snap crackle pop
When I do DB bench presses my right shoulder pops on every down motion. It's not painful or anything but it does pop pretty hard. Any idea what makes it do that and how I could make it stop?

If it doesn't hurt then you don't have anything to worry about. Try stretching before you begin. Take 60 lb dumbbells on the flat bench, and let them fall chest level. Take a deep breath in and push your sternum out. Also make sure after the stretching that you do 3-4 warmup sets. If the popping still doesn't go away, it's about personal preference. I mean if it distracts you enough to where you can't concentrate then maybe you should use the hammer strength machines for a while.

yeah if it doesn't hurt then don't worry about it too much. just keep an eye on it. stretching it out more and maybe starting with one more warm up set could help... it could be that one of your ligaments is not holding you in tight enough.. I would also take some joint supplements just incase you go from snap crackle pop to grind pain and cry. :( . the supplements are Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM .. and you can get them at GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and even CVS.. here's one link from BN

and this is another little site I came across that is good for looking up any type of mineral, vitamin and chemical.. it's one of my favs. :cool:
