So my left arms bicep tendon hurts...enough to bother me when I supinate AND pronate my arm with weight training of course.

Exactly like in the picture



What would possibly be, a small tear maybe?

Im still working out though...arms, back..should I cut them back?

I seem to have a similar problem to you but yours sound more severe. Whenever I twist my hand i get alot of pressure around the elbow and outer part of my forearm too. I think preacher curls with heavy weight seem to irritate it the most :S

Mine got so bad during prep that I had to severely limit my biceps training weight. It started to hurt all the time, even just driving a car. I'll need to not train biceps directly for a month or so and get some deep tissue work done.

I get that once in a while too, but mostly from kendo.  They make wraps that have velcro.  It helps hold heat in so that it can heal.  I have one that looks like this:



Get some of those and wrap it up at night.  Plus lay off the activity with that arm for a couple weeks at least.  This deep tissue ointment works good too:

If it persists you might need to get it checked from a doc and do an MRI to check for tears, and then whatever the next steps are to fix it based on what they find.  I hope that helps!   Wink

Ice. Religiously.

Mine hurt for months, tried to train through it, ice after every workout involving arm movement(upper body) and ice through out the day when I could. Went away quickly after I started that.

Is that the kind with the air-cell that you position over the desired area, or is it just a neoprene band?

I've seen lots of people wear what appear to be oridinary cotton wristband-type bands around their forearms - often with the UA logo on them.
I never fully understood their purpose(s): are they supposed to provide heat therapy? They don't seem to offer anykind of substantial compression support.

More importantly, do they actually do anything worthwhile?

The one that I use does not have any air bubbles in it.  It is for compression support and has the neoprene material with velcro on the outside that goes all the way around.  The velcro lets you adjust the tension which helps to hold things in place sort of like leg wraps for squats.  Plus it holds in your natural body heat and for me that seems to help it heal.  I have had good results with it. 

I think I have seen the other ones you are talking about.  Those look like a sweat band.  If there is no tension to create some sort of compression then it is probably worthless.  If you go to a regular tennis shop they have all sorts of compression stuff.  Hope that helps.

It's to capture the body heat, which should increase the healing blood flow into the area. Wearing it too tight can block a normal blood flow into the area. A heat treatment lotion/compound/pack will do the same thing, usually while wearing long sleeve. Even more important while in the gym. It will loosen up tight muscle/joints, etc. Heat works best on chronic injuries

Ice works best on swelling and pain. Ice narrows the blood vessels (heat the opposite). Ice is good on a acute or short term problem.  Runners will ice the (usually) knee or ankle joints after working out.  With either ice or heat, each should only be applies for short period of 10 to 15 minutes. Let the body part return to a somewhat normal state than repeat the ice or heat treatment.

As rest is a prime healer, I might suggest to Meso_z just that.  Perhaps this might only be slight nerve damage, with can be helped with massage, etc.  Common logic suggest no curling or pulling motions for awhile. Good Luck.

Thanks for that clarification on heat vs ice.  I always have a tough time being able to tell when to use which one and when.  But that does help.   Smiley

It seems to have gone away in my last workout...a slight pain maybe but not as much as it was.

I specialise in active release techniques (ART) and it is more than likely an injury to your pronator teres muscle.  Go to activerelease.com and see if there is a practitioner in your area certified in the upper extremity (Ue).

It is a process of manually forcing the scar tissue off of the muscle and once this is done you should be back to 100%.  Many times I have released this in the first treatment.

I had it terrible for two years. Just moving my fingures would hurt. I did everything to try and stop the pain with every kinda wrap, message, doctor, and medicine. I got a cortizone shot and it went away for a little while only to return even more painful. Then I hit the ice pack. Advice from Getbig. It surpisingly went away completely and I thought the pain would be there for the rest of my life. I ice my elbows twice every single day just in fear of that pain returning.
cool, thanks..  Cool

Thanks boss, I been keeping it wrapped.  I took 5 days off from lifting with ice and stuff.  I went in last night and did my usual work outs but just with less weight to not strain too much.  Wore the wrap through workout too and it seems to do ok.  Probably keep up that pattern of wrap and light weight for a few more weeks till it goes away completely.  I used to only get this from kendo only but as I get older (damn it)... lol  the old elbow acts up once in a while.

heh heh!  Well the HGH might help tendons and soft tissue heal, but I don't think the deca would do that would it?
