When you lift and perform exercises involving your arms, the forearm and triceps muscles contract, these muscles become tighter after some time.
Tight muscles pull and put tension on the tendons and joints, which create pain. Therefore, the forearm and triceps need to release and return to their normal relaxed state.
If your elbow hurts when lifting weights or you experience elbow pain after lifting weights, it is a sign you have restricted forearm and triceps muscles that are unable to release. These tight muscles are pulling and putting tension on your elbow tendons. As a result, the tendons become inflamed and cause pain during exercise or after lifting.
As a bodybuilder, for many years, I struggled with elbow tendonitis, elbow pain when lifting, and elbow pain after lifting.
I experienced bench press elbow pain (video below), sharp and severe elbow pain when lifting or gripping weights, tennis elbow and golfer's elbow.
During upper body and triceps workouts, I struggled with skull crushers elbow pain, push ups elbow pain, and elbow pain from pull ups.
This article will show you a "NO BS" strategy to fix and cure weight training elbow tendonitis and elbow pain. It's called the TitaniumPhysique Formula. I used it to treat and fix chronic tendonitis in my elbows.
Let's begin with why lifting weights cause elbow tendonitis and elbow pain.
Lifting with elbow tendonitis pain. Wearing elbow sleeves while performing bench press.
What causes elbow pain and elbow tendonitis in athletes, gymgoers and weightlifters, and why does it happen? The ROOT causes of weightlifting elbow tendonitis are:
When we do weight training, it strengthens muscles, but it also inflames tendons, joints, and ligaments in the body.
When the workout involves your arms (e.g. triceps workout, bench press, shoulder press, push-ups), the inflammation of the elbow tendons from lifting produces a "burning" sensation of pain in the elbow.
The burning feeling and pain in the elbow joint is a sign of acute inflammation.
With time, the elbow tendon heals, and the tendonitis pain goes away. But, when the elbow tendon is unable to recover, and the inflamed tendon pain continues for more than three months, it becomes a chronic inflammatory condition.
Chronic inflammation is a state where the inflammatory process that allows the body to heal is not working. When left untreated, this condition breaks down the body.
Most athletes, gymgoers, and weight lifters with chronic inflammation experience:
Calcium helps muscles contract. Magnesium helps muscles relax. When the body has excess calcium (often the case), muscles cannot relax and remain tense.
According to The Magnesium Miracle (a scientific reference on the health effects of magnesium on the body), heavy exercise depletes magnesium in athletes.
As such, it is crucial for athletes and those involved in weight training to actively replenish magnesium in the body.
40% of magnesium in the body is found in the muscles. Twitching muscles, muscle cramps and muscle spasms are signs of low magnesium levels in the body.

Twitching forearm and triceps, muscle cramps and muscle spasms are signs of low magnesium levels in the body.
Magnesium also dissolves calcium and prevents calcification of soft tissues like tendons.
Calcification occurs when there is excess calcium in the body. Calcification hardens soft tissues, which can lead to elbow pain.
When you lift and perform exercises involving your arms (e.g. bench press, triceps extension, cable triceps pushdowns), the forearm and tricep muscles contract, become tighter, and after some time, lose their elasticity or pliability.
Muscle restriction occurs when inelastic muscle fibers become shortened and unable to release and lengthen back to their normal state.
In the case of elbow pain, lifting a weight too heavy or using bad weightlifting form can strain or overstretch the forearm and triceps and cause these muscles to become restricted. When the forearm and tricep muscles get restricted, they shorten and tighten up.
Tight forearm and tricep muscles pull and put tension on the elbow tendon and joint. As a result, it inflames the elbow tendon and causes elbow pain when lifting.
Athletes, gymgoers, and weight lifters with restricted and dysfunctional forearm and triceps experience:
To fix and get rid of elbow pain, or prevent elbow tendonitis from coming back, it is essential to understand the different types of elbow tendonitis so you can treat and heal the source of injury.
The types of elbow tendonitis most weightlifters experience include:
Common weightlifting elbow tendonitis symptoms include:
The following is an overview of weight training tennis elbow and how to fix it:
What is tennis elbow? -Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is a type of elbow tendonitis where pain occurs outside of the elbow joint.
