    Reposted from another forum... follow this advice and your elbows will improve.



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Here is how to take care of your elbows.

    1. Use equiblock dt or stop pain 30 minutes BEFORE training.

    2. Use neoprene sleeves.

    3. Flush the area with blood as a warm-up(ex. pushdownsx100)

    4. Stay away from ACCESSORY movements that severely iritate it (You'll just have to suck it up on ME)

    5. Ice for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off ASAP after workout. Ice is a miracle drug!! Nobody wants to take the time or effort to use it but it actually HEALS the problem. This is the most important step of all. Just put ice in a ziplock baggie and put it on the area that hurts. Ya the ice is gonna be cold and it does hurt for 5 or so minutes but then it will feel good. I also use these velcro ice packs from http://www.sporties.net/Detail.bok?no=16

    6. Take 800mg of ibuprofin 3x per day until your problem clears up.

    7. Find a good joint support formula such as Joint Complex by Gearman Nutrition at http://www.gearmannutrition.com/newsite/index.cfm?page=home.cfm or Syn-Flex and take it religously. It takes a long time to feel the results of this but you will eventually feel them.

    8. Supplement your diet with fish oil capsules and Vitamin C these are both natural anti-inflammatories.

    9. You must do ALL of these to help, you can't just pick one or two you must do them ALL.

    10. You can also do expand your hand bands, wrist curls and hammer curls, all of these make my elbows feel better.

    11. For severe issues(I got this tip from Will Smith and it works) Get a big bowl and fill it with ice, water and 2 tablespoons of salt, stick your elbow directly in it and keep it in there for 10 minutes. Dry it off and wrap it with a heating pad for 10 minutes, repeat twice.

    12. If you have done all of the above and are still having problems then it's time to take a few days off.

    Good Luck and I hope this will help everyone, BDR

    Good read. I need this now. Overhead pressing has caused some major pain in my elbow the last few weeks. (Icing as I type)

    no it isnt... BDR is really good friends with Will Smith. They were born and raised in West Philadelphia. They spent most of their days on the playground.



    and I'm gonna stick this for a bit, then I'll archive it.

    ok. I thought this was one of those Fresh Prince bandwagon threads. "Here's how you heal your arm....My mom got scared..."

    Ice, heat, Ice, heat, Ice, heat....

    worked great on the old jack off joints. if someone would unlock bdr's thread I'd have posted it there instead of making a new thread.

    Yeah thanks to BDR's band warmup idea and lots of Blue Heat combined with ice and my hot tub, my elbows are feeling pretty good.

    Now I just need to restock on Super Cissus.

    Shoulder pain is a bit different. Basically all of the same stuff but add ultrasound, musclestem and acupunture.
