I was jabbing the heavybag earlier and now my left elbow stings whenever I extend it.

I was doing nothing but jabs, I did exactly 140 jabs with my right hand nonstop and it was alright. I rested for a few mins. and started with my left, at 70 my left elbow started to sting whenever I stuck it out. I finished the extra 70 I had left despite my elbow hurting.

What is it?

You are snapping your punches too hard. You probably extended your elbow too much. Move closer to the bag when you punch.

Just something with your nerve, should be ok in a day or so, if it persists, go see a doc, but I doubt it. Happened a million times to me.

Yeah sounds like an extension problem... Stretching your jab too much...

dont go for any machoism crap. if it hurts, stop doing it immediatly and give it a rest.

Pain in your muscles, and to a small extent, bones (the length of them) is natural. Joint pain however (not to be confused with muscle pain) is no joke, and is a good indication you're doing something wrong, or perhaps way to much. I'd venture a guess here that the problem is doing something wrong. Like others said, probably over extension. Has your trainer looked at your form?

Peace,

its happened to me while shadow boxing (i thorugh the jab like i mean it!) rest it and put some kind of wrap around it to keep it warm especcially while you sleep. my pian subsided in a couple of days

Yeah, I was snapping my jabs. I was punching as fast as I could while pulling my arm back as fast as I could from kind of far away. Just practicing my jab, they said I have a pretty good form. I was extending my arm out all the way when I jabbed though.
