    Default Default Working out 7 days a week- Joint Pain

    My muscles can handle working out 14 days but my joints just can't. Everytime I plan on hitting it hard (like everyone else here) after the 2nd day I just have to take a day off- my knees, back, shoulders and elbows are just burnt.

    I'm alternating between KB's and bodyweight exercises and even doing a day of yoga and superjoints here and there but the most I can do anymore is 3 days on before I need a day off. I've even alternated upper and lower body BUT when I do that it's my lower back that's sore because it's still working on both days.

    Has anyone else had this problem and what did you do about it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Muscles, connective tissues (joints), CNS, all recover - but usually at a different rate. Which is why recovery is important. Sore muscles most of the time are of no concern as long as you are not debilitated by them. Sore connective tissue and joints are a different concern. Muscles can usually develop faster than what the joints can handle. And as a result if the joints are not allowed to rest and recuperate sufficiently you can get injured. The cns also needs recovery. If not, performance will suffer sometimes drastically. So monitoring muscle soreness, joint soreness/pain and cns fatigue is all part of the package. Not just the muscles, but everything - and that would include your mental toughness and state of mind...Dennis

    Poor kettlebell technique or programming would also contribute to your pains. Maybe too much "stuff" going on in your program(s)? If so, review what you are doing and make changes that make you better and will not tear you down. The thought should be- "what I am doing - will it make me better?.. Or is my ego driving me and tearing me down?"...Dennis

    That! Long hard lesson for me. Search out and read Dan John's Easy Strength and Even Easier Strength blog posts. Often less is more. For the past many months I have programmed my training so that I can work it daily without detriment. That means, pacing it for the slowest to recover tissues. I don't have a contest I need to win or a fight I am scheduled to be in so my goals are all about health and longevity. I figure strong connective tissue and joint integrity are #1 on the list. I started doing Dan's Even Easier Strength 40 day program but sort of started having a love affair with loaded carries. Designed my own program to do for couple months before going back. I'm using all loadable dumbbell handles. All carries are 1 minute. Increase weight for TGU's when easy to do in 10 minutes. Increase carry weight when no grunt for the duration:

    •10 TGU's alternating sides
    •3 "Butler carries" i.e. hold dumbbell in front of me, elbows tucked against ribs, forearms near horizontal or just above that
    •4 Suitcase carries alternating sides
    •2 Farmer's carries
    • Finisher--1 minute dead hang from bar

    About 2 weeks in and grip very noticeably stronger, posture much better, overall feel more connected and parts tied together, and I think, small hypertrophy in traps and arms.

    Prior to I was doing an alactic kb snatch program

    Cardio is mostly long walks w/ poles i.e. Nordic walking.
