    Recently i joined the gym and within 2 weeks time i found myself unable to workout my right tricep...
    regardless of whatever exercise i try to do, my elbow seems to pain like hell... and i even feel something weird, like something moving out of its place... :confused:
    has anyone experienced this before and can anyone suggest what could i do?
    just to mention: generally when im on my laptop or doing work i lean on my elbows...
    thanks....

    Sounds like tricep tendonitis:

    1. Rest
    2. Ice it
    3. Take some Ibuprofen
    4. Revise your exercise regime - if you're injured within 2 weeks of starting training you are doing something seriously wrong.

    If there isn't a significant improvement within a week visit your GP.

    thank you...
    researched it up and now i'm more aware of what has actually happened..
    atm im taking rest and hopefully will be joining again once exams are over...

    it could be due to my exercise programme..
    basically i workout one day my back and the next my biceps/triceps and so on...
    is that putting too much pressure on the tendon?

    btw... im no bodybuilder...quite skinny and not strong
    been some time at the gym before but lack consistency

    If you've gone from not working out consistently to suddenly dedicating a whole day to working your arms (which will also be worked every time you train your back, chest, shoulders, etc) then your body probably isn't used to that amount of volume - it's far too much. Secondly if you're a novice lifter poor technique could also be an issue.

    Get on a good routine - forget about back days and arm days for the time being. Something like Starting Strength or Westside for Skinny *******s would be a good start, follow it to the 't' and you will make great progress.
