Does increasing the size of a weight bar diameter help prevent tendinopathies?

I am mostly interested in epicondylopathies (medial or lateral, i.e., tennis elbows and golfer elbows)

  • I don't know the answer, but from what I've read of products like that it seems like it might do the opposite since it increases load on the muscles. Do you have reason to believe otherwise? Feb 12, 2019 at 2:24
