Yesterday, I had to cut my chest workout short because of my right elbow. It wasn’t a searing, screaming pain, more like a “if you don’t stop now, I will show you why having health insurance is a horrible idea” pain.
This has come and gone for 6-8 weeks now. It used to be more prevalent on db flyes, so I switched to pec-deck/cables. Now, the pain is there on presses.
The strange thing is then when I am working my triceps, there is no pain at all. My thought is that oerhaps this is because I more fully warm up the elbow joint before a tricep workout with three or four light pressdown sets.
I’m going to try the pressdown warmup next time, and I also purchased some glucosamine/condroitian with MSM.
Knowing this, two questions:
Is there anything else–physically–that any of you could recommend?
Any tips with the G/C? I’ve never taken it before. (Never had to, although I think it is more of a preventative, than a curative.)
