    I am not sure if this is the right forum to post in.

    But i had not trained for six month untill a couple of days ago.

    To cut the story short i managed to curl weights at the same level but the next day could not straighten my arms at all.

    No problem, but its getting worse. I no its not serious and will pass in few days but would you recommend taking ibuprofen or an inflamatory as unfortunaly i still have to work and it does hurt a fair bit?!

    Also, i know this is my own stupid fault.
     
  2. you strained your tensons/muscles if you dont think it's serious (tear, sprain, etc).

    take a hot 30min bath with the sore parts submerged. massage with hands and try to stretch more often (2x/day+).

    stretch before you workout next time (you should always) and after. do a warm-up set first.

    that's the trouble with curls... they're dangerous.

    in any event, take some ibuprofen, alternate warm and cool compresses, and work it through the full range of motion (do some light exercises to help get blood flow going). You'll be back to your normal worthless exercise performing self in not time.
