Is it normal that skull crushers would cause elbow pain? Any other triceps exercise doesn't. Is this indicative of bad form or is it normal?

I never had elbow pain doing them. Are you using a straight BB?A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed
We don't rise to the occasion, we fall to our level of training.

I do get pain from straight bar skull crushers. I either do DB skull crushers performed with a hammer grip or use an ez-curl bar. Also, try doing them inclined. If the pain still persists, maybe try a different movement for a while, something like close-grip presses, floor pressing, or high board pressing.http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=165762691&p=1326599401#post1326599401

Iím guilty of that sh*t too, waiting for somebody to powder my nuts cuz I did 20 reps of whatever the **** on the bench. Big f*king deal. It is all relative." G Diesel
