I never had any of these issues until this past spring and it proceeded to get worse in recent months. I actually took time off the gym recently as my body was obviously telling me enough was enough. I seem to have a mix of golfers and tennis elbow with lots of forearm tightness.
My chiropractor has me massaging my ECRB muscle and tendon, which I do with my opposing elbow. It really allows me to get in there and apply some good steady force. This seems to be helping. I would prefer that he would just get up in there for the $60 that I pay him to see me for 5 minutes and crack my neck a few times...but it is what it is. I am also rolling out the top side of my forearm with a tennis ball...easier said than done.
It must partially be a blessing that comes with being over 40, as I am 42..

Yep I have some pains as well. Heavy lifting in general catches up with most everyone.
Sns joint support xt and fish oil help me out quite a bit and help more than just tendons. Can’t reccomend a good supp and warmup enough

I have tried virtually EVERYTHING supplement wise...natty and not natty. Nothing has succeeded in helping my tendons per say. I think it is more so the self massage/rolling work that seems to make the difference. Maybe Iconogenin has been helping too..
I have also been on Somatozine for the past month or so...and just started Ostarine yesterday. I used 2 bottles of BPC-157 when this all began last Spring and didn’t appreciate any notable difference.
I have been curious about Achilles by Antaeus Labs, as it is specifically made for joints and tendons. It also has a few novel ingredients.

Yeah. I get around 6000 mg fish oil daily. Tried Genoflex not really impressed. I just work thru the pain, I've accepted it as always just being there, I'll give the tumeric a shot though.

At age 61, I try to focus on what I call “strength range” reps (5-8) and “stamina range” reps (10-15).
After 35 years away from the weight room I was suffering from osteoarthritis, tendinitis, fasciitis, and bursitis in my shoulder, knee, and hip joints. Two years ago, I started hitting the weights again. My lifts are all in the strength and stamina rep ranges and now I rarely suffer from those conditions anymore.
The “power range” rep range (1-4) really puts too much stress on my connective tissues so I rarely do them.
Everyone is different, but the higher rep ranges have worked miracles for me.
It may be worth a try for you young guys as well.
I hope this helps.
Stay safe, stay strong!

I also went through many bottles of various brands of Cissus. I guess that didn’t really do much since I had been using that since last Spring. I have not reordered.
I am starting to think that I may have secondary inflammation form taking too many anti-inflammatories

i experience the same thing!! the pain lingers for weeks!! extremely frustrating. every time i try to up the weight and make gains .....boom.....tendon pain. i used adjustable forearm straps for a long time. those, seemed to help.

This is only regarding tennis elbow type tendon pain. But this plus a couple other forearm exercises each week has taken mine from being unable to pick up a gallon of milk to 85% pain free now....anyway - in case you guys are struggling with this type too

I worked out hard yesterday and now my glutes are sure. (Yes i sprained my ass) lol. How long do you guys wait before working that muscle group again? I am thinking at least today needs to be a rest day, but I want to get the opinions of other more experienced weight lifters.
