Hey guys, whenever I perform the incline bench press exercise, I get this unusual pain right where the deltoid ends and the brachialis begins. I guess the best way to show you guys what I mean is if you held your arms out in front on you with your hand(palm) facing down, you'd feel the pain right at the central end of your deltoids and in the brachialis region. I only feel this pain when I do this exercise and only in my left arm. It becomes noticeable when I bring the bar down from the rack and goes all the way through my reps until I replace the bar. Any ideas? Is that section of my arm weak or is it just bad form?
it could be a lot of things, but I had a similar problem. Try moving your grip in just a little bit and see if that takes some of the stress off of the joint. I have others ideas what it might be but try this first
Without a doubt bicep tendinittus, lay off heavy weights for two weeks work the rear delts and take 800mg ibuprofen twice daily for two weeks (gel caps are better for stomach) . If you know a good sports physician have him use ultrasound and electric stimulazation on it. Good luck with it and do switch to dumbells for a while, also no front raises or upright rows!!
