I rub my forearms and back of hands down with a heat rub about an hour before. I use new strings and spray a 'very' light mist of silicone on the fret board about 20 minutes before. I warm up for 15 minutes by playing stretched scales and chords to get my forearm muscles loosened up. Last, I take a 5 minute break just before playing.

Becoming vintage should make us worth more over time :bow:

Dropping any products containing sodium flourite will enable your pineal gland to function properly, which is essential for regenerating cells during sleep.
Also, sun gazing works very well on the eyes - but make sure to search out the Indian guru on this; just do some searching on youtube and you'll find his one hour description video.
And don't bother about those stating they could drop foods after three month..
I'm short sighted, and doing this for a year reduced my short sight.

Else, WRT getting old, I feel this in my feet. with lack of training, I get water in them; no biggie, just a matter of training.
Oh, and while young chicks do smile in my direction, I can't seem to get 'em home.. :nono:
(thinking of Fritz the Cat: mmnn.. three at a time is a kick I haven't tried)

Couple of points to tensions..

Stress in life, job-wise, lack of sleep/rest, or in private, like family or financials, can drag a lot of energy off the system.
I've seen ever so often, on myself and others, that when stress do kick-in, many seem to drop their guards WRT proper foods and as such, keeping the correct vitamin and mineral balance, and proper lubrication.
Are you aware that joints and nerves need oils? Salads with cold-pressed virgin olive oil is a must-have.

I read many doing training, but are you doing proper warm up, not just before the training, but also before playing, and are you doing proper flexing/stretching after?

Whatever, there can be many reasons to loosing strength. Acupuncture can be very helpful; I've used it for close to 30 years with good results.

Best of luck with recovery and preventive measures ;)

oh ! Gerry,  I also forgot... guitar strap is quite important. A confortable one makes a real difference !

So you should choose one that matches your leather trousers  ;D

Yeah, I get that too. Sometimes my ring finger just gets weak and I struggle to even make barre chords. I think I've identified one of my problems is holding my god damn smart phone and an Xbox controller too much. I think I'm actually causing muscle stiffness and poor muscle memory. My sister is a physical therapist and she has me stretching my hands and fingers daily with some Bengay cream to loosen the muscles.
Another thing I've been doing I learned from a Joe Satriani interview.... about 10 minutes before you are going to play, run your hands and forearms under hot water in the sink. Do this for about 3-5 minutes.

Great advice  :thumb-up:  I thought that hot water trick was just something I did....didn't realize others were doing it too. I started that when riding my motorcycle to work in the winter....I'd go run hot water over my hands before working on the computer.

I use a pen tool and graphic tablet because the constant repetitive motion of the mouse button was too painful - I developed tennis elbow(s). This hurts my forearms very much if I don't stretch first (thought I had carpal tunnel).

I had something similar, mostly when trying to fret barré chords after 7/8 of any given set.
I also hit the gym on a daily basis, min of 1 1/2 hrs. But seriously, of all body muscle groups addressed throughout the week, finger muscles and tendons get zip attention when lifting weights.
My issue got solved by accident...I bought a guitar with an ever so slight backbow in the neck that I couldn't get rid of with the truss rod. So I thought what the heck and strung it up with a set of 11-50 in standard tuning.
The neck is flat again and the truss rod works...and after 2 weeks of getting accustomed to the higher tension strings (really working out fretting and fingers) the issues are gone. I also wouldn't wanna go back to a lighter gauge.
Try D'Addario 11-50 Balanced Tension (EXL115BT), worked miracles for me
