Number One Workout Mistake That is Wrecking Your Elbows
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
It is pretty common belief out there that when it comes to working out and workout programs, most of us focus way too much on pushing exercises and not enough rowing exercises. We need a 1:1 ratio of pushing to pulling or we have to do a 2:1 (2 exercises of pulling to 1 exercise of pushing). If you follow that belief especially if you make this mistake, you’re wrecking your elbows.
Now let me explain the mistake I did. I didn’t focus on HWFE which is super important when it comes to rolling or pulling movements to not wreck the elbows. Whenever you are doing any type of pulling or rolling movement, what you should do is have the hand in line with the wrist, the forearm, and the elbow.
When I was going through the rolling movement with an overhand grip and underhand grip, I didn’t focus on the hand, wrist, forearm and elbow. I was breaking that movement and was going into too much flexion. I was coming up, pulling and curling at the top. I am putting unnecessary stress on the elbows.
What I want to do is to make sure that while doing any type of pulling or rolling movement, I have the hand, wrist, forearm and elbows in good alignment. Focus on the movement that is happening in the shoulder blades, shoulder and back area.
Give that a go and try a couple of repetitions where you are over curling and see how your elbows feel. And then, do the right way focusing in your hand, wrist, forearm and elbows on a perfect nice straight line and see how your elbows feel. If you feel a little bit of elbow pain and if you don’t make any changes, you will end up getting full blown elbow pain.
