    I read on the SS forums that a lot of guys with smaller arms ran into this same issue.
    Yeah, I'm one of them. Keep those elbows up and the upper back tight from the moment you get under the bar to the moment you put it back down. It's easier said than done. Have someone help remind you if you can. As Mark Rippetoe said, "Poor technique in the gym is caused by insufficient yelling"

      Hahaha...do you think doing bicep curls (in the squat rack of course) would help strengthen those tendons?

        They make me feel better after failing to keep my elbows up, but aren't a substitute for proper form on squats.
