Exclamation Elbows

You may have heard me complain about elbow soreness. Well, I've been reading about it and watching some YouTube videos to see if there's anything I can do about it other than icing it and taking ibuprofen. Turns out there are some exercises I can do to target the exact area that gets sore.
This demonstrates the exercise that seems to most directly target the affected area:


Only problem is that I don't happen to have a spare whey container to make the thing he suggests. I improvised!:



I cut a hole in an empty milk jug just big enough to fit my hand. I don't have sand to put inside this thing like he suggests, but I have some bands. I cut a small hole in the bottom, threaded a band through it, tied a knot on the end to hold it in place, and...



My body weight holds the band in place during the static hold. Just tried it out: it works really well! It definitely targets the exact area where I feel sore. With any luck, I'll be able to strengthen it up this week enough to where it will feel a bit better next week.
