progressive overload, excess computer usage and overuse injuries

Post by Buckyx on Wed Jun 24, 2015 1:40 pm

probably a final lesson... I kept my progress under control to not get hurt and I added just 1kg/week but then suddenly one evening after workout when I increased weight by 1 kg on everything(every rep felt so easy even with this) I started feeling elbow pain, painful on extension or flexion, next day it was only discomfort and second day I did light training without pain
then I took like 5 days rest and decided to do lightest band curls, extensions, wall push ups etc and it irritated the elbow

I noticed during using my laptop especially holding mouse causes some tension there as my height of seat was too low etc and I use computer too much every day, this could develop some inflammation and its probably a tennis elbow

do you think this could have such negative impact on my elbow? I doubt it was a result of just training and my nutrition was on point too. not sure if oatmeal, occasional junk food and cottage cheese could keep inflammation in my body tho

never had problems with elbows before, no pain there during workout(only in my left one that is not injured during triceps extensions)
only time I felt tension around elbows was my warm up when doing large arm circles

Yes, it could.

Over the long term, improper posture and position while using your computer can lead to problems, and those problems often show up in doing other things (chinups in my case).  And yes, I had tennis elbow (or golfer's, I forget which is which). Had to lay off the exercises and do rehab.

So stick to squats for a while, see a doctor and a physiotherapist, and let your body heal. Then you'll get back to it.

7 or 8 years ago I developed serious neck/shoulder pain from my posture while typing. It was way worse than any injury I've had from lifting, and it took a while to get rid of. So yeah, make sure you set your workspace so that you're comfortable during those long hours at the computer.

Same thing happened to me. I was working in a factory, and then Christmas break rolled around and I had a week off work. Spent that week playing a lot of computer games, sitting at the computer longer than I normally would have, and my neck and back just could not handle it.

Now I make it a point to get up regularly and stretch when I need to when using my computer at home, or working in the call center.
