Best Regimen for Strong Joints

Answered on October 09, 2013

Foods. Supplements. Exercise Programs. Medical Treatments.

What would you do, or what do you do, to have ultra strong joints? And I mean ultra strong - like, Wolverine-healing superpowers.

List each and every thing you'd consume/do/etc.

I'm interested in seeing what works for certain individuals.

When I said not too heavy I meant it should be a weight that you can perform with good form because if its too heavy you may be forced to use bad form which may cause irreparable damage to the joints

I mostly agree, but I have two things to add: 1. It should specify that it's Vitamin K2. Most people refer to Vitamin K1 as Vitamin K, which always irritates me, because there is a difference between K1 and K2 and we should be more specific. 2. I do not agree about the comment about "not too heavy that it puts stress on your joints". By definition, you have to put stress on your joints, because strengthening the joints is a process of adaptation in response to stress. And I would argue that generally, the heavier the better, because that would create the strongest joints.

After years of ALL kinds of supplements and vitamins not doing much, my panacea turned out to be the humble cup of daily bone broth.

Close chained excercises can not be stressed enough. I have moved from open chain weight lifting to 90% close chained and it has been a massive help with over all strength and stability, not to mention injury recovery and prevention.

Swimming is also great as you gain flexibility, stablility, and hit your joints from a different angle. Glucosamine Chondritin was recently proved to be a bunk and several companies are now being sued. So be sure to put your money towards the foods mentioned above versus sinking it into those supplement pills.

Vitamin A, D3, K2, and some calcium for bones (mainly to prevent loss of calcium from bones). I only supplement D3 and K2, everything else is from food.

Silicon supplementation for soft tissues involved in joints.

Someone beat me to the punch on the high quality rolling papers, I see..

Seriously though, bone broth. Rich in gelatin and glucosamine. If you make it with a chicken carcass, try and get some feet to through in there. They are VERY gelatonous.

In general, anti-inflammatory foods. O3-rich sources of PUFA (but not too much!).

I feel like I'm always telling people this...but eat your sardines!

I guess I would go with the box corner. but that's pretty tough. You may want to look at a dado or half-blind dovetail. Not quite a strong, but they look really good and will hold well.

I know a lot of people will push for the biscuit. But ultimately I have not had as much success, and they require specialized tools. Just not worth it in my mind. a stopped dado will look just as good and hold as well. Plus you can use offset or triple screws to strengthen.

Now if you are going to do it by hand, the best is going with the mortise and tennon. mitre and butt joins just will not do.

  1. A lot of high intensity strength training can help create stronger bones and joints. You want to make sure your lifting heavy but not too heavy that it puts stress on your joints. It should be with absolutely perfect form.

  2. In terms of food you should go for foods that are high in calcium such as Kale, Spinach and dairy foods if you can tolerate them. Yogurt is more easier to digest than milk. Make sure that you eat foods high in Vitamins A, D and K because they all play a role in the absorption of calcium . This is why most women have osteoarthritis when they get older because they cannot properly absorb the calcium. Egg shells are also a bio-available form of calcium. Simply blend it into a fine powder and mix it with some citrus juice like lemon juice to create calcium citrate which is more bio-available than calcium carbonate.

  3. I would recommend supplementing in cod liver oil as this has vitamin a, some vitamin d and omega 3's which will prevent joints from being inflamed which is a very common issue today. Good luck.

Isometric exercises. Wild salmon, sardines, anchovies and mackerel. Bone broth. Anti inflammatory herbs. Topical castor oil. Daily gentle stretching.

I'd eat vitamins AbcDK with a healthy diversification of animal and plant matter. Also I'd get that sol. Fiber and represent that healthy gut flora.
