Tendinitis Blues

16 June 2016

SlingShot bench press 350 lbs. x 6, 335 lbs. x 6, 330 lbs. x 6

Used the Original SS this time. All sets went well.

Close-grip bench - did 3 light sets trying to experiment with different grips and only lowering the bar to 3-4 inches above chest.

Paul Carter's T-Nation article talks about not going all the way down to keep the tension on the triceps. As usual, his advice is spot on because even 225 felt much harder this way. Certainly something I should explore more, as it lets me use light weight while still working the crap out of the arms.

Seated cable row 4s x 8

Incline bench press 5x5

Hammer curls 4 sets x 8-10

I've been dealing with a nasty case of tendinitis in my right elbow for around 6 weeks now. It might have flared up due to too much biceps work. Hammer curls work fine, so I'll just do these for a few weeks to give the elbow a break.

Tricep extensions (machine) 3s x AMAP

Cable flyes 2s x 8-10

Elbow tendonitis sucks! Hope you heal up soon.

Thanks! I bought a Theraband Flexbar and have been using it for the past few weeks. The results look promising. Last time my elbow tendinitis got this bad, it took 6 months to go away, I'm hoping it won't take that long this time round.
