OH S**T, as i try to do OHPs properly, when the bar moves to overhead position the right shoulder starts to click!
It's not so much the clicking and popping, but if you're having pain with those noises, some degree of clicking and popping is normal. napalm is right it sounds like youre are getting shoulder impingment, pinching under the acromial arch. This is often caused by overhead movements. Really work on scapular stability and the RTC muscles, this will help with stability and positioning in the joint.

forward rounding shoulders are not cool, don't be that guy...
sorry for the late reply there was somthing wrong with the notifications.. i thought nobody replied anymore.. doing those exercises everyday now, 2 sets 6-8 reps, 2 exercises.. i'm sure 100% it was caused by my improper bench form! now i'm keeping the shoulder blades tight and pressed together, plus i try to keep my elbows near my side and less flared..
"forward rounding shoulders are not cool, don't be that guy..." - is this too big on front delts and small rear delts?
Try lying on your back. Now, with your thumbs facing upwards bring your arms up over your head and lower them behind you, keeping your elbows close to your ears. Keep your elbows LOCKED. If you cannot put your hands on the floor easily then you have shortness in your pecs and/or lats.

ohhh i thought it mean't how your chest looks.. haha.. just did it, easily.. really? some people can't do it?..
been doing benches correctly now! watched "so you think you can bench" series on youtube..
also been doing the strengthening exercises for the shoulders/midtraps and i'm getting less bothered with my right shoulder impingement!
as i\m doing OHPs (which really is a great compound) when i lower the weight below my chin, and start to push it overhead my right shoulder clicks (but doesn't bother the lift). but if i keep it in-line or slightly above my chin everything is fine.
should i keep it above my chin and sacrifice form?
who would've know bodybuilding/weightlifting/strongman would be so taxing to the brain!
most guys think we are just dumba**ess but really it requires alot of research and understanding. next you have to separate science from broscience.. then you've gotta apply what you've learned..
an educated bodybuilder is the one who builds the best bod.
i should have been reading along time ago!
