I have issue and thought to share it and get some insight from other lifters.
I recently trained about 11 weeks quite heavy strenght based program including different bench sets of 70-90% 1 rep max ( 2-3 times a week ). Around week 9 i noticed a bit of pain in my lower triceps more near the elbow ( but not in the elbow itself ) in both arms. I sensed i need to take time off soon but last friday in week 11 i did a small test and lifted just 4x4 240lbs.
Two first sets were fine but the last two sets something happened.
From the last sets always the 1st rep came down like almost free falling the last 2.5 inches. I just couldn't control the eccentric phase to the end because of sudden pain and then i regained control and 3 other reps from set went fine and didn't hurt. With last set also the same thing happened no matter how much i tried to force myself to control it i just couldn't.
Stupid that i even tried but... insert any excuse here.
This morning when i woke up, both triceps ached a bit from same area and i hadn't touched any weights since friday.
So, yeah somethings up.
Too much heavy training and simply i haven't recovered?
Perhaps i have small infection going on? I don't usually use painkillers ever so i haven't taken any.
Only gear i use is sustanon 250 every 10 days for trt.
I'm not self medicating i have recipe for it and it's from local drug store not from black market.
Could sustanon cause this? I've read it can cause joint pain and my anatomy knowledge ain't too great. Not sure what's happening in the low part of triceps. I've lost track how long i've used sustanon but atleast 3 months or so.
Any help and insight appreciated since i should get back on lifting the coming monday, which most likely will not happen
