Joint Problems

My shoulders and elbows have been hurting every time i lift. i have just worked through it but wondered if there is a reasonably priced supplement for this, or any kind of stretch i can do.

Glucosomine Chondroitin I think that's how you spell it. It can prevent further damage and will lube your joints. Least that's what my doctor told me.

Go get a bottle of the liquid stuff so it starts working for you quickly and then when that is out just stick with the pills. I don't have joint pain yet, but I'm keeping a bottle around for anytime that I start to ache (some cold stormy days my knees hurt a little, could be a forwarning to later joint problems )

Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate supplement.

And I know this will sound weird, but, if you are drinking soft drinks, cut down on that. Also, if you are eating primarily red meat, cut down on that.

G/CS supplement is a "wonder" drug. I've got arthritis in my right knee, big freakin' pain sometimes, esp. after running long distance. After I started taking G/CS all the pain went away.

The soft drink/red meat thing has no scientific basis that I know about, but I do know knee it less when I cut back.

Like I said, the red meat and soda was a trial of one (me!). Could have been a coincidence.

But, I can tell you my 41 year old joints love glucosomine. Make sure you read the directions and give it a week or so to see any effects. It isn't like taking aspirin.

I can't remember if, when I started taking it a year or so ago, if I "ramped up" initially or not. But, the directions would tell you to or not.
