How To Choose Running Compression Arm Sleeves? (Benefits And Myths)

How To Choose Running Compression Arm Sleeves? (Benefits And Myths)

Running compression arm sleeves have become very popular among runners. You will often see beginners as well as professional athletes sporting them while running. However, how to choose them is the biggest question that most newbies face as the choices are overwhelming.

When choosing a running compression arm sleeve check the fit, stretch, and the amount of compression that the sleeve is providing. Also, check if it has UV protection, is made from skin-friendly material, and is sweat-wicking.

How To Choose Running Arm Sleeves Correctly

If you are still confused, in this article we will provide you with all the details like:

  • What are compression arm sleeves?
  • Why should runners wear them a.k.a benefits of wearing them…
  • Choosing your first or the next compression arm sleeves properly.
  • Are cooling arm sleeves different than other arm sleeves and which one should you choose?
  • What is the reason behind wearing one arm sleeve?
  • Problems with compression arm sleeves
  • and more…

What are running arm sleeves?

Running arm sleeves are a cover made for arms with a combination of yarn and elastic or elastane materials. They provide compression to the arm and help with better blood circulation, recovery, and comfort.

They will sit around your muscle and will provide pressure on them. This improves the circulation of the muscles and improves recovery.

Also, when you run if you keep don’t wear a compression sleeve, there is some added vibration to the muscles due to unrestrained movement.

This also increases the chances of having more wear and tear on the muscles. Using this kind of arm sleeve reduces this overall effect and makes your run more comfortable.

Running arm sleeves are similar to that of any other compression gear for running – like the ones you use for calves, knees, ankles, legs, etc. So, these arm sleeves also provide you with similar benefits as these gears provide you.

Why do runners wear arm sleeves?

Runners wear arm sleeves for better blood circulation in their arms, faster recovery, and protection against UV rays. Also, it can be used as a style statement with funky colors and artistic printed materials.

Here is a list of benefits that running arm sleeves will provide you:


This is the primary function of a running arm sleeve. They hold down the muscles in place and apply gentle pressure on them.

This reduces DOMS or Delayed Onset of muscle soreness – That painful muscle ache that you get after an intense running session.

According to Healthline some of the symptoms of DOMS are:

  • Muscle tenderness.
  • Painful muscles.
  • Reduced range of motion due to stiffness.
  • Swelling of affected muscles.
  • Muscle fatigue.
  • Temporary loss of muscle strength.

Compression sleeves help to reduce the DOMS effects by improving blood circulation and removing lactic acid from your body. This further helps in a faster recovery.

Faster recovery

Running arm sleeves helps in your faster recovery. As stated above, it helps in the faster removal of lactic acid from your body.

Due to an improved supply of blood to the muscle tissues, they get a better oxygen supply. This helps to remove the lactic acid build-up and helps in faster muscle recovery.

Also, faster removal of lactic acid from the body reduces the time you take to recover from your running training. It also reduces muscle tenderness and soreness, which are unwanted effects of logging a lot of miles.

Improved Protection

When you run accidents may happen like you trip and fall down. This can develop injury due to friction with the surface on which you are running.

Frequent areas of such injuries are the elbows and the knees. And those bruises are far worse than the clean cuts against the skin.

If you have an additional layer of fabric on your arms, your chances of getting hurt are less even when you fall down.

This way your arm sleeves will provide you with improved protection in case of such accidents.

UV protection

Although not well all the arm sleeves, with many of them you get UV protection when you are running under the sun.

This helps you to reduce the chances of sunburn…also, UV rays are really bad for the skin and may cause skin cancer.

If you are running under the sun frequently, it is a good practice to use sunscreen to protect your skin. 

Having a compression running arm sleeve with UV protection is an added bonus as it will reduce the UV effect on your skin considerably.

Providing warmth and cool

When you wear an arm sleeve, it is an additional layer of fabric on your arms. In cooler weather, it keeps you warm.

Also, due to the breathability of the sleeves, it dissipated the generated heat and keeps your hands cool.

Style statement

There are many types of arm sleeves that are available with different kinds of printed designs. This improves their charm and you can make a style statement.

Since the material of the arm sleeve clings to your hand, the display of the print is even more prominent, providing you with that added style.

What to check while choosing a compression arm sleeve?

To choose a compression arm sleeve, the size, fit, material, brand, and color need to be checked. Also, any special features like UV protection and price also need to be checked.

Although the above summarises what you need to check while choosing a compression arm sleeve, below I’m describing them in more detail:


This is the first criterion that you should check for the arm sleeves. The arm sleeve should sit on your arm comfortably – not too tight, not too loose.

If you choose the wrong size, you will not be able to get the benefits of the arm sleeves. Most companies, provide you with a size chart with the radius of the sleeve and the overall length of the sleeve.

Before purchasing, it is good if you measure yourself up to pick the correct size.


The fit of the arm sleeve should not be too tight. Else you may end up having restricted blood flow instead of improved blood circulation.

You can give the arm sleeve a try and check if it is giving you that super restrictive feel.

UV Protection

Not all compression arm sleeves are made equal. Some have UV protection and some don’t.

While picking an arm sleeve check if yours have UV protection. Sometimes it is mentioned on the labels.

Other times, the fonts are so small, that it becomes almost impossible to derive this answer. If you are confused, check with the salesperson of the store.

If you are buying online then, most of the time, this will be mentioned clearly either in the product title or in the description.


