    my elbow joint aches

    Right above my elbow, I get a pain in my tricep, but mroe like the tendons. Its on my right elbow, but i am a lefty. It really hurts when i do anything like head knockers or over the head DB presses. Straight bar pressdowns dont bother it, neither does v-bar presses. I have always been good about warming up my tri's before chest and shoulder presses especially. When i am just chillin, i will flex my tricep and the loudest pop (or crack) comes from my elbow joint.
    any suggestions on what it might be or a good way i should wrap it when i lift??
    thanks for reading
    JEEP is a 4 letter word, therefore it must be dirty.

    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
