This goes along with the maul swinging technique thread. I find that after a few hours of splitting wood (ax and also maul and wedges), my right elbow is pretty sore. It stays sore for a day or two. I'm 52, and after years of computer keyboard and piano work my joints are pretty shot anyway, but I was wondering if I can improve this by changing my technique. What are your experiences with soreness vs. swinging technique?
