Tire flip forearm soreness

Ok, I've been doing CrossFit for well over a year and don't mind the soreness that comes from work outs. I usually can work through them the next day with no problems. Three days ago I did an additional WOD to compete in our in house challenge and my forearms have not stopped aching. It was my first time doing tire flips and I flipped the tire three times around the building which took about 20 minutes. My WOD's have suffered since then (except for running) and it aches just to open the fridge.. any feedback would be great?

Is this normal when doing a new movement or workout? When will it go away? Should I ice? heat? again any help?

Re: Tire flip forearm soreness

Yes, it's normal if you've never done anything grip intensive.

Ice would've been fine.. but it's been three days so heat is probably better.

Massage and stretch them too.

What part of the forearm? Before maybe over-reaching when it comes to grip intensive work, do a search around here for Golfer's Elbow. You do NOT want to get a case of that.

It's highly unlikely to give yourself tendonitis in one workout although it may be the case with the OP if he's been overworking..

Re: Tire flip forearm soreness

True, but I assume the same pattern will continue.

FWIW, I think I got a case from 5-6 over-reaching workouts over the course of about a month.

The soreness is spread out through the lower arm... nothing near the elbow. Also it feels a lot better today(80-90%)... I can grip with little or no aching.

Thanks for your feedback!!
