Working hard! And pushing hard. Is it me or do you have a little bend wanting to come up when you go to HS? How does it feel?

I think it’s a mic between tightness and a nerve issue I have. I can see it now looking  into it, maybe flexibility too?. 

 

Anyway I try to keep them as straight as possible! And nicely spotted ;)

I can see you are pushing and straightening. It just comes and goes. I feel this on my left arm every so often. It could be tightness. Have you tried a narrower hand width just to see how it feels? The other thing coming to mind (because I have that problem) is activating not only elevation but also external rotation. When I do rotate, my elbows pits will face a bit more forward and I feel a little bit of protraction / like I'm punched in the chest, ribs will come in. But I have a hard time activating and maintaining that rotation on the left. So my left will rotate in / out , and/or try to bend to get out of it, da little bugger :D

I have to

nerd it a bit more. It might be as simple as a bad habit. Need to solve this mystery

The cue for external rotation is excellent! It can't really be a flexibility thing since you can have your shoulders completely closed (e.g contortion handstand) and yet have straight arms. That's a separate thing. :)
