I’ve been basically unable to bench press because of issues with my right elbow. I don’t really have a clue what’s going on, except that it’s not tendonitis.
When I was a baby, I had a septic elbow and surgery was done on it. For regular activity, I’ve had no issues with my elbow.
Trying to bench press, my elbow fails as soon as I lower the bar about 2 inches. It works fine from my chest up until that point. It also fails in the first 5 inches of raising my hand if I attempt a hammer-curl movement with a load.
I have no issues with it when I overhead press or barbell curl.
So I’m pretty clueless at what’s going on. I haven’t any idea what kind of tests I could use to figure this out. And because of that, I have no idea how to remedy the issue.
