    Request Advice on a Pain-Related Weight Lifting Issue

    Hi Friends -- I am having an issue with pain on the inside of both of my elbows related to several exercises. This is the area where the "funny bone" is located and the area affected in "Golfer's Elbow"
    Examples of exercises that tend to cause pain as weight is increased:
    1) I can do hammer curls, but cannot do nearly the same amount of weight on a normal curl without pain.
    2) The problem is also exacerbated by doing flys lying on a bench.
    3) The problem can also be exacerbated by lateral pull downs and rows if I put on too much weight.

    Any idea what this is? Can I fix the problem through a change in technique or is their a way to slowly train through it?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!
    Scotty

    Seems like the issue is tendonitis in the bicep. In particular the peak of your bicep. I recommend doing lacrosse ball work and stretching to help relieve the elbow pain. Focus on8-20 reps. don't go too heavy on curls or any exercise involving those muscles until it heals up. Also replace flies with something else. There are many other options. If presses don't bother you when training chest do them instead.

    I have had golfers elbow, and anything with an underhand grip causes it to flare up immediately. Pullups/pulldowns were tough for me, I've found the only way I can do them is a narrow palms forward grip. Rows I can do with a neutral narrow grip. I stretch my wrists and elbows and get them nice and warm before working out. Figuring out what works for you will take time. Never push through the elbow pain, stop as soon as it hurts a little.

    If you have pain then must visit a specialist. Changing technique will work when you start workout after healing your injury.
