Muscle Ups for me = tennis elbow?

Every time I do approximately 3-5 muscle ups I get a pain similar to that of tennis elbow. I have tried stretching and icing it but I still can't stop the pain from occuring past the 5 MU benchmark.
Any suggestions ladies and gentlemen?

Stop doing them until your connective tissue is stronger.

Do the subs for muscle ups instead.... IF they don't hurt. I'd suggest working up to +25% bw pullups and dips.
