    Tnubs feelin the magic of Joint Repair (sponsored)


    Just got in my bottle of Joint Repair from LG Sciences. It has Cissus, MSM, and two mystery ingredients which are new to the game and should actually help REBUILD connective tissue which is a HUGE deal. Ive been involved in powerlifting since my freshman year in college (now a junior) and ive gained a lot of strength... along with some terrible knees. They grind when i walk and i was told by a chiropractor that it was lose cartilage in the knees from heavy deads and squats. It makes sense, but also the time my knees feel best is when im squatting. Im slightly bow-legged, which doesnt help at all. Im hoping this product will help reduce the pain in my knees, as they are always aching and some days i just try not to walk if i dont have to. Elbows sometimes ache too, but its managable.

    Today is day 1, so I will be posting every night on how my joints are feeling!

    I think you're allowed to disclose ingredients now if its gone out for testing.

    btw... cissus i can taste in my mouth after i take the pills, especially on an empty stomach. kinda like fish oil burps. took 4 pills of this and nothing, so kinda nice in that sense. they also dont smell like cissus, so im going to assume the majority is the other two herbs. it smells good actually.

    Day 2, not too much to report. knees wernt bad today, but i cant really say it is from the joint repair because i dont think it would kick in that quick, but who knows. tomorrow will be a good judge as i have to work. i work at 5 guys, a burger joint, and standing for that long usually puts a lot of stress on my knees. so it will be a good judge of anti-inflammatory property.

    Day 3
    Did a few sets of squats today before work to blow off some steam and i must say i can tell a difference already. There was no discomfort at all. At work from standing so long they started to stiffen up but i think with some time that will get better as well. Considering i can already tell a difference on day 3, and it will only get better with time... I think LG found something that is going to be good.

    Day 4,
    Went to the gym today and did upper body and some leg extensions. I cant even believe how much this has already done. My knees have been completely pain free today. Usually extensions will cause a little irritation but this time, nothing. I dont think there will be any benefit to going any higher than 4 caps for me because its already been so effective at this dose. My knees have also stopped popping a lot. Usually lock up if i bend them too long if im sitting or like when im in bed and move around, but its been dramatically reduced today. This stuff is really good. I really think its going to have to be a staple for me, just hope its out on the market soon enough because i dont want to have to deal with knee pains anymore!

    Wednesday is deadlift day, im gonna post a video if i get 505. Ive always used straps because i always had a weak grip, but i found out about 2 weeks ago if i use baby powder i can lift almost as much as i can with straps. Got 500 last week with no belt/ no straps. My all time best was 520 with straps. Kinda off topic, but deadlifting is the only thing i enjoy in lifting, other than being pumped up. My bench(~260) and squat(~350) are very weak in comparison. My goal is to win first place nationally in just the deadlift. Im only 20 yrs old and im planning on competing in the 165 or 181 weight class. Im about 187 now, but apparently some grip thing at the gym said im 15% bf so i can lose a decent amount of weight. I looked into WNPF and apparently their best 198lber only pulled 525? I duno how thats correct, but a guy at my gym lifts with them and he said he won deadlift in that weightclass with only 460... and his best gym DL was 440.

    you ever heard of fatgripz? They go around the barbell and makes it thickier and harder to hold, soupposed to be excellent for your grip, if your looking on making it stronger then there is always deadlifting with towels and bent rows with towels and training with ropes too..just some ideas if your looking to increase grip strength.. I think I got a ebook somewhere on my PC on grip strength

    my grip strength is fine, i just have hyperhydrosis aka i sweat like a pig in winter. i can only wear wifebeaters in summer. and all my short sleeve shirts have terrible stains and hard spots under the armpits. and my hands are equally as bad. its like when you get super nervous and they sweat... but 10 times worse 24/7. very embarassing shaking peoples hands. i didnt really connect that to having grip problems but once i added in baby powder it literally instantly added 20lbs to my raw deadlift. my all time favorite for grip is using a towel wrapped around the cable pulldown. chinups work too i just need more control over how much weight im using. I have this crazy grip thing somewhere too with a pair of springs you adjust, its a huge contraption but it works. I just try not to do any specialized training, same way i never do isolations. From my experience if you wana get better at holding heavy ass weight, you gotta do as much as you can and slowly bump it up. Grip work has done little for actually improving grip strength on deads for me. Similar to trying to do decline bench to improve incline bench... limited carryover. If its not a very similar atmosphere its not gonna do much.

    Just got back from the gym. My back is trembling. Heres my workout

    Flat bench:
    135x10, 155x10, 185x10, 185x8

    Deadlift:
    315x5,405x1, 455x1, 505x (1/2), 315x5
    Shrugs: 3 sets of 315x10 full range of motion
    Curl: 45x3, 65x3, 75x3, 85x3, 95x1, 105x1, 115x1
    Straight arm pushdown(for lats): 5 sets

    The bench was because i wanted to stimulate my chest just a little bit without going heavy. The deadlifts were good but i noticed i was a little extra shakey at 455, so i kinda doubted getting the 505 up. I got it half way up then couldnt finish. Shrugs were done from the floor, like deadlift then shugged at the top. I havnt done shrugs in so long and it tore me up. Im going to be so sore tomorrow. Did a little lat work to get a pump going then left. Knees felt good all day, but after my heavy sets of deadlifts i noticed my elbows got REAL tight like uncomfortable to bend. They are fine now, 45 min after the gym. I also got yelled at for using chalk at the gym... kinda pissed about that too.

