Programming Pull-ups after injury

So I tore the tendon that attaches my pec and shoulder on my left side in February of last year doing bar MU's. I opted not to have it surgically fixed as it was a time sensitive surgery and my wife was pregnant at the time. No way for me to help with a 4 yr old and a newborn with an immobilized arm. Since then I have pretty much gotten back to being able to do most everything. The one exception is pull ups. Especially butterfly. My shoulder gets fatigued quick and I loose rhythm.

Looking for some ideas on programming extra work on pull-ups and C2B to help endurance and strength then butterfly as I enjoy competing. Currently when competing my partners get stuck with pull-ups!

Thanks in advance.

Re: Programming Pull-ups after injury

I would start with pulldowns and use a version of my PML I referenced in the other thread.
