I doubt doing jumping pull-ups would cause this unless you have preexisting condition

Matt Swift from CF Brisbane had a confirmed case of clinical rhabdo in one of his clients from resisting the negative in jumping pull-ups
We've had two people on the Brand X forum develop clinical rhabdo from resisting the negative in jumping pull-ups and for that reason we you no longer see jumping pull-ups prescribed as a sub for pull-ups in the Brand X scaled WODs.
