A couple years ago, I got Golfers Elbow (A.K.A. medial epicondylitis) in both forearms after having taken a few years off from heavy lifting and then getting back to it with new found inspiration.
The two main offending exercises for me were weighted pull-ups and heavy deadlifts. But there’s a number of activities that can cause this injury, I’ve even heard golf can do it.
(Check out my ultimate resource for golfer’s and tennis elbow, The Elbow Tendonitis Toolkit.)
I tried stretching but that only felt better for a minute or two. Massage and/or acupuncture both helped it feel better longer but as soon as I began doing pull-ups or lifting something heavy, it hurt all over again.
Then a client of mine, who was also a physical therapist, introduced me to the Reverse Tyler Twist with the Flexbar, and that changed everything. The pain went away and never came back!
