    Tennis Elbow Fixed...

    Figured I'd post some advice.

    At age 50, I finally figured out how to get rid of tennis elbow in my right arm, from benching.

    Lot's of barbell curls with the EZ bar. Maybe it works with the straight bar too, I dunno, but EZ bar is easier to grab. I do one set of curls for every bench and keep reps high in the 15 rep range. My tennis elbow simply went away.

    I always did curls, but not so many high reps and not so many sets. I now add in several light weight sets, in addition to 3-4 working sets. This fixed the issue.

    EZ curls did not "fix" your tennis elbow.

    Vodoo flossing would take far less time and can help with golfers and tennis elbow.

    Maybe but doing the curls also has other benefits like bigger biceps. Not my normal work out, but when I read some comments about EZ bar curls helping tennis elbow, I started doing this: I start with the 30 pound bar, do 15 reps, then cycle around and do 40 pounds for 15 reps, then repeat with 50, 60, 70, 80 and then do 3 reps of 15 with 90, and take the last set a few past failure (meaning cheats). I do them all standing as I think that's better for practical strength. Doing so many early reps slows your progress, but I'll periodize it, meaning that I'll move back to sets at higher reps without so many lower level sets, in another month once I'm confident in my elbow.

    I do this twice a week.

    So far my elbow feels healthier than ever. I don't experience any pain or feeling of weakness in it. Which is a huge relief because I'd have had tennis elbow issues for decades.
