Hi, Ive been training and doing some muscle ups recently.When i trained to get to the muscle up i always noticed a bit of discomfort on the negative part of the muscle up, on the inner part of my arm right between my bicep and forearm (opposite to my elbow bone), the discomfort occurs on the negative part right when my body goes below the bar again and i hang.. the pain usually lasts for a few mins and then dissapears but this can sometimes ruin my training sessions.. maybe my muscles still have to get used to this kind of movement, since i havent been into calisthenics for very long? maybe theres something wrong with my technique?? maybe its a tendon being stressed with an unproper arm position? any help would be appreciated.

Yes it could be a technique issue.
Have someone watch and/or get video taped doing it so you know exactly what is happening.
I would recommend Carl Paoli’s videos on the GWOD. He has great technique and transition videos up that have help many people solve problems with the muscle up.
