Squatting / Overhead Press twinges

Hi all,
I wonder if anyone can offer some advice on some weird twinges I'm
getting around joints when performing these two exercises, and whether
there is anything I ought to be thinking, or even be worried about.

First with overhead presses, often as I push the bar up, at around the point
where my elbows come level with my nose I seem to get an odd stinging
twinging sensation in my right elbow…just on that side, and just for the first time.

I get a similar issue when squatting, though some of this is more likely my technique. I've been performing squats at the gym on a regular basis for around 3/4 months; and in that time seem to have aggravated some issue with the muscles or tendons in my right knee above the kneecap. When i'm finished squatting I occasionally get a weird dull aching sensation, but i also get it now at other random times, if i stretch my right vigorously (er….doing yoga for bad backs) for instance.

anyone had any similar issues or know whether its wise to carry on regardless?

Re: Squatting / Overhead Press twinges

Elbow twinges tend to be caused by tight triceps. Try loosening them and see how it is.

For knees, I had a similar issue on my left knee, and this video fixed it up and is also helping with some inflammation just below my patella ligament on my right knee.
