I have been implementing a lot of mobility stuff as of recently, into my modified WS4SBIII program in order to fix my Anterior Pelvic tilt and some other postural problems.
On Upper body days, I usually do the more general upper body mobility stuff together with some static stretches.
On Lower body days, I do a ton of exercises:
A1. Rectus Femoris Stretch
A2. Glute Bridges
B1. Piriformis Stretch
B2. Lying Clams
Knee hugs, Pull-back butt kicks, warrior lunges, running butt kicks, cross over reverse lunges, cradle walks, leg swings, roll over into v-seats, fire hydrant circles, mountain climbers, groiners, planks, bird dogs, prone scorpions. (I usually do more than half of them).
Thing is I am really trying to fix my Anterior Pelvic Tilt because it’s been giving me a super big ass, a protruding stomach and lately some of my friends claim I am doing the shit-walk…
Now to my problem. I have actually been feeling an improvement postural wise allover my body, but my shoulders, elbows, knees and hip sockets are doing some really brutal cracking sounds. I mean it’s not painful but it’s very uncomfortable.
Are the joints supposed to make loud sounds when you are trying to correct imbalances and postural problems? Is this a result of all the corrective exercises? Or perhaps because of the fact that I always like to lift heavy?
I haven’t been to the gym for the last 2 weeks nor have I trained MMA where a lot of isometric training is occurring during our grappling sessions. And the sounds are worse than ever?
