New PRs, Supplements and Water Weight

So yesterday I started a new cycle of creatine AND I hit a new PR on deadlift! So did Candy! YAY! ūüôā

Of course, along with the new PR came about 2 pounds of water weight. haha

While I do think creatine is the reason for the weight gain, I don’t really think the creatine had any influence on yesterday’s lift¬†since I just started it again. BUT hopefully it will help me gain a bit more strength over the next couple of weeks!

I like creatine…it is worth spending a bit of extra cash on…every once in a while.

BUT what is worth spending money on CONSTANTLY is glucosamine/chondroitin. I started having a bit of knee pain from all the spin I’d been teaching (along with all the super heavy lifting) so I decided it was time to give a joint health supplement a shot.

A glucosamine supplement should improve your joint health since glucosamine is a precursor for glycosaminoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans are a major component of joint cartilage. SO supplemental glucosamine may help to prevent cartilage degeneration and treat arthritis!

And let me tell you something amazing about the glucosamine/chondroitin supplement I took…I¬†haven’t had¬†ANY…I repeat ANY knee pain since!

YES!

So if you have some knee problems, give a glucosamine¬†chondroitin supplement a shot. It isn’t a miracle pill but it DEFINITELY helped me!

Also, here is our wonderful workout from yesterday!
