This is a discussion about

Radical in Certain Body Terms

What does the radical 月 in terms such as chest 胸, arm 腕, and elbow 肘 mean?

As you see on the page, the Radical for 肘 is given as "meat 肉 (⺼)". Number 130 on this list: http://www.imabi.net/the214bushu.htm

Personally I think "meat" is easy to remember for terms like "chest", "arm" or "elbow".
