When I do diamond pushups, sometimes I hear &feel this sort of popping/snapping noise in the outer part of my left wrist. Is it something to be concerned about or it's fine?

Seriously though, it's 99% nothing bad. When you do exercises, your body starts to make all these weird and creepy noises, usually due to the muscles/bones being used and flexed in different ways from your common-day usage. Some of these will stop after a time of adequate exercise and flexing.

So don't worry, especially if you've just started working out or doing push-ups. :)

I get that clicking all the time. It kind of scares me honestly, so I try to change my form to make it stop. Sometimes it's unavoidable though. And, since I've gotten a screw in my left wrist, my left wrist has been clicking way more than normal for the past year, but it has been a year and it's still fine so I guess clicking doesn't mean much.

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

It's important to keep your elbows in when doing push-ups, flairing them outwards causes all types of problems both in the elbows and wrists. Your elbows should bend down towards your feet, not out to your sides. Using push-up handles aids the wrists a lot too, minimizing the motion your wrists have to go through.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Good to know.

I just found out it's the same with bench presses. Did not know that.

Thanx.

I recommend a 10-15 minute dynamic warmup-up prior to strength training. What does this mean? Jump roping, walking, jogging, and even jumping to increase the heart rate, breathing rate, activate the nervous system, allow your tendons and joints to become mobile and prepare for activity. Their are unique warmup-ups for the wrists that you may consider researching.

If there is any pain or discomfort that prohibits exercise, cease and consult a specialist.

I should specify that I did not mean make your tendons mobile, but prepared for activity, Your joints should be taken through its proper range of motion to allow for mobility to decrease and prevent stiffness.

That happened to me with regular push ups, never worried me and it stopped when I started to gain strenght so I could do them with less effort. If the exercise is demanding a lot of effort on your part, then I would say the popping thing is harmless. If, however, it happens to you also when you're using little force, I would tell the doctor.
