Well, if you are squeezing with everything you got and nothings happening, obviously somethings wrong. Find someone and do some practice work, adjust your position around until you find your spot, you should have pressure on one side with your arm, and on the other side with his. If its not working relax, look at what's going on, where is the pressure not getting applied and adjust yourself to tighten it. But just squeezing with all you got is not good training, its re-enforcing bad habits and could leave you both with unnecessary stiff necks the next day.
It's more about driving yourself forward and using your weight then actually squeezing, so try looking at that ;)

Anyone got any tips on finishing from guard? I got somebody in the correct RNC grip from half guard, got back to full guard, tried squeezing my elbows together and extending with my hips... no dice. With the tightness I had i'd be pretty much guaranteed a tap if i'd been on top and could move to side. Suggestions?

You got a arm trapped and he is extended, turn him over then tap him out ;)

I did actually try that, tried a butterfly hook and just turning him, didnt work so well. I'm thinking I might get some mileage out of pushing on his knees/thighs with my feet tho... any thoughts?
