New guy has a question
 
Just joined the site... great information but I can't find an answer to what I'm concerned with...
At 53 years old I consider myself in pretty good shape. 6'5" tall 240 lbs, 14% bf, 17" arms 50" chest etc...
Been working out since I was 19 ,just basic free weight workouts approx 30 minutes every other day since then. At 50 my life was turned upside down on the personal side so I really stepped up my worouts... for the first two years the results were fantastic (still using free weights and crunches) but over the last 8 -10 monthes I've been noticing more and more pain with my workouts.... Wrist, elboe, neck and back pain. Almost to the point that I'm tempted to back off...or see my Dr.. I started using Creatin about the time this started. I did take a few weeks off over Thanksgiving but it didn't help.
Is this just a sign of getting old or pushing too hard? Any thoughts? Thanks, Dave

I think you need to invest in a joint supplement for sure. Also, the older you get, the easier you have to take it, in reality. Try to do less strenuous workouts for your joints, and keep the weight lower with higher reps.

Make sure your form is in check and you're not going too heavy on some exercises! You may feel like 25 yrs old again but your body may not be up to par! Joint supplement will help and try to choose exercises that arent too strenuous on joints!

I just wanna know
 
Just signed up to this forum.....I've tried many methods to get the shape I aimed for,but one only question still rises itself: how can I build my body with no supplements and naturaly?

I want your help urgently

I'm 37 and I get some of that, sounds like aging. Joint supps ara definite must. Glucosamine / Chondroitin / MSM and agood omega 3 fish oil always help me.

I could be wrong, but I doubt it's his form if he has lifted since 19. Could be wrong though, sound like age.
