    I just recently got it last week, my last arm work out it didn't hurt to bad, but towards the end it did. I then iced it up a few times, and its feeling a little better. Tomorrow is arm/back day so should i work out on it or just give it another weekly break? I'd feel worthless not doing any upper body workouts for a week and a half :ugh:. Does anybody know any other remedies to get rid of it faster? Oh and i'm only 19, should i be getting tendonitis? :noes:

    I got tendonitis in my right knee from skateboarding when I was only 13. It rarely acts up but I've always had shitty knees.

    Ice, anti-inflammitories, and a couple weeks break every once in a while. I know you don't want to hear the word "break", but it's very important that you do this occasionally to give yourself some time to heal if it keeps acting up.

    Here is how to take care of your elbows.

    1. Use equiblock dt or stop pain 30 minutes BEFORE training.
    2. Use neoprene sleeves.
    3. Flush the area with blood as a warm-up(ex. pushdownsx100)
    4. Stay away from ACCESSORY movements that severely iritate it (You'll just have to suck it up on ME)
    5. Ice for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off ASAP after workout. Ice is a miracle drug!! Nobody wants to take the time or effort to use it but it actually HEALS the problem. This is the most important step of all. Just put ice in a ziplock baggie and put it on the area that hurts. Ya the ice is gonna be cold and it does hurt for 5 or so minutes but then it will feel good. I also use these velcro ice packs from http://www.sporties.net/Detail.bok?no=16
    6. Take 800mg of ibuprofin 3x per day until your problem clears up.
    7. Find a good joint support formula such as Joint Complex by Gearman Nutrition at http://www.gearmannutrition.com/newsite/index.cfm?page=home.cfm or Syn-Flex and take it religously. It takes a long time to feel the results of this but you will eventually feel them.
    8. Supplement your diet with fish oil capsules and Vitamin C these are both natural anti-inflammatories.
    9. You must do ALL of these to help, you can't just pick one or two you must do them ALL.
    10. You can also do expand your hand bands, wrist curls and hammer curls, all of these make my elbows feel better.
    11. For severe issues get a big bowl and fill it with ice, water and 2 tablespoons of salt, stick your elbow directly in it and keep it in there for 10 minutes. Dry it off and wrap it with a heating pad for 10 minutes, repeat twice.
    12. If you have done all of the above and are still having problems then it's time to take a few days off.

  7. How do you know when you have this? Because my elbow also hurts but I think I might have hyper extended it.

    bdr, i've read studies where maximal dosage of ibuprofen (2400mg or 800x3) prevents the body from healing correctly and halts the protein synthesis required for muscle growth

    The ibuprofen is a temporary intervention to help an injury heal. Even if the studies you have read have merit, it is still more important in the long run to heal your injuries than to worry about protein synthesis being halted for a few weeks.

    What he said. All NSAID's have negative affects. I think not training at all because of pain would be worse. You can always take "other things" to counter the negative affects.

    fuck shin splints... i had them 8th grade all the way through senior year of high school. i would have been so much faster in XC and track if i wouldnt have had them.

    the studies shows that it PREVENTS you from healing - all it does it provide temporary pain relief. so dealing with the pain > preventing the healing from taking place.

    You need calcium. The first 3 month's I've worked out I've had no problems. Mainly because I was taking Muslce Milk as my protein which gave me enough calcium to not have that problem. Ever since I've changed proteins, I've had tendonitis issues with both my elbows. Take some calcium pills or simply drink more milk.
