Here's why I ask: I've been doing Naked Warrior high-tension stuff for the past two weeks and, when I went back to martial arts tonight, my elbows were very sensitive. And now they're aching. They should be tip top after two weeks off. By wild coincidence, a few days ago I read an article by Paul Wade in which he claimed his mentor, Joe Hartigen, said that pressing a barbell causes elbow problems because you're clenching the bar and, therefore, the flat hand of a push-up is better. because of reading this article so recently, I'm wondering if it's possible that maximally tensing my hands in the OAPs is damaging my elbows. They are aching right now.
