Support Your Joints

It's true bodybuilders, powerlfiters and others involved 
in athletics cause a lot of stress, wear and tear on 
their joints.

Each and every workout you do subjects your joints and 
tendons to the work load volume of tons of w eight along 
with the wear and tear of stretching and contracting over 
and over again.

Today millions of people have joint disorders.

Joint supplements can aid in joint and connective tissue 
health and repair.

If you have been training hard for years, joint 
supplements can really make a big difference.

Even younger trainers should use joint support supplements 
to prevent future joint problems.

Knee Pain from Squats
Recovery and Treatment

Squats are meant to hurt, but they supposed to hurt your muscles not your knees. There are various kinds of pain that you can get from squatting but instead of explaining the reasons for a little rest and recuperation and taking supplements to speed up recuperation and reduce inflammation, we've decided to list a few tips that will stop this knee pain from happening in the first place. For advanced lifters this may seem a bit obvious but when you're squatting you should NEVER go past 90 degrees. That means when you squat down your butt should never get lower than your knees. Your quads and hamstrings need to lift the weight not your knees. When you squat you should simply be sitting down, many beginners lean too far forward when squatting. This puts more pressure on your internal organs as well as your knees. Stand upright and then sit down, it's a good idea to take a look at your profile before you squat down to check that you're not leaning too far forward. Your feet need to be pointed straight forward as well, pointing them inwards or outwards too far will only put more stress on your tendons. It is vitally important to stretch correctly before you start squatting with a weight. Your knee tendons and internal cartilages need to be warmed up before they take any serious weight. Recent studies have now conclusively shown that smoking cigarettes will damage your joints. It damages the internal strength of your joints and will invariably cause minute stress fracture that gets worse with age. The knee pain you feel might also be Osteoarthritis; it is strongly recommended that you get a doctor to check the cause. If you got knee pain then there is a good chance that you're carrying too much weight and you should seriously consider losing more weight. It could dramatically improve your knee pain over time. The last point that needs serious consideration is your rest days. You need to make certain that you are not squatting more than twice a week if you got pain in your knees reduce to once a week.
