Default Bone Bruise

I have some deep tenderness and semi-weakness around my right tricep that have been there for 2 weeks. It's not tender to the touch, but I can feel something odd when I mimic a press movement.

The area of my tricep close to the bone feels off. I am trying to figure out if I have a bone bruise and possibly some inflammation near it.

Anyone have a bone bruise before?

I have never had a bone bruise. That said, have you done anything to get a bone bruise? Your training doesn't read like it would cause a bone bruise in your arm. Rugby? Yes. Deadlifts and Squats? I don't think so.

It sounds more to me like you may have pulled and/or strained some tendons in your bicep and tricep.

It doesn't feel like a strain. It's a deep tenderness and slight weakness.

I don't know. Benching heavy + old age? I'm not certain...

Could be bursitis style inflammation?? Just guessing. Or bone issues, as in the joint, if the pain is in the joint area; otherwise I'd be inclined to agree with Nard about the possibility of it being tendon/ligament related.

It's not in the joint nor near connective tissue. It's right at the top of the horseshoe.

Not sure what bursitis is...must Google.

It could be some odd strain, but I've never had one feel tender like this.

You mentioned it started 2 weeks ago, or about two weeks ago; do you remember if there was any tweak occur then? Or two days prior to two weeks ago, etc? Any workout or daily chore you may be able to link it to?

If not, I'd be inclined to get it checked out, with bones, muscles and age, you just don't know what may be going on underneath.



When I had a bruised bone, I ended up with a huge lump on my shin which I'd whacked on a raised metal step on a ferry after falling flat on my face; I had the entire lower leg, back and front, covered in a bruise which lasted a long time but the lump sat there for a good 7 months or so...not something you'd easily miss, so I don't think you have a bruised bone.

No tweak. Just a lot of heavy pressing. 2 weeks ago my numbers dipped dramatically on bench, and I failed 3 times during that week on numbers I should easily hit.

Something is causing weakness. No sharp pain, and nothing that feels like a strain. Just tenderness. This is odd because I've never had an injury like it before.

From what I know of bone injuries I'd be inclined to agree with MC and 5kg. Probably more like tendonitis/inflammation. Perhaps it's been caused be more frequent Squatting.

I recall you mentioning you've had issues with your elbows originally caused by Squats (as have I), doing them three times a week will no doubt lead to exacerbating the issue. This is pretty common and only really shows itself when Benching. Something to consider.

I had elbow issues in the past, but there is little strain from the buffalo bar currently. I certainly can't rule out that something happened during a rep though...

Tonight is bench night and it will be interesting to see what happens. It feels weak and tender right now.

On a related/perhaps not related note I've been doing Behind the Neck Push Presses (BTNPP) recently and they are awesome for general upper body flexibility. It makes Squatting and Pressing much, much smoother.
