Should the hitting elbow be relatively close to your rib cage or somewhat away from it when hitting a forehand? I normally lay my wrist back and lock it and swing from the shoulder keeping my arm bent and one even flow as I come up through the ball. I am open for suggestions/tips on the swing and elbow position!

what has this to do in the Travel section?
check the Tips/Instruction on, do a search on "forehand elbow" there
there are several threads on it
