Tennis elbow update. Not sure the flexbar is having the desired effect. If the point is to exercise the forearm eccentrically, why not this: holding the affected arm in front of me, bent at the elbow and wrist bent back 90 degrees, I push on the back of my hand with the other hand, resisting as it goes through the range of motion until it is bent about 45 degrees forward. I can control very easily the amount of force, and it seems to fire the muscles in there. Yet to see if it fixes the problem, but it is way more low-tech than even the low-tech flexbar, and seems to hit the problem more directly. I have been doing a set of 5 reps, a couple of times a day, for several days now.
