Default head position

tuck your head onto your chest when dipping, if you keep your head up this can cause interruption of the nerve impulses from the brachial plexus -the symptom of which is tingling in the arm elbow and hands

As someone who has experienced compression of my brachial plexus, I can tell you that tucking your chin does provide relief.

That said, if a brachial plexopathy is indeed is the problem, this is not the answer to fixing it.

Tucking your head would only help with spinal cord issues. If a nerve root is impinged in the spinal cord than tucking your head and alternating dorsiflexion will help the nerve unstick and pain will be relieved. But I need to know is this electric shock feeling happening bilaterally in both arms? Do you ever have any other sensations in the arms throughout the day?

I also need to know which part of your arm is feeling this. Look up Myotome chart for more information.

Which part of the eccentric range is this happening? Mid-range, end range? If its end range, have you tried just going to mid-range to see if the pain is being replicated? If the pain is happening at the end range, the ulnar nerve could be getting compressed when at full flexion of arm during dips but theres too many unknown variables here.
