How do I keep my elbows down while squatting?

Where should my arms be when squatting?

If you’re familiar with the squat press, begin adding weight to get big arms! Place the bar right below your neck (so it’s resting on the upper part of your back.) Your hands should rest just outside of your shoulders, and your legs should be a bit wider than ‘shoulder width’ apart.

What is elbow tendonitis?

Does squatting make your arms bigger?

Deadlifts and squats are primarily lower body exercises and will not increase the size of your arms.

But this amount of work is not sufficient enough to build muscle.
