This was from an earlier post of mine, but is best stored in Gen Ig. It might be interesting to follow it up with the fact that octopi eat with their elbows:

“What is the main cause of tennis elbow?”

F: Tennis/Sport

A: Work


According to these chaps, more people get tennis elbow from “carpentry work, pulling files or doing factory jobs”.

Quote:
While tennis is one activity that can cause pain, "most tennis elbow I see is not related to playing tennis," says Dr. Mooar. In fact, most people get it from work rather than play. People can get tennis elbow from carpentry work, from pulling files or from doing factory jobs, according to Robert Sallis, M.D., assistant program director of the family medicine residency program at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, California. Other possible causes include stripping wallpaper, painting or working in the garden.

How can you train for tennis in the winter when you're unable to actually play tennis because of the snow? Does anyone have any ideas or tips for how to train/get in shape/stay in shape for tennis during the winter? I can't actually play tennis due to snow and lack of indoor courts, but are there any workout routines that people know of?
