Maybe I am getting older (37 now) but maybe my joints are just bad - they always caused some trouble, one way or the other.
I do bench presses, my shoulders hurt. I ride a sportbike, my wrists are killing me. I do squats… actually I couldn’t do squats, because my knees just couldn’t take it. Fortunately, I just discovered knee braces, it’s too early to tell for sure but they seem to make a huge difference.
Anyway, I have to do something, or else I wouldn’t be able to lift at all. I am taking Glucosamin + Chondroitin + MSM twice a day, but I’ve read that it may take a while until any improvement is seen, if there is any improvement at all.
So perhaps I’m not doing the warm-up properly. I currently use the warm-up routine that I learned years ago when I was doing martial arts (karate). Well, that’s perhaps not the best routine for warming up before lifting weights.
Can you guys tell me where I can find a good warm-up routine for people who have issues with the major joints?
Anything else you can think of?
