    The advice on the negatives is dead on.

    Shit. I really need to up my game.




    Seriously, I read a medical joirnal about healing achilles tendonitis in this way and gave it a shot on the tricep tendon. It really works for anywhere you get it but it's harder to do eccentrics on some tendons.

    Negatives!

    Anything you can do to put that tendon under pressure and only do the eccentric (negative) portion of the exercise. Even if it's just slowly lowering your bodyweight over a counter or something. The thing that really cured it for me was using cables. Grab a bare cable with the bad arm as if you were planning to do single are tricep pressdowns. Use your good arm to force the weight down and then do the full negative very slowly with the hurt arm. Repeat as much as you can and move up in weight. Youll likely hear popping and crackling as the frayed tendon fibers realign correctly.

    Do not do any pushing whatsoever with it for a couple weeks. Just do negatives on it as often as you can.

    I found that lowering my weight onto a counter using just the hurt arm worked very well and you can do it all throughout the day. Hope I explained this somewhat well enough to get the idea.
    Roger that, thank you very much.

    I would get it from using the straight bar to often to squat, teammates also did.

    Speed bench was another issue for me.

    I cut out speed bench and started using more specialty bars and was good.

    Great to hear! I was kind of pissed when this worked so quickly for me. I hadnt even benched in 4+ months. Doctor had put me on some super powerful corticosteroid that did nothing but make me feel terrible.

    Pretty sure after a week of doing negatives throughout the day, I was pain free and lifting again. Wished I had discovered it sooner

    No bullshit, I did it one day, like three sets, the next day the pain was completely gone, its almost a miracle man. I cant tell you how bad this was. If I randomly hit my elblow anywhere from doing anything, it would bring me to my knees in pain.
