physio sessions on it (physio seemed to make it worse) doctors tell me i have tendonitis and that it just needs rest, i have been resting it as much as possible for three months, icing 3-4 times a day, using anti inflammatory cream, but nothing seems to be helping it, even straightening my arm seems to agitate it. its not a injury that stops my day to day life, and i still have the same strength, but i cant do any kind of exercise without making it worse.

    i need help! i wanna get back in the gym! any with any kind of advice? im beginning to think i may have a small tear, could i be right?
    Woh!

    Small tear usually take short time to heal.

    A tendinitis not healed tend to became tendinosis. It's basically the same, exept it takes much longer to heal. If you had a tendinitis at first but you still train through pain for a while without giving enough time to your injury to heal, it might became a tendinosis.

    When you say you take 3 months of rest and it didnt help..that's puzzled me.

    Maybe a sport specialist will help you better. Through a forum, it's impossible for me to help you, I'm sorry.

    alternating cold/hot therapy and rest?
    It might be time to take a deload week? By the way you describe it, it seems to be inflammation. Ice and rest will do.

    It happens to me all the time. When it happens, I take a week off from lower body training and then I slowly ease back into training. By the time I reach the level I was before my deload (3-4 weeks), the pain is gone.

    To be more specific, it hurts to "pull" the ground. For example if I'm seating and plant my foot as far out as I can and then trying to "pull" the floor back by dragging my foot back with pressure on the ground. I can go up and down stairs fine, and one leg squat with my body weight fine. Its just when I standing curl my leg or do the dragging thing that it hurts..

    Edit: never mind, sometimes sharp pain when going down stairs

    had my doctors appointment today! he said my back isn't sprained anymore, but the tightened muscles surrounding the sprain couldn't loosen up again, thus me having muscle spasms. gave me a prescription for Flexeril, i see my back doctor next week, and my physician says to see him again in a month.

    it looks like i'm relatively close to being active again. this is literally the happiest i've been in 6 months!

    Looking for a bit of insight as to what I have been experiencing which i find rather weird. The ONLY time that i experience it is when doing handstands working up to handstand pushups i experience a sharp pain on one side of my upper pec towards the shoulder.

    Sorry for the delay man!

    You describe the same symptoms I often have. Does it also hurt when you kneel down on the floor or on your bed or when you put pressure on your knee when its bent?

    My physiotherapist told me it was a small hamstring tear. It goes away after a while.

    Go see a doctor and follow the steps in first post. You probably just need some rest!

    That's awesome

    Slowly easy back into training though! Dont push yourself too hard in the gym the first few weeks, otherwise you risk to cramp everything up!

    That could be many things. From tight shoulders muscles to bad technique. Make sure everything is contracted and tight, dont let all your weight push on your joint. Play with hand stand width...narrow, shoulder width, wide...maybe some width will hurt and others wont.

    It might be possible you just can't do that exercise. Personnally, my shoulder cringes everytime I do dips.

    Yeah, it's possible to feel nothing in the hamstring. Tendons insertion are very close to the area. The first time it happens to me, I thought some ligaments or meniscus were damaged. I was sceptic when the PT told me it was a torn muscle.

    Take a rest and if it doesnt get better within 2-3 weeks, go see a professionnal.

    Pain in the hip when I squat down deep, even with just BW. It was hurting before during warm ups, but goes away for the most part. I've been stretching and doing a little mobility work as a warm up. Last workout was tuesday, but didn't feel it until yesterday. I woke up with pain. I squat with a widish stance with toes pointed out and I go ATG 100% of the time. I can also feel it when I pull my knee (left) up to my chest, and move my knee towards the right. Doesn't feel like a soreness, more of a joint pain feel.
