Wearing Supports

Post by Rix on Sun May 19, 2013 4:57 pm

My elbows and knees hurt a fair bit after certain exercises - HeSPU and Pistols completely eff them up. cant even do isolation on arms to much coz that tends to irritate my elbows. The doctor said i have un even bands in them or some bollox like that.

So the question is, would wearing supports help? and I wanted to start wearing supports at work aswell, but would excessive wear of them make the joints weaker and reliant?

Pistols usually hurt my knees as well, but doing hindu squats usually gets rid of it and allows me to work on pistols again until I'll have to do hindus again.

Just strengthen your elbows with some high rep triceps extensions (either bodyweight or with free weights). It might get rid of your pain.

Also, a lot of these things go away after a while, for me at least, bodyweight triceps extensions used to hurt my elbows but simply continuing doing them made the pain go away. My elbows almost never trouble me anymore.
