Lots of people here seem to have elbow pain during push exercises, but not me, my elbow hurts when I do romanian deadlifts and BB shrugs. I don’t think I’m using my biceps to pull since I’m able to do chin ups and curls afterwards, but it does feel like the insertion point for my biceps are hurting…even though they don’t hurt when I do exercises that should stress my biceps like this chin up and curls. It also hurts when I try to rotate my forearm forward–it’ll hurt when I do a pec stretch in the doorway unless I make an effort to keep the pressure off my wrist and forearm.
I get at least 300 grams of protein, several capsules of fish oil, calcium with D3 and multivitamins every day. I’ve been massaging the area–it was quite tender the day after my last back workout, but most days it doesn’t hurt to the touch.
Doing searches indicates that I should take 2 weeks to a year off. I’m not ready to go to that extent yet, so what else can I do before taking time off? I’m thinking about picking up a set of sleeves or wraps. Both should help keep the joint warm, but I’m not sure how much of a benefit wraps will provide in a pull. I’m also thinking about trying curcumin 500, but I’m not sure if masking the pain is the best idea.