Check if the material that is of your compression arm sleeve is made from sweat-wicking material or not.

This will keep the skin surface cool and dry and it will itself remain dry. This will provide you with some relief as you will not have to deal with the wetness of the sweat and that odor.

Color and print

This is one of the important aspects if you want to have a cooler arm sleeve. If the color is on the lighter side of the spectrum, you will have a cooler arm sleeve.

If the color is on the darker side of the spectrum, it will be warmer.

Apart from the color, another important aspect is the print on the arm sleeve. Some like a floral print and some like an edgier or tattoo look.


Some of the arm sleeves are costlier than others. If you compare the price of the popular brands with that of the others, you will find that the branded ones are more expensive than the others.

But does that make them better?

Not necessarily…

You will find many good arm sleeves at a more reasonable price, but make sure to check the reviews…

Check the reviews

This is one of the ways that we all use to judge the quality of the products. The thumb rule is, that the higher the stars the better the product.

However, this should be taken with a pinch of salt.

The reviews on many of the sites have a lot fake. So, my idea is to scroll past the 4 stars and the 5 stars…and check the 3 stars…

This provides me an idea of how good the product is…or is there any repetitive problem that is evident from the comments?

Also, check the ratio of the high stars vs low stars…this will also give a rough idea about the quality of the arm sleeve.


Some of the arm sleeves come with a thumb hole. This helps to keep the sleeve in place. 

Also, some prefer it and some don’t. While picking an arm sleeve check what you like. 


This is mainly present in the arm sleeves for soccer…however, if you want to add some added protection against accidents you can go for an arm sleeve with padding.

The padding is not present throughout the length of the sleeve but in the key areas…


In the above sections, we have provided the details of how you can choose a compression arm sleeve that will work for you.

More than anything, if you try on a compression arm sleeve that will give you a fair idea of which one to choose.

Also, it will keep you comfortable and make your recovery faster…Try them, and you will not regret it.

10 Safety Tips For Runners For Avoiding Injury

10 Safety Tips For Runners For Avoiding Injury

Running injury is common among runners. Some are related to the sport whereas some are related to external circumstances…

Today we are providing you with some safety tips that will help you to avoid the most common running injuries.

So, let’s begin…

Avoid Running Injury Getting

10 Safety Tips For Runners To Avoid Getting Injured…

While running is fun, getting injured is not fun…it will make you not only deal with the pain, but also you may have to take a break from running for some days or weeks.

However, with a bit of care, we can actually avoid such injuries to a great extent, and here is how to do it…

1. Severe muscle cramps

Muscle cramps are very common among runners. That severe pain that suddenly shoots through your body can be one of the most dreadful experiences.

The immediate effect of this is that you have to stop. No matter how good of a runner you are, you will have to stop.

And these cramps can come up from nowhere. For example, you are running, suddenly your calf muscles start to get stiff, and then within seconds you are withering in pain.

Or you may have that dreaded side stitch which is oh…so common…

And I’m pretty sure you know how exactly it feels…

But why does this keep on happening?

Well, one of the main reasons for that is you are having lesser fluid intake…

This is also very common among runners who are in tropical countries where the weather is generally hot and humid like India where I’m from.

The humidity of the weather sometimes reaches almost 99% and the heat…sometimes 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

In such weather, you will sweat profusely and will lose a lot of water from your body in form of sweat. Not only water but with sweat, you tend to lose sodium and potassium from your body.

These electrolytes if not replaced on time, can lead to severe muscle cramps…

So, what to do?

Mix some electrolyte powder with water and drink it before your run. Alternatively, you can also mix sugar and salt with water which also acts as a form of electrolyte.


  • 1 cup of water.
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of salt.
  • 1/2 tablespoonful of sugar.
  • 1 wedge of lime. (optional).

 Mix all the last three ingredients with the water and drink it before heading out for your run.

2. Not warming up

This is one of the biggest mistakes that many runners make, be it a pro or an amateur.

Not warming up before your run potentially opens you up for severe injuries like muscle cramps, hamstring pull, etc.

However, in severe cases, you may have to take a break from running for a couple of weeks to months to recover from the injury.

You will get behind with your training and you will not be able to reach your running goals on time.

Instead, if you focus on doing that warm-up routine before your running, then you will be able to potentially avoid these kinds of problems.

When doing warm-ups, it is best to first focus on your mobility after which you should do some light cardio to get your heart rate going.

Here is a simple mobility routine that you can follow before your running to improve your body’s overall range of motion:

3. Running on heels

For many runners, running on their heels comes easy. Also, the way running shoes are constructed nowadays also encourages heel strikes.

However, running on heels is like putting a hard break on your car while moving at considerable speed.

It puts a lot of impact on your joints starting from the ankle joint to the knee and the hip joint.

Over time, it can cause a lot of damage to these joints and can cause you to go through a lot of pain and discomfort in your day-to-day life.

It is encouraged to run on your midfoot or forefoot which will help you to avoid these kinds of injuries.

Some of the other benefits of running forefoot are that your speed will increase almost immediately and your hamstrings will not get pulled.

4. Only focusing on running

Running is a form of cardio exercise. It helps you to burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time…however, it does very less to strengthen your whole body.

