For the past year or so, I've been really into sport climbing. I climb 3-4 times a week, and it's been amazing for my grip strength and my pulling strength.
One thing that limits how often I can climb is the creeping sensation of tendinitis in the tendon between the tricep and elbow joint.
I've tried to find out how climbers in general deal with tendinitis, as it's a pretty common thing, but every damn thing I find deals with bicep tendinitis, and not tricep tendinitis. Oddly enough, my biceps haven't had a single issue.
So my question is; how would you go about actively preventing getting tricep tendinitis in the first place? Naturally, any onset of tendinitis is treated with cutbacks in the activity that causes it. But active prevention could be of more use.
Note that I'm not asking for how to treat an active case of tendinitis. I'll be consulting other professionals for that.
I found this excellent Q&A from a few years back: Avoiding Tendinopathy (suggested rest interval to prevent chronic pain)
My question differs in that the answer suggests methods for someone "coming straight off the couch", whereas compared to that, I'd like to think of myself as more intermediate. In other words, I'm not asking about the general "take it easy in the beginning" answer, but more so how climbers who train 6 times a week manage to avoid it. In other words, active prevention rather than passive prevention.
To answer the question of where I'm feeling the tendinitis, I have placed green markers on this figure.
