Doing pump work after my pull session today while only doing the pronated grip cable curls I felt a weird shock in my hand. It’s like you could feel the tendon shift over and almost like an electric shock/snaping over the joint.
After doing some hunting around on the web I came to a semi conclusion that it may be the extensor tendon in my hand. Not seeking medical advice but I do have an appointment to see my doctor about a cortisone shot for my left elbow. It just so happens that it’s my left hand where I felt this shock/tingle from. I will mention this to my doctor when I go to get checked out but could the issue I have with having tennis elbow be related?
I don’t think my hand position/form was an issue because the first notion of it I did stop and reposition my grip but nothing seemed to help with any type of change. I had this happen once a little over a month ago but thought it was from using a wider cable machine unlike the smaller cable setup I normally use. I immediately stopped using a pronated grip so I wouldn’t injure myself but thought maybe you might have some insight or if there’s a connection with having a bad case of tennis elbow. And maybe a suggested exercise to help it heal/warm up if it is injured and in need of TLC.
You mentioned that it can be loaded in the neutral position.. With that being said. Would using a 34″ hammer curl bar be just as effective since I can use it in the neutral grip and with both arms taking stress off of the hands to an extent?
