    The elbow pain has gradually improved over many months but I gritted my teeth and stuck with it and a year later, it's gone.

    The tight hip flexor is still an issue that effects my pistol squat progress, but it is worlds away from where it was a few months ago. The bridges are working well along with holding the bottom position of self assisted pistols for that.
    Thanks, thats actually a lot quicker than I expected!

    I'm hoping once I start feeling less pain that will act as a bit of positive reinforcement for me to keep exercising as well.

    That is exactly what will happen. You'll be stronger, more mobile, and just simply feel better overall. The progress is a huge motivator for me, especially things like curing lifelong issues.

    My girlfriend didn't think I would stick with my training for very long, but I've stuck with it for 16 months now and I'm just as motivated today as I was the day I started. I'm in it for the long haul. I want my grandkids to see me doing pistols squats and one arm pushups.

    Do yourself a huge favor and keep training hard, don't ever stop, and a year from now you will look back and wish you had started sooner. Stay close to Coach's methods and you can not fail.

    I have to agree with Jethu on this, keep training and I'm sure you will feel better for it.
    personally I had quite rotten tendonitis in both arms. When I started with cc in January of this year I couldn't do 50 wall push ups, my forearms were on fire by about 30-35 reps. I had been training previously with full push-ups + 20kg on my back. I did the 3 tens that were in my routine and just worked through the pain. What a fool I was, I feel mystronger now, even though I am only doing step 3 kneeling push-ups

    Thanks. I've never been one known to be super sporty (or even sporty if I'm being honest!), and that was cemented by all the injuries (ironically probably caused through lack of exercise).

    I am stubborn though and once I see measurable progress I can stick to something no problem. Whilst unfortunately I can't turn back the clock and start this earlier, I'm hoping this will be it moving forward.

    I suffer a lot with tendonitis in the arms (RSI, De Quervain's, Carpal tunnel, the whole shebang) so its good to hear it helps.

    Funnily enough its the elbows putting up the most resistance with Wall Pushups. I'm guessing the tendons or muscles there are underdeveloped and not used to being worked.

    As others have said, there is a whole lot of benefit to sticking with this. I haven't felt as capable in a long time and I didn't think I was in bad condition before. It's a very nice feeling not to have niggles from training carrying over into everyday life.
    Finding this site may also be a great help to you, the posters on here seem really helpful, and just reading the threads can reassure you if you're having any doubts.
