When you say Rippetoe chins, are we talking about an underhand grip slightly less than shoulder width apart?
I have had both tennis and golf elbow. Ibuprofen helps, but the only thing that gets rid of acute tendinitis for me is lots and lots of icing. As I have aged to 59, I have developed more chronic tendinitis in a couple of spots. Rest seems to help, ice, too. I just ordered HC based on your anecdotal results to see if that has any benefit. Can't hurt, might help. Thanks for the recommendation.
Btw, as far as your original diet of yolks, steak and wine:
I assume you are talking red wine? And you don't eat any vegetables/salad with dinner?
Chins : Yes, exactly. Supinated grip at whatever width works for you.
Wine: Yes, I drink mostly red wine - because I like it. But alcohol is complicated. Sure, avoid beer and sweet mixers, but I've never fully bought into any health benefits from the small amount of resveratrol in red wine. When I drink it will usually be a red wine or a dry prosecco or a nice sipping rum or a bourbon. But I drink for the social aspect and the Ballmer Peak.
After really looking at what happens when you metabolize alcohol, there is no solid health benefit argument. Yes some resvertrol is an anti-oxidant. Yes, alcohol changes (improves?) your insulin sensitivity. Yes, moderate alcohol consumption correlates with a higher all cause life expectancy. But in reality acetaldehyde (second stage of alcohol metabolism) is really nasty stuff - and you can't argue that processing it is healthy in any way.
I still drink wine or rum or bourbon with my steak. I eat a full meal once a day - usually at a bar and the social aspect is really good for me. And I write very good draft material when I'm between about .05 and .07 BAC. And there are some hacks you can do with the empty calories from alcohol that you can't do with empty calories from carbohydrates.
Veggies: No I don't do any sides or veggies with my evening meal. I'm pretty neutral on them though. In general plants that don't have too many calories are a No op. Eat them if you like them, don't if you don't. There is no real nutrition in them - at least compared to eggs and cream and steak and paté. I'm no fan of greens but I do like some horseradish or hot peppers or maybe a pickle or some kraut. But they don't add anything nutritionally. Plants with
calories either have carbs or fats. There, you have to pick and choose...
Well, that was pretty rambling. Sorry about that. Best of luck on your tendinitis Pugchief.
