I do elbows in the centre too. From what I've read, people with longer arms might want to pull it further up and vice versa for the barrel chested.

My elbows go in the middle. I have T-Rex arms if that helps.

I would prefer it higher but my upper arms are MASSIVE! Therefore rendering any attempt at pulling it higher futile.

Don't they go by the measurement of the forearm? I'm confused now, because if some use it higher wouldn't you have to consider the lower bicep circumference as well and not just the forearm?

I don't remember Babs. I was just giving him crap for the halibut.

Mine doesn't go over my arms all the way either.
