The form is incorrect and the OHS is weak due to the shoulder decrease ROM and the pain caused by it. Also my right wrist has limited ROM which makes front squat and thrusters painful. The shouder feels restricted in the joint. Massage and acupuncture does help but it has not gone away.

Re: Looking for evidence that kipping pullups do or do not cause shoulder injuries.

I know this is an old thread and I don't mean to beat a dead horse but this is a very interesting topic for me. I gave my best effort to look into the literature and find some ways that kipping pullups may be causing injuries and how to fix them.
