    Elbow/Biceps Pain

    Hi all! Hopefully this question has not yet been answered in previous posts. I swear, I searched everywhere..
    The problem is that I get elbow pain. To be precise, I mean the pain in the FRONT part of the elbow joint (fossa cubitalis, if it helps someone), where the arm flexes, or better said, where the distal biceps tendon attaches to the forearm (sorry for the terminology, im a doctor, but I really need to precisely point out, where the pain is, because google searches show either just forearm pain or biceps pain..but for me its different, maybe mixed).
    First time I had the pain was a few months ago while deadlifiting. I deadlift 1x/week, after a long time I tried my max. At that moment has nothing happened, but minutes after, while doing other back exercises, I started having pain in the over mentioned area. It got to the point, where I was almost not able to lift anything from the ground, including light dumbbells.
    It is really difficult for me to say, if the pain comes from distal biceps tendons or proximal tendons of the forearm muscles. When I suppinate my arm, so that the palm faces forward, the pain is more on the lateral/ outer side of the forearm muscles (in the vicinity of elbow), but also somewhere deeper. When it comes to when does it hurt the most, then it is acutally at the PUSHING exercies, mainly benchpress/ narrow grip benchpress, as I go with the weight down to the chest. Then is the pain actually unbearable. Biceps exercises, however, are not big of a struggle.

    Im sorry for such a long explanation, but it is not easy even for me to quite comprehend, where the pain comes from.
    P.S.: I dedalift with both hands over- grip, dont use mix grip. This week I started having that pain even though I didnt deadlift yet, so it must not necessarily be somehow connected just with that,although after deadlifting it got much worse. I even used straps this time, so that I ease the load from my forearms.
    Thanks for answers or tips!

    You didn't actually ask a Q in your long post. For the elbow issue, give yourself a physical exam and get an MRI, then diagnose yourself.

    For your workouts, assuming you clear yourself medically to work out, try using a swiss bar for BP and trap bar for DLs so you can use a neutral grip, and see if that helps at all while you heal.
