Initial Joint Stress
I am in the middle of week 3 of 9 in the 'Strength by Feel' cycle and my knees, elbows and shoulders feel like they're falling apart. I have been doing powerlifting the last year so all lifts were slow. No that I have been subjecting myself to an accelerated style of squatting, jerking and pressing my joints are sore.
So I guess my question is: Is this normal when starting out or am I just bing a pu$$y? And if so will it subside by week 5 or 6?
It's not affecting the weight I can lift, only my recovery between sessions.
It's normal. Ice, other anti-inflammatory practices (e.g. limit pro-inflammatory foods).
Because you're presumably coming into it very strong, you may find that you need to back off the weight/volume a bit and come back more gradually. Sounds like you jumped in head first, so you're going to feel more beat up.
