    rib cage pops when I stretch

    it isnt uncomfortable or annoying at all, but when i stretch the middle of my rib cage in between my pecs always pops and cracks. It happens usually but more so for a few days after a chest workout, could this be my rib cage expanding?? Anythoughts??

    Man, this JUST started to happen to me in the summer... I always thought it was cuz i injured myself. It stopped recently about 3 months ago when i've been focusing on developing my back, i think it had to do with my posture as well, i found that when i was in an ackward position for a long time i was more prone to it popping when stretching or shifting positions... i dunno though...

    Bump for more thoughts

    the pop is probobly just gas being released. similar to cracking your knuckles. Happens to me all the time.

    Yeah, my back always pops too. It almost feels like there's pressure being released when it pops, feels good.

    Yup, feels really good, I usually do it before squats or deads.

    sweet

    I always crack my spine out by doing twists on the floor before I do deadlifts or squats. Its best to get everything aligned and flexible before lifting heavy!

    I've had to stop doing my knuckles which is a habit because its starting to screw them up now that I've started to get heavy on the deadlifts

    Once I did very wide chest dips and I got up and stretched out my rib cage and my sternum made this popping sound. There was too much force there, so I just went to a slightly narrower grip and didn't go so low.
