Hey Joe, love the new section!
I wanted to find out at the top of a bicep movement (shortened state) when I’m in maximum contraction then my arms from elbow down seems to go numb/lack of blood flow. Not sure if it’s normal but how do I overcome such a problem? A similar problem happens at the bottom of a front squat, for an instant I feel like blood flow to my legs below the knee is cut off. Appreciate the help in advance!
The “numbness/restricted blood flow” feeling can actually be indicative of just what the name implies. Potential nerve or circulation issues. And depending on severity, you may want to get them checked out. (The biceps example to me, seems like no big deal, and a feeling that can be associated with training that muscles length, but the quad example doesn’t make sense for any “muscle reasons”). So actually a bit out of my scope to say why it’s happening.
