Weighted pullups have been exacerbating my back imbalance. My left side is tighter and more hypertrophied than the right; so when I strap on weight for the pullups, it puts the muscle to work to hold up the weight. Thus, it got more hypertrophied than before and started giving me some pain. Stopped doing weighted pullups for now though so I'm fine... but it's interesting how little things like these can mess with you. Gotta be careful.
