Yes. Be sure you get warmed up well. Do some light cardio for 10-15 minutes and some light lifting before. It works for me. Doesn’t totally take the soreness away but does minimize it quite a bit. And yes you’re probably getting old, lol! I’m 45 so I can say that.Just curious does anyone get sore Tendons from heavy lifting sessions? It doesn't get in the way of my sessions but it's pretty much always there. Guess I'm just getting old.
I do take BioCell Collagen, and I don’t need nearly as much chap stick in the winter and my lips rarely crack. That stuff does well for skin hydration etc. This gelatin is certainly a different approach, I will have to look at it more. I do recall somebody on here recently reporting success with it!
I take 1,000mg Curcumin C3 Complex per day, along with Liquid fish oil and Krill oil capsules (some days). I seem to do better on the liquid fish oil if I had to chose one. Also, about 3 grams of OptiMSM/day.Yeah. I get around 6000 mg fish oil daily. Tried Genoflex not really impressed. I just work thru the pain, I've accepted it as always just being there, I'll give the tumeric a shot though.
Yeah, I am basically always in the 10-15 range. Have been for years. Even when my body felt great, I rarely felt comfortable working in the lower rep range. I don’t care about moving an impressive amount of weight and I surely don’t go for PR’s on a regular basis, they just come naturally when they come. I enjoy my time in the gym, as well as the physical/mental benefits, so I want to keep that up as long as possible.At age 61, I try to focus on what I call “strength range” reps (5-8) and “stamina range” reps (10-15).
After 35 years away from the weight room I was suffering from osteoarthritis, tendinitis, fasciitis, and bursitis in my shoulder, knee, and hip joints. Two years ago, I started hitting the weights again. My lifts are all in the strength and stamina rep ranges and now I rarely suffer from those conditions anymore.
The “power range” rep range (1-4) really puts too much stress on my connective tissues so I rarely do them.
Everyone is different, but the higher rep ranges have worked miracles for me.
It may be worth a try for you young guys as well.
I hope this helps.
Stay safe, stay strong!
