Elbow talk

I went looking on the net for info on my elbows today, because mine have caught my attention.  I took a large-ish patch of skin off of each when practicing my elbow hits on the dummy in the workout room.  He looked none the worse for the wear, but I’m whining every other move I make.

Elbows get a mention or two on fast facts, and there were lots of sites with info on tennis elbow, plus a few helping the folks with archers elbow.

I never did find the facts I wanted, such as: How many times a day does the average person use their elbow joint, how sensitive is the skin on the elbow, and where does the name ‘elbow’ come from?
