i'm 35, and never taken anything stronger than a flinstone vitamin. recently joints and cartalidge have led to injuries(herniated disk among others). my docter believes cigarettes are at least partially to blame.
i have not worked out in over ten years, and would like to start. my cholesterol levels are high, and i fear what might happen if i do start using supplements. the pain from recovery is an issue as well.
what do you suggest a person in my situation do to get back to tossing heavies around. keep in mind that my goal is to build lean body mass with healthy ligaments, tendons and cartilidge, without destroying my liver or kidneys.

eating properly would be a start, good multivitamin would be about the only thing I would consider necessary

exercising regularly, keep the weights reasonable with perfect form and allow enough time to recover, your ligaments will need some time to keep up with your muscles so be careful

you've got to start, that is the most important thing, don't worry about drugs

Great advice!!

For cyclists, we work on a low intensity base for a couple of months before we start to hammer and do high intensity work. This gives our bodies time to adapt and prevent us getting injured.

You do not want to go from sedentary to heavy lifting and aas. IMO, its a formula for trouble.

When you get back to the gymn, you may have to swallow your pride and lift light for awhile.

Maybe you might want to have a complete blood work assessment in order to check your levels of testosterone, LH, FSH, prolactin, estradiol, IGF-1, etc.

As for exercise training I think you need some light-to-moderate weights and cardio (for at least 12 weeks before starting manipulating higher intensities), stretching and healthy eating (for life).

ditto zig, big ditto

i call it the "gettin 35 syndrome"

no body told me about every 3 weeks or so i'd be waking up with aches and pains that might last an hour or 3 days, it's like casino craps, all in all i'm in great shape, yet this never happened before

you're test is starting to slowly decline rather than rise, in general that's the bell curve for you, so you start to see some changes

just take it slow and stay commited, you'll fall off the horse maybe, or maybe not, just keep trying, takes awhile to build back up the habit, hard part is gettin the mind set of finding the time and sticking to that new time frame, it might take a few tries, so keep at

been liftin long time, and that 35 thing hit me, 47 and still doin great though

one of the funny things is you meet folks wherever and they find out your age and they all say, "oh, you must have a great metabolism"

no one ever says, hmmmm bet you've been training and watching nutriton for decades

who cares, i feel great and that's the payoff

Don't worry about your liver and kidneys bro, you're heart and lungs will give out long before thanks to the cigarettes.

liftsiron is a fictional character and should be taken as such.

Well said, quit it before it's too late, sorry.

I'd have a thorough check-up with your Dr. first before doing anything. I found out recently I have a low thyroid out-put. I've been living with aches and pains and mild chronic depression for years and just attributed to "getting old." (I'm 49)
Within just a couple of days of starting therapy, it was all gone. There's so many things that can screw up that I would make sure there's no underlying medical problems and then start with the basics.

what you are looking for is a quick fix......ask our friends here...they have been working out for more than 5 years, some more than 15 years. There is no quick fix, the HGH just going to make you have acromagli or other problem, I think what you should consider is the attitude toward your life right now. like what do I want to achieve the next 5 years...10 years....knowing that there is no short cut in life, and re-live and enjoy your life day to day and not the whole 10 years or so that you have lost.

make a target, and go for it, little at the time. and that little start from our mind...the way we think.

Can hormone replacement eliminate the aches and pains making a 35 yr old feel 25 again?

Sometimes chronic muscle aches and pains are symptoms of fibromyalgia, a reumatologist should be consulted for a more accurate diagnosis.

==============================

Bennett R. Growth hormone in musculoskeletal pain states. Curr Pain Headache Rep. 2005;9(5):331-8.

ABSTRACT

Growth hormone is essential for normal linear growth and the attainment of an adult mature height. It also plays an important role in cartilage growth and the attainment of normal bone mass. There is only one rheumatic disorder, namely acromegaly, in which abnormalities of growth hormone production play a major etiologic role. However, there is increasing appreciation that suboptimal growth hormone secretion, leading to a state of adult growth hormone deficiency, may occur in the setting of chronic inflammatory disease, chronic corticosteroid use, and fibromyalgia. Therefore, the evaluation and effective management of growth hormone oversecretion and undersecretion is relevant to practicing rheumatologists.
