I wonder if it is a Bicep thing? I was at the gym earlier and I decided to do high rep low volume bicep routine. I got a pretty big pump in my biceps and I noticed in the mirror my arms were at the same angle as yours (they usually stay straight).

I think that was probably because your muscle was pumped. It was involuntarily contracting, which was pulling your forearm towards your shoulder. Heh, then again I could be wrong.

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.

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.

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.

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.
