Hi to all... I have read a lot through the forum but i can't fix some points about the straight arm work, so i've decided to start one of the many post about this topic. I want to focus on this because of my elbow that have been being hurt for many years. I can train without many problems in general but i want to understand if i can gain something by doing a good straight arm work or i only risk to damage more the elbows. After this introduction the point which i want to discuss about is the lock out of the elbows during the straght arm work. It should be simply a "putting the forearm in line with the arm" or it should be more an hyperextension? Because i've read somewhere in the forum that if, during the straight arm work, you hyperextend, it is because you haven't built a good base of strength in the biceps; or maybe i have understood it wrong. Sorry if it's so but english is not my first language. But looking at the Jordan Jovtchev DVD i have seen that he hyperextend his elbow during some exercise, or it seems so. Haw should the straight arm be done? What does straight real mean? Ok, at the end the problem is that i don't want to risk to stress too much my elbows. For now i'm doing plank and reverse plank each WOD and i found this two already stressing even if not till the pain. I'll be thankful to everybody will have the patience to leave a reply.
