    Squatting Pain Between Bicep and Tricep

    A few days ago, I was squatting with what I now understand is incorrect form. My wrists were turned under the bar (with thumb around the bar grip), elbows downward, and arms compressed in a way that put a lot of weight and stress on elbows, wrists, etc. Started feeling a dull but localized pain in between bicep and tricep (what I believe is the brachialis muscle) right after first set.

    After the workout, I did a a lot of research into proper form, grip, positioning, etc. and bought the SS book to read the chapter on squats. Today, 2 days later, I tried applying what I had learned. I put my thumb over the bar, wrists turned up as to not allow my wrists/arms to bear the weight, shoulders back, and chest out, all with the bar in what I believe was proper low-bar position. Yet, after the first set, I had the exact same dull pain in the brachialis of my right arm, about 3 or 4 inches above the elbow. To confirm, I did a hammer curl-type motion, and the pain was right inside the muscle contracts during the hammer curl motion.

    At first I was afraid that, despite all the tweaks to my grip and technique, that it was causing the same issue. But I'm thinking that maybe I just didn't give it enough time to heal, and ANY squat today would have caused pain there at this point (meaning that, once it heals fully, I can go back to applying the new SS-based style of squats without any further brachialis pain). I really hope its the latter.

    Try tucking your pinky funger under the bar. Hopefully this helps some.

    Pinky under the bar? I'm curious how that would change the angle/feel. Will definitely give it a try. Since I just began SS, I'd imagine that now is the time to experiment and adjust, while the weight is still low enough that I can run through all the mental notes in my head. But on the other hand, now is the time when I have to make sure I can do this consistently without hurting myself. So maybe it would be smart for me to skip Friday's squatting, and give my brachialis from now until next Monday to heal, since I suspect that any squatting at all, regardless of grip, will just irritate the prexisting injury.
