    Also, if you’ve got tennis elbow in the left arm, does the right arm start on top? And, how many repetitions at a sitting, and per day?
    Thanks again.

    Yes, the involved side always starts on the bottom. Start with 2-3 sets of 15 repetitions with the red, and then progress to the next color when you can do 3 sets of 15 easily.

    my arm hurts too much to hold it out completely straight, do i need to wait until it hurts less to try this exercise?

    I am a chiropractor, I have just successfully treated a patient with lateral epicondylitis using this technique. I also adjusted, and used ART on the area. This was a chronic case, and may return, but this technique was what made the difference.

    To TheraBandAcademy: do you mean 2-3 sets of 15 per day, or 2-3 sets of 15– 3 times a day? I just bought the bars on ebay. Thanks

    The exercise should be performed only once a day

    I have tennis elbow in both elbows, and also golfer’s elbow in the right elbow…can I safely do the exercises for both arms, plus the reverse exercise?
