    Bicep pain during squats?

    Seems to only come on heavier sets, Is this a sign that I am squeezing the bar too hard or something else?

    I've only been squatting 3 months on a regular basis and it does not seem to happen everytime

    IME it happens when my grip is too narrow. Not necessarily anything with my grip strength. Maybe try moving your hands to a different spot on the bar.

    Also, you over on AA? I'm a lurker over there lol, and you look familiar.

    I would get elbow pain and bicep pain if I wrapped my thumbs around the bar, I stopped doing that and all elbow and bicep pain went away.

    A lot of guys don't wrap the pinky around the bar and that releives pressure on the arms too.

    I have outer bicep pain but that is due to a partial ruptured bicep tendon. Let's hope you don't have that.
    Good Luck!

    Try a wider grip.

    Also, for some reason, once I started doing heavy hammer curls, I've been pain free.

    Mine are killing me right now. I have been having some pain but it would subside after a few minutes. Mine started on bench of all things or at least thats when i first noticed it last week. I noticed both biceps were throbbing and a dull ache through out the whole arm.

    Today i squatted which i did yesterday too (messing with the Boz way of training) After a couple sets they were hurting good. I switched from carrying across the rear delts to high bar and it helped a little. Did 3 more sets and was done. It took me 10 minutes to unload the weight because of the pain.

    I could barely drive home. It has been 30min and they are still hurting. I've had tendinitis in the elbows before but in all my years lifting they have never throbbed like this. I took an 800 ibuprofen so hopefully that will help.

    you might be low barring it too much. i used to have the bar WAY down my back (im dumb like that) and as a result my right arm would really ache during squats. i didnt even notice i was doing it till my friend pointed it out and ever since i brought the bar up my arm and shoulder are fine.

    the bar should be supported by your back, not your hands, your hands are just there to hold it in place. proper technique is thumb on same side as fingers, and wrist flat (straight line from back of hand down your arm)

    once you get comfortable with the grip its second nature.

    this.

    Holding the bar too low and supporting the weight with your arms can cause pain+ having too narrow of a grip. Look at how Rippetoe's trainees at his gym hold the bar. Basically just have their arms loose over the top. The bar should be resting on your rear delts for a low bar and be totally supported on the delts.
