Well, I was looking forward to dragging it out to St. Augustine... But I can't imagine sailing away from the post race festivities that will most likely transpire with us and Fleet 80 at Perry's. An awesome addition to an already grand event. The angles for the cape rounding shall necessitate some sporty double trapped spin reaching... Ding, start feeding the guns!

I have a filter? sh*

But in somewhat more seriousness (i mean, what could be more serious than that shakey-thingy)... you "wire-meat" types who hang on the side of the hull all day sawing the main/spin sheets.... what is the best method for preventing/minimizing tendonitis in your wrist, elbow and shoulder?

I was having a bad issue with tendonitis when I started crewing and I even got a prescription to deal with it which wasn't helpful at all. Terry Back sent me a very helpful list of things to do and I have added it below. The wrist curls and the hot and cold compresses made the biggest difference for me. I also do resistance training 3 days a week, regular exercise is key in my opinion.

From Terry Back:
In a nut shell you need to two things

1. Preventative

2. Rehabilitation

a. Therapy

b. Exercise

c. Heat

d. Ice

e. Massage

3. Anti-Inflammatory

a. Diet

b. Supplements

i. Ginger

ii. Turmeric

iii. Devil’s Claw

c. Ice







Prevention:



It is key to relieve pressure from the tendons … remember I mentioned “shortening” the tendon to take leverage off the elbow point? This is where the Band-IT and compression sock comes in. You can wear both or only one (You’ll find out which combination works best for you and sometimes it’s both and then only one). I wear these everyday--all the time… and especially when I golf!!! Or do lifting chores around the house.

Heat & Ice:

The elbow pain (at the bone) gets very little blood flow so you need to use heat to get what little blood flow into that joint. The Inferno Wrap and BioFreeze come in. I use the BioFreeze before I put on the compression sock (also before I exercise ... it’s great on the lower back too!)


You can apply ice after 30 minutes from using heat…the key is to let the temperature of the skin get back to normal temperature.


You can cycle the heat and ice as often as you think about it … it’ll be difficult to do it more than 3-4 times a day … always finish with ice (except at bedtime … I usually use the Inferno Wrap while I read and then lights out.


ICE AFTER EACH HARD WORKOUT…sailing, golf, lifting.

Exercise:

This is really the key … after your inflammation is down (maybe starting next week .. it’ll take you that long to get all this stuff).


I use dumbbells for wrist curls and forearm curls.

I use the TheraBar for the other exercises in the video (I also take my TheraBar to work it comes in handy to beat the staff).

You can do this every other day (3-4x per week).

Massage:

Start getting massages (you and the wife). I’ve got a great massage therapist if you need a recommendation. We have her come to the house. Additionally, you also massage your forearm with a small diameter ball (thumbs are good but mine get tired before I’m done getting the massage done). I haven’t used the Lacrosse ball but the one I have is a hard vulcanized rubber about 2” in diameter – like a superball.

You’ll probably need the blue or green bar. Here is a YouTube link talking about the use and therapy of the FlexBar.

Great info Dave. Thanks.

The only 'resistance' training I've done this week is to try and resist that frikkin cookie-dough ice cream sitting in the freezer...

Ok, guys now use some of that muscle and exercise to muster more sailors, our goal is 12 but pushing for 20. Get some of the I 20's that have to be sitting around out on the coast. Need five of each type boat to make a class. If you can't race, donate to the race: 2 ways : 1. Donate at the Florida 300 websight, 2. We now have a gofundme , all monies go to making a great race for the sailors. The competition will be awesome as always but the rest is going to add memories.!!!

The Sail Series Promotion USA inc. (SSPUSA) Florida 300 is a 501(3)c so any donations are fully deductible. Tell everyone even a couple bucks is helpful, don't make me do the ice bucket challenge to the old man or even Chuck.😎
