I’m not sure if I can keep using that Chris Duffin squat technique. 😦

So I started having pain in my elbows and biceps latter half of last week. Today while squatting, I again focused on working on the Chris Duffin techniques and cues I started looking at last week. And it didn’t take long before my elbows and biceps started hurting in the same way. I think the intense isometric hold is stressing my elbows and biceps too much.


That sucks.

I’m not sure. Going to keep playing with things. I tried during the work sets to just have the torso technique and not the arms, but they really go together to make the upper body so tight and solid. So, I don’t know. I’ll keep at it and see where it goes, but certainly if it’s going to damage my elbows and limit me on everything else, that’s not going to work.

Otherwise, keeping things at 50% capacity per the “deload” I’m doing this week.