If you are overweight and try to only run, you may experience a lot of pain in your joints. Also, as you start losing weight, you will end up with loose skin (not fun, I tell you…)

A way to avoid this is to do strength training. The amount of fat that you will lose will be replaced with muscles. This helps your body to maintain its tone and structure.

Also, if you strength train, your body will be more apt in dealing will injuries. Even if you fall down, it will be strong enough to protect you from some of the impacts.

This is not the same, with only cardio training…

Also, the development of muscles will be faster with strength training and you will be able to achieve the body you want in a shorter period of time.

5. Avoiding carbs at all cost

Carbs have a bad rep these days…however, they are one of the primary food groups in our nutrition regime.

If you are a runner, this is one thing that you must include in your meals. This will help you to build up the glycogen store in your body, which will be used up when you go for those strenuous running sessions.

Otherwise, as you run, over time your muscles will get weaker which will lead to injuries like:

  • Muscle pull
  • Sprain
  • Body pain
  • Muscle or tendon tear, etc…

But why will this happen?

Without carbs, your body doesn’t have enough fuel to go on with…so it will turn to the resources that are present in your body…namely protein and fat…

It will start to break them down and convert them to energy…this is why your muscles will get weaker and you may have to deal with the above issues.

6. Running with loud music

The tips that we have provided above are directly related to running itself. However, you may be doing everything right with running but may still end up getting injured.

Here are some of the reasons, that may lead to an injury indirectly…

Running alone may become boring sometimes…

As a way to not be bored, many of us take refuge in music…When using music, it is good to have it at a level, where you are able to hear what is going on in the surroundings.

However, if the music is too loud, you may not be able to hear the honking of the vehicles or any other warning signs that may help you avoid injuries…

For example, if the music is too loud and you are turning through a corner, you may not hear the warning honk that a car made…and you may end up crashing into the car…

My point is, please keep the loudness of the music to that extent which will help you to be aware of the surroundings and will help to stop yourself from meeting with accidents.

7. Running with a worn shoe…

This is a common reason for many runners. We don’t keep track of the number of miles that our shoes have already worked out for.

After around 300-500 miles, the cushioning of the shoe is not good…

It gets compressed and may develop uneven areas…

This puts a lot of strain on your Achilles and the plantar fascia band…which leads to inflammation of these areas…

And the pain…you will feel it with every step and you will actually need to implement a lot of things to recover from this injury.

However, if you keep a track of the mileage of the shoe, you may be able to avoid such problems.

8. Running through logged water

This is a common scenario in my area…When it pours, there is a lot of water logging, and many times you may have to cross water that is knee-deep…

Let’s say you are running on a day when it is pouring or maybe after the rains and you encounter a road where the water is logged…

Rather than changing course, you throw caution to the wind and brave through the water log…

Problem is, that you did not see the huge pothole that is hiding under the water, waiting for you to step on it…

As a result, you end up with a twisted ankle and a long break from running.

This is a milder scenario…what if, instead of the pothole, it was a manhole that is missing its lid…

It could even turn into a fatal accident…

When you encounter water logging and is not able to see the road under water, it is best to not brave through those water and change the course.

9. Not being observant of the traffic

If you are a runner who is running inside the city, be careful of the traffic that is coming your way…

This is especially true when you are running through the signals…

Most of the time, drivers are careful…however, you should not put your life at risk or trust someone else with it.

What if the oncoming car’s driver is not mindful?

Be observant of them and cross the junctions when the signals are in your favor…

This is especially true for the runners in India…

In the morning when the traffic is less, many of us have the habit to overlook the signals and the traffic…

We run as if we are in a park and are not cautious enough about the traffic…this is very dangerous and many accidents happen this way…

10. Trusting your luck too much

Many of the unpleasant situations that arise during running can be attributed to predictability.

If someone tails you, or something similar, it may be because you use the same route, at the same time, and every day…

This gives a chance to the attacker to learn about your habits…

Once they are sure about your habit they may devise a plan and some of those bad situations arise…

It is not that you may not get into such situations if you are unpredictable, but the chances reduce drastically…

Also, if possible, try to use a time when people are around…instead of late nights or very early mornings…


The above list of tips is by no means exhaustive…however, but they will provide you with a pretty decent list of tips that are applicable to most of us.

There may be other ways to avoid running injuries…I would encourage you to list them below in the comment section.

11 Sure-Fire Ways To Destroy Your Weight Loss Progress

11 Sure-Fire Ways To Destroy Your Weight Loss Progress

Losing weight is a challenge in itself. The journey is long and will test your discipline. You will inadvertently do some mistakes along the way.

Some of these mistakes can prove to be detrimental to your weight loss and main even result in weight gain.

We have gathered a list of 12 weight loss mistakes that will jeopardize your progress.

Weight Loss Mistakes

10 Weight Loss Mistakes To Avoid

Losing weight takes a lot of effort and discipline. You have to literally adjust your lifestyle to make a lasting change.

However, this means you will have to sometimes be very boring and do the same things over and over again. Your mind may not be up for it and ultimately it will make you do things that are not good for your weight loss.

Here is a list of 10 weight loss mistakes that we commonly make that end up ruining our overall progress…

Some of them you are aware of and some may be new to you…try to avoid as many of them as possible.

1. Not Sticking to a calorie deficit diet

This may be the cardinal sin when it comes to weight loss. No matter how hard you work out, you will not lose weight if you don’t stick to a calorie-deficit diet.

This is the primary thing that you need to implement if you want to lose weight.

