Clean & Press: Elbow Pain


hi everyone, i've hurt my elbow when i do hang clean & press....the pain is outside my right elbow, extend to the top of my forearm extensors...

i want to lose fat now, but training heavy may make my elbow worse....so any suggestion for exercise selection? which upper body ex. i should do/avoid?

thanks for help.


Fat loss is 95% diet. Does your elbow pain prohibit you from squating and deadlifting?


I've no problem squating, but i'm not sure it affecting my deadlift...

i can't do reverse curl, hammer curl, bent rows with overhand grip..etc. and i can't do power cleans or any olympic lifting.

even when i do flat dumbbell press, my elbow shaking alot...very unstable..
