I have a question that I hope somebody can help me out with. My arm more like my elbow gives out on me when I try to attempt to do any type of pressing with DB and BB also when I Curl. When I first started lifting I had a trainer and he thought it was kind of odd that my arm would just give out by my elbow even at low weights. This is very frustrating to me and I know that I could do lower weights with higher reps but I would like to add some mass and strength by using higher weights.
I was wondering if anybody might know why my elbows give out and also if using elbow straps would help support my elbows while using the higher weights. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
