I think I have developed tennis elbow from heavy deadlifting. My grip strength is much stronger now, but I have some pain near the outer elbow. The pain is not severe, but it is swollen and there is pain when move my elbow. This problem is probably from heavy griping during the deadlift. Anyone else who has this problem or knows someone with it? Any recommendations or exercises that may be helpful?
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

What about if when you extend your elbow it feels like it's sort of grinding? It only does this occasionally though. Like it'll happen once and then it'll be gone.
If you put on a tight wrap on your upper forearm it will help eliminate some of the tendon movement during the exercises that cause the pain you're experiencing.
Best way to cheat on deadlifts...
Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
