I did deadlifts today, after taking a week of recovery. I didnt go very heavy, maybe 80%, but noticed a weird “pain” in my right bicep. It wasn’t severe, but was something new. It didn’t stop me from completing the workout and actually went away mostly as the workout went on.
My question is, that i remember reading in the deadlift thread that a common error during deadlifts, is to have “taut” elbows. Im not completely clear on this, but im assuming you want to have your arms just hanging. I never had a problem with this, but maybe its because ive been doing snatch lately instead of deadlifts, and am subconsciously contracting my biceps.
Any suggestions on how to avoid this? Could i just contract my triceps a bit?
