    I imagine Joe has addressed this before but I have not been able to find where so I thought I’d ask here. I apologize if this is “old stuff”.

    On pull ups, what are the considerations when it comes to the bottom ROM when the lats are in a fully lengthened position? Main concern/question is with scapular elevation. From Joe’s videos, it appears (to me at least) that he goes to a full stretch (all the way to the bottom) but does not spend a lot of time there nor does he let the scapula disengage and elevate. My second question/concern is injury risk. I have a client who says he hurt his rotator cuff from doing weighted pull ups when going to a full stretch at the bottom. I am inclined to think that this is not super risky as long as the eccentric is slow and controlled but still wanted to hear what a more experienced athlete/trainer thinks about it. Thanks!
