I want to know where is the problem, is it stretch/mobility issue, or is it from muscle strenght, and if it is, what muscle specifically, is it traps, lats, rear delts, or all of them in some degree?hold contracted chin up

  • @ThomasMarkov not during pull ups. But after back workouts I sometimes feel some discomfort in right upper back, I wouldn't call that pain, rather some kind of tension or tightness, especially when i lean my head back or retract my right scapula. Dec 8, 2022 at 7:12

It could very likely be a spinal alignment issue.

I get occasional adjustments at the chiropractor. Often when I get an adjustment, they will find that one leg is longer than the other. After the adjustment, they are even.

I suspect something like this could be the issue. If you can get in to see a chiropractor, they can determine if your spine has kinks. Typically, these are simple to resolve.
