You’ll want to check your front rack, press, and overhead positions to make sure you’re not compensating at the elbow for any mobility limitations during your workouts.

You’ll still want to be as active as possible but that may require some activity modification. Doesn’t mean to stop but just modify so as not to flare up the area even more. However, that area around the elbow will need to be loaded as part of the rehab process, but the key is to slowly progress how much you load this region. Start light weights to build up capacity. If you immediately start with heavy heavy resistance it will not be effective. Eccentrics have shown to be effective for tendon issues. Start out with exercises such as french press, tricep kick backs, or bandy tricep extensions.

Here is a great finisher as well with the vodoo bands addressing closing down the elbow and rotation around the elbow. Definitely worth a try.
