I have been doing Starting Strength with my own small mods (addition of face pulls, curls, tricep pulldowns, pullups, and lateral raise). I have been having wrist and elbow pain during my squats. I think I have the hand position wrong so...I took a pic for anyone who has read/done SS or is just big into squatting's critique. It was a hurried pic, and I didnt have a rack near me as I was not at the gym, so bear with me. Thanks for the help and advice in advance.
The pain does not last, and is not an injury, but I dont think your wrists and elbows should feel strained during a leg exercise. The pain is like when you get chicken winged and as soon as the tension is off and I walk away from the squat rack it fades. Im not doing crazy amounts of weight either as the program slowly builds up, but I figured I would fix this now. Thanks again.
Dear T-Nation moderator who moved this thread the first time. This is not about an injury or rehabbing an injury and does not belong in that forum, as it has nothing to do with an injury or rehabbing one. The thread is actually about achieving a comfortable hand position during squats (training) in order that I may be able to grow my legs (bodybuilding). With respect, thanks for your patience and efforts in keeping the forums organized and clean.
