Forum: For Personal Trainers

Compare notes with other trainers and improve your client's results!

This is not the "ask a trainer" forum where everyone gets a free program or something

apparently that needs to pointed out. if you're here looking for a program, please state your budget. Maybe someone will take you on.

Tennis Elbow/Forearm Strain

I feel a tiny bit of pain when I flex my left forearm and when I twist it. I'm pretty sure its from doing pullups (Palms facing away). And advice on how I should take care of it? Do I have to rest it and if so for how long? Or is this something to just work through?
