Tendonitis?

Hi, everybody. Haven't really posted before here except on the main page for my results.

Anyways, i've been getting an acute pain in the outside of my right elbow whenever I put a load on it. Especially in a dip type motion.

I'm taking a week off to let it get better, what i'm really wondering is if this sounds like tendonitis. I've never been quite sure what that is.

Re: Tendonitis?

Possibly lateral epicondylitis....

what other exercises hurt it?

Rest, massage, ice fter an light exercise, avoid things that hurt it... general prescription for tendonitis healing..

Re: Tendonitis?

Thanks

I noticed that the pain was the most pronounced if I stressed it in a curl type motion. Not that I do those of course. I think it might be related to the big increase in my volume of pull ups. This last cindy was the first time I was able to go through the whole 20min without my arms dieing on me and switching the assisted pullups. Though an actual pull-up doesn't seem to agitate it at all, until later.

Guess no matter what the prescription is probably the same.
