    Unhappy Pain relief

    So I'm starting to really feel the effects of years of heavy training on my joints and tendons. I've started running some deca at 300 mg a week to get a little lubrication. I'm wondering what else everyone likes to use for pain? I dont really want To get on the perks or anything too hard on the guts. Any suggestions would be great if its OTC or something from a sponsor or alternative online pharm. Thanks guys!

    you may wanna do 600 a week to even notice the lub effect bro...

    you only 220 or so when injecting 300 a week.

    other than that i take glucosamine and chondroitin supps.

    It's a pain but ice works wonders.

    Many advanced lifters swear by it.

    When was the last time you took 7-14 days off from the gym or even reduced the number of days you go?

    Here's what I usually do, it might help:

    I'll do an 8 week blast, then take 10-14 days off keeping my calories about the same. I will then go to the gym only 3 times a week for 12 weeks or so. Once I get ready to blast again it's another 8 weeks and 4 days a week.

    It helps with the mental grind and also allows for some healing and much needed rest. It also helps keep the LBM you have without having to kill yourself 365 days a year.

    At my age and the years I've put in it really seems to help a lot. As long as you keep up on the diet and do 30 mins of cardio 3 times a week you won't lose anything. I can't go more than 8 weeks at a time without being totally fried unless I'm cutting, then I just stop training and keep up the cardio.

    Believe it or not your body needs a lot of rest. The older we get the slower the recovery.........unless you're using GH.

    Good luck.

    Thanks guys! CT I try and take a week every 2 months just for some much needed r&r. But I am on cycle right now and making huge gains, also getting ready for the I'm challenge. I am a month into a new lifting cycle aswell 2 weeks heavy to failure and one week 100 for 100. I will start the ice asap but do you think it's smart to take a week off during a cycle?

    Doc has me on Vicodin 10mg twice daily for neck pain due to an old rugby injury (disc degenerative disease on cervical C5 & C6). It does help with occassional joint pain/stiffness too as does a little Deca. Of course, if I abuse it, I will run out early and build a tolerance so I've made sure to take it as prescribed and it offers some relief. Also, nothing quite like sitting in a hot jacuzzi to relax everything.

    Maybe try and just cut down on the volume for a week or two. Insted of doing 4-5 sets just do 2. It's called de-loading. It helps with the CNS and burn out. That might be an option.

    I do something very similar to this^^^

    ...and it does work wonders for overall recovery.

    I also take time off when I need it. If you are run down your body may need some time to recover. I like CT's post.

    Time off would be your best bet, as stated above. Give your body a rest

    Try Arnica tabs and gel.I don't know much about many things- but soreness and joint pain is something I am well vesred in. Happens with age ( me-not you) It is OTC- cheap and worth a try. Just thought I would toss it out there.Luck

    Deca sure, but it's not going to make your tendons and ligaments any younger. Time to start listening to your body, take a good dose of Omega-3's 2x a day, and a couple aspirin... Yea kind of back to basics but aspirin is on of the few natural anti-inflammitor's that are legal, plus they are good for your heart and blood circulation. Get used to taking them.

    Perhaps its a warning sign and if you keep pushing it you may tear something you really wish you didn't.

    How about some peptides to help with the tendon/ligament issues?
