    Hi Steve,

    thanks for the post, ok so looking at you and Vas, one can see that you are both very strong, so my question is when you started working on your strength did you find that you were stiff or ached a lot, I am finding that I am, I drink 3-4 litres of fluids a day, plus take Dioralite for hydration and still find after a good weights session that I ache, I have a personal trainer and for the most, he adapts how he trains me to my diving and so was wondering what you thought.

    thanks

      Hi Neville, I guess some aches and pains are fairly normal after a strength workout. I used to have more issues only doing weights many years ago, since CrossFit style training now I guess my core is a lot stronger and doing more gymnastics and bodyweight exercises. I found this definitely improves the ache less and get stronger in all areas etc. I think maybe you should seek advice on your entire diet and take cod liver oil and anything than get help with lubricating your joints. It sounds like you drink quite a lot of water. Regards, Steve
