    strained tendon






    I think I seriously pulled,strained a tendon right above my elbow.It only hurts when I lift but pain been preety discomforting ending workouts early.I took two days off thinking that would be enough but guess it wasn't.I baught some horse muscle ligament cream helps a lot but not enough and been icing it a lot but pain just won't go away.Should I take a week off and just do light legs,Abs,cardio?Has anyone ever experienced this before?

    Ice for the first 2-3 days is good, it reduces the blood flow and helps reduce inflammation. After that, I have found that heating the area helps to speed healing. If you can find a Chinese market near you, try Kwan Loong oil. You can also get it from Amazon if need be. It has a camphor base to it, smells a bit but is great to warm the area up and increase blood flow to speed healing.

    I'd also recommend neoprene elbow sleeves if you don't use them now. I put a tiny bit of Kwan Loong on my elbows, slip on my sleeves and go to work. Just my advice, hope it helps.

    I think I strained a tendon or ligament in my arms as well. I have severe pain in my antecubital region of both my arms. It has been for 10 weeks. I used to be able to curl 140lbs+ on a damn olympic bar with moderate form and now i struggle to curl 30lbs.

    That being said, I have trained through the pain. Some weeks it is BAD other weeks it isn't as bad. I tried the time off method (rested for 2-3 weeks, no change). Hell, I am just going to work through it... Have been beatin' ass for 8 weeks, and my arms still work...kinda

    Here is some DO's and DONTS:
    - Warmup A lot. I noticed the better my warmup the less the pain
    - listen to your body, if it feels more sensitive one day then avoid it
    - emphasize the workouts that aren't painful
    - watch the drugs, if you are on AAS be careful about painkillers they can be hard on the liver
    - ICE that girl up
    - Don't overwork your damaged area.
