I think it would also place the shoulders in an internally rotated and weak position as well, because a huge amount of elbow injuries are caused by shoulder issues. A professional player could probably condition his elbow to handle the stress of a heavy 1HBH, but only if he took good care of his shoulder and maintained his shoulder girdle balance.
