    Weird chest popping/crackling


    Has any one ever had their chest pop while squatting? Not like a single loud pop. This was totally different.

    The best way I can describe it, is that it felt (the sound was minimal but you could hear it if you really listen) like a roll of micro firecrackers was going off in/under my left pec.

    I couldnt tell if it was in my pec muscle or underneath it.

    I squat over a bench bec I don't have a spotter and everytime I'd come down and touch the bench about 8-10 little micro pops all across my left pec would go off.

    Anyone have any Idea what this could be? I've googled it and all that comes up is like ribs adjusting in sternum/collar bone popping etc which I don't think either of those would feel like this. When it first happened I thought it was little blood vessels rupturing so I waited a few minutes to see If I could notice anything visually that would indicate that but it never did.

    Any ideas?
