Title: Supplements for muscle and joint soreness
Post by: MTL76 on September 01, 2017, 05:36:31 PM
I know about drinking lots of water and stretching, and I do that... but I'm getting old.

Any supplements you guys take for post-workout DOMS?

Magnesium? Tumeric? Ginger? Cinnamon?

Guy think about what you do and think about who you're asking

I'm sick of Western medicine. I'm going full holistic. Cupping, smudge sticks, the whole nine yards.

I don't think you're old but here's a few suggestions and a question

1 - non-natural deca is certainly the answer, but I doubt that's an option

So, having said that here's the question: how much mobility work and stretching are you doing? In your 20's you can get away with doing less but in your 30's onards it makes a huge difference in your performance. Have a youtube look at Joe DeFranco's limber 8 and limber 11 for great myofascial work and stretching. Check out Jeff Cavaliere as well.

2 - Supplements

1: Fish oil - joint health. Joint lubrication. Overall health and cheap

2: Haven't had the chance to use it - although I'm dying to - Turmeric has gotten GREAT reviews from people I respect. As always make sure you check consumer reports and great resources t o see which companies are producing the most bioavailable and top supps.

3: Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM :   This really really works. It's a bit of long game but MSM helps with pain and inflammation while the others have track records of reconstructing tissue to a small degree. Absolutely worth it

4 - Not remotely related but I've been dieting HARD lately and I'm using digestive enzymes and getting great results overall. Overall inflammation is down, supplements are digested well and it's helping and then some. I recommend a good probiotic as part of any supplement stack.

After age 25 everything becomes harder to digest and no supplement is efficient if you can't digest it, so I'd recommend it.

If you want to have a stack written down

Pro-biotic
Glucosamine with MSM
Turmeric
Fish oil

add in mobility work - you'll do great and feel like a million dollars

I already do a lot of stretching and hydration. Will give fish oil and turmeric a try.

One thing I'm doing that's helping with pain is identifying muscle imbalances. I've been training injured but after some observation, I noticed its very serious anterior pelvic tilt with spinal lordosis. By working hard on the muscles that are pulling on undesirable places I'm feeling a LOT more free during training and presenting more serious stuff

Most guys who squat heavy (I know you do) seem to have some hip or other kind of flexibility issues. Take it for what its worth.

As for the rest - turmeric is awesome from everyone I've heard and fish oil works for me so good on you. Let me know how it works out, I think you'll be pleased. -