Why does tennis elbow happen? - The tendon on the outside of the elbow gets overstressed through repetitive weight lifting exercises and movements, and as a result, it leads to inflammatory pain in the tendon.
How does tennis elbow happen? - The forearm muscles contract when you do any exercise that involves your arm. Over time as you continue to lift, the forearm muscles (Extensor Carpi and Radialis Brevis "ECRB") tighten up and get shorter.
These shortened forearm muscles pull and put tension on the extensor tendon, decreasing the extensor tendon's elasticity.
As a result, the extensor tendon gets overloaded during weight lifting and creates pain in the elbow.

How does tennis elbow affect weight training? Athletes and weightlifters with tennis elbow experience pain during exercises that stress the extensor tendon and ECRB muscles. Common exercises include:
Tennis elbow symptoms when lifting include:
Here is a summary of the fastest way to treat and fix tennis elbow from lifting weights. For detailed overview on how to fix tennis elbow, check out the section below: "How to Treat and Cure Tendonitis Elbow Pain (Using the TitaniumPhysique Formula)"
Doing close-grip bench press for the triceps. "Push" exercises such as bench press aggravates tennis elbow in athletes and weightlifters.
The following is an overview of weight training golfer's elbow and how to fix it:
What is golfer's elbow? - Golfer's elbow or medial epicondylitis is a type of elbow tendonitis where pain occurs on the inside of the elbow joint.
Why does golfer's elbow happen? - The tendon on the inside of the elbow gets overstressed through repetitive weight lifting exercises and movements, and as a result, it leads to inflammatory pain in the tendon.
How does golfer's elbow happen? - The forearm muscles contract when you do any exercise that involves your arm. Over time as you continue to lift, the forearm flexor muscles (Pronator Teres, Flexor Carpi Radialis) tighten up and get shorter.
These shortened forearm muscles pull and put tension on the elbow tendon, decreasing the elasticity of the medial elbow tendon. As a result, the tendon gets overloaded during weight lifting and creates pain.

Doing barbell preacher curls. "Pull" exercises such as bicep curls aggravates golfers elbow in athletes and weightlifters.
What is acute elbow pain? Acute elbow pain is an inflammatory pain experienced during or immediately after lifting weights.
Inflammation is a process were your immune system releases chemicals to fight and protect the body from infections and injuries.
Lifting a weight too heavy or using bad weight lifting form can strain and cause injury to muscles and tendons. When this happens, it triggers your body's inflammatory response.
The inflammatory response creates pain and discomfort in the elbow joint immediately after lifting or the day after working out.
Acute elbow inflammation typically lasts a few days to a few weeks.
When the inflammation symptoms do not go away, and the pain lasts for more than three months, it becomes a chronic condition.
What is chronic elbow pain? Elbow pain is defined as chronic when the injury does not heal, and the pain continues for more than three months.
Depending on the stage of the tendonitis, an athlete with chronic elbow injury may experience:
When the body's inflammatory response is unable to heal the elbow injury and the pain becomes chronic, it starts a progressive and irreversible deterioration of the elbow tendon - known as degenerative tendinopathy.
Tendonitis is the inflammation of tendon that creates acute inflammatory pain, and tendinosis is the deterioration of tendon collagen due to repetitive stress and chronic injury.
Tendinosis results in the loss of strength in the tendon and often lead to tendon tear or rupture.
For example, continually lifting weights with elbow tendonitis (i.e. inflammatory elbow pain) can lead to elbow tendinosis (i.e. degeneration of elbow tendon).
Initially, the injured elbow tendon starts with micro-tear damages (i.e. elbow tendonitis).
As you continue to lift, the elbow tendon worsens and becomes degenerative (i.e. elbow tendinosis). Ultimately, this can cause the elbow tendon to rupture.
Acute elbow pain is elbow tendonitis. Chronic elbow pain is elbow tendinosis.

We've gone over the ROOT causes of "elbow pain from lifting weights", the types of elbow tendonitis and weightlifting elbow injuries. Now, let's go over how to fix it.
