Now that you know continuing to lift in the presence of joint discomfort is a no-go, we can move along to actionable steps you can take to continue to train hard while avoiding pissing off an inflamed joint. First, let me state that when it comes to healing joint pain or any actual “fixing” of injuries, I’m not your guy. I like to stay in my lane and defer to an orthopedist or physical therapist when my clients/readers approach me about injuries. If you have something that isn’t getting better, go see one of these professionals.
What I’ve had success with over the years is guiding trainees in choosing exercises that allow them to lift around nagging joint issues so they can allow those issues to properly heal.
