When you have Tennis Elbow these are the key upper-body, strength-training gym exercises you should temporarily avoid…
While you’re still recovering from your Tennis Elbow / Lateral Epicondylitis injury AND potentially for a short time afterward.

The most important exercises to skip are:
– Anterior and Lateral Deltoid Raises
– (Especially Lateral Raises with a straight elbow)
– Reverse Biceps Curls
– Upright Rows
– Cable Exercises
There is an important, preliminary question, however:
Should you be doing ANY upper-body strength-training exercises while you’re recovering from Tennis Elbow, in the first place?
It’s not a simple question with an easy answer, but if you do decide it’s right for you to keep working out, then here are some key considerations:
– Whether you stop when it hurts or not!
– How much weight you use,
– Whether you warm up first,
– And how many sets you do per exercise.
In other words, it’s not going to matter much which exercises you do if you ignore these basics.
So be smart and warm up thoroughly with plenty of cardio, use a lot less weight than you normally would, do fewer sets…
And, most importantly, be sure to STOP if your elbow starts hurting significantly!
