    Wide grip upright row, safe or dangerous

    Well as the title basically says, I started doing them about 2 weeks ago because i heard they work your rear dealts very well. But i also heard heard they are very bad for your shoulder joints. I've never gotten any bad pain from it except soreness in my delts. I do moderate weight 15 reps and i dont go any higher than my nipple line, and i pause at the top for 1 second and just go down controllably.

    But i'd like to hear some some opinions on what people think about this exercise.

    I have had shoulder surgery twice, and they don't both me at all. I do them on an ez-curl bar with my index fingers at the first kink, so wide but not crazy.

    Doing them closer, more traditional placement, kills my shoulders.

    wide grip upright row, is primarily a delt exercise, and isn't linked to causing shoulder problems.

    close grip upright row, is primarily a trap exercise, and is commonly linked to causing shoulder problems.

    If you can perform them pain free, you're good to go. If at some point thy cause shoulder discomfort, drop them and move on.
    No brain, no gain.

    ^^ I have very sensitive shoulders (RC issues) and the wide grip doesn't bother me much at all. As Chazzy mentioned above, close grip has been known to cause more shoulder pain compared to wide grip as in my case.

    As I learned from watching Charles Glass videos, I lean forward a bit doing them and only bring the bar up to my sternum and concentrate on pulling the elbows up. You do not have to go any higher up and correctly performed will burn like hell.

    Good luck.

    A few very good responses and i can only agree^^

    I have done these regularly for the last 8 -10 weeks and have found them to be very effective for the delts, these can develop for good width for the shoulders and they dont have to be done real heavy either. I only do lightish weight and for 12-15 reps but like i said no pain, and good development so im good to go.
