Lately my left elbow joint has been causing me pain when my arm is in a fully contracted state....the top of a bicep curl, beginning movement of a tri pressdown, etc. So I have been only lifting to the point just before pain....like the the bottom 3/4 of a bicep curl. My question is.....am I getting anything out of these partial movements or what?
Ok, and my next question is really stupid
I have this plate-loaded rowing machine at the gym...each 'arm' swings individually. If I've got a 45 on each side, what am I lifting...45 or 90 :o
