    For myself this is exactly what I was thinking as well...


  2. Indeed indeed indeed.

  3. Try doinf more upper back excercises. That should pull / tighten your back/rear delts muscles back, rolling your shoulders back.

    I had a friend with the same problem,.. he was a big guy and worked out and such,... I think I remember him saying it was something about the joints, like how the shoulder socket sat.
    Anyways, I think though sine thheu have the ability to be straight, that hitten more of the upper back muscles with some heavy weith might help eventually

    What I was tring to say (sorry, Im not feeling so good- kinda in the middle of a high fever) is that when you hold weights, it makes your arms go "normal". And, if your arms hang turned in some, then it could be helped by strengthing the opposing muscles. I really dont think its your tricepts as much as your rear delts and back.
    Of course, it just depends on whats "different" about you.
    It could be shortened tendons, joint situation, ... whatever is the casue.
    The way you described it, it was like your lats were to huge,.. kinda keeping your arms to the side some, and slightly turned in (I just imagin like someone had a hugely over developed chest that pulled his shoulders forward or something :P )
    Anyways, I was just throwing the possibility that some upper back training (an emphasis on..) could help, should that be the / or part of the problem.
    Perhaps some streatching should it be shortened tendons attached to the bicept.
    Personlally, from the picture you put up it isn't that noticeable to me.

  6. Its not that my arms stick out to the side because I have big lats, ( because I don't ) , I think it is either a tendon problem, or maybe my triceps need more work. Its like I said, My arms are bent in the shape of a boomarang. Does not effect me in anyway, just a cosmetic thing that friends and other notice and then they like to give me a hard time about it.. Its no biggie. But I am more aware of it now.

  7. It's possible that your bones have formed differently, or your muscles are very tight, you could try deep tissue massage. Tell me can you swing from trees with your feets? LMAO Sorry bro i couldn't resist.

  8. Jayhawk lay off the Mortal Kombat, lol.

  15. Thats what I was talking about.. Can swing like a monkey from it with me feet..

  16. SCORPION WINS! FATALITY! lol

  17. it is most definately something with your genetic composition... my arms hang exactly as your do, slightly bent and turned inward. they have always been this way. i have a very balanced upper body. and while my lats do flare out my arms out slightly, i have had this charactaristic even before i began weight training six years ago. you are a perfectly normal dude(as far as i can tell) so stop trippin. im sure you can find a real problem in your life besides your monkey arms man....
