A) Do you feel upright rows are bad for the shoulder/RC

Yes, if done narrow grip, and pulled to chin. Instead, do them shoulder width grip or wider, and only pull till upper arms are parallel to the ground.


B) DO you feel laterals are bad for the shoulder/RC

Can be. It's about execution of the movement. Don't go higher than your shoulder socket, and don't go max weight. Smooth and steady, and leave you ego on the rack.

C) Do you perform any exercises to strengthen the RC?

Yes. As part of my warmup I do arm rotations, and light dumbell (8lbs) rear laterals.

Anybody feel ultra wide grip chins are bad?
