Hello, this is my first post so let me start off by saying thank you for welcoming me to your community and taking the time to read this post, a special thanks to those who advise me. Here are my stats.
5 foot 6 inches
Estimating 12% body fat
Been working out for about four years training for about three months. I started at 135 pounds at roughly the same body fat. (41 lbs of Muscle estimated in that timeframe added)
The reason i'm posting is because i've seem to have suffered a rather annoying left bicep strain when trying out cross fit (nothing against cross fit but I believe the suceptibility to injury is there)
The tendon (or what ever it may be farely sure it's a tendon as it connects muscle to bone) Only causes me pain upon flexion of the left forearm i.e. biceps curls and pulling movements besides the dead lift. I was wondering if someone may try to help me construct a program so that I can allow this strain to heal well still making gains right now I'm doing a program with a lot of frequency and volume basically working half the body One day and then the other half the next but not in an upper lower fashion. It's worth noting that the strain has gone away before and I was able to do exercises such as biceps curls without any pain but the pain has resurfaced. I know it is not tendinitis as I have that in my right arm Lateral epicondylitis. I can deadlifts at 100% without any problems so incorporating that into my routines seems like it would great idea As I can then train back well refraining from other pulling exercises that hurt. I may have some chemical assistance. I know it can be a simple as just avoiding the exercises that cause pain until it heals but I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar injury that they train through in a more optimal fashion thank you for your time.