In this section, we will cover:
Before & After results. I fixed my chronic elbow tendonitis (tennis elbow and golfer's elbow).
Elbow pain after lifting is an acute inflammatory condition. If you get elbow pain after lifting weights and experience any of the following:
The best treatment is the R.I.C.E. Method (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevate).
Benefits of RICE Method
R.I.C.E helps treat acute inflammatory pain. Weight lifters with elbow inflammation experience burning pain and redness around the elbow joint after lifting.
Applying ice, also known as cold therapy, on the elbow joint after working out reduce inflammation and help the inflamed elbow tendon calm and heal.
How to Apply Cold Therapy for Elbow Pain at Home
Limitations of RICE Method
R.I.C.E treats acute inflammatory symptoms but does not fix the source of the pain. As a result, the pain returns and often worsens when the athlete resumes lifting.
If your elbow tendonitis does not heal using the R.I.C.E protocol and the pain continues for over three months, it is considered a chronic inflammatory condition.
To treat and get rid of chronic elbow pain, you can use conventional short-term remedies (that provide temporarily relief and reduce the pain) or fix the root cause of the tendonitis (to cure the pain).
First, let's go over the short-term remedies for elbow tendonitis.
Conventional elbow tendonitis remedies include joint supplements and vitamins, painkillers (NSAIDs), physical therapy, elbow braces, elbow straps, elbow sleeves, kinesiology tape, and anti-inflammatory topical oils and creams.
As someone who struggled with chronic elbow tendonitis pain from lifting weights, I've tried these typical remedies during my search to fix this problem.
Are conventional remedies the best treatments for weightlifting elbow pain? Do they work?
In my research on this topic and eight years of experience as a trainer and bodybuilder, I found that conventional remedies produced little-to-no relief for weightlifting elbow pain.
Conventional remedies are ineffective because they relieve elbow tendonitis symptoms, not the ROOT cause of the pain. As a result, the elbow tendonitis does not heal and often comes back. If you've tried these solutions, I am sure you can relate.
The following is a list of typical elbow tendonitis remedies and their pros and cons.
Anti-Inflammatory Gel, Pain Killers, Sports Tape and Elbow Sleeves for Tendonitis Pain.
Joint supplements and joint vitamins are standard tendonitis treatment options. Most joint supplements contain Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and Chondroitin. The cartilage of joints contains MSM and chondroitin.
It's generally believed these supplements help ease pain in the joints and promote good joint health.
Pro: Joint supplements can provide short-term relief for acute elbow tendonitis pain. As such, they are beneficial when used as part of a "maintenance routine" to prevent tendonitis pain.
Con: In my search to treat and fix my chronic elbow tendonitis, I supplemented with MSM, Chondroitin, Turmeric, and Fish Oil (for years).
These supplements did not provide relief because they cannot fix the root cause of weightlifting elbow pain.
According to a 2016 Arthritis & Rheumatology research, MSM and Chondroitin provided no benefit in reducing chronic joint pain.
Pro: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or painkillers are another popular elbow tendonitis treatment option. They help reduce acute inflammation in the body.
By reducing inflammation, NSAIDs temporarily reduce elbow joint pain.
Con: Painkillers treat the symptoms and not the root cause of chronic elbow tendonitis. As a result, the elbow pain usually returns.
Research shows NSAIDs' long-term use can create health issues such as gastrointestinal side effects and kidney disease.
Pro: A cortisone shot is a steroid medication injected into the problem joint (e.g. elbow joint). The steroid provides relief by temporarily suppressing inflammatory pain in the affected joints.
The relief from a cortisone shot usually lasts for six weeks to six months.
Con: The cortisone shot only suppresses the pain. As a result, when the effects of the steroid wear off, the elbow pain immediately comes back.
Repeated use of cortisone injections creates long-term health side effects such as damaged cartilage, joint infection, and nerve damage.
Most topical tendonitis relief options like pain relief oils, creams, sprays, and gels contain MSM or other anti-inflammatory medications.
Pro: They can help treat acute elbow inflammatory pain (new elbow injuries less than three months old).
They can also be useful when used as part of a "maintenance routine" to prevent tendonitis pain. For example, when used as a lubricant to massage forearm and triceps after working out.
