More predictable / control over arm movements?

Hey guys,

I have my character rigged so that the arms usually bend inwards. However, sometimes I need them to bend outwards to do certain gestures so I rigged a replacement arm (when I press 'g') to do this.

See the second half of this video for how weird it looks when I accidentally do a gesture which causes the elbow to go inwards. Is there a way I can control how much movement the elbow has? I've tried adding a dangle point and setting gravity to go to the left etc, but the elbow still keeps going the wrong way meaning I need to start again!
