One day I'll grow up to be strong and to eat properly. Only if "properly" can be defined objectively.

My Ride: Too many to list
Weighted pull ups are tough at first. I've always excelled at pullups (still hold several records in school, and yes, I did them without jerking around). I've noticed after a few weeks of doing weighted pullups, normal ones feel soooo much easier.

So somewhat dip related... I took a two week hiatus from working out and then got back into the gym... did back/biceps one day, chest/triceps the next, legs and shoulders the third... took a day break.. than back/biceps one day, chest/triceps the next.... then randomly at night I went to pick up a box and as I did, I heard a rubbing/grinding sound in my left elbow.. i put the box down and tried to lift it again.. same thing. It seems that when I get to about a 90* bend in my arm, the sound appeared... i tried today to replicate it but the noise is gone.. though it's somewhat sore.

Anyone have any idea what this could be? I'm supposed to be back in the gym today but don't want to hurt myself.

That doesn't sound healthy. My ankle clicks/grinds but I've never had it in my elbow before.

Not sure man. I have some clicking in my knees, shoulders and ankle sometimes but never any pain. See how it feels in a few days and if it doesn't go away get it checked out.

My knees have been popping since I hit puberty.
My shoulders sometimes pop depending on what I'm doing. Usually bench or dumbbell press. Sometimes it pops. Sometimes it doesn't. It feels weird all thru the workout if they don't pop. But they never hurt.
Sometimes it feels weird on pull ups but again, doesn't hurt.

Busy at eod school. Barely have time to workout. All I do is school and pt and sleep and repeat. Started losing weight. Then started hitting the gym on weekends. Man I've gotten so weak.
But after the break its back to it. Bought a 60lbs weight vest, been running with it at about 45-50lbs That thing is no joke. 1.5-2miles is TOUGH!

An MIR one I found on amazon. Was like $110 to my door. Quick shipping too. Haven't quite figured out the side straps but I just suck it up and run with it.

M3Inline6,

I wanted to thank you man. I got to 8 pull-ups with 30lbs. and 12 dips with 40lbs. Numbers I did not think I could do before. I could see now doing pull-ups with 80lbs possible.

How many do you do?

I find weighted pull-ups and chin-ups to be the most important moves for a solid upper back and rear delts. I don't even do rows, maybe every other week.

I mix up my sets, and I almost always try to pull at least 25 using only my body weight after I've performed all of my weighted sets. I still cable row. I still perform dumbbell rows. I still perform T-Bar rows. I still perform lat pull-downs. My point?! There's a place for everything. Pull-ups are great, but there is more to developing a great looking back than just the pull-up.
