    stupid pain

    So... like half a year / 8 months ago i was in a place where there was no gym access and i did curls with a huge plastic bag full of magasines and books. I did concetration curls with slow motion negative, and because the plastic bag is huge it pulls your hand in a different way... wich is kind of harder on your forearm, pulls it more in a negatice way or yeah.. kinda hard for me to explain since english is not my main language. But yeah... i got a minor injury from it or something... it pulled my left arm in a bad way.. stretched or something.. It hurt for me to do pullups and curls and so on... So i rested couple of weeks and in time it seemed to go away. But now im doing physical labor thats pretty hard on the forearms and weightlifting too and the pain has come back recently... Maybe because work... i havent "pulled" anything while training atleast. BUt it hurts for me to do pullups and pulling motions in general atm. Its abit hard to explain but the location of the pain is at on my left forearm,if i rotate it so palm is facing down a muscle pops out right next to the lower part of the elbow ... There is where it hurts... very close to the elbow... but it isnt the elbow joint.

    Im stuck with this abit annoying siituation atm and im not daring doing pullups etc only pushing exercises since im afraid the pain will get worse.. I thought maybe someone has had similar pain in the same place or got some advice


    I could tough it out and work out pullups and so on it doesnt hurt doing the exercise very much just the spot becomes really painful to touch later.. the pain while doing exercise is minor... But it really demotivates me because im afraid it will go worse and then i cant workout at all etc so im careful

    Painful to touch later is concerning. Go see a doctor.

    If you fight through it, it could become a chronic injury. I would see a specialist if you can afford it.

    Stop the workouts completely for the upper body right now.

    Luckily i can do chest, shoulders and triceps, only hurts when i do back / biceps movements. Havent done pullups, curls etc for like 2 weeks now. Pain is starting to dissapear but i still feel it in there a little bit sometimes so im kinda scared if i start pulling again it wll go back as it was. So im gonna give back and biceps abit more rest and just focus on the pressing movements for now

    Just be aware that you could cauuse a muscle imbalance between the horiztonal pulling back muscles and the horizontal pushing chest muscles. Might be tricky to get that to heal as quickly with a physical job.
