Elbo pit pain?

My buddy whom I CF with has developed a constant pain in the oti of his elbo and Around the inner forearm and lower tricep around the elbo. I think it could be from improper form durring kipping pullups. However we were going over when it hurt the most and he said it was when he worked. He is a brick mason and has to lay bricks with an outstretched arm it seems this constant stress perhaps coupled with not warming up properly and letting his form be sloppy has brought about some sort of strain or inflamation. I told him I would post about it and see if anyone has had similar experience or any suggestions as to treatment possabilities.

Re: Elbo pit pain?

Laying brick means he is using a lot of his forearm and elbow musculature during the day.

Doing a kipping pullup has a lot more force, especially shearing force on the joints than dead hang pullup. That is why you have to a bit careful considering you are not just moving BW doing a kipping PU.

If you do 10 PU with a BW of 150 pounds, that's 1500 pounds moved. I've seen some threads on how much poundage you should move either from Polinquin or Coach Sommer so it's something to definitely think about.