    On a side note, is there any way to increase the nervous systems capacity? I feel like i can only deadlift every other week now, as ive gotten stronger. But i would like to be able to do heavy singles every week.

    Bear in mind this is a supplement, not a miracle worker! Just because you feel great doesn't mean go balls out! Healing takes time. I would seriously not over do it until you feel like you have some time under your belt. This will help with inflammation but true healing will take a while, so just take it easy please (just looking out for you man).

    Day 7
    All is good today working out again tomorrow.
    Im curious as to how quickly the rebuilding effects kick in, and once im done taking them how long before the pain comes back. Hopefully not soon, life has been good not being bothered by my knees all the time. Thumbs up

    It was so close on 505, actually. I just didnt get it locked out. I watched my video and i went up higher than it felt like i did. My phones just being difficult and wont let me locate the video on my memory card, but i can play it on my phone... so i duno how to put it online :-/

    Todays workout:

    Bench: 185x12, 8, 8, 8,
    Pullups: 8, 8, 6, 6
    Squats: 225x 8, 5, 7
    Lateral Shoulder Raise: 40x 5, 5

    Im going back to a bodybuilding style routine for a bit. I must say im enjoying high reps. I got pumped as hell today especially my chest and arms. I looked in the mirror and flexed a little before i jumped in the shower and my chest looked so nice and striated. My traps were super sore too which made it harder to bench but doable, squats were painfull to say the least. Couldnt go heavy or rest the bar in the right spots cuz i couldnt contract my traps enough from being too stiff.

    Joints: knees had some minor pain throughout the day, not a nagging pain like usual just some moments where they just ache for a minute then stop. Shoulders and elbows are doin fine

    6 caps today, took 3 with breakfast at 10am, 1 more just now with a meal, and im gonna pop 2 more tonight. it may take a few days to get used to the higher dosage but im betting its gona be great.

    worked this morning and knees got real stiff still, but that may not exactly be joint related because its not hurting when im walking or anything. tomorrow is squat/bench/rows so we will see how that goes

    Day 11(yesterday)
    Wasnt feeling too much more than 4 pills but heres my workout

    Bench: 185x13, 10, 10
    Rows, 4 sets
    Squat: 225x10, 10

    Strength was definetly up this workout and no joint problems at all. Up to 190 pounds(+3lbs), probably from eating so much lately.


    Today, Day 12
    Feeling pretty good! After today i will have 6 days left at 6 caps then ill be out. So 90 caps lasted 18 days. Hopefully when it comes out, there will be more than 90 caps in it, but really im sure most people will only need 3 caps/day. Its a pretty effective formula. I picked up some bulk supercissus to hopefully hold me over till this stuff hits the shelf after i run out. On a side note, my knees seriously feel less crunchy. Either this stuff has completely cut down on the inflammation so theres more tolerance or its healing my knee joints!

    Just did an arm workout with my buddy, did some really close grip decline bench and it was messin with my wrists a little bit but the pain went away a few minutes after the set. Other than that all was good.

    hadn't really noticed anything, but for the past 2 weeks I have ben trying to get in excess of 1k calories then what I normally eat and havent had a problem eating that much.. usually I have to force food down my throat but I dont know if it is an increased hunger..

    ive been taking 2 caps three times a day and its just a general feeling of breaking the fridge apart, but im also taking Diesel Test Pro Cycle so it could be that too, but i dont remember it effecting me like that last time

    knee pain came back for a bit last night, but then went away. right now my lower back is killing me. it hurts to sit but i cant tell if its just so much sore muscle or if its like where my hips meet my spine.

    i also did yoga/pilates today at the gym. it was a pretty good workout moving around so much and trying to hold weird positions. i found some pretty good stretches for my hips that i really wana try after im warmed up from squats.

    only a few more days of Joint Repair left... so get this to the market!

    Day 14,

    No pain today

    Bench: 190x10
    High Row(machine): 290x10x2 sets
    Shoulder Press: 115x10
    Cable Curl: 120x10
    Dips: 15
    Squats: 230x9

    I felt pretty good, only did one set per excercise except the high row machine. When i got to squats, it was feeling easy and all was good till rep 7 when i start getting light headed, rep 8 was a bad headache, did rep 9 and got so close to passing out. It wasnt that it was hard, i could have done 15 reps. My blood pressure was just insane. DTP got it up, then i decided to take some arsenal x, which is a strong pre-workout stimulant.... but since DTP intensifies all stims and i havnt taken any stims in forever, it pushed me over the edge. I slowly walked to get water, sat down, went outside in the cold, cold shower... nothing helped. 90 minutes later it slowly went away. It was a terrible feeling, i didnt feel comfortable driving because i didnt know if i was gonna pass out. Still light headed. Blood pressure is now 158/80... pulse of 92... ugh. No more dtp