Most of us, me included, actually may have started off with this calorie deficit, but then gradually will start steering away from it.

For me, the biggest challenge is the 5:00 PM snacks. In many families where I’m from, we enjoy the evening tea with family where we have some of the most unhealthy snacks available.

And it doesn’t help if you are a foodie and just want to shove those snacks down your throat as soon as they are in front of you. (read me)

So, navigating this scenario was very tricky for me…and I tried to stick to a low-calorie food that I like.

But every day it is a constant struggle and sometimes I do end up giving in.

Also, throughout the day you may be having some things that you may not be aware of…like having a biscuit or a cookie with your tea or coffee…or maybe adding some sugar to your coffee…

I switched to black tea without sugar. However, since I like it, this switching was not difficult for me…

Try to find ‘your’ easy and stick with it…Your goal should be to cut around 500 calories from your day through your food intake…this can be in many different ways and not always giving up your favorite things.

However, many times despite our best efforts, we cannot stick to the deficit…partly because we don’t know what amount of calories each ingredient has.

Here is a way to get to know the exact calories that a food ingredient has. This will help you to stick with your food choices more easily…

2. Having carbs in the evening

Carbs are a good source of energy. However, they are high in calories and you will need a lot of activities to burn them.

In the evening our physical activities reduce. We return home from work and then relax. We move around the home also less and the amount of calories that we burn also tends to be lesser.

If we have carbs in the evening, then we will not be able to burn them. Also, the thermic effect of carbs is much lesser than the protein.

In other words, the calorie required by the body to digest carbs is much lesser than that of protein.

That is why, if you have carbs in the evening, you tend to store them in the body. As a result, your fat gain may be quicker than you expect.

What can you do then?

Avoid carbs in the evening. You can set up a time after which you will not have carbs in the evening, say 4:00 PM.

Instead, have a decent amount of protein and vegetables in your dinner. This will provide you with good nutrition and will reduce your chances of bloating.

3. Having a lot of fired or oily food

If you are a habitual eater of fried foods and have a lot of oily food, you will have weight gain easily.

Even if you are working out a lot, you will not be able to go into a calorie deficit to reduce your weight.

Actually, fat contains 9 calories per gram which is almost double the number present in protein or carbs. As a result, consuming it in high amounts will result in weight gain.

Here is an experiment done to check the effects of saturated fat on weight gain. This result conclusively states that saturated fat actually resulted in weight gain in the test subjects as compared to the test subjects who were not fed saturated fat.

4. Not following a calorie maintenance diet according to bodyweight

This is one of the easiest ways to mess up when you have lost weight and trying to maintain the same.

Many people will either eat way too less or way too much more than what their body needs.

In either of the cases, your body will end up storing the food as fat. Your body is adaptable. If you eat a very low calorie your body will slow down your metabolism and will try to store the food that you are already intaking.

The result will be an increase in body weight.

Also, if you are eating way too much, your body will end up storing the excess amount of calories in the form of fat, if you are not doing that much of physical activities.

Eat a calorie that is required by your body according to your body weight and age. Here is a calorie calculator that will exactly tell you how many calories you need to maintain your body weight.

5. Focusing only on cardio and not strength training

Cardio is good for weight loss. However, if you focus only on cardio, then it may not be an effective tool to get the body composition that you desire. Although you will lose weight, however, if you want to get a toned body, you may not be able to get that without strength training. Also, with strength training, chances of muscle loss will be lesser and your overall body strength will improve. When you strength train, your body burns the calories for the next 24 hours, causing your body to become a better fat-burning machine. Also, since your body will gain more muscles, it will be able to burn calories more efficiently.

6. Not having clean food

One of the worst things that you can do to jeopardize your weight loss is to continue to indulge in junk food and not have clean food. These kinds of foods actually have a huge amount of calories condensed in a small package. For example, a small burger will have more calories than a huge serving of fresh salad. Also, one more mistake that we often do, is to have salads that are loaded with calories in the form of different condiments. One general rule of thumb is to take your condiments separately when served. This will help you to control the number of condiments that you add to your salad. Also, avoid salads that have boiled noodles or other kinds of high-calorie ingredients. This will keep you within your selected calorie range. If you eat clean food that helps you to increase your metabolism.

7. No cheat meal

This sounds exhausting, isn’t it? However, if you eat too many calories in your cheat meals then your overall weight loss progress will be hampered. For example, if you need to have a calorie deficit of 500 calories a day to lose weight and you end up consuming maybe 1500 calories extra on your cheat day…then you end up destroying 3 days of progress… So should you give up enjoying life? Nope… Instead, try to have it in moderation when you go out… Also, if you see that your weight scale is stuck and your weight is not going down, try to add a little bit more calories to your diet for a week or two. You will see a slight rise in your overall weight, however, your body’s metabolism will get reset. So, when you go back to your actual diet, it will reduce your body weight overall. Here is an excellent video that will explain this concept more clearly.

8. Having more than 2 and a half hours of gap between meals

If you are on a weight loss diet, then you may be consuming a far lesser amount of calories than you used to. Your body will go into a food conservation or storage mode easily if it believes that it is not going to get the food in a timely manner. In other words, if you don’t provide it with food at a regular interval, it will go into a fat storage mode. So, never go without food for more than 2 and a half hours of gap. This will reduce your metabolism and you may end up gaining weight. Instead, have food at regular intervals and this will help you to keep your metabolism level at optimal. You may be able to see sustained weight loss for the number of workouts you are doing.

