Elbow pain from DB Thrusters?

Has anyone experienced unusual elbow pain from doing thrusters w/ DB's?
I did a FRAN on Saturday using 2x35# DBs. The head of the DB comes as low as my shoulders, so I'm wondering if that extreme flexion is the problem. I don't ordinarily have elbow issues.

Re: Elbow pain from DB Thrusters?

Could be overuse/tendonitis or high stress on the elbows. People often have problems with their elbows if they've used them intensely for a while -- high rep pullups, pushups, overhead presses, etc. as well as working high stress elbow movements like muscle ups. Anything like that sound familiar?

Re: Elbow pain from DB Thrusters?

While I have done a lot pull-ups in the past (and currently), I've never experienced this sensation in both elbows. I pretty much feel it a day or two after thrusters, even w/ Jackie using just the bar.

I'm wondering if it b/c I'm not using my legs enough to begin the "thrust" and my arms and shoulders are bearing the more burden...

it could just be the combination, which sees quite a bit of elbow flexion under load.
