Question: I experience elbow pain every time I start weight training and it heals after 2-3 weeks. What should I do?
It could be four (4) things:
- The weight you are lifting is too heavy for your muscles to handle at the moment
- You progressed and increased the weight suddenly
- There could be something wrong with your form when you are performing the exercise
- You forgot to warm up your arm and forearm muscles
Always warm up and stretch the muscles you've exercised. You can check what specific elbow injury you have by watching this other video by Rick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsF-wsqVw0I&t=2s
