help I think I overtrained
i think i got a big problem last week i took my last shot of test and i wanted to get in some real heavy training so i hit every thing like a mad man. Then i took 2 days off and went yesterday to do chest and the inside of my elbow hert bad exspecialy around lower bicep. I could barley lift any heavy weight and could not do any flys it sucked. now i'm nevious because i'm going to start pct next week and i feel i need to be lifting alot to keep my gains. should i just hit legs a litle extra and stay away from any thing that bothers that area for a while or what

actually, when coming off aas you should reduce your training intensity and/or frequency. Your body cannot continue with the same stress at all, and you will surely overtrain if you try "lifting alot to keep my gains". Give that area rest for a week. Usually my small pains clear up quickly.

i had the same pain when i was on cycle.. i think it has something to do with your tendons in that area... i did some stretching and eased up slightly and that seemed to help a lot..

Youre ok, Id take a week off from the gym. Active rest...ride a bike...play some basket ball...something active.....hell, even swim if you can.
Keep in mind that as your muscles grow much more quickly while on gear, your tendons and joints cant keep up....do your pct as normal. When you go back to the gym after the rest, youll feel fresh and maybe even a little stronger.
I personally like to take 2 weeks off after a cycle. I always come back feeling bigger.

Dent Depot, whats the deal with taking 2 weeks off after a cycle? I've never heard that it seems strange to me. Is it pretty common? I've never done a cycle.

As for you not having done a cycle yet....bravo for waiting! Youre 20 and have some natural growing still to do! But still, dont be affraid to take time off!
