Elbow problem


About 6 months back I started the static plache progressions. I have progressed on to 3-4 seconds of tucked planche static position (I'll also post that in the other forum for criticism and improvement tips).

However, after I come down from the tucked planche position I experience pain around my elbow and forearm. The pain seems to be in the forearm bone (ulna I believe) close to the elbow in a straight line. There is no tenderness/pain to touch. Also, it doesn't happen all the time... it only happens when I try to improve my hold time on tucked planche. Surprisingly it happens when I come out of tucked planche position and not when I am in that position.

EDIT: Added the fact that I am right-handed and my left arm is weaker than my right. This pain only happens in my left elbow. It happens on the outside close to where the triceps are attached to my forearm bone. It lasts for about 15 minutes after I hold tucked planche for more than 4 seconds.

I hope it's nothing serious. Any suggestions/theories on what this could be?

Re: Elbow problem

Hurt on any other exercises?

Can you get a picture and point out where it hurts?

Sounds a lot like forearm splints.. but yeah need more info.
