Re: exercising around elbow injury

I now have no symptoms with the few pushups I have attempted, so I am "cleared" to try pushing motions to the front and overhead (starting with low reps and weight, of course). The pullups are still not right. I can do a pullup, but I feel it towards to top of the rep. My standard has been that if I feel sensation in that spot, I don't do the exercise. I may have to relax that standard a tiny bit as I try to recover.

Regarding the eccentric exercises, I was surprised to find that the acupuncturist/therapist told me today to hold off on the eccentric exercises. I thought they were supposed to be for rehab, but perhaps I should be closer to 100% before trying them. Very confusing.
