Weightlifting has been a hobby of mine for quite sometime. I have basically been lifting since the age of 14 on and off. Whenever I start seeing some good results and I am into the groove of going to the gym and eating right, it seems I always get hurt/sick and I have to take time off. Recently (6 months ago) I was in a great groove of going to the gym at least 4 times a week for a couple of months, I was at my peak of deadlift, benchpress, and squats. All of a sudden out of nowhere I started getting some Aches in my joints. 1st it was my knee, so the doctor told me to lay off squats, then it was my wrists and forearms. This affected alot of exercises especially my benchpress, millitary press considerably. I started using wrist wraps, which helped a little but not alot. My wrists would hurt so bad that I could no longer do straight barbell curls at all. I found myself not being motavated from not being able to do my favorite exercises, so I took about two months off hoping my "injuries" would heal. 2 months later I am back at the gym and although I feel a little better, I think as though everyday I go to the gym, my wrists, knees, and even my ankles now are progressively starting to bother me again. What the hell!!! I am getting fat, losing strength, and turning into a disgusting mess because of this. Does anyone have opinions? A little about me, I am 28 years old, 6 foot 1, 230 lbs. I know for a fact I dont over train since I am too lazy to ever do anything of the sort. I am only at the gym for 45 minutes durring my workouts. I usually start with 10 minutes on the treadmill, 10 minutes of abs and 25 minutes of freeweights give or take a couple of minutes, medium intensity. I usually do 3-4 sets of 5 ot 6 exercises and spit up my routine as follows: Day 1 chest day 2 rest day 3 back/shoulders day 4 rest day 5 triceps/biceps day 6 legs day 7 rest I am not training to be Mr. Olympia or to be a male model, simply to just feel good, be strong and look decent in a T-shirt. Thanks in advance.
