    nasty pain in arms as soon as a start?

    im on 500mg week test c and 75mg day T-bol and lately ive been getting some nasty pain in my arms and shoulders almost as soon as i start lifting heavy. im not sure if its really bad muscle pumps or what? about an hour after im done lifting it goes away and its fine. this morning was chest and tris and the pain was worse then ever. actually had to skip a few sets because i could barely move my arms. i dont get the pain in my chest at all? any explantion for this? i mean it F***ing hurts!

    How are you taking the Tbol, 75 preworkout? Try splitting it evenly through the day You may have to back off the dose a bit...

    It's not the gear... It's most likely an impingement.

    Be more specific about where it hurts and when

    i would go get it checked out by a doc. Hopefully its not something major, but you dont want to keep lifting with this pain as you coud tear or get hurt even worse.

    If everything checks out fine at the docs, then lower your tbol dose or drop it for a week and see how the pain does.

    Yeah that's kinda scary man. I'd go get checked out and just make sure its not something going on with your heart. It could be as simple as a strained muscle or a pinched nerve or something.

    Re: nasty pain in arms as soon as a start?

    The problem is stemming from your back believe it or not. Keep an open mind and consider that everything in your body is connected in some way.

    Here it is from a back view



    As you can see it tucks under and thru the shoulder joint. Any tightness or swelling of this will cause the shoulder joint to squeeze on it, restricting its range of motion. This in turn can "shorten" for lack of a better explanation the bicep thereby causing bicep pain.

    You need to do some myofascial release and stretching.

    Start by foam rolling your whole back. Especially the upper back. Once that is done, get a tennis ball and either lay on the floor or stand against a wall. Roll slowly around with the ball against your upper back. When you get to a tender spot or a lump, lean into it gently. As the pain decreases, increase the pressure. Very slowly roll around in that immediate area. Don't over-do this though. Limit the time to say 3 to 5 minutes at this one spot. Do both sides. After time, maybe a couple days it will loosen up for you.

    You should repeat this process prior to benching. Also doing some low cable rows with light weight prior to benching to warm up the back will help prevent this.

    I don't think aspirin is for inflammation you want ibuprofen for that

    I 110% back what POB, just stated here. I am a full believer in myofascial release whether be the foam roller or I use a Lacrosse ball for the particular spot shown above. Foam rolling has helped my back stay injury free for some time now, because of my tight hamstrings. I tend to get a tight upper back as well which I can feel radiate toward shoulder, and the use of the lacrosse ball up and down shoulder blade and backside of the arm does miracles for the tension.....as POB said Open mind.

    Re: nasty pain in arms as soon as a start?

    I had a simular injury about 6 or 7
    Years ago. I pinched a nerve in my neck
    It sent the pain to other areas in my
    Body. They call it "referred pain."
    It felt like a knot in my shoulder blade
    And then my right trap, then the pain
    Went to my right triceps and forearm
    And lat. very very painful. This lasted
    Months though.
    So it could be what POB is saying or
    You could be putting just enough pressure
    On a nerve when you start lifting heavy
    To cause pain and then goes away
    When you stop lifting and the pressure
    Is relieved.
    Stretching does help a great deal
    So does a good anti inflammatory
    You'll probably need something
    Stronger than ibuprofen.
    You should consider having a doctor
    Check it out.
