    I have been having issues with Arm Faitgue. Muscles and Tendons just getting to tired when rolling and exercising. Fighting bad Tendonitis. If it wasn't for GLC I probably couldn't roll at all. Same issue with knee joints. Any advice.

    I get the same thing. I have tendonitis in my left elbow and after a long class my elbows are very fatigued and it makes my whole arm weak. It would get so sore that i would be unable to fully straighten my arms when doing stuff at the gym like chest and tricep stuff.

    I had acupuncture done on it at this Chinese medicine place a few months ago and the pain went away completely for a few weeks. It has since come back, but it's not nearly as bad as it used to be. Maybe have a look into doing that, it was only $30 for me - well worth it. The acupuncture doesn't hurt or anything.

    try supplementing with cissus quadrangularis, its for strengthening tendons & bone. I have tendonitis in my wrist & elbow, I've been using it for a few months & it made a big difference. The stuff I have is from USP Labs.

    Eat something light before hand. Like a pbj about an hour before. Take the rest you need, because that will only help. If you keep grappling without rest you will become very tired and fatigue. To be scared to take a 5 minute break while your peers are grappling. We are all human.

    Try a protein shake after workouts and see who that works out.
