    Hi there Rippetoe, I have really bad flexibility in my arm. If measuring from the wrist to ďstraight.Ē Itís a good 3 to 4 inches. I try to hang and all that but just donít know what to do with it. Admittedly I hate stretching. Iím also not naturally pliable. I think there is something Iím missing. I wanted to know if you had an approach to this that works? Thereís a lot of junk out there in the ether thatís just plain witchcraft.

    Yep. Elbow. Stays bent. Not even deadís straighten that sucker out. With all the BS out there itís hard to know what works. ďRegular stretching donít budge it.

    It's most likely a bony impingement from an old fracture. You can't stretch bone.

    What will they look at it and say? Something you don't already know?

    This condition is only in one elbow? Are you a video game player?

    Iím not sure what video games have to do with it. I have played them. I have also played basketball, softball, football. I lift weight. I just happen to have an issue with my right elbow. Thatís it.
