what u need 2 do is push yourself more and apply more strain on your shoulders, also try 2 cut down on protein a bit, u may be oversleeping. so i sugest a 1 week fast with no sleep and only train your chest all week (1000 reps 50 times a day for a week) that should stop the popping
Well its not when i am working out, it could happen anytime, but it happens most when i am on a off training day, or about 4 hours after work out, its a loud pop too........I dont even try to crack it thats the funny thing, somtimes when i am stretching or just out of the blue....
OK then....probably a sticky joint in the thoracic area...right where the rib joins the spine. It will do that with the movement you described...makes a sound like cracking your knuckles. It is a similar thing. The vibration travels along the rib and you feel it near or at the sternum.
It may be the same thing happening where a rib joins the breastbone.
Usually it is indicative of some lack of flexibility in the area, and is best served by some thoracic extension exercises, such as placing a towel on the floor and lying on it for a couple of minutes with the towel positioned across your shoulder blades.
The science is out there!
Actually I have this problem too... and it cracks down the dead center of my sternum. I can feel the pop so I know it's down the center... if you sleep wrong (happened to me) you might wake up with the worst sternum pain ever.
A healthy back does not crack, nor do most any other healthy joints! If they crack, they are usually stiff. In young guys, especially those who do weight-training, there is often tightness and this leads to stiffness and cracking. Work on your flexibility and good posture!
The science is out there!
you might be growing or something i have that same problem in my knees happens every so often though some one said its just growing to fast or soemting

If you were half as good as me you'd be close to perfection.
