Repetitive and forceful motions like lifting weights can cause inflammation of a tendon called tendinitis (also tendonitis). When Joe Rogan experienced nagging pain in his inner right elbow, he tried to “meathead his way through it” and continued to work out as normal. That only made his elbow tendinitis worse. Eventually it got to the point where he was unable to do chin-ups or any heavy lifting for months and had to focus on running and yoga instead.
To treat his elbow tendinitis, Rogan tried expensive procedures like stem cell therapy and Regenokine. But the most effective treatment also happened to be the cheapest, a TheraBand FlexBar. By performing one exercise with the FlexBar multiple times per day and applying a CBD topical lotion, he was able to significantly reduce his elbow pain and get back to doing chin-ups.
The TheraBand FlexBar is a simple and effective therapy device for treating elbow tendinitis including both Golfer’s Elbow (inner pain) and Tennis Elbow (outer pain). It has been clinically-proven to reduce elbow pain while increasing tendon strength and can also be used for grip strength training.
A FlexBar is simply a 12-inch long piece of rubber with ridges for gripping. FlexBars come in varying levels of resistance (extra light, light, medium and heavy) determined by the diameter and indicated by color. Joe Rogan uses the blue TheraBand FlexBar with heavy resistance, requiring 25lbs of force to bend into a U-shape.
The main exercise performed with a TheraBand FlexBar is called the Tyler Twist, as demonstrated by Rogan below:
As Rogan’s pain is in his right elbow, he holds the bottom of FlexBar vertically with his right hand while grabbing and twisting the top of the bar with his left hand. He then extends both arms in front of him so that the bar is horizontal and slowly releases his right arm while maintaining tension on the left side. Rogan performs 10 to 15 reps of the Tyler Twist several times per day.
He has multiple FlexBars so that he can do the exercise whenever he has a spare moment at home, at the studio or in his car. As evidence of Rogan’s reach and influence, Amazon.com sold out of TheraBand FlexBars shortly after he first mentioned them on the JRE Podcast and he complained he couldn’t buy any more.
