    Hi there

    Im not a grunter. More exasperated and breathless. anyway if you grunt you wont be clenching your jaw - bad cos it invokes stress and stress creates cortisol the naughty hormone for fat storing. Id grunt away if I were you...

    For your tricep, possible nerve issues. My pilates teacher takes us thru nerve as well as muscle stretches - they seems simple and dont really stretch as such but help glide along their tunnel. Check youtube for medial, ulnar and radial nerve stretches like this -

    or

    as for the trapped nerve, its happening every time, it dosent happen though if i lower my weights but to do that i have to make them below the warmup weight :S
