After one week sans weight training, I felt good enough to restart.
Having dealt with repetitive injuries in the past, I have come to understand that there becomes a fine line in which part of the healing process actually demands an execution of the exact movement(s) that caused the issue in the first place.
Always a good idea to consult medical advice on these subjects, but I have had success with significantly dropping the load, working around and working through.
In my case, the elbow tendonitis is work related, so at work, I simply take measures to support myself the best I can (switch arms when possible, brace etc.)
With that in mind, after my brief layoff, I dropped the poundage to very light weight, even on what would not be thought of as a movement in which the elbow was directly involved.—I won’t be squatting heavy for weeks, as the elbow is actually put in sort of a stabilizing position.
