    Exclamation rotator cuff popping no pain

    The popping just started and its very minimal its just when i twist my arms. Im pretty sure its because of lifting as heavy on preacher curl with dumbbell as i can. Also when i bring the weight down on the sholder press machine i hear a small crack on my rotator cuff.

    and after i started doing pull ups it made the cracks worse. I want to know if i should start doing RC exercises. The popping isn't to bad but i want to prevent more injury. Should i start taking joint supplements? This is pretty urgent since it's sholders and legs day. (i've already rested for 3 days too)

    Sorry for making you read alot but after reading from other people on the fourm had to go do mri and go to doctors **** got serious. I'm just scared ****less if i cant workout.

    Read up on something called shoulder instability. You'll find some exercises/movements you can do to strengthen the ligaments/tendons/etc. It's pretty important to do these even if it isn't the same problem you have. Muscles get stronger way quicker than ligaments and tendons. Sometimes bad things happen if they can't keep up.

    Will rep on recharge for being smart enough to be concerned instead of just shrugging it off (no pun)

    Hey dude, look up doing some basic rotator cuff exercises. My recommendation is that you rest but in the case that you do not wish to I suggest that you do some shoulder stretches, tennis ball massages, and ice the area in order for at least 10 min or so each day to aid recovery. This is what I have done with my shoulder issues when I had em and it has definitely helped.

    Update: i've ice each shoulder and its ALOT better now but not gone i've took some joint supplements and hopfully that helps out to. And hit the gym to do some rotator cuff exercises and help out somewhat. i was reading that if you massage it can get better and just mess around seeing what would happen. and it stop poping when i have my arm at a 90 degree angle and move it down from my head to my lower chest/stomic.

    i'm going to try to ice it some more take more supplements and try a new massage tomorrow and ill keep this thread post for other people with this problem!

    Some people have popping tendons and joints naturally. My left rotator cuff pops every single time I use it on the bench press. If there's no pain, don't sweat it.
    I move onward, the only direction. Can't be scared to fail in the search of perfection.

    With the stretching, its hard to explain but you want to lie on the ground and spread your sore shoulder to the side and kida of role over onto it whilst raising your other arm. As I said, Ice it up every day for a little while. Best thing to do is rest, but if you are impatient like myself, you can apply the techniques and as long as you have some decent recovery between your upperbody workout days you should be fine (maybe space out your shoulder and chest workout days further apart for a few weeks?)

    A good stretching routine is important but don't over-stretch. Lots of things in there that you could tear or irritate.

    Baseball player checking in..have a doctor check it out see what they think. I've had many shoulder injuries over the years including impingement, go pick up a band and do rotator cuff exercises everyday at the gym, and lift as much as you can without pain. I've been to pt and that's just a waste of money. IMO the best way to heal it is through strength training. Been injured all four years of high school, only way I've ever healed it is by lifting.

    Sup OP,

    Definitely get it checked out at a doctor but also make sure you do rotator cuff exercises (two should be sufficient) before your workouts on either chest day or shoulder day, atleast 2x a week for now.

    Also you said you use the machine for shoulder press ? machines are made for the 'average' body type and don't accommodate everyone as they can force your shoulders to move into a bad ROM. You should try using free weights such as seated DB press to start off as your main pushing exercise for shoulders and focus on form > weight.. this will develop your stabilizers and strengthen the surrounding ligaments/tendons but apart from that you should be fine.

    I've also heard that popping/clicking sounds in joints can be caused by having air in between and thats its not a worry but who knows.
