Tennis Elbow? I don't even play tennis.

I am suffering with a wicked case of tendinitis, tennis elbow.
Last year, I had it in my left arm.
This past week, my right one decided to take a turn.
And just for fun, I burned the heck out of my right hand loading up the woodstove too.
My right side hates me this week, so I am trying to show it a little love and lighten up on it.

I have changed my exercises at the moment, obviously I cannot lift a ton or properly with my upper body at the moment.
I can always use a switch up anyway.
I have been doing body weight circuits and focusing more on getting my heart rate up and my lower body. Both could always use it anyway.
I have been adding 100 body squats daily too.
It's easy enough to pop out.
Hell, I do 100 reps pretty much every leg day with bar and a few small plates.

For instance, today part of my workout was:

50 jumping jacks
50 Knee Highs
50 Skaters
Repeat  the circuit 3x

Spidermans (30)
Mountain Climbers (30)

Body Squats (100)
[Attempted] Single Leg Body Squats (13 each leg) - I suck at these and need to work on my form and balance for sure.

Let's hope all of this extra helps make the booty pop more. 

In the meantime, it's stretches, icing, etc. for the old elbow.

I am so freaking happy that next week we may make it into the 40's and 50's.
Sure we still have about a foot of frozen snow in the yard, but 40's and 50's?!
It's practically a heat wave!
You have no idea!
Hey, this is exciting, especially since it was -12 degrees yesterday until about eleven am.
So, naturally, I have been lusting after swimwear.
And I am going to try and scrape the six inches of snow off of the back deck.
Maybe we'll try and grill this weekend.
I know, I know, we're nuts!
