Just make sure you strech well before exercise.

I have no inflamation, no pain, so ice wouldn't be needed.

See an orthopedic doctor and/or physical therapist if it bothers you, and it sounds like it does. How big is this "tendon"..are you sure it's a tendon? If it's small, a 2 or 3% inflamation may be unnoticeable to you but underneath, who knows. See a doctor!

It might be due to an imbalance in muscular development in your arms. You said it happens when you are half-way through a curling motion? Maybe one part of your triceps is not as strong as the other muscles in your arm and so it isn't anchored as well (not as much tension). Sometimes these things are just structural abnormalities that people have that cause things like that to happen. If it starts to bother you, see a doctor (physical therapist), but if you make sure all of your arm muscles are proportional in strength, you may be able to stop it from happening.
Hope this helps.

Good thoughts. I know that my left bi is much weaker than my right, but cathching up the more I focus on it. Really, really trying to keep good form there and tune into the left. It'll get there.

The tri? I just got back from doing chest, and the limiting factor on my left side seems to be my tri. It may be worth noting that I never do barbell chest work anymore, always dumbells. Barbells seem to only hit my shoulders.

Recently, with dumbells, I cannot seem to dial in the left pec quite right. Is it a strength thing? or am I so concentracted on trying to work aroung this "pop" that I'm not concentrating on contracting my left pec.

On benchwork it pops at 90 degrees. I can almost work around it, but my range is just less than 90, and I feel like I'm cheating.

Here's something else I've noticed. In curls, when the left fails, my shoulder immediatly comes up, and I go into a "scooping" sort of motion rather than a nice arc. As soon as I get to that point, I stop, and lower the weight on the next set if needed. I can still get the weight up, but it's with a really goofy angle that doesn't seem to hit anything real well.

I may try that elbow strap. Do you have one you can point me to online that works well? Are you just talking about the neoprene (sp?) brace like things?

Thanks for everyone's help.

I have experienced the same kind of thing, but I am experiencing a lot of pain with it. I've continued to lift heavy even though any type of chest press, tricep extension aggravates it. I take anti-inflammatory's and ice several times a day. Should I stop lifting or just work through it, and is there anything else I can do?

I have been getting pops in my elbow for months and it started to get painful after the first few months. I am getting my elbow scoped... my doctor says its a cartilage problem. I think you should see a specialist and get an MRI
