Hey, I’ve been training properly since june (i.e since finding this site and realising you have to eat a LOT of food if you want to build muscle), at first I was doing a mishmash of exercises then in october I started on the original WS4SB program which had a lot more volume than I was used to. I think this was when I first started getting twinges on the inside of my left elbow on the upper body days.
Sometimes I’d get through a whole workout and it would feel fine, other times it would be slightly sore on dumbbell presses and bench presses, or it would ache the next day on the lower inside of the elbow as in golfer’s elbow, yet I have no other symptoms of golfer’s elbow re. wrist flexion and gripping things.
My last workout was on 26/12/08, I’ve been taking it easy since then, using difene spray daily and trying some self A.R.T but it’s still at me.
Now it only hurts when I flex my elbow like in a hammer curl, I get a slight pain around the lower part of the bicep in the hollow of the elbow and it seems like it goes right through the joint to the boney point of my elbow. It’s like a weak feeling.
Does anyone have any ideas on what it could be? It’s really pissing me off. As far as I can remember dumbbell rows didn’t irritate it, would it be ok to start back on these, can anyone recommend any other exercises I could still be doing? Would it be worthwhile trying unilateral training with just my right arm?
