    So i started working out about 4-5 months ago, and i also play badminton with my gf 3 times a week. Recently, my right elbow started hurting. It was just uncomforable until the past Saturday, when i went to bench. After benching, whenever i do the twisting motion, my elbow would hurt. I thought it healed on monday, and i went to do my shoulder routine. After my workout, i played badminton again and the pain came back. I haven't worked out since Monday. Should I hit the gym tonight? I'm feeling pretty good except some odd twisting motion that would cause a little pain.


    Thanks brolys :bowdown:

    update: when to workout last night. The first 2 sets were painful! Then my elbow, all of a sudden, got 2000% better. So i continued my routine. AFter workout, the pain came back, but not as bad. Now i'm a lot better, even though the pain is still there.

    Weird. My gf keeps on telling me to stop lifting so i won't hurt myself, but :dunno:

    Thanks guys!

    I think so. It sounds like it. When it was worst, I couldn't even turn the key to ignition when i tried to start my car. It almost always hurt when i twist something with my thumb or twist my forearm.

    Anyway, would it be ok if i go workout tonight, you think? I'm only going to do my chest tonight, or some back. :)

    are you getting numbness in your fingers and if so which ones? The answer to that will probably tell you which nerve is pinched and in which joint. Active Release Technique is something you should look into...

    nope, i'm not getting any numbness. It would be normal, until i try to twist my forearm. Then i lose all power and begin hurting. It would go away after i release .
