Forearm and elbow pain is common among people who participate inrepetitive activities that primarily use the FLEXOR muscles of the forearm. Weightlifters, rock climbers, bowlers, and tennis players (just to name a few) are far more likely to developRepetitive Strain Injurythan most people. In fact, tendonitis and carpal tunnel are some of theMOST commoninjuries among these activities due to the strain caused by the repetitive movements under strenuous force!
Extensor exercises arerecommended by professionalsfor rehabilitation of these conditions but ideally you would do yourself aHUGEfavor and avoid injury in the first place. Or at least prevent an acute case from becoming chronic!
You may still be wondering,WHAT causes this nagging pain??? Conditions like Carpal Tunnel and Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) are the result of OVERUSE and also NEGLECT of the TWO primary muscle groups in your hands, forearm and wrist; specifically,overuse of your flexor muscles and underuse of your extensors.
TheFLEXORS in your arm are activated when you squeeze and theEXTENSORS activate when you open your hand. Lifting weights requires you to repeatedly engageONLYyour flexors, causing a musculature imbalance in our forearms which over time leads to strained muscles and tendons followed by pain in the surrounding joints. If you don’t take some time off at this point (often months) it can progress into a debilitating and chronic case of carpal tunnel or tendonitis.
THAT’S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO EXERCISE YOUR EXTENSORS!
