Usually I don’t bench press but recently I’ve been going heavy on it for a change of pace. I’m focusing on the 1-4 rep max range. Gains have been great so far but the other day I was going for a max when I noticed a pain in my left bicep tendon. It wasn’t excrutiating but more of a dull, aching pain.
I injured it arm-wrestling (I know, stupid) several years ago and every once in awhile it flares up. Strange to me, though, that it becomes noticeable after benching. Anyway, oddly enough doing direct arm work or pull-ups actually seems to alleviate some of the pain, at least temporarily.
Has anyone else experienced this?
