I neglected my triceps on the last chest/tricep because my elbows were so sore. Tonight I decided, I would put some weight on them. I found the heavier and more intense I approached the bar, the less it stung my elbows. The base work at 315 felt terrible so did a few paused close-grip sets and put the elbows on ice.
Close-grips
315x8 for 5 sets
Close-grip paused
405/ 425 & 445.
Light shoulder work
Messed up workout but all and all I got it done.

Have you ever tried flossing your elbows to help alleviate some of that pain?

I came for the zerchers... but I stayed cause I am curious about the elbow flossing...

No clue what that is, but my elbows are shit, so I might learn something.

Go to Rogue or elitefts and look up floss bands. Good for any joint that is giving you issues. Depending on the severity of the issue it might take longer to get things going to normal.

Took my time warming up to evaluate how I was feeling under weight and also to loosen up a strained groin. Hit 500x5, 545(opener) & a nice 570 pound dunk. Depth was solid and just a bit of a reminder the groin was sore.
Next day did some max effort work on boardpresses. Did quite a bit of work but my best sets were 405x6 x2, a 455x2 and a heavy 475x1. No real pain to speak of in that left elbow, feel I rehabilitated it properly and it is over the hill in healing.
