I can feel my tendons moving in my arm...

Is that normal? It's normally after a couple sets and only happens if I'm doing a press/pushup. It almost feels like they're moving against each other and snagging the slightest amount.

Hard to understand exactly what you mean. I don't think I feel anything like this though.

When I bend my elbow during the press I can feel my tendons moving in my arm. I'm not really sure how else to say it, but it feels like they're moving past each other, almost like there isn't enough room and something needs to move out of the way for one to bend

Yes, your biceps tendon is probably inflamed. I'm not sure what you would be feeling moving over another tendon (which I don't think given anatomy it's possible) but interior ligaments/tendons don't "move" persay. You should be able to move it going over the bone back and forth, but it stays in the same spot. Regardless, I would I've the **** out of it and stop doing anything that involves going overhead or stretching it under pressure (ie-presses below 90 degrees)

It's a very naggy injury and can get really painful.

I'll throw some ice on it. Nothing ever hurts once I'm done or the following day, and it doesn't really hurt when it happens, just feels weird.

I Ice A LOT man. If I were you I would do it now and not let it get to that point. 15 on 15 off just whenever you're relaxing at home.

That's exactly what I'm doing now. I've noticed it happens more frequently when I'm doing push ups, could it be due to bad form or just shitty genes?

I don't see how that's possible and how that wouldn't be extremely painful.

Those aren't tendons.
