Im a right breather, beginner swimmer. Im making great grounds on my
swimming. TI book is helping. However, my left shoulder pops when i
recover-retrieve my arm. Ive had some discomfort in it after some
swims. But it quickly dissipates. Ive found if i pull my left arm up
and close to my stomach it doesnt pop. I guess i should  learn to
breath on both sides. Any advice would help this roadie. Cheers

My left hip pops when I do leg-lifts.
I 'splained it to my medico and he told me not to do
the sorts of things that make it pop.

His theory is that there is some sort of bump on a surface
over which a tendon slides and the tendon 'pops'
when it goes over the bump. His went on to suggest
that the biggest problem would be inflamation if this became
irritated. Hence the recommendation not to make it pop.

Keep up the good work,
