i recommend rest for the part ice application and avoid lifting weights for a week for tendinitis,
since you are weight lifter by occupation, wrong position or improper handling or insufficient warm up might cause tendon to get inflamed.
once tendinitis develops it is highly recommended to give rest to the part.

warm up exercises are thought for prevention of such episodes.
