Terms You'll Need To Know

Drop Set: During weeks three and four of all phases, you will do a drop set as the last set of each exercise. To do this, take the last set to muscle failure, then immediately reduce the weight by 25-30%, and continue the set until failure again.

Warm-up Sets: Perform 1-2 warm-up sets of 12-15 reps on the first exercise for all body parts, except abs and calves. Warm-up sets lubricate the joints, send blood to the working muscle, and prepare your body for a heavier load. After your warm-up sets, dive directly into the working sets below!

I had that problem a few years back. It was tendinitis. Basically they told me that just because my muscles could lift the weight my tendons couldn't and that was why my elbows hurt so much. You might want to get it checked out to be safe.
