This video, by Dr. Vizniak, of ProHealthSys, discusses the disparities between muscular and tendinous growth rates, Tendinopathies and other tendon injuries – and the long-term effects of sport-specific strength training programs.
Among CrossFit athletes, Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow seem to be an all-too-common affliction (as well as other injuries) — Is there something inherently wrong with the CrossFit style of exercising that predisposes one to a much higher risk of injury? Here are 3 ways that it seems to!
Rotator Cuff / shoulder weakness and injuries often play a large role in causing Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow. Discover the true, essential function of this often misunderstood muscle group, learn why you should consider Rotator Cuff exercises – Especially if you’re an elbow tendon injury sufferer – And learn which exercise you may want to avoid doing the way some “experts” recommend!
For those of you who lift weights, Jeff is a good trainer to listen to. In this video he describes a type of wrist pain that’s common to weight lifters involving the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex, which includes cartilage and ligaments that are sometimes strained and torn.
Which upper-body strength-training exercises should you avoid, stop or modify when you have a Golfer’s or Tennis Elbow injury? – Should you use dumbbells or barbells? What about muscle isolation? Is it better to do more ‘general’ exercises or be more ‘targeted’ and specific?
