Shoulder pain during Pull Ups

OK first post, I've been lurking for a bit.

OK , so I screwed up and did a couple of Muscle ups on a cold shoulder(no streching). Ever since I have had slight pain while doing pull ups/chin ups. The pain shoots down my bicep as well.

I took about a week off, lots of icing and motrin. Tried to do some Pull ups today had a little bit of pain not to bad though.

I'm guessing more time off from pull ups and continue icing/motrin.

Also would like to add, I have no pain from doing dips/presses. Its just the pull up motion that gives me problems. So frustrating to not be able to do pull ups.

What do you guys recommend?

Re: Shoulder pain during Pull Ups

Loosen up the muscles on the anterior aspect of your affected arm and shoulder. Self massage... cross friction or myofascial or deep pressure

Deltoids, Pecs, biceps... some subclavius and also scalenes may help as well.
