Default Elbow not tracking properly


A female training partner of mine (not a very experienced trainee) is having some trouble with pulling movements. She has progressed well with squatting, deadlifts, and pressing, but she has has trouble with rowing movements because, as she describes it, her elbow is "catching" or "not tracking properly."

It happens when she performs dumbbell rows and during band-assisted pull-ups. It seems like the "catching" occurs during the eccentric phase of the movement.

Does anybody have any experience with something like this? Any idea what the cause of the feeling is? Any advice on what types of exercises are good to stabilize the elbow joint?

Thanks in advance.
