Elbow Pain

Recently I have started to experience a sharp pain in my elbows, it started with my left elbow usually after a workout but now experience it with both of them during workouts. I'm wondering if it is an overuse injury from presses and cleans?

Has anyone experienced pain in their elbows during workouts? I am going to try these climbers stretches and see if it helps. http://www.nicros.com/training/artic...limbers-elbow/

Re: Elbow Pain

Where is the pain and what actions or movements cause it to hurt?

Does it hurt to shake someones hand?

Re: Elbow Pain

If it's bilateral without any trauma; I'd look at grip, and other upper back musculature(mid/lower traps, serratous, etc).

It's unlikely that you are suffering from bilateral elbow pain and the problem not coming from somewhere more centrally located.

I've noticed it most when I've been doing cleans.

Haven't shook any hands recently, but if it doesn't hurt if I mimic the motion

On the pull of the clean, or lowering the weight?

I feel it more in the pull, but most noticeably when I am done with the movement. Post workout I definitely feel pain in both elbows more than during a workout. When I hold them stationary it isn't bad but when I move either one I feel the pain.

I found this video with KStarr, I've never used voodoo floss but would consider it if it would help me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dgbCDtqdlI
