    bench/shoulder press pain

    Hi everybody,

    While doing shoulder & bench presses, I've recently had a sharp pain near my right elbow when I'm towards the bottom of my rep. I can do any other exercise fine, with no pain at all.

    Does this sound familiar to anybody? Any recommendations?

    Thanks for the help.

    -Josh

    make sure your doing a proper warm up before the exercise. Stretch tricep in between and after exercise. Otherwise don't do exercises that irritate your elbow and make it worse.
    Never Giving In.

    Ice inbetween workouts. Get enough rest.

    Strengthen your triceps and your grip.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
