I've been lifting for about a year and a couple months now. I still consider myself a beginner, but I have gained 35 lbs. Making me 6'4" and weighing 180lbs. My goal is to hit about 200 or 220lbs and then cut. Either way I've currently hit a road bump in that my fore arms are failing me. More and more they hurt when doing all my exercises or just moving weight around. I've come to the conclusion that it must be tendinitis. I was wondering what I can do to let this heal while continuing to hit the gym. How can I prevent it in the future when it heals. Do I just have to go the leg only route? On another note here is my current workout system; back - seated row - 4x8 tri - tricep cable pulldown 4x8 back/bi - cable pulldown from above 4x8 shoulder - shoulder press w/dumbbells 4x8 bi - curls - 4x8 bench w/bar or db - 4x8 squat - 5x5 It's a full body workout that you guys will call shit, but it's what I do every other day. I want to switch to a 3 or 4 day split so I don't have to spend two hours in the gym every time I go. When doing the split I think that I will be able to target the muscles better knowing it's the only group I'm doing for the day so they better be torn to shit when I leave. I'd also like to add abs to it. I've read the stickies, but since I have tendinitis in my right arm I'm not sure how to go about solving it or avoiding lifting. Thanks F&N.