9. Not Increasing Protein Intake

Protein has a way of keeping you full for the longest amount of time compared to carbs and fat. It stays in your stomach for a long time and keeps you satiated. Also, the thermic effect of food for protein is more. So, you will end up burning more calories, if you intake more protein. When you are working out and dieting, you may end up losing muscle mass along with fat. If you keep your protein intake less, then you may not be able to maintain your body composition. Also, you may get weaker with weight loss. One easier way to maintain your muscle mass is to increase the amount of protein that you are having. It will help you to improve your overall body composition and will also help you to burn calories more efficiently.

10. Not Increasing Vitamin C intake

When you are losing weight, sometimes your skin takes a toll. It can sag a bit (may not happen if you are losing weight in a healthy way and not starving yourself).

Also, the luster of the skin also fades sometimes.

If you take Vitamin C, it will not let these things happen to your skin. Also, it will improve the overall liver function and improve your stomach health.

How can you increase Vitamin C intake?

You can do it with the help of citrus food like lime, sweet lime, oranges, etc. Gooseberries are also a good source of Vitamin C.

You can also use this Vitamin C supplement or you can get natural juices that are extracted from the fruits.

11. Not Taking Advantage Of NEAT

This is not a new concept. Actually, if you are trying to lose weight, you probably already know about NEAT. NEAT is nothing else but non-exercise activity thermogenesis. If that sounds gibberish then simply put, it is the number of calories you burn with non-exercise-related activities. After exercise, most of us have this habit of sitting down and not moving the entire day. The effect is, that we will see much slower progress than we actually would be seeing. Sometimes, to budge the scale, you will have to put in this extra effort and for that, you have to move around more. You can go for an evening walk or a morning walk, or you can do more house chores…etc. Find your ways to incorporate NEAT into your lifestyle. When nothing moves after putting in a lot of effort, often this will help you to move the scale in your favor.


Weight loss is not complicated if you put some basic disciplines in place. However, we often miss out on those and end up hampering our progress.

However, although we can get back on track, however, it will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Try to avoid the above list of mistakes and you will mostly be on track for your weight loss progress…

8 Elbow Strengthening Exercises When You Have Lifting Pain

8 Elbow Strengthening Exercises When You Have Lifting Pain

Elbows are very important joints and we tend to forget them until there is something wrong with them or we experience pain. Once we have that kind of pain, our day-to-day life activities get restricted and we cannot get back to it until this is fixed.

To strengthen an elbow that has pain, firstly rest is needed for its recovery. Then tricep exercises should be performed with progressive overload after doing proper warmup exercises.

Elbow pain can occur due to overuse of the joint while doing day-to-day work or when doing tricep workouts for a long time. This can also happen when lifting heavy weights for which the joint is not sufficiently strengthened or stretched.

There are many reasons for elbow pain. However, there are mainly only a couple of reasons for which you may have to deal with painful elbows.

Elbow joint is more resilient than many other joints in your body. It can help you to pick up a tremendous load and still doesn’t complain.

However, when you subject them to heavy lifting without proper conditioning, they may start to develop pain, which may be hard to get rid of.

Muscles and bones related to the elbows

The structure of the elbow joint is more like a hinge joint and is made up of different bones and muscles.

Elbow joint bones and muscles

The main bones that are present in the elbow joint are the end of the humerus, ulna head, and radius head.

The humerus is the bone of the upper arm whereas the ulna and the radius are the bones of the forearm.

Their meeting point is the elbow joint which not only has the bones but also has a lot of important muscles that together function with the bones to give you an effortless movement.

These muscles are joined with the bones with the help of tendons.

The pain that you experience is mainly due to the inflammation of these tendons, especially in the triceps.

Tricep muscles


There are three muscles that make up the triceps

  • Long head
  • Short head/lateral head
  • Medial head

All three muscles are attached to the elbow joint using tendons.

When you are folding or relaxing the elbow joint, the triceps are the main group of muscles that comes into play, especially the long head and the medial head.

Also, they work as a supporting group of muscles when you do any kind of chest exercise like a chest press.

When you excessively load these tendons without letting them recover, you will start experiencing elbow pain.

Precautions to take for elbow pain

No matter how careful you are elbow pains can happen. Maybe you picked up more load than you are supposed to, or you may have picked up the load in a haste or unmindfully.

However, no matter the reason, now you have elbow pain. First and foremost, before trying to strengthen your elbow, first, try to follow the below precautions:

1. Use Elbow Guard/Brace

Elbow guards are one of the safest ways to support your elbow when they are recovering. It will provide external pressure to support the joint and don’t let the elbow joint move too much.

This will aid you if you have to lift up things in case this is unavoidable.

2. Contraction relaxation exercises for triceps

This is one of the easiest exercises to do for the triceps that will also help in its healing. Also, it will strengthen your elbow joint by strengthening the triceps and the associated tendons.


  • Keep your elbow joint straight.
  • Hold the smiley ball in your palm.
  • Now squeeze the smiley ball.
  • Release the pressure squeezing pressure on the smiley ball.
  • Do this 2o rounds, 3 sets for each arm.

Doing this exercise will activate the tendons and the triceps.

3. Do any press-down movement with a nominal weight

If you are doing any press-down movements use a nominal weight. The weight should be such that you can do 30-40 reps of press down with that weight.

