...when I am about midway through an Arnold Press repitition. It doesn't bother me at all, nor is it even loud enough for anyone near me to hear. I was just wondering if it might get worse, and should I worry at all?
heres how to fix it...
1. put your arm in a vice.
2. do a backflip.
3. repeat until your arm rides freely in the socket.
4. nah jk... lol i hear that if it doesnt hurt its not bad.
dude go to the doctors i had the same thing thought it was nothing and now im out for a week and a half because i avoided it and have bursitis in my right shoulder
I've heard that Arnold Presses aren't that great for your shoulders, I don't do them at all
cracking happens dont worry about it. its pain u should worry about.

I had a similar sounding noise from my left shoulder when doing upright bb rows. I moved my grip slightly wider and it doesnt happen. I guess it's common.
Anyone know if repeating the movement (and cracking) makes it better or worse?
I would avoid doing the exercise if the noise gets worse, or is painful, or if it's a sharp crack noise. Otherwise, see if it goes away soon, you might actually solve the problem with exercise.

i have that in both my wrists and in my left shoulder. i dont know why but i constantly crack my wrists all day long, and every time i throw a jab my elbow cracks. it sucks and im probly gonna **** up myu joins and get authritis or some ****
If it doesn't hurt, keep doing it.
If it hurts, stop doing it.
There you go.Originally Posted by spencerjrus
My left shoulder and elbow do the same, but they donīt hurt at all. No worries.
Goals for 2005:
Add thickness to back, forearms, chest.

My elbows would crack like hell when I did UR rows. I noticed the more I pulled the bar away from my body the louder and more irritating it was. I don't do those much anymore also.
Thanks for the replies. But I don't see how "Arnold Presses aren't that great for your shoulders"
And it doesn't even happen all the time. It only happened in my first set for some reason. But, anyway, I think I just moved my shoulders a little bit differently and they stopped cracking.
