Easygym is pretty dece in my opinion for the price bracket - peak times are a little annoying though

Not sure if it's of interest to anybody, but posting in case…

We've started building pull up and dip bars (http://www.incitefitness.co.uk/pullupbarbuilds) for gardens, gyms, schools, etc.

I also sell bars, if you want to build your own set up, and freestanding/portable bars (http://www.incitefitness.co.uk/pullupbars).

If anybody wants a bar build - email me saying you're from here and I'll see if I knock off any travel costs.
If anybody wants a bar, to build their own, or portable dips - use "FUK10" for 10% off bars/portable bars.

Anyone clued up on elbow pain?

Think it came on around 6-7 months ago but could have been longer than that. I can train back and biceps fine, some shoulder exercises bring it on such as shoulder press and chest day is completely out of the question.

As soon as I bench, work triceps or DB press I get a sharp ripping sort of pain in my left elbow - I've taken months off at a time from the gym to see if it heals but as soon as I go back the pain immediately returns.

Worth seeing a physio? Would an elbow strap help?

Tendonitis, most likely in the bicep. I've had it numerous times both in the bicep & tricep. Warming up as emphatically as you can is the best pre-emptive measure.

Tendon damage is temperamental and takes a while to heal because of course you ain't getting blood flow like you do for muscle pulls.

6-7 months is a long time, upper end really for how long it should take to heal. I take you've been lifting heavy still?

You need to deload on the weight you're lifting and do high-rep low intensity upper body exercises, basically anything that's enough to get a pump in your arms to get bloodflow there. Tendonitis can take a while to heal - from memory, it took me about a month for it to completely go.

I got an injury too. Dunno what I did but done something to my left wrist. It's been painful for 3 weeks now, the wrist bone sticks out more than the right one. Went to hospital to see if it was broken, it isn't. Been resting it but it's not getting better. It looks like there's swelling around the bone but it's just the bone, if I press my thumb above it, it's tender to touch.
