    wierd pain above elbow.

    I got into a deceptively good armbar recently and due to cockiness or whatever, I tapped a bit too late. It's a week later and I'm still getting a strange pain above my elbow. I figure this about the time I should start doing exercises to improve range of motion and strength but I don't know which muscle I injured.
    I always figured that armbars attacked the bicep... Has this happened to anyone else?

    Arm bars don't attack muscles, they attack ligaments, tendons and bones. Did you hear any popping sounds when you got arm-barred? Is there swelling? Is there a lack of strength? Is you range of motion effected? If it's still painful, you need to consult a doctor. Make an appointment and keep icing it.

    Your grappling instructor should tell you that the elbow is the primary target of an armbar. What kind of grappling school are you going to? Not that a bicep tear could not happen, but the elbow joint would go first. Locks always attack joints and ligaments first. Muscle tears can occur, but only as a result of the former.

    Elbow pain? Yep, for many reasons. Search for elbow on the PT forums:

    Use the search function. Also, read the sticky thread if you have not done already.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
