this is interesting. i always had a gut feeling that kipping pullups were a huge factor in my shoulder issues, but with my limited kinesio knowledge, i figured that it had to be pressing motions causing the troubles.

i will admit that, when i was tired, i had many instances of letting my connective tissue and not so much my muscles take the brunt of the force in the bottom of the kipping pullup.

at a KB seminar several years ago, i asked steve maxwell what he thought about crossfit. he only really made 2 quick statements: he made a brief comment about the politics of it being as troublesome as the politics of the kettlebell community, and then he put a little more weight on his second statement about a lot of good athletes simultaneously ruining their shoulders and, subsequently, their potential. he was mainly referring to the kipping pullups. at the time crossfit was new and shiny to me, so i jumped in head first anyways.

that tidbit on biceps and curls is interesting. occasionally when i'm doing some rotator cuff work with dumbells at home, i'll do some curls because i feel a tight stretch in some tendon running through my anterior delt and running up my neck a bit. i don't like to stress it too much, but it feels nice to open up. would anybody recommend bicep curls as an actual shoulder stabilizing drill?

Speaking of which, I saw that you got kicked off the CF forum in just 2 posts. I saw your second post was about improving your shoulder press following starting strength, but I'm curious, what was your first post?

I still think SDHP does more damage per movement unit than kipping pullups, but since kipping pullups are performed waaaay more often in higher volume they do more overall damage.

But yeah.. what do I know

Nice work Andrew. It was a proud day for me when I was banned from the comments. I left the forum voluntarily. It seems that it's almost a right of passage to get banned from CF in one form or another.
