    Honestly, bicep work bores me, they are pretty much "beach muscles" for the most part IMO.

    I disagree.

    Bicep work is boring, but they're a lot more than beach muscles. Weak biceps can lead to elbow pain, instability at the elbow and shoulder, and a weaker bench press.

    Yeah, because of the way biceps act as a stabilizer for those joints, having weak biceps will lead to a much less stable bench press. Without a stable base to press from, it will severely limit the amount of weight you can bench.

    On top of that, not training the biceps is asking for overuse injuries from all of your other training (elbow tendinitis usually). I don't know of very many guys who are able to bench very much with crippling elbow pain lol. Side note: I also don't know of many guys who bench press 500+ that don't train their biceps regularly

    I was agreeing that it has become boring for me to do them. I understand the stabilizer muscles need work.

    In my teens, the arm day was the one, if I could only choose one, that wouldn't skip if I had to miss one. Now that's not the case.

    OK, makes sense. In this case pressing does not hurt, pulling does, so I need to let it heal.

    Outer portion of the joint, I believe it is the lateral epicondyle that is most painful

    About 3 weeks. Thought it was healed up until I did hammer curls about 2 weeks ago and they set them to screaming. A few sets of wide grip bb curls last week bothered them some but the alternating db curls could not even get a rep done.
