ok so im trying to figure out what i did to my tricep. it seems to be in the orgin area of the long head, although i feel it in the upper armpit more on the humeral side than the scapular side. when i raise my arm over my head and then extend at the elbow to full extension is when i feel the pain the most, but jsut extendeing my upper arm overhead brings the pain too. it has gotten better, probably about 25% of the pain now that it used to be, but i still cant workout on it.
it has been this way for about 4 weeks, the pain appeared one day when i woke up after haveing done a good chest workout the day before after which i had to help a freind (chick) move and i carried a lot of probably too heavy stuff by myself and also was dragging an overloaded dolly up and down stairs for a few hours.
another pertinenent detail is i have been benching 'big' for the last few months, probably should have taken a week or two off the big weights but once i started using 315 in my working sets i became addicted to it.
im hoping this is a bad pull and not a tear, as i dont have medical insurance and sure as hell cant get an MRI.
anyone have any insight or similiar experience?
