    Cant fully extend my left arm

    Well I had stopped workin out for sometime and came back to it this monday. I decided to do Bi's and Shoulders on the first day back. I lifted heavy and hard and its now thursday and i still cant fully extend my left arm, its still really sore, could that be the problem? My right arm is still sore but not as much and I could extend it furthur then my left but that could be because im a righty.

    What do you mean exactly by extension of the arm? Extension at the elbow or extension (abduction) of the arm at the shoulder?
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

    Probably a little less worrisome in that case, since it's not involving the shoulder. I'm with LouPac....likely overdid it after the lay off. Give it some rest and ease back into things a bit more slowly.

    It's just soreness. Give it time. I had the same thing happen when I started lifting again after a long time out.

    It's the biceps tendon, it gets weak quick.

    Just rest and take it easy next time.

    If your talking extension at the elbow, you probably annihilated your bi's and they are very sore and limiting your extension. I would just stretch the bi's gently until they are healed.
