Alternatives to Squat Cleans

I'm trying to work around tendinitis in my right arm - outside (not inside), hurts when gripping bars, handshaking etc. I can do pushups, handstands etc but the cleans, presses, pull-ups - no-way. Does anyone have possible suggestions on what exercises I might substitute for today's squat cleans that don't involve gripping and/or hanging onto a bar? Thanks for any advice.

Clarify "outside" please. Assume anatomical position -- arms straight down at your sides, palms facing forward. In this position is the pain in the outside or the inside of your arms, and at what point?

Re: Alternatives to Squat Cleans

Otto, thanks for responding;

Assuming the anatomical position, the pain is located on the outside and back of the forearm, in the hollow of the elbow. Hopefully, this is helpful. This injury seems to be tendinitis based on my experiences from 20 years of climbing; I'm hoping to find possible substitutes that are similar to the "posted" exercises so that can continue the training while resting the arm. Again, thanks for any advice.
