Been having bad elbow pain lately as well. Diagnosed via Youtube as Golfer's elbow. Pulled out my old elbow dildo last night and already getting some relief.
I'll be pulling mine out tonight.  I spoke with a therapist and he took a look at it and believes the source is my left pec minor.  It's not stretching enough for my left arm to get into position and is pulling my shoulder though my bi, elbow forearms out of position on that side.  So I'll be pulling out the lacrosse ball and going masochistic and torturing myself.
I may try out some FST, I think that's right...it's some sort of fascia stretching.  Well see. 

Deads went OK, failed 585, pulled 545 for 5 reps. Had some minor pain in my elbow, but it was bearable.

So I took the past few days off, almost a week, to rest and heal, also started taking CBD oil.  I was a little nervous about my left arm/elbow today bc it finally feels better, but I really think the CBD oil is helping. Lifted today and had no pain issues at all!
Flat BB
barx20
135x2x10
225x2x5
315x2x3
365x1
325x3x5
...oh I was solo today with no spotter, so that's how good I was feeling, which felt good after completely failing 365 last week.

Slight incline DB press
100x10
110x6
120x5

Rev pec dec
80x10
135x10
180x10/110x10

Also did some pull up work to really test my elbow and pull downs and had no issues.   If you've been wanting to try CBD oil, you can get some at my site

315x5
405x3
495x1
545xfail..what.....the....phuck  >:( >:( >:(

545x5

Not sure what went wrong with the deads, there's plenty of excuses...elbows are both sore AF and hams are sore AF from squats yesterday.  We'll see what happens next week.

Way to come back at it.  I find that almost impossible to do with deadlifts.  I'm guessing it was a technical issue for you?

545x9.5...vid on IG (touro_strong)
I usually pull without straps until I hit 495, I put on my versa grips at 405 today to try not to protect my elbow.  Seems to have work, only had a slight bit of pain compared to the horrendous pain I had previously.  I still don't understand how I can pull 545 for almost 10 and miss 585...didn't even break the floor.

Wonder if it's a forearm tendon that's causing the elbow pain at the attachment point (since the versa's are taking most of the strain).
