4 weeks ago i decided to get into weights again.
This time concentrating on nutrition and generally trying to do things right.
I am pleased with the results so far but am concerned with a dull ache ive been getting in my right arm. Not in the muscle but in the tendon on the upside of the elbow..
I dont believe i am over doing anything, but the ache occurs after only a few reps on a medium weight dumbbell. I am fully extending the arm during the exercise.
It may be ive torn something, but i really dont know...sorry for the rant but its hindering my progress,cos im worried about working thru the pain. Any advice is appreciated - Thankyou.
what's your weekly routine?
What exercise are you talking about?
Do you warm up?
Were you starting slowly 4 weeks ago? Have you got thru your initial soreness?
Where, Bicep, tricep, or in between...

3 times x 45min a week.
Usually it hurts when doing basic bicep curls
Yeah i warm up for about 5 minutes before.
Yeah i started slowly, and went through a brief period of soreness.
I am really not pushing that hard - just using light/medium weight.
Theres a dull ache/which is very uncomfortable in between the right arm.
Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about the area between your elbow and wrist? If so, I had that pain when I first began too...Im pretty sure its your forearms muscles...They just arent used to the direct work. Mine went away after about a month. I would just make sure not to work it beyond a tolerable amount of pain.
Thanks for your reply Minime, no its literally right on the upside of the elbow.