Other than using weight, you can also use thera band or resistance band. However, here also, the key is to use such a resistance that you can do 30-40 reps.

This is a kind of static warmup and will warm up the triceps properly. This will make also get the blood flowing into them properly and will aid in faster recovery.

Once you have warmed up your triceps sufficiently, you can increase the weight and do these pressing down movements and other elbow strengthening exercises.

However, there are certain exercises that you should avoid when doing tricep exercises when you have this kind of elbow pain.

Exercises to Avoid when having an elbow pain

When you have elbow pain, avoid the following exercises, until you have healed properly…

  • Skull crusher
  • Dumbbell lying extension
  • Single overhead extension

Once you have recovered from your elbow pain, you can resume doing these exercises.

However, if certain exercises may be detrimental to your already painful elbows, there are some exercises that you can still do…

We have segregated the list of exercises that you can do at the gym and at home. If you are a gym goer then you can use the machines that are at your disposal.

Tricep exercises for the gym

Rope Press-down

For this, you would need a cable machine. These are large machines that have a rope that you can pull down.

This rope is attached to the weight which sits at the bottom of the machine. You can increase or decrease the weight according to your strength level.


  • Hold the rope ends with both hands.
  • Keep your chest up, and neutral spine.
  • Stand a bit back from the rope.
  • Keep your shoulders and the rest of the upper body fixed.
  • Now using your triceps muscles start pulling the rope down until your elbows are straight.
  • Now slowly return the rope and your arms to the starting position.
  • Do this for 20 reps, 3 sets

Precaution: Don’t release the rope too quickly on your way back up. This can put unnecessary strain on your elbow joint.

Pulley Press down

For this, you will again use the cable machine as you have used in the exercise above. Steps
  • Hold the cable handles with both hands.
  • Push your hip backward while pulling the cable straight down.
  • Your elbows should remain close to your body.
  • When releasing, let the cable move starting up and you will be pushing the cable down back using your shoulder and your elbows.
  • Do this for 20 counts, 3 sets.

Other than doing these exercises, you can combine them with the below home workout routine for strengthening your triceps.

Home tricep and elbow strengthening routine

In this workout routine, we will focus on some basic movements that will help you to strengthen and develop your triceps without injuring them further.


This is one of the most effective exercises to do at home while training your triceps.


  • Lie down on your abs with your legs stretched straight backward.
  • Place the palms of both of your hands beside your chest.
  • Tighten your core and engage your glutes.
  • Now come up as up exhale, until your elbows are slightly bent.
  • Inhale while going down.
  • Do this for 20 counts, 3 sets.

If you cannot do a full push-up, you can always do a half push-up or a more beginner version of the push-up.

Variation of full push-ups for absolute beginners

This is a version of the push-up for absolute beginners. Beginners don’t have the strength yet to do a full push-up (like me). Also, if you are like me, you may also find it challenging to do a half push-up as well.

So, what is the solution?

You can do a variation of push up, that is picking up the body from the ground step by step…


  • Lie down on your abs with legs stretched straight backward.
  • Place the palms of your hand on the side of your chest.
  • Exhale and lift the upper part of your body.
  • Then lift your hip.
  • Now straighten your knees by lifting them off the ground. Your toes remain on the ground.
  • Inhale and bend your knees until they touch the ground.
  • Now release your hip until it touches the ground.
  • Now release your upper body until it touches the ground.
  • Do this 20 times, 3 sets

This will reap similar benefits for your triceps as with the full push-up. Once you can do 40 rounds without stopping, move on to half push-ups and then to full push-ups.

Close Grip Push up


  • Now lie down on your abs.
  • Your palms will be next to your chest but as close as possible.
  • Your elbows should be tucked in and pressed to your body.
  • Now engage your core and glutes and with an exhale bring your body up.
  • Inhale and go down.
  • Do this for 20 counts, 3 sets.

This kind of push-up will be difficult for beginners. You can do the above step-by-step variation of push-ups with a close grip.

Back Push Up

In this push-up, your back will be facing the ground. You can do this in two ways. Firstly you can do it on the bench as a form of bench dips, or you can do this with your body in a tabletop position.

I’ll be providing you with the steps of back push-ups in the tabletop position.


  • Lie down on the ground on your back.
  • Fold your knees and keep the feet near your glutes.
  • Place your hands at the side of your ears.
  • Engage your core and glutes.
  • With the help of your triceps and glutes, bring your body up till your elbows are straight.
  • Exhale and relax your hip to the ground.
  • Do this for 20 counts, 3 sets.

Close Grip Wall Push up

This is another variation of push up that you can do on the wall. This is a beginner-friendly exercise and will help those who cannot do a close grip push-up on the floor.


  • Stand with your hand straight on the wall at chest level and close to your body.
  • Now keeping the elbows tucked in, bend your elbows and bring your body to the wall.
  • Straighten your elbows while simultaneously bringing your body up.
  • Inhale while going down and exhale while going up.
  • Do this for 20 counts, 3 sets.

Both Hand Overhead Extension With Loop Band (Resistance band)

This is a very targeted exercise for your triceps. However, it is not a compound movement like the pushups but is very effective. You can also progressively overload as you get comfortable with the resistance that you are using. Steps
  • Stand with one leg planted at the back.
  • Use that foot to hold the resistance band so that it doesn’t move.
  • Now hold the resistance band with both your hands and from behind your head.
  • Now straighten your elbows until they are straight while pulling the resistance band.
  • Now relax your elbows and go back to the starting position.
  • Do this for 20 counts, 3 sets.


