Kettlebell & Bicep
An avid kettlebell user, I recently overdid it and found myself in pain. Lifting a glass and turning a doorknob caused my left arm (anterior, just distal to the elbow crease) increasing pain. Thinking about the movements of the kettlebell clean and snatch, I realized...biceps tendon (flexion, supination). So, some Traumeel, some cross-fiber friction of the tendon (once it calms down a little), and I should be as good as new. In the meantime, I guess it's time to get on the treadmill, eh?
