About 6 weeks ago, I was doing heavy cleans from the blocks. On the last, my knee lined up with my elbow and forearm, catching the weight and forcing my hand to bend backward. I can use it day to day, but when trying out lifting again a couple of weeks later my finger tips went numb and stayed that way. I have taken another couple of weeks off after 2 weeks back at the gym. Only the end of my thumb still feels some numbness. When I catch something or turn it enough the pain goes through the bottom of my palm through the webbing between my thumb and forefinger in a semicircle.
Any ideas to strengthen or reduce my time away from lifting?
