    Hey Joe,
    Ive been having trouble for some time now with tricep exercises in which I cant seem to find exercises that I can do 100% pain free each time. Ive tried everything and alignment is perfect, I warm up properly, I’ve tried using heavy loads vs lighter loads and bracing is perfect . Even on my compound movements in which I use my triceps e.g. presses, all of those variables are applied although I get no pain in those movements. Might it be issues with the forearms and forearm strength considering I dont do any direct forearm training and during pull sessions I use straps most of the time?

    Thanks Joe. I have been implementing pronation and supination exercises before all of my push/pull days. Dual cable extensions fit me well but due to covid, my gym has half of all machines and cables taped off so i’m not able to do those at the moment. You mentioned BFR training and it reminded me that sometimes when I train biceps before triceps, everything just feels better around my elbow. For now i’m going to limit direct tricep exercises to help with the inflammation and work on some more forearm pronation and supination exercises instead. Thanks for the info as always.
