What Brent said.

I tend to agree with the POV that often tendonitis issues stem from a biomechanical issue. High-rep, poorly done pull-ups can exacerbate it. Take a look at the CFJ for Tucker's series (sorry can't link from where I am) on kipping pull-ups...he has tips to avoid shoulder and elbow issues. Also check out Kstar's shoulder and neck mobility vids. His angle is that the arm is basically the upper body "leg" and the elbow is the "knee"...upstream and downstream problems can manifest in the elbow.
