    I had either that or tendonosis in the triceps tendon for several years. What seemed to aggravate it the most was LTEs. My PT suggested that it may have contributed the the triceps tendon tear I had in March while bench pressing.

    Triceps tendonitis doesn't occur in the absence of direct elbow extension assistance exercises.

    Good to know. So avoiding LTEs and the like should prevent a reoccurrence.

    Any thoughts on the likelihood of another tendon tear after I'm fully healed? My PT says very, very unlikely, almost unheard of. My ortho implied I'm an idiot for attempting such weights (265) at my age (57) and should focus on higher reps. My goal was a 300 lb bench and I hate to give up on it.

    All I can say is: the pin firing method worked for me. Since you like chins, perhaps you need to push yourself a little further for the stress. This method got me liking chins, so it was kinda new. (And I would not call 10 sets of 2 high volume. I did 20 sets of 8. Rip recommended 20 sets, this is important.)

    Sorry I cannot comment on the squat. But I would assume with some good arm strength, this would go away. And I would call good arm strength the ability to do 20 sets of some chins over the course of 50 minutes.
