Hey everyone, I’ll try to be as detailed as possible, and hopefully someone knows what I’m talking about. This has just been starting to happen in the last couple of months.
Whenever I do direct bicep work(concentration curls, reverse curls, and barbell curls to be exact), everything is good during the workout. But after, maybe 5 min. or so, whenever I flex my bicep or even have my arm at a 90 degree angle, it feels like someone is squeezing it, the longer I flex it the tighter the pain becomes until I straighten out my arm. I’m afraid to hold it for too long because the pain is so intense and I think I’ll injure myself somehow.
Also during the pain, the front of the bicep(closest to the joint)feels like it clings on to the forearm, and when I straighten out my arm it pops back to normal. If I had to say where the pain was, it would have to be closest to the joint, but it’s definitely the bicep.
I’ve been lifting weights for 2-3 years and never had this happen till now. This event usually lasts several hours, during which I try not to bend my arms at all. If anyone was curious, I only use creatine, whey pro and animal pak vitamins. I’m wondering if I should see a doctor or if this is just temporary. Anyone else have a problem like this? Thanks in advance!
