Had a minor tweak in my elbow off and on for the past couple months. Some days it hurts worse than others. Anyways, when I do triceps, for those days where it hurts like a motherfucker I have to do my normal workout backwards.
I’ll do light weight kickbacks, 1 arm cable pushdowns or anything that puts the minimal amount of strain on my elbow. Then, as my blood pressure goes up the pain starts to go away and I’ll do the heavier stuff like skull crushers etc. Is this a good way to handle an irritated elbow?
I mean it’s not like its every single workout where it’s bothering me to where I can’t manage to workout. I’m taking some joint support, icing it as much as my lazy ass gets around to it, and putting icy hot on it before training to get the blood flowing.
Don’t wanna have this injury build to something more where I can’t workout. BTW, the pain is when i lockout my elbow (flexing), and on the negative part of the rep on most tricep exercises.
