The Gym Junkie's Elbow begins



Let’s do a little series entitled “Gym Junkie’s Elbow” and see what we can all learn. I’ll also get small opinion articles from our other Educators to help us learn, and send you little videos on what you can do to help clients along towards improved function and less pain.

To fill you in, this idea began when a great trainer friend wrote in with this request 3 weeks ago:

      Hi Ulrik,
I hope you are doing well, I was thinking last night about topics that you may be interested in. By far the most common issue I see day to day is elbow pain from squats and bench press.
Regards Shaun 


It is very possible, of course , that Shaun works with a very specific type of fit population, but nonetheless, I’m curious: 

Have you experienced a lot of this (or have it yourself?). 

Could you think of three (3) clients who have elbow pain that makes working out difficult? Write me a quick “Yes” or “No”...

And… a massive thank you! - to those who wrote in with your Grumpy Knee Rehab stories; here are a couple of great mini case studies of real time trainers who worked hard to overcome their Grumpy Knees:

      Howdy Ulrik! Helen here.

Was on a 7/10 initial grumpy knee pain- wear & tear, aged 51, left handed, extreme hyper mobility, particularly experiencing lateral right side knee pain.

Now down to .5/10 or 0/10! Just left with crunchy knees in squats.
How I rehabbed it? Focused on:
1) Quad build up
2) Myofascial release 
3) Reducing orthotic prescription gradually & wearing them less (!)
4) Glute Medius build up work & single calf raises
 Yee ha!
Thank you..


And from Patrick:

      I did have on / off some twinges in the knees -especially the right as I got into Powerlifting to fix my hip/back issues. So, I isolated VMO in long sit and slight external rotation to activate said muscle gradually flexing the knee. Progressing to B/L weight bearing to S/L weight bearing, increasing flexion gradually, to functional movements eg stepping up and down a staircase, to walking/bounding and finally running to increase strength and endurance in the functional muscle unit. Since then,  I have had no problems (touch wood).


So as we leave Grumpy Knees altogether, I am working hard to finish off, and sending you soon around Christmas a serious bit of reading: an eBook entitled..you guessed it…"Gym Junkie’s Elbow". I’m going to throw you in the deep end with my thoughts on this fascinating topic ;)

Next week: comparisons between the Knee and the Elbow.

So much more than “Tennis Elbow” to learn about!

All the best and let me know back quickly if this topic is interesting to you?

Ulrik
