For the past month or so my right shoulder has been clicking during pull ups. It happens during the eccentric on the way down. Chin ups make it click too, but not as loudly. It doesn't hurt all, it just makes a popping noise.
Is this bad? What can I do to stop it? Thanks for any help.

I had clicking in my elbows during skullcrushers. In about a week, it turned into an injury, so I'm guessing this is a bad sign.
Make sure you exercise/rotate your rotator cuffs before any shoulder exercise, or pull-ups in your case. Also, your shoulders are prolly not ideal. Doing the exercises in this video should help you. They helped me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPm5dQ4_yhE"Lift light, until you can lift right!" Leave your ego out of it!
Don't compare yourself to others. You're your own person.
Lift, eat, then sleep. Rinse & Repeat.

Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

Also I forgot to add that my right shoulder also clicks during lateral raises (in the eccentric).

Go to a sports/physio therapist & get it checked out. I had clicking because of a shoulder instability. It was tendons sliding across bones, they were not moving in the path they should have been. Now this is something that takes years & years, but from what he said, eventually it can cause the tendons to get tough & enlarge (like a callous). It was relatively easy to treat.
It could be other things too, I guess, Idk, not a doctor, that's why you should see one.Bender, part of being human is having self-control. -Amy Wong