Although there can be a lot of reasons for having elbow pain, however, mostly the cause is overloading or overuse.

If you get that kind of pain, it is better to take a break and give your elbows some rest. Once the pain subsides, work towards strengthening your elbow joint by focusing on strengthening your triceps.

If you don’t know which exercises to do or what routine to follow, use the routine that we have provided in the above sections.

Best Running Shoes For Delivery Drivers (Detailed Review)

Brooks Glycerin 20

Brooks Glycerin is one of the most comfortable running shoes that are present in today’s market. Its sole is very forgiving and provides you with day-long comfort.

If you are a delivery driver, this is a good shoe for you. It has a thick cushioning that can absorb almost any kind of shock.

Also, it will not cause any problems for you while driving. If you are driving for long hours and do delivery then this shoe can be great for you.

Its cushioning is soft and will keep your feet fresh throughout the day. The in-shoe environment is smooth and comfortable and will not cause shoe bites or blisters.

Also, if you do delivery of heavy stuff and need stable footwear to be part of your day job, then this is the perfect one for you.

The outsole is grippy and is made from highly durable rubber. This doesn’t get eroded easily with the daily friction from the delivery vehicle controls or from walking around in them.

It is spacious and in general, the width of the shoes that are being produced by Brooks nowadays has slightly more width than the previous versions.

This will not cramp your feet and allows ample space for toe splay while pushing down the vehicle controls.

Also, it doesn’t need breaking in and you can use it for your work right out of the box.

Best for: Long hours of driving, lifting heavy items



  • Not waterproof.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22

This is a good shoe for someone who drives a delivery truck but has overpronation. If you have overpronation, and use something like the previous shoe mentioned, although your feet will not complain, your knees will surely do.

The above shoe is a neutral shoe and doesn’t prevent your feet’s inward movement. This makes it bad for delivery drivers with overpronation.

Their feet will invariably turn inward and when they are doing a delivery, this will happen at every step of their walking. By the end of the day, this may cause you to have a painful knee just because of this added movement.

If you use Brooks Adrenaline GTS 22, then you will not have to deal with this problem. Your feet will not turn inward as they will be controlled by the Holistic Guiderail system that is present in this shoe.

It will bring your feet back into the line of motion and will provide you to have a more comfortable delivery experience.

The midsole of Brooks Adrenaline is made up of DNA LOFT. The midsole is made from 100% DNA LOFT and provides you with excellent cushioning.

It has ample space in the toe-box allowing your toes enough space for the toe-splay when using the clutch control, brake, or accelerator. Also, it will support the toe splay when you are walking to do the delivery.

The cushioning of this shoe is great and will keep you comfortable for a long time, even if you have to stand all day.

It is a high-drop shoe and is great if you are suffering from Achilles issues. Also, it is great for preventing blisters.

Best for: Overpronation, cushioned comfort, anti-slip


  • Good for long hours.
  • Controls pronation.
  • Enough space for toe-splay.
  • Shock absorbing.
  • Good for sesamoiditis.


  • Not waterproof.
  • Not good for uneven terrains.

New Balance 1080 v12

New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080v12 is one of the most comfortable shoes around. The cushioning of this shoe is simply exceptional. It is soft, shock-absorbing, and provides you with excellent comfort.

The outsole has an excellent grip and provides you with good traction when you are out for delivery.

It provides you with a good grip on almost any kind of surface except for the mud, sand, and trail-like terrains. Then again this is a shoe that is meant for the urban lifestyle and not so much for the trails.

The comfort of this is improved as it has been upgraded from a Fresh Foam midsole to a Fresh Foam X midsole. This type of foam is lighter and is excellent for cushioning.

The cushioning aspect of Fresh Foam X is a bit more than that of Fresh Foam. However, you will not feel the ‘lack of feel’ of the controls when you are driving.

It has a jacquard mesh which makes it very breathable. The breathability of this is really good and you will not feel suffocated while wearing this shoe.

Also, when you are out delivering, this shoe will ensure that you have a stable grip on the ground and will provide you support when you are lifting and carrying things.


  • Responsive.
  • Good for all-day-wearing.
  • Prevents blisters.
  • Well-cushioned.
  • Stylish.


  • Not good on muddy terrains or sandy paths.

New Balance Fresh Foam X Vongo is good for delivery drivers. It is an even-shaped shoe when it comes to the midsole.

The cushioning of Fresh Foam X is very thick. It is plush and absorbs shocks very easily.

When you are driving for delivery, there are a couple of things that are required. Firstly, you should be able to get a feel of the controls of your vehicles.

The sole of the shoe should not skid even on the controls of the vehicle. This happens when you have a hard outsole that is not grippy.

Also, since you will be picking up things that may or may not be heavy, your shoes must work and have good cushioning to take some of the load off you.

Not only that, it should provide you with a stable platform to walk on.

Fresh Foam X Vongo takes care of all these factors. It has a very stable midsole and is not wobbly. Also, the sole is not stiff and will provide you with decent adaptability with each step.

The grip of Fresh Foam X Vongo is also excellent. It provides you with a good grip on the controls of the vehicle, plus while you are walking, out for delivery. It has a good grip on asphalt, cobblestone, concrete, etc.

