I have the same problem bro. Recently after a chest workout with the bench, I stood up and felt a pain in my left elbow. The thing thats buggiin me out is that its like a vein or a ligament in the tricep rubbing against my elbow and becomes very painiful nd annoying.. its pissing me the f*** off because my strenght has been increasing alot and now i have to stay away from the gym. I dont know if this is exactly what you are experiencing, but def. keep iceing it. maybe before a workout warm ur elbows up with some heat pads? I aint a doctor but if some1 else on here can help us with advice, please do, cuz it sucks not bein in the gym.

I have chronic tendonitis in both of my elbows. Ice, rest, and taking Cissus (search) seem to be the best combination I have found.

if the pain has remained this long (for trying those solutions) it could be time to see a doctor to make sure every thing is in line. I was off of numerouse tricept exercises a while back due to an elbow injury and after taking 3-4 weeks off training it on certain tri exercises I liked that were causing disomfort it went away but it may be time to get it checked out if nothing seems to be working.

either that or u have tennis elbow. Is the pain noticable on the outside of the elbow? The side away from your body? Either way dude, don't muck around and put yourself out of the game. See a physio, who will either give you excercises to rehab it back to full health or refer you to a personal trainer who can do it for you. Dont try to be a self doctor

definatley see a physio. You might have nervous interference... go see a physio man. Im a personal trainer and ive seen alot of injuries and everyone tries to wave it off when i say go see a physio... dont make the same mistake, get it professionally checked out and the physio will tell you exactly what you need to do =) No one on this site is qualified to do an internet diagnosis lol, or any diagnosis for that matter.

dont spend your good money on med help just yet! ive had elbow pain for many years and they really cant help you much besides give you pain meds. i lift regularly and work a construction job, working with your hands(gripping,weightlifting etc causes a muscle imbalance in your forearms and in your tricep tendons. ive been using thick rubber bands,put them on your fingers and thumb and slowly open and close your hand. use 1 at first and u can add smaller bands to increase resistance. i got the idea from ironmind enterprises,they sell bands in various strengths i just buy a big bag of thick bands at staples. i still have some pain but not near as much as before.

hey guys you might want to try fish oils. It helps out the joints.... They are very inexpensive....

Use Cissus or even better Cissus RX for joint pain. That will most likely help if nothing else has.
Also vitamin C helps the joints as well. You can buy it in pill form if you dont like OJ that much. lol

I have the same problem after doing 10x10 for 4 months increasing weight every time I got all sets and reps without having to drop weight by 5 pounds.
Well that was over the colder months. I decided to stop training my upper body with weights and do calisthenics instead. I am still gonna do my squats and dead and with the extra time I am gonna start jogging.
So every other day i am gonna either jog or do calisthenics for my upper body strength probably until it gets cold out again. Then I am gonna go back to the weights on the upper body but I am gonna go easier on myself to hopefully avoid recurrence.
Depending on how ripped I can get from all of the jogging I am gonna be doing I would consider doing 6 months of powerlifting over the cold months next year. I used to powerlift on a club in high schoool and the coach was Bill Seno himself. Google his name and see who he is I just bought his book Pushing For Power and I only know his way of doing powerlifting.
But anyway like I was saying about those calisthenics I do three exercises each one for ten minutes one set per minute every other day. And I do them as slow as possible starting out with a bigger number depending on my strength for the given exercise and finish with a smaller number becasue doing reps slow is hard.
The three exercises that I am doing basically workout my whole upper body muscles and squats and deads take care of the rest in my opinion. Those exercises are inverted hand stand push ups, rows with body weight (I use a piece of equipment called an ultimate body flex for theses) or chin ups (which I am still too injured to do), and push ups.