Con: If your elbow tendonitis pain is chronic (elbow pain is more than three months old), topical pain relief solutions provide little to no relief in reducing elbow pain.
Topical solutions cannot treat the root cause of weightlifting elbow pain.
Unlike elbow tendonitis (i.e. elbow tendon that creates inflammatory pain), elbow tendinosis is the degeneration of elbow tendon collagen.
Elbow tendinosis results in the loss of strength in the elbow tendon and mobility of the arm.
Pro: Strength therapy is necessary for elbow tendinosis treatment. Strength therapy is often required to heal degenerative elbow tendons and regain full arm strength and mobility.
Con: When used out of step (often the case), physical therapy for elbow pain can be a waste of time for most people.
Before treating elbow tendinosis with elbow strengthening exercises, it is necessary to fix chronic inflammation, magnesium deficiency, and muscle restriction created by weight training.
Another popular elbow tendonitis solution for weightlifters is elbow joint sleeves, elbow straps, and elbow support braces.
Pro: These solutions help by compressing the elbow tendon and joint. As a result, it temporarily reduces elbow pain when lifting weights.
Con: Elbow sleeve, straps, and support braces provide short-term relief by covering up the problem, which only prolongs tendonitis.
Untreated elbow tendonitis can lead to elbow tendinosis and cause irreversible elbow tendon and joint degeneration.
Athletes commonly use sports tape and KT tape to treat tendonitis. They provide support for injured muscles and tendons.
Pro: When applied correctly, sports tapes can reduce elbow injury pain and elbow tendonitis pain.
Con: Sports tapes and kinesiology therapy (used in the wrong way) cover up the problem, which only prolongs tendonitis.
Untreated elbow tendonitis can lead to elbow tendinosis and cause irreversible elbow tendon and joint degeneration.
There two types of pain relief patches: medicated and non-medicated.
Medicated patches contain nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication and are applied directly to the pain area (e.g. elbow joint) to relieve pain.
Non-medicated pain relief patches, like nanotech patches, claim to use nanotechnology to support your body's natural ability to fight pain.
Pro - Medicated Patch: Medicated patches can provide short-term relief for tendonitis elbow pain. The relief typically lasts for a few hours.
Con - Medicated Patch: Medicated patches temporarily mask the pain, which only prolongs the real problem.
They do not fix the root cause of the tendonitis, so the elbow pain comes back after resuming lifting. Medicated patches can also cause long term gastrointestinal (stomach and gut) side effects.
Pro - Nanotech Patches: They can be useful when used as part of a "maintenance routine" to prevent elbow tendonitis. For example, when used post-workout to treat acute elbow inflammatory pain.
Con - Nanotech Patches: They cannot fix the root causes that create weight lifting elbow pain. As a result, nanotech patches provide limited benefit in reducing chronic elbow pain.
Like physical therapy, stretching plays a vital role in treating chronic elbow tendonitis.
Pro: Stretching the forearms and triceps helps lengthen these muscles. It increases blood, nutrients, oxygen and removes waste from the muscles and tendons. As a result, it helps elbow injuries heal faster.
When forearm and triceps muscles and tendons are in a healthy lengthened state, elbow tendonitis pain decreases.
Con: Like physical therapy, when used out of step (often the case), stretching does little to relieve tendonitis elbow pain.
Before treating elbow pain with stretching exercises, it is necessary to fix the chronic inflammation, magnesium deficiency, and muscle restriction created by weight training.
The remedies above are the usual options for elbow tendonitis. If you experience elbow pain when lifting weights, you've probably tried these short-term solutions.
These traditional remedies only treat acute symptoms of tendonitis, not the root cause. It is why that elbow pain never heals and comes back.
Now let's go over how to fix tendonitis using the TitaniumPhysique Formula, the unique strategy I used to cure my chronic elbow pain (see photo below).
I fixed my chronic elbow injury and elbow tendonitis using the TitaniumPhysique Formula.
What is the TitaniumPhysique 3 Step Formula?
