I have a powerlifting competition on october 1st. Problem is that for this past week i have been experiencing intense pain in my lower bicep/elbow area at the crease of the arm from holding the barbell during heavy squats. This of course is also affecting my bench. I am an absolute moron when it comes to treatment of injuries.
Anyone have advice on steps i can take to treat this injury so it is not a major factor on meet day. Should I apply ice, heat, tiger palm, take anti inflammatories…etc
