I get a lot, and I mean a lot, of pain in my left bicep when benching, and in fact the muscle goes into spasm and becomes totally weak before my chest even feals its been worked out.
Today I tried to bench 50kg and after two reps my left arm felt like it was going to collapse from my left bicep hurting like mad and the whole arm going weak.
I also get pain in that bicep when I do tricep pull downs and dips.
I think it's just too tight perhaps as I cannot think when I have ever injured that arm or shoulder.
I have notes from six years ago (2006) from my ex-trainer that refer to the same problem when benching and doing press ups and his recommendations that I stick to flies.
Anyone got any advice?
