Same issue and did it about 8 weeks ago. Hurts to curl, but can also feel pain on both sides of my elbow. Picture above and below the elbow.
I mentioned it on my AX log and how it feels like the bicep feels torn, but with no bruising. Its hard to explain the feeling but noticeable weaker than before.
Hope you feel better soon, as I'm still dealing with it... but not as painful.
Sounds kinda like what i have, but i can located the two man tendons that hurt going into my brachalis cant spell. Ill keep an eye on it and in a week if nothing changes go to the doctor
Check out Nervus Ulnaris as well..

First, be sure to ice the area.
Second, warm-up prior to any workout that involves the upper body. Some tend to overgrip things, so for now, just use this warm-up along with whatever else you do to warm-up.
Grab a light dumbbell, 5-10lbs, and hold with a loose grip in one hand. Keep your arm at your side, almost tucked into your side. With your elbow bent at 90 degrees and holding the dumbbell, rotate as far counterclockwise as you can, then slowly roll your wrist clockwise as far as you can. That is 1 rep, aim for 10-15 per arm, for 1-2 sets. LIGHT DUMBBELL IS KEY.
Ok well i had my ME bench today. I talked to my training partner/coach, well idk hes a much older and experienced powerlifter i train with here and there. I explained my issue he told me to do the same warm up Bnatural talked about to get blood in there. Did that. Felt good going in, we were doing floor presses and it started to flare some. Not as bad, I think i found out why it flares when i press but anyways he gave me some icy hot to put on. I ended up hitting 225+60lbs of chains at the top for 2 and felt decent. Finished the session with only moderate pain, far less then monday. Then iced for 30min when I got home and feel A LOT better. Also I did 1 scoop supersize, get focus on this session and was happy with the floor press PR and a 315 rack lockout for 5.
Glad that's all working out for you and will have to give Bnatty's theory a try.
ax reps or supersize users, what do you think about using supersize as preworkout for hiit cardio training like insanity? endurance wise, i run 4-5mi. in the afternoon, how do you guys think supersize will help in terms of these exercise. My tub is getting here this week and i wanna make things clear before start using it. Thanks for the help.
I've never tried SuperSize before an intense workout like Insanity/Cardio.
Personally, I've found that preworkouts before Insanity/Cardio actually elevated my heart rate more than desired.
You'll have to experiment and I'd suggest 1 scoop to start out with.
Insanity is pretty hardcore and keep us posted on what you decide to do.
I would prefer using UltraReps for a long cardio session, considering its ability to increase endurance without increasing the heartrate.. Increased oxygen uptake via theobromine could help out as well..
SuperSize could help you with energy and explosivity in shorter burst of cardio, like playing floorball or something.
Please do come back with how you experienced it!
