    Elbow problems while strength training

    Hello everybody,


    New to the forums here and this is my first topic. I've recently decided to start eating better and working out, but I have a problem that is stopping me in my tracks when it comes to my strength training right now.


    When I do certain exercises that extend my right elbow such as chest presses and tricep pulldowns, I have a locking / catching sensation in my elbow and I have to stop the exercise. When it happens I feel like if I extend my arm any further, a balloon or something might pop in my elbow. It's not necessarily painful, it just feels like a serious sensation of discomfort and pressure building up.


    I'm right-handed and due to my hobbies I think that this might be the result of long term repetitive motion with my right arm.


    It doesn't ever occur unless the joint is loaded, and even though I tried to do a proper warm up with the joint today (doing what elbow stretches I know such as pressing down on the wrist with a straight arm), it still happened.


    I think I need to see a doctor or someone about this but I don't know. Can anyone help shed light on this? Should I be worried about this?


    Thanks in advance,


    Doug

    Hi there, i do not see any big problem. It could be just any bursitis. I sugest you to use just cold compresses and to lower weight bearing to comfortable load for sometime.

    I hope it will help you!
