On wednesday, I did the following workout:
Overhead Press 140lb 5x5
Chins bw(=175lb)+65lb 5x5
Dips bw+110lb 5x5
(The weight given is for my top set, which I worked up to over the previous 4 sets.)
I woke up on Thursday with a fair amount of elbow pain and I still have it now. If I extend my arm in front of me, the pain is on the inside of my elbow in between the two lumps - right where you give yourself a dead arm in the funny bone.
Any thoughts? I’ve been doing the same workout for a few weeks now (I want to build up to 155lbx5 on presses, 85lbx5 on chins and 135x5 on dips) and haven’t had any problems, so why would the pain suddenly appear now? I’m thinking maybe try some elbow wraps and finger extensions with rubber bands?
I’d really appreciate any help.
