I know the first impression people have is ARTHRITIS ! but this definitely isnt the case as i am only 28 and i just did my MRI last year and there is absolutely no arthritis .

But when i do some simple home exercise, esp one that my physio taught me, lying on the bed and bring your knee as close as you can to your chest, then straighten it again. Sometimes my knee gives out a loud , clearly audible snap sound, with no pain.

Is that normal?

yes it is perfectly normal
but this has never happened before. and quite annoying .

i was talking to my doctor over my back pain problem and he told me that my back pain was caused by prolonged inactivity and weak back. Could it be possible my knee snaps because of weakness too?

I have it as well, a clicking sound.

It's annoying but not sore in the slightest.

All my joints click several times a day but I have loose joints. It won't be arthritis as that comes with pain and stiffness. It's common for young people to get clicky joints.

I avoid bending my legs often but if I do it a couple times then it will click several times in a row.

I get the opposite; when I straighten my knees from when they're bent, they click.
It's normal though, dw.

I have pretty clicky joints that would be worthy of an ASMR video. Pretty much everything cracks. There's nothing mechanical going on when you crack a joint. You're just releasing built-up gases in the protective fluids that surround the joints.
