Keeping Your Elbows Healthy (Part 1)

A lot of grip work with barbells, rings, pull-up bars and especially rope climbs means we need to spend time helping our elbows recover.

Voodoo flossing is an excellent way to help. Have a team-mate wrap above and below the joint at as tight a pressure as you can tolerate. This restricts movement and bloodflow in the joint. From there, move your elbow as much as you can for up to 2 minutes. This is building your mobility. When you take the voodoo floss off, the blood forces out all the gunk in the joint. “Gunk” is the scientific term!

Banded pull downs and bicep curls provide a good supply of blood flow and nutrients to the joint, to speed up the regeneration.
