Which exercises can be the worst for the rotator cuffs?

Do you believe that pull ups and chin ups put the rotator cuffs under a lot of stress?

Thanks for any feedback
1. I think they are smart to add in. As you get older you will see why.

2. Depends on where your imbalances are?

3. See above.

4. I prefer my puuls up / chin ups with close or neutral grip. Wide grip tends to aggravate my ****ed up shoulders.

A lot of shoulder issues can be addressed with proper mobility and range of motion. Eric Cressey is the man when it comes to this.
