My Arms are on FIRE!

So recently I started back at the gym and I got a lifting program. Itís been too days since I last lifted and my arms are so sore, I can barely straighten them out. The pain comes from the crack in the arm up and around. I've tried Epson salt baths, resting my arms up high for elevation, and none of them really work. Would be cool if I could get some advice on whatís best to decrease the soreness.

remember my first arm workout aboot 5 years ago, not that i didn't do it before but it was a first time after a long break. and i should have taken it easy BUT... defenitly overdid it - i not only fuked up the muscle itself but also overstretched ligaments/tendons and spent at least a 1.5 week looking like a cripple with my arms bend all the time LOL

you just overdid it man...you gotta ease back into it...that's the same as me i just started a new hypertrophy program after a long break and all my muscles are aching...best thing you can do is protein right after and lots of rest and stretching..and definately don't work out if there is still lots of stiffness..the muscle fibres haven't healed yet

I think it's clear you've ruined your arms. They will never work again. Sorry to break it to you. Better start learning how to masturbate with your feet.

vitamin C and fish oil will be helpful, but you'll still have to take a few days off and then have a few easy days lifting before you go back full tilt, imo.

So its been a wekk, and its pretty cool cuz I can already feel and I that I've gotten stronger. The amount of weight I can lift has gone up, my conditioning has gone up, and best of all is that even though at the time it may feel terrible I;ve been getting a sense of wellness from all the hard work.

fish oil all of a sudden helps relieve muscular tension? it's always been used for cardio I thought...
