I also really focus on squeezing my shoulder blades together, tightening my lats, and taking a big breath of air into my stomach (chest puffed out). It seems like the more upright I am, the stronger the strain on the elbows.
I had squat pain for a number of years. I now use a very wide grip and no pain.
