I've been doing the Recon Ron pullups program for about 4 wks now. Unfortunately, I seem to be developing some shoulder impingement, probably due to a lack of balance in my training. I'm going to take time off from the pullups and add vertical pushing movements to help restore balance to the shoulder area. Does this make sense?

As well, can I do vertical hangs for time with arms flexed (i.e. in the "upper" position of a pullup) without aggravating my shoulder condition? The problem seems to be felt at the bottom of the pullup, not the top. I'd like not to lose too much on my pullups, and I think vertical hangs might help.

Thanks for any advice.
