So, I have hip problems, and when I work out there's almost always a popping noise in my hip. Plus it can be painful sometimes. Anybody know any workouts that are easy on the hips?
Not sure what you're doing that hurts but what I did for my weird pain in the backs of my knees on leg curls was to go down to very low weight that didn't have my tendons twinging, and do more reps. Noticing definite improvement.
You may need to strengthen the smaller connective tissue around the joint, before you're ready to start actually challenging the larger muscles of the leg. This is relatively common, I think. Hopefully you can work through it. I've noticed an old shoulder injury that mildly bothered me for years has really improved as I've worked out.
There are some moves that when I do them my hips click. I have weak hamstrings and too tight muscles on one of my legs though so perhaps that's why.
