    i have been working out for about 14 weeks now and ive seem to found that my joints are my weakness. 1st my knee was giving me trouble so i have stopped working my legs (only until it feels better) now my elbow is fucked up :wtc: i bought some glucosamine and have been taking it for a week or two yet it hasnt really seemed to make much of a difference. im thinking of taking a week off everything and see how it goes but i really dont want to. does anyone have any suggestions? also i have read on here that ibuprofen will slow muscle growth so i have not taken any to reduce the pain will it really make a difference in my progress? (i doubt it but just wondering)

    Glucosamine will take a lot longer than a week or 2 to have any noticable effects, blood travels to the joints the slowest, therefor glucosamine takes a while for your body to utilize it religiously, give it a month or more until you decide if its for you are not. Also make sure your taking a good product, you get what you pay for.

    sesathin is supposed to keep your joints lubed as well

    just after a couple days taking it when i was cutting, i already noticed that the usual pain in my elbows during tricep pushdown was gone. surprised the hell outta me.