The TitaniumPhysique Formula is a unique and natural strategy that can quickly treat, fix, and cure chronic elbow tendonitis, elbow pain, and elbow tendonitis symptoms, including:
Additionally, it helps prevent elbow tendonitis from developing or coming back.
It is based on current and extensive scientific research relating to the following: tendinopathy, sports medicine and sports injury, weight lifting injuries, musculoskeletal pain treatment and management, nutrition, supplementation, and, strength therapy and conditioning.
As an athlete and weightlifter, I created TitaniumPhysique for athletes and anyone who does weight training.
I've combined these scientific studies and eight years of experience as a trainer, nutritionist, bodybuilder, and physique athlete to create the TitaniumPhysique Formula.
To learn how the TitaniumPhysique Formula works, and why it heals chronic weight training tendonitis, check out this helpful article (or video) I wrote about tendonitis treatment.
Here is an overview of how to fix elbow tendonitis or elbow pain from lifting weights, using the TitaniumPhysique Formula:
The food you eat is critical in getting rid of inflammatory pain. It is either going to cause and aggravate inflammation in the body or fight pain and provide relief.
According to The China Study Solution (the most comprehensive scientific study on nutrition), animal foods and animal products aggravate inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.
Combined with the stress frequent and prolonged weight lifting creates on the tendons and joints, the body unavoidably gets into a chronic inflammatory state.
This systemic cycle of inflammatory foods and physical fitness is the number #1 reason most athletes and gymgoers experience tendonitis elbow pain after a few months of lifting weights.
Joint supplements cannot fix weight training chronic inflammation because it is a systemic problem.
To fix chronic elbow tendonitis, you can use a simple two-week whole-food plant-based regimen to reset and eliminate chronic inflammation in the body.
A plant-based diet can help eliminate joint pain and reverse chronic diseases like arthritis.
- The China Study Solution: The Simple Way to Lose Weight and Reverse Illness, Using a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet.
Implementing a whole-food plant-based (WFPB) regimen to reset chronic inflammation does not require becoming a vegetarian or vegan if that is not your goal. It is only a tool to reset.
There is a specific way to use this strategy to get the fastest and best results, especially for athletes and gymgoers focused on building muscles, strength, losing weight and staying lean.
The TitaniumPhysique Guide provides a step-by-step plan to achieve this.
Magnesium is a potent anti-inflammatory that can help reduce pain. It also plays a vital role in helping muscles relax.
Twitching forearm and triceps, muscle cramps and muscle spasms in the arms are signs of low magnesium levels in the body.
Heavy exercise, sauna therapy and workout stimulants deplete magnesium in athletes.
As such, it is crucial for athletes and those involved in weight training to actively take steps to replenish magnesium and use the right kind of magnesium to get the therapeutic effect.
The TitaniumPhysique Guide provides an easy-to-follow magnesium supplementation plan for athletes, weight lifters and bodybuilders.

High protein foods and sports supplements create acidity in the body. When your body is alkaline, you will have more energy and less joint pain.
Going alkaline is simple. Anyone can take simple steps to become more alkaline and less acidic. Here are four simple ways to become more alkaline.
Restricted forearm and triceps put tension on the elbow tendons and elbow joint, which creates pain.
When you release tight forearm and triceps muscles, it will increase the elbow tendon's elasticity and immediately reduce elbow tendonitis pain.
This step focuses on releasing chronically tight and restricted forearm and triceps to stimulate repair and stop elbow pain.
Chronic elbow tendonitis cannot heal if the body is in a constant inflammatory state.
After reducing chronic inflammation, we can heal elbow injuries and eliminate elbow pain easier and faster.
Restricted and dysfunctional forearm and triceps that cause elbow pain develops over many years. As such, it is crucial to use the correct technique to get the best results.
During this process, it is also vital to strengthen the elbow joint by doing mobility and strengthening exercises for the forearm and elbow.
Strengthening exercises are therapeutic and can help the elbow tendon heal faster and regain full strength for maximum performance.
The TitaniumPhysique program provides full-body joint mobility exercise videos and step-by-step videos to release restricted muscles to fix elbow pain.
The following are tools you can use to release restricted forearm and triceps to fix and heal tendonitis elbow pain.
