I have read EC’s article on maintaining healthy elbows and wrist already. I am also taking plenty of fish oil.
A couple days ago while doing good mornings with the straight bar, my elbow started to act up. I waited a couple days then did some floor presses today with the fat bar. Low and behold, it started hurting again. This time, it was hurting in both elbows! My left elbow has been bothering me for quite sometime (never from pressing movements. Always from extensions and other single arm stuff).
It will heal up, then I will seem to aggravate it on something. To best describe the location of this pain, it would be if you had your arm stretched out in front of you with it’s palm up. Right between where the forearm meets the upper arm is the pain. Right there on the surface closest to your eyes.
Here are my questions.
I hear active release can help with elbow pain of this nature. How do I perform active release to make this injury feel better?
I hear squeezing a tennis ball helps? Is this true?
What else can I do besides icing and stretching?
Thank you for your help!
