List of things that cause elbow pain for weightlifters:
- Barbell not spinning
- Tight shoulders. In the snatch for example, you can still be in good position, but your humerus is internally rotating, when the bar in your hands is forcing external rotation. The torsion is felt in the elbow. A similar issue can happen in the front rack position for the Clean and Jerk.
- Poor rhythm causing the bar to crash on you in the catch of the snatch.
- Poor catch position
