While working out, I've very often felt pain in my wrists, knees and elbows. I'm wondering if there are any supplements which are proven to be helpful to strengthen the joints and tendons, so I don't hurt myself. I'm especially afraid for my wrists.

I've already looked into omega 3 and turmeric, but it only seems to be omega 3 which is proven to be effective. I'm looking for something in addition to omega 3.

Also, of course, correct execution of the movements when doing resistance training is the most important, in combination with restitution ^^

Do you have an underlying condition that you know of? If not, when did you start having this? Does it last beyond the session, ever get it in rest? etc.. gimme some details boye

Joint pain in clinical setting is usually relieved with intra-articular injections of NSAIDS or simply by treating the underlying condition, but if yours is non-pathological than that would obviously be overkill.

No condition. I've always had some pain in the joints I mentioned while doing resistance training. It got so bad in my wrists at one point (this is years ago now, maybe 3 years) that I had to quit working out completely because I couldn't hold any weights. Even biking was painful because of the shaking of the handlebar. I lost motivation, stopped working out and the pain gradually faded over a couple months.

I've now returned to working out, and I'm hoping to be able to prevent pain in the joints. I've felt slight pains in the 3 joints mentioned during sessions, lasting a bit after the workout is done, maybe an hour. I don't get it during rest. My workouts now have been very light, as I'm just starting out. I'm focusing on proper execution and slow movements to prevent any pain or damage.

This is definitely a very odd presentation of symptoms, have you ever seen a rheumatologist for this?

I think the first step before you get diagnosed over the internet is seeing your GP which knows your background and is qualified. They will refer you to a specialist if need be.
In the mean while take a look at Glucosamine and fish oil

I agree it's odd. I've not seen a specialist about it yet, but I'll visit my doctor if it doesn't get better with time and rest. I intend to light exercise for a couple of weeks and see how my body reacts ^^

Will do some research on the glucosamine! Have started taking fish oil supplement now, hoping it makes a difference. At least it can't make it any worse haha. Didn't write this to get any diagnosis, but I'll visit the doctor if need be :D

I take glucosamine, chondroitin, and msm combined in one. In addition to fish oil. I also take a prescription NSAID but I believe thats beyond the scope of this thread.

A small update: Been working out 5-6 times a week since last comment. Been using fish oil supplement, sleeping more than 8 hours avg and doing 20 minutes cardio + warm up sets. I don't feel pain anymore during work outs, but sometimes slight discomforts. I think the joints are trying to get used to heavy load, so should be normal discomfort?

Apart from that, sometimes minor discomfort in knee joints when walking stairs. All in all I'm happy, as I get to work out for health benefits, having fun and of course the muscle gains :)

Whats your weight currently sitting at? can somethings be a problem when you are heavier either overweight or to much muscle.

I would take a slow and steady approach to loading up and start with a basic program with light weight and get your form completely down

Actually hit my highest weight today, 79kg :D Been quite skinny most my life. Haven't measured body fat percentage, but probably at 15% based on comparing myself to internet pictures. Doing a fairly simple program now involving most compound movements and the popular ones, doing 3-4 sets of 12-15 reps.

Try fish oil , glucosamine/chondrotin , tumeric (for inflam purposes) , shark cartilage . Good sleep , clean diet , straps on those joints whilst lifting and ample rest :) hope you make heaps of gains man! :)

Maybe sounds stupid but i had kind of the same problems in the past. However you have it while training i felt it when dealing with daily things like cooking (picking up the pan)
or putting my shoes on for example and opening a door-lock. They said keep moving and train slowly, for me it only went from bad to worse.
I've tried Omega 3 as well, it didn't work. I also tried low-carbohydrate diet and yes it did worked but it takes a while to get used to it, switching back made it from bad to worse
again. Several vitamins, they also tested me for rheumatism they said it was nothing like it. Now i am using CBD oil and CBD Balm if some joints or tendons hurt.
I don't ask you to try it because it's still some sort of a drug in certain regions but it worked for me (i now use it for over a year 1 year and 2 months now).
