This is where the bicep...

reakfast today was 250g Oats in water, microwaved for 2 ½ minutes, and 40g vanilla protein blend mixed in 10g L-glutamine, 1 multivitamin and b-complex tablet I also had a coffee with soya milk So a forced rest day today, so annoying having picked up 2 injuries! One on my right elbow where the bicep inserts into, so anything I lift and curl wide hurts it. It's also starting to hurt when fully stretched out too. And then my neck/ upper traps which feels all knotted, and this seems to hurt in most lifting movements! I'm hoping a rest will...
