Was it a complete tear? You should probably wait longer than 3 weeks before starting up any kind of power lifting. If it wasn't a complete tear then it hasn't completely healed and if you go out and jerk a bunch of weight you could tear it completely.

The overhead motions associated with throwing, tennis and volleyball put a tremendous stress on the elbow joint and ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).
