so after an 8 mth hiatus from training, i have started back up again. didnt lose too much strength actually over the past 8 mths, but i can tell my tendons have weakened. im having a lot of pain in my right thumb, basically its extremely painful when i straighten out my thumb. i believe it is from gripping the bar super tight on my deads, i pull without any straps and use an over under grip (right hand being under). a few mths back i got a cortizone shot and it cured it but now its back again, anyone have this before? if so did anything help besides the shot?

my inner left elbow hurts to the touch as well...feels like its right on the outter tip of the elbow bone on the inner part of my elbow, strange to say but i think this may be from squatting if you can actually believe that. i keep my hands in very very tight to my body when squatting and place the bar very low on my back so this creates a lot of pressure on my elbow i think. any suggestions besides widening my grip on squats?

thats ur medial epicondyle. Your forearm flexors attach there and your pronator. Take measures to not cause too much inflammation. Id suggest lets inflammation cool down. Then stretch ur muscles that attach there and work on building up ur forearm flexors. Straps may be helpful once in a while while you are working on building up your flexors
