Glad to hear you're continuing to make improvements and that the eccentric chin-ups seem to be contributing! Interesting that even such a small volume seems to be making a difference! I continue to be symptom-free with my own uppy elbow, although I am still doing a mix of physical activities each we...

Great, I'm glad the "eccentric chin-ups" seem to be helping! I have also experienced a phase of "unpleasant awareness" of the affected area, as you describe. Currently I've had no uppy elbow symptoms at all for probably a few weeks. I'm still on an exercise regimen with SG as a relatively minor comp...

How do you use the theraband flexbar for massage? By rolling the forearm across it on a tabletop? I had only come across on-line demonstrations for therapeutic use of the "rubber tuncheon" in bending and/or twisting exercises, and not using it as a massage tool per se. Which reminds me: Many sources...

The uppy elbow thread

As promised, here's an update. A few months ago, I developed (self diagnosed) right medial epicondylitis, a.k.a. "golfer's elbow", a.k.a. "uppy elbow." :) I am not sure if shovelglove was the/a causative factor. After some on-line "research" and personal experimentation, there were my findings and c...

Thanks for the info, Reinhard. I should have qualified my previous post by saying that (a) I appear to have a rather mild case that gets sore but does not seriously restrict my activity and (b) I have no idea if it was brought on (in whole or in part) by shovelglove. I'll do some research/experiment...

Reinhard: How's the flexbar working for you? I think I may have shugged my way into a case of "uppy elbow" as well. :(

two new systems

I have a couple of new Everyday Systems I've been trying out. While rudimentary, they have been going well for me for a while now, so I thought I'd share them here in case others might find them helpful: 1. Problem: Sleep debt (chronic sleep deprivation) While I have seen various written estimates, ...

I'd also recommend a more conservative upgrade -- do 12# at the most, for now.