Massage balls effectively release tight muscles and help treat and fix elbow pain and elbow tendonitis, including golfer's elbow and tennis elbow.
If you experience elbow pain when lifting, elbow pain when benching, elbow pain during push-ups or elbow pain during pull-ups, these tools will help.
For example, the Beastie Ball's aggressive design can target and release the forearms' extensor muscles.
The BodyStar Ball is less aggressive and can be used to treat the arm's sensitive parts, like the forearm flexor muscles, the inner tricep muscles, and medial elbow tendon.
These myofascial tools treat elbow pain by releasing restricted forearm and triceps to provide relief to the elbow tendon and elbow joint.
Restricted forearm and triceps pull and put tension on the elbow tendons. As a result, the elbow tendons become inflamed and cause pain during exercise or after lifting.
The ROOT causes of weight lifting elbow pain are chronic inflammation, magnesium deficiency, and muscle restriction.
Athletes and weight lifters with elbow tendonitis experience golfer's elbow (inner elbow pain) or tennis elbow (outer elbow pain) when lifting weights.
Traditional remedies like painkillers, joint supplements, vitamins, elbow braces, and anti-inflammatory creams can help with acute elbow tendonitis but are not effective in treating chronic elbow tendonitis.
With these options, the elbow tendonitis comes back and often gets worse as you continue to lift.
To fix chronic elbow tendonitis, you need to:
The TitaniumPhysique Formula is a unique and straightforward strategy for tendonitis treatment.
The TitaniumPhysique Guide will show you the fastest way to reduce chronic inflammation, replenish muscle magnesium levels, and release restricted muscles.
It can help you treat, heal, get rid of and prevent weight lifting elbow injuries.
Tendonitis pain can turn your passion for fitness into a chore and rob you of the motivation to work out.
Yet, everyone who lifts weights experiences elbow tendonitis at some point.
You don't have to give up your passion for lifting weights because of ineffective conventional tendonitis remedies.

When you lift weights and do any exercise that involves your arms, the forearm and triceps muscles contract and becomes tighter. Tight and restricted forearm and triceps muscles pull and put tension on the elbow tendons. As a result, the elbow tendons become inflamed and cause pain during exercise or from lifting weights.
Yes, you can get tennis elbow from lifting weights. The tendon on the outside of the elbow gets overstressed through repetitive weight lifting exercises and movements. As a result, it leads to inflammatory pain in the tendon (tennis elbow) when lifting weights.
It depends on the severity of the elbow injury and pain. If the elbow injury creates "low to mild" pain, most people can use elbow joint support sleeves, elbow wraps or other short-term pain relief remedies to reduce pain temporarily. If the elbow injury is severe and creates sharp pain in elbow tendon and elbow joints, it's best to treat the elbow injury before resuming working out.
You can do several things to get rid of or prevent elbow pain from lifting: (1) If you feel a burning pain in your elbow after lifting, apply an ice pack to the elbow joint as soon as possible after working out. (2) You can use short-term pain relief remedies like joint supplements, elbow braces, elbow straps, elbow sleeves, and anti-inflammatory topical oils and creams. These remedies treat the symptoms of pain. They do not fix the source of the pain. (3) You can try solutions - such as the TitaniumPhysique program - that fix the root cause of the pain, for long term relief.
To treat tendonitis in the elbow, you need to (1) reduce chronic inflammation in the body, (2) replenish muscle magnesium levels, and (3) release restricted forearm and triceps muscles. These three steps can help you treat and fix tendonitis in the elbow - for good!
Yes, elbow tendonitis can go away if treated early and if the ROOT causes of the tendonitis are treated. Short-term remedies can help if the elbow tendonitis is acute (condition is less than three months old). If the elbow tendonitis is chronic (condition is more than three months old), it usually requires fixing the root cause of the elbow tendonitis to get rid of the pain.
Tennis elbow left untreated become degenerative and can lead to irreversible deterioration of the elbow joint. When left untreated, the surrounding forearm and triceps muscles become restricted and less flexible with decreased mobility, leading to more pain. Degenerative elbow tendonitis can also lead to chronic diseases such as arthritis.
