In the recent few weeks I have been noticing more and more irritation during my workouts. Now that I'm on UD2, the severe calorie restriction is making the joint pain even worse. Combine that with the fact that I just got off a test only cycle and have been lifting heavy as possible. I'm now having to reduce my weights drastically to get through my sets. My squats for example have gone from 305 to 265 today and it's not due to the strength.. it's the knee pain.
Obviously, lifting shouldn't hurt anything but muscles. I would rather avoid time off since I'm right in the middle of UD2 and making great progress but between my knee, elbow and shoulder.. the quality of my training is beginning to suffer.
I currently take 6 grams of fish oil but not really anything else. I'm still cruising on 200mg/wk of test as well so is there anything else I can add to help my joints stay healthy until I can take a week off? I need another month or so to finish up UD2 before I can take a break.
