    How often do you work out? Is the arthritis only in your wrist?

    You can increase the interval between each weight lifting session for a longer rest period if you don't want to reduce the weights you use. If you work out everyday, workout every other day and so on.

    Also you can take supplements like glucosamine and chondritin together for joint health improvement. It won't solve your arthritis, but it will help you more.

    Definitely don't stop working out. Stronger muscles will help in joint mobility and range of motion. If it's mainly in your wrists, you can switch to cardio exercises where you use your lower body more. They are equally beneficial in helping to maintain stronger muscles.

    This is very much on the money. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my spine about two years ago...but I'm 64, so it's not something I wouldn't have expected for my age. It IS quite painful, nonetheless. I take a supplement similar to the one commoncoll describes, but it includes MSM.
    Full content is MSM/Gloucosamine/Chondroitin.

    I did a lot of research on the combination of these supplements when I started taking it. One thing that I learned is that it is VERY difficult to find a supplement maker who has the actual dosage of Gloucosamine in the tablets.
    They put it on the label...but most likely it's really not there.
    I have received great results from using this supplement.

    My mother has rheumatoid she was diagnosed in her mid 40's she was a cosmetologist The diagnoses ended her career. I always worried about getting it. Then in 2008 I was diagnosed with MS so now I worry about it on top of this.

    Care to actually name the maker?

    To the original poster, check out isometrics, still muscle tensioning, but less joint movement.
