Compensate

So my right elbow still is pretty fragile and painful if I ask it to do hinge type tricep movements.  Today I compensated for it by making sure any tricep exercise I did involved two arms at once.  This way I was able to compensate somewhat with my left arm to take some stress off the right.  Of course long term this is not an ideal situation and will cause strength imbalances but for now it is a way I can at least work the muscle group.
