Correcting my squat grip resolved my own elbow pain without having to do the chinup protocol, but I still have a jar of liniment that I occasionally use when things ache. I assume it works as a rubefacient/counterirritant. (And yes, I know it's mildly toxic).
    Counterirritants do not fix tendonitis.

    I wondered about that, which is why I asked. The most dramatic effect I've seen with turpentine liniment is for big, ugly bruises and bad ankle sprains.

    While running the every five day pin-firing protocol, is there any issue with doing weighted chin-ups on regularly scheduled training days?

    I did pin firing 20*5 on Sunday and weighted chins on Tuesday morning. It hurt (as is expected) but I was able to complete it. The next pin firing is on Friday.

    Will these weighted chins interfere with the pin firing process?

    Which were going to heal anyway.

    I really don't understand why this has to be so complicated. I told you how to do it my way, you don't like my way, so just do it your way and see what happens.

    I will simply add that I had it real bad, adopted Coach's protocol, and it worked perfectly. It was hard and painful as fuck at first, but it worked.

    Probably ? Definitely. :-)
