that makes sense. a lot of what i've read about keeping thumbs around on squats has to do with squeezing the bar for added tightness, but in all honesty i'm not squeezing the bar at all at such an awkward wrist angle.

Wider is fine but then you lose upper back tightness. Higher on the back is also fine, (i'm not suggesting high bar, but just a little higher), but then you lose a little leverage advantage.

It's a give and take situation. Either way some action needs to be taken to fix the issue since it will get worse if you persist.
absolutely. i'll have to play around with a few positions tomorrow night. thanks again.

I'm not sure if it's relevant to anyone else, but I switched from mixed grip deadlifts to overhand/straps today. My elbows actually feel better as a result. My right elbow (which I've been using ice spray and anti-inflammatories on all week) is suddenly almost pain free. Bizarre, but good.

My sister got it last year. She got it from painting her kitchen of all things. Her elbows were very sore for a long time. She said both just ached.

I hope to never have this. I know that it is painful and can really cause people trouble.

Do you have any imbalances in your biceps and triceps?
