I'd love to learn some top secret stretches as well. For some odd reason DB rows and heavy DB curls trigger my tendinitis. Not much else does.

Went to btn push press worked up to 125x5 was good overhead movements don't trigger it as much and went to 145x5 on cgbp also hindered by golfers elbow =[ I really lik the btn push press though feels nice when you get in the groove

They're rather hard for me to describe. Not that they're complicated, but I'm more of a shower than a teller. I will try to find some links and put them up. Seriously though, it wasn't until I went to the quacky chiro and got some laser treatment that things cleared up. I was battling the issue for three or four years. Finally got the employer to pay for some treatment. I followed it to a "T." And yes, it included putting the weights aside for a while. I'm not saying that would be your case, but just how it played out for me. I'll try to find something to link up.

At this stage in the game, I'd forget about joint support supp. At your age they won't hurt, but they probably won't help this condition much. It sounds like a muscle/tendon issue more than a joint issue. I would get diagnosed just to make absolutely sure you know what you're up against. If you're involved in baseball/golf/field events at school, then you might want to talk to the coach. If it is tendonitus, you need to let it rest. But get it diagnosed. Anything I tell you about my history, or any stretch or exercises I share might end up being counterproductive to you.

I'm scrounging up some links. I'll try to get things up tomorrow.

I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I DON'T PLAY ONE ON TV. THIS IS NOT MEANT TO DIAGNOSE OR TREAT DIDDLY SQUAT. IT IS MERELY DESCRIPTIVE OF TREATMENT I RECEIVED FOR A MEDICAL CONDITION. I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURY TO ANYONE WHO USES AND/OR MISUSES THIS INFORMATION.

Forearm and Wrist Stretches - Simple Stretches for Your Golf Warmup

Sports Medicine Advisor 2009.1: Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow) Rehabilitation Exercises
(click on the thumbnail to enlarge the exercise/stretch chart)

Some excellent videos:

There are some other stretches that my PT prescribed for me. I'll try to find the booklet I got and at least post up the descriptions. This should get you started anyway. Also, if you try the exercises using weights (dumbells, soup cans, hammers, etc.), DO NOT GET TOO HEAVY. Use the pink dumbells to start out, then advance to the light blue dumbells. Don't get any heaver than the chartruse dumbells. Maybe 10 - 12 pounds max is what you should EVENTUALLY work up to. This is to be theraputic.

Also, I would advise an elbow strap. It doesn't have to be the one shown in the 8:00 video, but something you can pick up at Wal-Mart for $10 bucks or so. Another thing. I was directed to wear a wrist brace at night (while I sleep) to keep my wrist in a neutral position. This works wonders, and if I sense a flair up coming on, I'll wear it for a couple of nights. This is another Wal-Mart item $10 bucks or so. It has some velcro straps that go around your thumb and fingers and a hard plastic strip along the underside to keep your wrist stable.

Ok well I think it's been a month since logging? if not not too much longer until I will have money for supps so then I am thinking about purchasing a very cheap whey maybe ON or getting scivation xtend? I've heard good things and am excited to be able to get some supps soon obviously this never will replace good food but it's always nice to have a little edge

Ok started out with squats put 210 on the bar went down and realized today was not a squatting day. I just listened to my body and set it down on the spotter bars.
Went to bench and was happy I listened. I barely pushed out the 8 singles with 165 the last one felt awesome. Next week saturday I'm going for 3 doubles.
Finished off with cheat rows 185x7 and 10 pullups I've never been this good with pullups before next time I'll grab a little weight for them maybe
