Post subject:  Dumbbell Bent-Over Row

I did biceps and back at the gym last night and this was in my regimen.
I only used a 10 lb weight which wasn't excessive for a single hand use for me, but every time i lifted, I heard (rather than so much felt) a popping in my shoulders.

It didn't hurt and today, my shoulders don't hurt, but I'm just curious what this could lead to?

I do know, when I stretch my triceps (arms behind head, reach down the back) my shoulders will get that painful stiffness til I pop them in that position, then they're fine.

Just need to know if I should do an alternative exercise or if the problem will solve itself with strength development?

crepitus.

Also, do some strengthening of the muscles around the shoulder, primarily the rotator cuff group.

So just add a couple rotator cuff group exercises to back/shoulders day? I can do that.. :)

mate you'll love it. Makes my shoulders feel amazing after, no matter how achey they're feeling before it.

If you're doing it weighted, less is more. I use 2k bells and it's still hard work

That looks like exactly the sort of thing I need. I'll have to give that a try.

I think the YTWI (I haven't much done the L because I usually do and coach them while lying on the ground because you know, I'm usually coaching a whole team) is the best exercise to work your upper back. I love the agony people have with just bodyweight YTWI's when done for the first time. It looks like nothing but damn it burns.

first time I ever tried them I picked up two 5k bells. You can imagine how well that worked out.

I do have a problem when starting out, managing bodyweight exercises but I find it's the best place to start judging where your weak spots really are.
