Tennis Elbow: The Right Way to Lift
Avoid Tennis Elbow Pain
Lifting a briefcase, purse, or toolbox, in the palm-up position relieves stress on the tendons that are irritated in patients with tennis elbow.

This can be compared to lifting in the palm-down hand position that does tend to stress the tendons irritated in patients with tennis elbow. Unfortunately, most patients naturally lift these types of objects in the palm-down position, and therefore contribute to the chronic irritation seen in tennis elbow.
