Gary explains how he debated to PTs, etc...and also about some studies that were done lately and confirm his beliefs.
It is a tendon that is inflamed not the muscle. Tendonitis does not heal itself, the inflammation does not heal it. I took a couple weeks completely off and there was no improvement, started doing light rep work and icing and it has made a world of difference.

Again, I will stick with the general consensus of the scientific community and not some guru.

Re: daily stretches

You know, I've heard this a lot, and from very knowledgeable, experienced coaches. Icing is good for nerve problems, but tendons and ligaments need INCREASED blood flow to heal, so shouldn't be iced.

Actually, it was Dr. Gabe Mirkin who first recommended the RICE protocol in 1978 (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). Now he says he was wrong about the ice part. The scientific data shows that ice actually delays healing. But don't take my word for it, here is the Dr. himself talking about it on his own website:

Re: daily stretches

From the way I understand it ice does restrict blood flow while it is applied but when the site warms up blood flow is increased in order to warm the area.

Re: daily stretches

1) Dead hangs. Good for shoulders and spine. Play with grips or pikey/archy swings or side to side swings (if you have the room or are on rings).

2) Asian squat. I also like to cossack squat a lot to warmup hips.

3) That sun salute in yoga. Cobra position-Dog positions. Or judo pushups.

4) Lying leg wipers/twists.

Re: daily stretches

If icing is wrong, I don't want to be right.
