Just wondering if anyone knows what this could be, i've tried a quick google search but am none the wiser. I did post this elsewhere on another forum i go on, but TBH i'm still none the wiser. I've just started doing dumbell training, have been doing it a few weeks and have really noticed a difference already in my strength and flexibility, although no aesthetic gains as yet (too early). However, whenever I do bicep curls, I tend to get a twinge of pain in my elbow, nearly always when i am lowering my arm and getting towards the starting point of the curl. Its quite painful, at times, only seems to occur after i've done a few curls, and only ever in my right elbow for some reason. By a strange coincidence, I also seem to get a slight pain in a similar fashion in my knee when doing lunges, but again, only ever in my right knee, never the left. And the pain in my knee is not as bad as it is in my elbow. When I was doing tricep exercises just before, my elbow actually cracked, which hurt quite a bit and i nearly dropped the dumbell on the floor. Thing is, if I dont get the pain, I know I can do quite a few curls, so I dont think i am overdoing it, or am I? I always have one day of doing weights followed by a day of rest. Sometimes two days if I am aching more than usual. Anyone got any ideas as to what it could be, and how it could be avoided? Should I lower the weight? Also, on the other place, one member suggested i should rest for a few weeks. As I've just started and I've been feeling better / stronger for it, this doesnt appeal to me - all that work undone.
