    Shoulders and elbows r killing me

    Hey guys, looking Into getting a joint support and seeing if that helps. I've read good things about iml flex, but also some stuff on bodybuilding.com. Was wondering just from personal experience which u think is best. It's mainly my right arm, from elbow to shoulder is just on fire when I'm doing any thing physical. I feel my shoulders grew way faster than the rest of me, and maybe it's over compensating. Also, I play about 7 games a week of slow pitch softball just for all round exercise and I played sports all through school so.. And I'm right handed so a lot of throws and swings I'm sure isn't helping at all. Don't want 2 make this a doctor visit, so any help would b great.

    Glucosamine chondroitin with MSM works pretty well for joint relief/comfort. Takes about 2 weeks to start working.

    This plus.
    ICE
    Fish Oil
    Bromelain
    Boswellia
    Turmeric
    IGFl3
    TB-500
    Extra Vit C
    Cissus

    All good additions to the aforementioned products.

    Truthfully it sounds like an overuse type injury and you will have to give the extra stress you are imposing on that arm/shoulder area a break and chance to heal.

    I think ur right, but not wanting 2 actually take time off of lifting, so hopefully when the softball gets over in a month or so and I'm not putting so much stress on it it will go away. And I've got some on the way guys! Thx!

    Glucosamine chondroitin with MSM is your best option. Which fish oil too. As everyone mentioned ha. Ice it in between workout days and try some strengthen exercises for your rotator cuff. Not sure about your elbow. Good luck!

    Look into cissus. Nothing has been able to reach the level of what cissus can do for me. 3g/day and take 4g of fish oil everyday also.

    If you want something super amazing either stack it with or use BPC157 and TB500 (peptides) combined. I stack these 4 products and my joints feel amazing.

    I wouldn't recommend anything like prescription pain meds, but have you ever used kratom for pain relief?

    No I've not tried anything other than glucosamine as a multi so far. Starting 2 feel a bit better backed off the specific part of my shoulder that's hurting workouts, and the season is getting closer 2 being over so hopefully it will just slowly heal up

    Another thing that you can try out is voltaren gel. Go to your doctor and say its for your knees and shoulder so you get a lot of it for the same price as getting only one tube.

    They don't ask any questions and just write the prescription for it. My doctor is uber anal about things and he didn't even question it. An amazing product that has helped me out A LOT.

    LOL all my joints hurt!! Just keep going. If it gets that bad go to a doc and figure out what is causing it.

    Look into peptides Rdub. Specifically ghrp2, Ipamorelin, and cjc 1295. If you get some good peps to boost your GH you should get some rejuvination and pain relief. Also check out Peg MGF. Lots of pinning with peptides in general. But it might be worth it for a few months. Peg MGF might be your starting point. It's for repair and recovery. Not alot of pinning. But for GH increase and release. Check the other ones out.

    Wow it is like a prescription pharma up In here
    Take a week off.... Yes a week
    Take fish oil or glucosamine combo... Simple and cheap let's not get carried away.

    Also, ice yourself after heavy lifts...

    Don't lift heavy ALL the time....
