Hopefully this sounds much worse than it is but anytime I do the first rep on my squat my knees make a very loud, audible pop sound. It sounds exactly like cracking knuckles only a bit louder. It doesn’t hurt at all, nor do I feel any pain that I wouldn’t consider normal soreness after I workout.
The thing is my knees have always done this, I’m only 23, I used to weigh about 300+, since working out I’ve dropped to 221 in the past year. Ever since I remember they have made this sound. In fact when I do a squat with no weight they still pop. I’ve been working on my form and that has helped a little but no matter what on that first rep they make this sound.
Is thought this was something that would go away as I lost weight. How worried should I be about this? Like I said it doesn’t hurt at all.
