Yoga is great for increasing flexibility while strengthening joints. Try a class, or use these stretches at home.
2. FULL BODY > MUSCLE ISOLATION
Working the elbow joint in isolation (think bicep curls or tricep kickbacks) can cause that pain to flare up. Try full body exercises (push-ups, pull-ups and bodyweight rows) to work the same areas with extra stabalizer muscles for less pain.
Not only does massage improve circulation and boost relaxation, it can also help relieve pain, promote flexibility, and reduce muscle soreness!
4. DUMBBELLS FOR THE WIN
Try swapping the barbell for dumbbells when doing a bench press, row, or overhead press. This allows your joints to move in a more natural, functional, direction, and could help prevent elbow pain.
