Spokeonawheel wrote posted a thread recently that I identify with but I didn't want to hijack his thread. I seem to have similar but different issues arising. I've noticed that tendonitis seems to be associated with pulling movements but I'm getting elbow pain from pushing movements. I had to throw out a bunch of compound lifts recently do to a lower back reinjury and have been focusing on chest for the last 3 months. I noticed the elbow pain while doing flat bench D-bell presses and swapped to flat b-bell presses and noticed immediate relief...which seems odd. I also discovered that most tricep exercises seem to cause pain as well i.e. skullcrushers. Recently posted a thread to evaluate my current training program for upper body hypertrophy and got some good feedback...my volume is way too high! Going to take some time out of the gym and try to let my elbows heal up a bit. Anyone else get elbow pain from d-bell push exercises, what's this all about? Tendonitis is usually a pull routine associated condition right? Any ideas on what's going on and how to correct it?
