stretch and warmup.  Obviously.

Are you juicing?  If so it may be that the muscles are growing faster than the tendons can keep up with.  Glucoamine may also help, keeps joints and tendons healthy.

It happened to me when I was training to bench competition. It happened because was training heavy bench 2x a week, my muscles recovered but my tendons couldn't recover. I took Voltaren and decided to do only one heavy training of chest per week. After 3 weeks I was ok, although I could heal it before the competition.
