When I do that pose, only on my right tricep, I feel a lot of pain in my medial head of tricep brachii area so cant do that pose at all or for long because it feels like too much weight/pressure being applied on it. And I cant figure out why… I’m only like 120#s, but I am also very new to doing this pose. Before I would just do plough because I could without problem (with the full on shoulder stance I always felt wobbly and incapable of doing it without falling out of the pose) and now it’s more of a pain reason why I cant. And I haven’t done anything to injure my arm so I’m stumped as to why I’m having this problem. Maybe my posture and form isn’t completely proper when doing the pose though. It’s hard to know, I don’t have any yoga mentors who could tell me if I am or not.
Thanks, Kim Maertz
Kim – try sending me a photo. of what’s going on. I would also play around with other poses where your arms are engaged (like low plank and dolphin pose), and notice if you are putting more pressure in your right side. Pay attention to your body and you can learn from it. 🙂
