Quoted from Djshakes:
Interested how you've overcome tennis elbow. I have been fighting for eight months. I have been able to work out but not as of last three weeks. I'm still in shape but this sucks. I rest on the machine when I play, arms locked. Is that the issue? I'll dump these things if it means not getting better.
Yep, riding a bike with locked elbows and resting on the machine with locked elbows not good. It’s also splaying your palms outwards not good. All that weight and vibration (not the sort our friend Gilligan is talking about) stresses the tendons out. That’s why is stopped resting on the machine. Carrying heavy weights at the end of your arms like heavy shopping bags not good.
I was using resistance bands, but I actually found swimming and stretching arms out and then self hugging (settle everyone!) and stretching out again with arms submerged and straight really helps. Also the suspension trainer thing that you use to do rows and push ups is great. Anything low impact can strengthen your arms is the key.
And also if you know something like pinball or fortnight is going to cause aggravation, do it in moderation but then use exercise.
I still have tennis elbow, but much better. Just a slight twinge after a big binge!!
