🚨PULL UPS AND SHOULDER PAIN
✅ This is one of my most frequently asked questions so there y’all have it.
At this point you should be able to figure out why your shoulders hurt during certain movements, and the cause is: internal rotation of the shoulders, under load, over time.
When we try pull ups or pull downs or chin ups, the number ONE thing we need to do (both for safety and back development) is to LOCK those scapulas down and back. It’s the most important thing you need to remember, if you want to develop those wings because that’s actually “how” you engage your back muscles.
If you don’t, asides from not making back gains, you might end up getting shoulder impingement. Don’t be the guy on the right.
