Unpainful Popping in the Back of My Arm
Elijah Hernandez posted a topic in MobilityHey, all. When I perform push ups, I feel a sort of "popping" in the back of my right arm close to my elbow. I imagine this is just the slippage of a tendon out of a "groove" or over some sort of knot that's in my arm, but I want to see if there is some sort of stretch of pre-hab that may fix this issue. As stated in the title, this causes no pain or anything... it just doesn't feel right. Thank you. Eli
Hamstring tendon going crazy - Middle split question
Jiseido posted a topic in MobilityI'd greatly appreciate your advices on an "anatomical" question. I'm currently training for the middle split. When I got into the position (with anterior pelvic tilt and toes pointing forward) as soon as I get past 10 inches from the ground I feel a sharp pain in my hamstring tendon just behind the knee. It feels like if I put more pressure on it it would pop or tear. I don't feel any stretch in my hips nor in my hamstrings, only in that tendon precisely on both legs. So it stops me from progressing and going lower to actually stretch my hips and hamstrings. My hips are much more flexible when I'm doing a frog stance for instance, I can almost touch the ground. And when I'm doing the pike I don't feel any strain on my tendons. One can simply stretch a tendon ? Or Is it anatomically impossible ? Someone told me you can only stretch muscles, the tendons can only adapt to the load. If so my tendons might be too weak to support the load ? Would it be better then if I slightly bend my knees to reduce the pressure ? Or is a bid idea in order to progress in the right direction ? I know that there were quiet a few topics about knee pain while stretching for the middle split but the OP's were talking about hamstrings pain. I can clearly feel it's my tendon here that is messed up... It is the white area on the bottom left of the right picture (grade III - complete tear). P.S. : Sorry if my post ain't straight to the point or grammatically incorrect.. English is not my mother tongue please forgive me .
Elbow pain / biceps tendonitis
Aleks009436 posted a topic in MobilityAfter trying out a variation of the pelican exercise I experienced some discomfort both inside my elbow and on the outside, (mostly on the inside). I have stopped working on this exercise and I will not go for it for a very long time. The question is then; should I take a break from training entirely or should I continue working on these exercises: Rings turned out support holds 20-60s German Hang 20-40s Front lever and back lever when the discomfort disappear Are there other exercises i should do to prepare/rehabilitate my elbow tendon?
Short Achilles Tendon
Zach Koch posted a topic in MobilityAfter hurting my back doing lower weight squats, my doctor told me that having a shorter achilles tendon made the barbell squat more dangerous. I'm now wonder if this is also why I've never been able to touch my toes despite daily attempts. Does anyone have, or is anyone familiar with a case where someone has a shorter achilles tendon and was able to reach fingers or wrist to toes. Is it feasible? My neice(5 years old) has it even worse than I do. She constantly toe walks and in her gymnastics class, is the only kid who seems to be having trouble. So, I'm asking for her as well.
Triceps Tendon Rehab/Prehab
Kutay Serova posted a topic in MobilityThere are a lot of topics on biceps tendon rehab/prehab but the triceps stuff are more scattered. I am confused so could anybody point me in the right direction? It would help everybody if we could sum up all those information in one topic. Also, spefically about what happens to me: It's a mild pain on the back of the elbow, towards the inside(between the arm and the ribcage). It only hurts when I am doing a wall handstand (I don't do any extreme stuff, just F1-PE1s). Is it a Tennis Elbow? Because its in the inside part of the back elbow.
