Joint and Tendon pain from BJJ

Hey,

Im experiencing alot of joint and tendon pain in my arms at the moment from BJJ. More specifically in the elbow, upper forearm/lower bicep area.

I just wanted to know if anyone else experienced this when they started out? and how they overcame this?

Im assuming its from BJJ as thats where I do most pulling movements with my arms and of course getting armbarred doesn't help.

Also my calves are feeling like I did an hours skipping after BJJ sometimes... i dont understand why or how?!?!

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Peace and Arm Bars

It's probably because of the arm bars. Try tapping sooner maybe. I do Muay Thai and bjj and I am always more sore all over from bjj. Muay Thai I get a few scrapes on my arms from shin guard velcro, but bjj the next day my back hurts a lot and my knees seem to always hurt. I just pain through it and feel it's just part of the game. Sometimes I get finger print bruises on my legs and arms. It's the sacrifice you have to pay.

You may have a tear of some sort in your bicep insertion. I'm no doctor,but that is what it sounds like. A real cheap and effective way to treat it (aswell as your other aches and pains) in an ice massage. Fill a paper cup up with water and freeze it. Get it out after your workouts and massage it on the sore spots. As the ice melts peel away the cup so that more ice is exposed. I know this isn't exactly what wouy asked for, but the ice massage is something that is cheap and helps me out. Good luck with your future training!

if nothings torn then i would say ice and stretching. You should see a doctor or a trainer to see what they think though cause if something torn you may need physical therapy. I also agree with possibility of tapping earlier. Also talk to to your training partner and let him know so he wont wrench on it to hard. I have a shoulder i had surgery on and everyone i train with knows so we try to look out for it. Not to say we dont put any pressure on it we just try to remember its there.

I had the same problem when I first started Jiu Jitsu, It will get better after a while. Try icing down after class and after tourneys.

Thanks for the tips. I think ill try icing down. Its not so bad at the moment, as ive ben resting up after a hardcore month of punishment.

Boxing really aggrivates it. Throwing hooks just kills.

Its frustrating as I missed my first amatuer MMA comp over the weekend because I felt my arms were no good. (which they wernt)

Thanks again

i definately felt the pain from grappling. Most times, after practice, my arms would be throbbing with pain. I started taking Bio-Flex to help out a little.
