Comments: I have also felt a lot of pinching with these pads and I don't have beefy arms. My experience is the same as the above.
I have fallen on these pads HARD and felt they offered great protection. Just wish they didn't pinch me all the time.

Comments: I felt a lot of pinching against my skin with these pads. I have fairly beefy arms, but whenever I flex my arms inward the Open areas that are "supposed" to give more flex actually come together and pinch my skin and muscle on the sides of my arms.