However, this show will not perform well on muddy terrains or on sands.

The cushioning aspect of Fresh Foam X is excellent. It provides you with a soft plush feel while simultaneously providing great shock absorption.

Also, if you are not driving a truck and do your deliveries using a two-wheeler, maybe a bike or a scooter, or even a moped bike, these shoes are great. They will bend on the controls as required or will firmly grip the ground when you put your feet down for extra balance. 

Overall, Fresh Foam X Vongo is a stable and comfortable shoe for anyone who needs to drive around and do delivery.


  • Lightweight.
  • Stylish.
  • Excellent grip.
  • Good shock-absorption.


  • The toe-box feels snugger than the previous version.


If you mostly do shorter deliveries or work for it as a part-timer, then you may not need that huge cushioning of the shoes mentioned above.

Although the cushioning of Asics Gel Quantum 180 is not less it is not as high as Vongo, 1080, or Glycerin.

It will provide you with excellent cushioning and a firm grip on the ground and the foot controls. It is anti-skid by nature, which is essential when you are out on deliveries.

It will provide you with good cushioning and shock absorption. Also, it is good for walking around as it has both forward and lateral support.

However, it is a proper urban or city shoe and it is great on surfaces like asphalt, cobble roads, and concrete.

You may not find it so grippy although workable on the grass surface. Although it will not skid on grass, however, the grip is not as high as on the surfaces mentioned above.

Also, on muddy or sandy roads this shoe will not provide you with a good grip. In short, if you are vising any house for delivery that has a trail-ish path or area you have to cross, this shoe may not be the best fit.

For such roads, the outsole of the shoe is too much smooth and will not grip the ground that well. This may result in rocks or stones shifting under your steps and you need to be a bit more careful with your delivery.

Otherwise, this is a lightweight shoe, that will be less costly on your pcoket.


  • Shock absorbing.
  • Good for short distances.
  • Stylish.
  • Lightweight cushioning.


  • Not good on grasses or sand.

Asics Novablast 2

If you are looking for something that has excellent cushioning and is yet stylish, Asics Novablast can be a good choice.

It will provide you with good shock absorption and will provide support to the load you are carrying.

Since it is a road running shoe, it has a smoother outsole. You will be able to feel the foot controls of the vehicle easily.

Also, it has a good amount of space in the toe box. It will not restrict your foot for toe-splay.

This is one of the most stylish shoes on the market today. The heel area has excellent cushioning and laser cuts for that edgy look.

Also, the heel area has maximal cushioning and will protect your heel and feet by providing excellent cushioning.


  • Very comfortable.
  • Edgy look.
  • Can work on multiple surfaces.


  • Expensive.

Topo Athletic also makes good trail running shoes. These shoes you can use easily as a delivery driver of the technical trails.

These shoes are good if you are delivering the remote areas and need to cross trails by foot.

Having a trail running shoe while driving will not make much of a difference. However, they will make all the difference when you pick up the parcel from your truck or the two-wheeler and walk up the rocky trails.

If you are wearing a shoe that is not that good or may be meant for smoother roads, then you will constantly feel unstable or about to slip.

However, with Topo Athletic Terraventure you will not have to deal with all these problems. The lug sizes of the Terraventure are long enough to penetrate the soft ground and provide you with a very stable step.

Also, it will protect your feet from the stones that may jump up due to pressure.

If you are working in a area where you have to deal with trails, this may be a good choice for you.


  • Good for longer distances.
  • Rounded shoe tip.
  • Good arch support.


  • Heavy.


Not that all delivery drivers will be working in the city. There are many who work in the hilly regions or on the trails.

If you are delivering essential commodities into the remotest of areas, you may have to work in extreme conditions like snow or heavy rain.

In such conditions, you would need a shoe that will work great on the trails and is waterproof.

La Sportiva Bushido II is a good shoe for this. It is great for long or short distances and is excellent with shock absorptions and cushioning.

Also, since it is a trail running shoe, it will provide you with excellent grip and safety for your foot on the trails.

This shoe also has a GTX or Gore-Tex version. If you are someone who works in a rainy or snowy region, then this version of Bushido will be suitable for you.

Although it has big lugs for providing you with stability, this will not hamper the feel of the foot controls. You will be able to feel the foot controls with ease and will be able to control them easily.

The toe-box has a decent width. Your toes will have enough room for toe-splay while you are pushing down the foot controls.

While walking also, this additional toe space will help you to remain comfortable and not feel cramped.

However, although the ventilation of the normal version is still ok, the ventilation of the GTX version is not great. You may feel sweaty while wearing this shoe.


  • Great for technical trails.
  • A good amount of cushioning.
  • Prominent lugs for a more grippy feel.


  • Ventilation is not that good.


What are the best running shoes for Amazon or UPS delivery drivers?

A running shoe that has good cushioning, spacious toe-box, and good outsole grip is best for Amazon or UPS drivers.

Although there is not much of a difference in the shoe that you will be using for any kind of delivery…however if you are delivering something which is heavy a maximal cushioning shoe is good.

Also, the grip of the shoe needs to be good. If you have a shoe that doesn’t have a good grip, you are bound to trip and fall.

That is not good for your body nor is it good for your business. So, when you are selecting a running shoe for doing deliveries be it UPS or Amazon or anything else, make sure you are checking the grip and cushioning.
