    Hey guys, i'm 32 and been training since I was 16 and always heavy set with low reps, i've also competed in powerlifting in the old 67.5 kgs and 74 kg classes. I had a very slack 6 months at the start of the year due to shoulder issues and loss of motivation for the first time in my life. Anyway I have been hitting it hard for just over a month now and i'm finding my joints are so friggen sore all of them lol. I work as a tradie and have a hard time going up and down ladders all day bending, kneeling etc, feels like im bloody 60 years old.

    I have been reading on things like msm and glucosamine and joint support supplements and stuff and just wondering if any of you other guys have had similar joint problems and what did you do to fix them... Just after advice.

    Cheers,
    Shaun.

    I'm not really convinced that those products make a whole heap of difference.

    You're just gonna have to back off a bit until your body gets used to lifting again. Heavy weights ain't gonna help at all.

    I would figure out whats causing the pain. ie tight hip flexors causing lower back pain etc
    then start doing plenty of mobility work

    glucosamine works, and massage for the joints.
    but if its starting to hurt you might want to venture into bodybuilding using the Tension under muscle method

    Hi Shaun,

    You sound like you have systemic inflammation. You did mention that you lost motivation and so on. Some people when they're feeling down, they eat more junk (in the form of sugar and hydrogenated fats) than is usually the case. One of the major culprits here for systemic joint pain is processed cheese, that plastic looking and feeling product.

    You need to take a closer look at your diet and make a shift to including plenty of alkaline forming foods, whilst at the same time, making an effort to drastically reduce acid causing ones. So plenty of green leafy greens and fruits including freshly squeezed lemon juice and real salt, such as Himalayan salt.

    Fish oils and the like is not a path I would take unless you like looking older than your actual age as time goes by. The reason for that is fish/krill oil or whatever oil that is high in omega 3 (flax and chia seeds etc.) is not the health food people think it is. Once an omega 3 fat has been made naked, as in separated from its original source, it turns rancid almost instantly due to its high instability. The opposite is true of say, saturated fatty acids found in products such as coconuts, ghee and the like.

    Basically the message I'm aiming to get across to you is the fact that you need to listen to the message your body has been sending you, and hoping that you don't settle for a band aid solution should that be found in some drug or supplement pill.

    Overall diet and some high rep training to finish your workout with in order to attract as much nutrient dense blood to the area you've just exercised.
