Have just started lifting fairly heavy and have noticed bad tendon pain. I take vit's and supps for joints but they have'nt worked for my tendons....any recomendations wouls be greatly appreciatted.
Which tendons/joints are causing you problems boss? I used a wrap on my arm when I had tennis elbow from benching heavy weight, used it at night when I slept and it made a huge difference. I also took some down time and did some support work, and then it seemed to clear up. There were times when I pushed through the pain also. A supp I highly recommend as do others is http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/u...x-44-pack.html I have and continue to use it and find it very effective. I also use as well, and as mentioned above, you could also use Cissus, which I have used and can recommend as well. Additionally, might wanna check your diet too, for things like enough water, or too much processed sugar as these can affect your joints as well. Lots of things can come into play, even proper technique, not meant to offend. Possibly even warming up more/stretching more could placate it perhaps. Tons of helpful advice to be had here, lemme know how it all works out. Any more details would help., by Universal Nutrition.
google wobenzym n, i have been taking it for about a week and i believe i feel a difference already. it's not your typical joint supp, but it has a ton of research behind it dating back to 1950's.
In order of importance, Rest, icing after workout, stretching, anti-inflammatory drugs as needed.
Warm up more. I bet you're going in and hitting it hard, right away. Try running at least a mile, if not two, pre-workout. Then be sure to do several warmup set in incrementally heavier sets for each body part. At first you may feel weaker, but it's OK, better that than having to stop for a month while the tendons calm down. You may actually lift harder, because you're fully warmed up.
And use USPLabs Cissus.
i am recovering from knee surgery, after just a week on wobenzym n, i can feel a difference. this stuff puts glucosamine and the likes to shame. very unique formula.
Thankyou all for the recomendations. Mostly the tendons to my biceps kill anytime I do any kind of heavy weight. I have tried icing..but it doesnt seem to work.I only have been using Glucosamine. I have never tried cissus but I will research it, as well as the Wobenzyme. If anyone knows of anything the have used for awhile and have actually seen it work for them please let me know. Again ty.
