3 Exercises to Skip If You Have Tennis Elbow
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
#1 – Straight Bar Bicep Curl
Straight Bar Bicep Curl
You will utilize the barbell to do curls. This is one exercise that you should leave out because from curling up, the force in the bar wants to take you into extension bending the wrist back and you need to fight back to keep the wrist in neutral. You need to create a flexion force, curling force that puts more stress on that inside part of the elbow, medial elbow or golfer’s elbow.
#2 – Underhanded Barbell Row
Underhanded Barbell Row
You are rowing up and then coming back. When rowing, the weight puts you into extension. You need to create a flexion force in order to complete the movement or prevent the weight from moving your wrist into extension that puts a lot of stress in your forearm and in the medial part of the elbow.
#3 – Chest Pec Fly Machine
Chest Pec Fly Machine
The third one is more of a machine that is usually found in weight lifting gym, bodybuilding gym, and rec centers called the Chest Pec Fly Machine. It is a machine that you sit in, grabbing the handles with arms straight, gripping handles, bringing out front and then coming back. The handles are trying to push you into extension and you are fighting the tension to keep the wrist in neutral. You created a flexion force that puts stress on the forearm and elbow.
If you have medial elbow pain or golfer’s elbow pain, make sure to cut out those three exercises that causes more damage and pain to your elbows.
