Tricep Pain During Pullups

During a workout today I had to stop as I felt something pull or strain in my upper tricep. Wasn't overly painful but figured I would ask around if anyone knows what this is.

I can do pushups without any pain but if I assume a kneeling pushup position and then push my butt back and head to the floor with my arms straight (think downward dog) I can feel some tightness/pain in the upper tricep area.

Would probably be a good idea to get it checked out just to make sure it's a strain though

Re: Tricep Pain During Pullups

Based on the level of pain today it is probably nothing more than a strain. Just a tiny bit sore with no loss in mobility and based on your category the soreness if all in the soft tissue on the surface. Always a bit freaky when you feel a new part of the body do something you've never felt it do
