Elbow injury after muscle up

I did a few failed muscle ups today and when the WOD started, I could not finish because I had a pain in my elbow that went up to around my triceps. My arm then felt a bit weak and shaky. My arm feels fine now (1.5 hours later), but this happens almost every time I try muscle ups. Has anyone had experience with this?

Where is the pain?
Google marked pic?
Better description?
Any other exercises that hurt?

Re: Elbow injury after muscle up

Its just a form issue. Keep the elbows tucked in tight directly infront of you and close to the body when doing the transition into the dip. I take it that is where you are failing? If you let them flair out this puts too much strain on the outer elbow area.

I would recommend practicing perfect form, elbows in close. Dont go to total fatigue until you have your form spot on.

Even with perfect form there's a lot of stress on the elbow.

He coudl have perfect form and there's a problem still
