Ready for more volume! Coming next week…

I think I have the mechanism of my elbow pain nailed down: forceful bicep extension. I can feel pain in either bicep when doing so.
This would explain the pain from deadlift as I was attempting to do that to keep from flexing my elbow.

Not a great performance today. Probably the drop in volume last week due to the elbow.
Wore new SBD elbow sleeves during this. Seemed to help.
Need to get that amazing momentum back.

Stopping here cuz elbow is tender

Deadlifts thankfully did not hurt my elbows. My thumbs on the otherhand… but that’s to be expected

#Deadlift w/ straps

335 x 3 @6
355 x 3 @7

So no longer contributing to elbow pain with deadlifts. Now let’s see if they heal up.
