My last meet prep, and coming into this one after squatting my shoulders and biceps get a serious case of tendonitis. I squat in gear and carry the bar relatively low with my index finger just outside the rings. Ive noticed it more as i’ve gotten heavier in body weight and as the bar weight has gotten heavier. i’ve been doing a ton of mobility work but still has not affect. would you advise bringing my hands out closer to the collars? Or is it just something that comes with the territory and keep icing?
The lats locked in and pulled down is the main purpose of the elbows pulled down. Hand grip width won’t make or break you unless you force your hands in and your get tendonitis then you have a real problem when it becomes chronic.
I keep my hands near the collars but make sure you maintain the lifters wedge, which is most important. Chest and chin up, rhomboids squeezed and shoulders in an anti-shrug position.
I cover this a great deal in the second edition of 10/20 but you should def pick up ulimate back fitness and performance because this covers what you ask top to bottom.
