First, welcome to ABC!

A few tips to remember:

1. Tendons don't have a good blood supply, so make sure you are adequately warmed up before lifting heavy

2. Muscles build strength faster than tendons, so be patient. There might be a weight that your muscles can handle but your tendons cannot, so be sure to keep the progressive overload at a slow pace.

3. Hold may have a place in your programming, check out #3 here:
