Not sure if this is an exercise or injuries post but anyway; After doing a heap of pull-ups I tend to get pretty sore around the teres major/minor, infraspinatus area rather than in the lats. Is it correct to feel it around there? Or this an indicator that I'm pulling more with my arms than my back and is that wrong? When doing my pullups, I try to retract my scapula first and then try to bring my elbows down and back. Doesn't always work like this though and I often have a hard time getting my elbows back. I'm on 12 chins and 9 pullups at the moment. Any tips/advice would be appreciated.

usually your weak link will feel it the most. i dont think you have anything to worry about if you are retracting your blades as you said you are.
most of the women i work with only feel it in thier biceps or shoulders in the beginning because they are weakest there.
