maybe. your best bet is to find a PT who knows their stuff (not just Kelly starrett (sp)) and have your issue looked at. tendon injuries take a fucking long as shit time to heal and in most cases cutting intensity on whatever it is that's causing it is part of the treatment.

what I'd do is cut the stuff that makes it worse immediately, let the area rest, maybe ice it some if it hurts like shit, then start rehabbing and possibly stretching when it's relatively pain free. Then a gradual return into normal work.

tendons can also get fucked if there's excessive tightness or some weirdness going on around the area, so soft tissue work there can also help. fixing everything in your programming and technique probably goes without saying.

Haven't been around here a while, got laid off last week. Bah, just hoping it doesn't affect my b-school apps. Still waiting on this PE firm to get back to me, if they want to bring me on right away this layoff will have turned out awesome for me, but if not I'm fucked haha

I can lift during the day now, too, so the gym won't be crowded. Hyped as fuck on that. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Laid off is a bad feel, that sucks.

It's like a 30 person company, they fired 4 people and only two of us were laid off, so that's better feel, and I have enough money saved up so I'll survive. If I can find a job in the next month I won't have a gap in my employment; if these PE guys get back to me and offer me a job or internship I'll even be in my new field, so who knows. The PE guy sounded happy that I called him and let him know that I got laid off, as if it was a good development for his consideration. Might be a good reason for them to bring me on.

So this could all turn out amazing, or terrible.

I would be so incredibly fucked if I lost my job right now... That sucks, but awesome that you have a plan to move past it.

Cut is still moving on target. Should achieve thinspiration mode within next 6-8 weeks.

I get the same issue. I've found that widening the grip and relaxing my hands a bit help.

Elbow and shoulder pain from the low-bar squat is a typical sign of missing range in the thoracic spine and/ or internal rotation of the shoulders.

Low bar squat requires far more posterior chain in the squat, utilizing stretch reflex from the hamstrings.

Most novice lifters and general athletes will benefit most from a low bar squat. High bar is fantastic for olympic lifters. Most athletes are weak in the posterior chain anyways. But high bar will hit the quads more as well. Doesn't hurt to do both.
