Lot's of elbow pain going on with this challenge!
My elbow felt good on Friday, so started doing weighted pull ups. I worked up to 35KG, and it started to hurt again. So, I decided to do some bodyweight pull ups and tried the "ladders" mentioned before. Kept the rest at 30 seconds max, a lot was just 15, and got 6 "ladders" (1,2,3,4,5). These are actually quite enjoyable. You get loads of good explosive perfect reps. That was 90 reps in 15 mins I got just from the ladders. The 6th was a real struggle but all chest to bars with the reps. Think I would of failed on the 7th ladder, but never tried due to pain. My elbow was killing me by the end.
Best part is, I spied the massage women in my gym at reception afterwards. So I walked up holding my elbow and casually asked how she was... Trying to look as vulnerable as possible... She asked what was wrong with the elbow, then gave me about 15-20 mins of soft tissue work, and a few lectures. It felt amazing, got rid of the pain, and it's not hurt since
I've decided she must be some kind of angel. Really "sweet" women who clearly loves what she does.
