    Feels different from the tendonitis I had before... this time if my left arm is bent for awhile or resting on an armchair... I'll have difficulty straightening it out. Even abit painful as well...anyone else ever have this?

    Here is how to take care of your elbows.

    1. Use equiblock dt or stop pain 30 minutes BEFORE training.
    2. Use neoprene sleeves if it's elbows or knees.
    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 miricle 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 antiinflammatories.
    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, BigDamnRay

    I have this type of pain when I do skull crushers or stuff like curls with a straight bar.

    Not too much intensity or weight but more volume with less rest.

    This problem just flared up in the last few days. Just a few hours after doing straight legged leg lifts on dipping bars. Wondering if holding that position is the culprit exercise...

    could be since it's normally exercises that include elbow extension + wrist extension
