Default Re: Very slight pain and discomfort in shoulder while benching

I do chin-ups and upright rows (I am aware this exercise can be dangerous - I only lift to nipple level, maybe a tad lower even, to keep it safe). I find bent-over rows uncomfortable for my back, so I avoid them. Aside from them, deadlifts, but I doubt they're relevant.

Looking a few things up, I'm wondering if it's to do with my elbow positioning. With the close grip I'm forced into, I think my elbows might be at an awkward angle wider than my hands and shoulders.
