When I do OHS even with just a 45# Oly bar I get a numbness in my thumbs. When I perform the exercise with additional weight the numbness will expand from my thumbs up to just below my elbow. The numbness stays for a couple of days and then disapates. While doing the OHS during the CFWU when I use a closer grip and only a 15# bar it seems to be ok, but I wanted to know if this was more a hand spacing issue and when my hands are wide my wrists are at to severe and angle or maybe this is being caused by something in the shoulder area by pinching a particular nerve. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks ... Mike

No need to comment on this. I am new to the discussion boards and could not find a valid search and did not want to manually go through all the archives. I have since found the search and have found numerous posts addressing this very same issue. Sorry for posting a repeat. Thanks ... Mike
