I have been training for almost two years but I’m mostly a beginner. I have had various mild injuries and managed to deal with them (thanks to T-Nation).
Lately (very noticeable in the last few weeks) I have some serious triceps pain after working out, usually starting the next day - just like DOMS, but it’s not soreness. Working out is fine but the next morning I can’t even do a pushup because of pain and my triceps just seem to “lock” with the pain and I can’t complete a simple pressing move (I can do 20+ pushups easily). The pain is centered close to the shoulder, at the top of the ‘horseshoe’ if you will. I feel like it’s some soft tissue thing because warming up and working out is no problem and normal day conditions are OK, too. Only under some sort of stress/stretch do I feel the pain.
I can still work out but there’s something wrong with not being able to do a push up after a day of chest and shoulder exercises (no direct triceps work). It continues, slowly fading away, in the days that follow. I’m also not using any heavy weights (bench pressing BW for example). I looked over the site/web and couldn’t quite find anything. I will go see a doctor if necessary.
Anybody has any advice/knowledge? Thanks a lot.
