I know you had elbow issues that prevented you form your true potential on pressing. How did you overcome it?
I did my elbow from BJJ a while back (the exact point where the tendon inserts the elbow) and although it’s somewhat better, it never fully healed. Every time I do a press, I can feel a little pain/ discomfort. I feel although it’s ok when warmed up, it might give up anytime.
I use a floss band on my elbow often, wrist extensor bands from Iron mind. Avoid skull crushers, lot of fish oil, and icing when it feels inflamed. I have some missing cartilage in mine and a torn UCL, I just got used to it being a little sore sometimes. What have you all tried so far?
If it is a tendon or a ligament you are candidate for prolotherapy, it is a proliferative treatment to “irritate” the damaged area and force an inflammatory process with the intention of starting a natural healing process. Read a little bit about it and give it a try; it really worths it. Do not know if CT have ever used it or if some of his athletes have tried it
