When it comes to supplementation, the first thing comes to everybody's mind is protein powder, because protein is the number one thing our muscles need in order to grow after a weight workout. On the contrary, people often forget that just like muscles, joints and ligaments also need certain nutrients to work properly.

Weightlifting – or any sport besides maybe chess – causes wear and tear in our joints and ligaments. With proper technique and good training, joint damage can be minimized of course, but it can’t be eliminated.

In fact, these body parts are in danger every time you step into the gym. We tend to think that if it doesn’t hurt, then it won’t, but I can assure you that it can and it will – unless you give them what they need.

Without further ado, these are the main ingredients you need to provide to your joints and ligaments

  • Glucosamine sulfate
  • Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
  • Calcium
  • Hydrolyzed gelatin
  • Chondroitin sulfate
  • Vitamin-C
  • Hydrolyzed Chicken Sternal Type II Collagen
  • Curcumin

Did you know that resistance training can also strengthen your joints and ligaments? This sounds a bit contradictory, but it's true. Training can be even beneficial to people suffering from chronic joint pain, but only if you nourish them with at least three of the nutrients mentioned above.

So the first thing you must do to prevent joint pain is to learn how to train with proper form. The second thing you need to do is to avoid heavy weights, and the third is to use supplementation. Well, we can obey two of these rules, but we most certainly can't avoid using heavy weights in the gym (every weight people can't lift without training should be considered as heavy, even a 50 kg bench press, not to talk about 100 kg bench presses).

There's no way around it: you have to take joint support supplements to prevent joint pain, joint stiffness and to fight against natural ageing processes.

Keep in mind that joints have a very slow metabolism, so if you start taking a supplement today (we strongly recommend you do), you will start to feel their benefits in about three months.

It is much better to prevent pain than waiting for it to set in. But if you already have pain in your joints, you should stop exercising and start using supplementation immediately.

Other useful tips to aid your joints:

  • if your job involves a lot of sitting, try to stand up and walk a bit every 60 minutes
  • quit smoking
  • swim – aquatic exercises can help maintain flexibility and range of motion
  • when training, always keep proper form
  • you can lift heavy weights, but when you do, use extra protection
