elbow pain on pullovers.

For starters this is my first elbow injury, and I know nothing about injuries in general, so I'll explain what happend and that will probably help you get an idea of what went wrong. My excerises yesterday where bench, cleans, then i felt pain on PJR pullovers.

I hadn't gone to the gym in 7 days, but i was stubborn and used a weight that was currently to heavy for me on pullovers. I got the weight up, and on the 1st negative portion of the movement I felt pain in my right elbow joint. I then chose a weight 10 lbs lighter but stopped after 4 reps because I was afraid of further injury.

Then I did tricep pushdowns, which still caused much less pain then the pullovers.

So my questions are, what did i do to my elbow, what should i do to heal it, and what precausions should i take in the gym.

Let me add that I can work through the pain very easily, but i dont want to take the risk of hurting it more.

First thing to do is ice the injury/area, and don't put any stress on that area.

Did you hear any tearing? Like a shirt ripping type of thing? Check the area and around it next morning for any discoloration, yellows, blues.

And rest for now, don't train because you can make it worse.

No swelling, no popping, no discolerations. only pain when trying to move something with force. Everyday activities don't give any pain.

For pain relief you might want to try "Glucosa Cream" by VPX. I use this product with excellent results.

For preventative, you might try elbow wraps. Will keep joint warm and give some support.
