    I've noticed when I raise my arms higher than my shoulders, I heard a cracking sort of noise in my joints (i presume its the arm/shoulder joint). It's most apparantly when I'm lowering a lifted weight from above my height (like arnold press).

    It doesn't hurt, doesn't seem to hinder performance or anything else. It's not getting worse, it's just there. It sounds like the bones are cracking in the joint.

    Any idea what's happening here?

    man, this comes up alot...
    it is most likely the tendon's in your shoulder flipping along the bone -- if it doesn't cause pain or inflammation it's probably nothing to worry about.

    So it's a common thing then? I guess that makes me feel better. I'll see if i can google anything up.

    911 = 999 in the UK :hsughr:
