I find playing classical gets pretty difficult after working out, mostly because I still have the blood really pumping through my arms so precision and dynamics die a horrible horrible death. The muscles don't actually hurt because of it though...maybe try playing with a lighter touch.

i have no problems, and i hold bars with 200+ pounds on them.


I hold bars with 9000+ poinds on them.

But really, I lift a bit, and if anything it's made my playing better.

I lift weights alot while playing football and have never had any problems playing my guitar.

I've never had any problems from lifting. I've got a dodgy finger from being too hardcore on a rowing machine and a funked up knee from skipping. Skipping, of all things!

Skipping is quite a jolly activity.

I haven't had any trouble lifting and playing, if I am too tired though my playing might slip.

Ive never had a problem with it at all...

Damn straight. Skipping is the sport of the people, by the people, for the people. I just can't believe how much it's f*cked up my knee.

it could be because your not lifting correctly and really just causing alot of damage

Also, no. I exercise and play and it doesn't hamper me, if anything it helps me.

well i've been lifting for 2 years now, and been playing guitar for 4... it might been that i workout my wrists so that i overwork my muscles or it might be that after arm day i have leg day where im holding on to the dumbells with my arms as im working out so that im tearing the muscles for gripping 2 days in a row..

Wrist and hand/thumb pains will be because of tense grip when playing guitar, not weightlifting. Find the pressure points around your elbow, and massage them hard. It will hurt, but it's great for immediate relief of the pain in your wrist. Now, massage the muscle in between thumb and index finger. If it feels swollen, or if it's sore, stop playing guitar for a while. Carry on massaging these points, this should help any problems you are having (obviously providing it's nothing too serious). Relax when you play guitar, your grip should be soft, and none of your fingers, or your thumb on your left hand should be pressing.

Maybe strap a dumbbell onto your picking arm (like a 40 lb) and then try playing. That will make your picking better!


And your fapping.

i did get tendinitis in my wrist during lacrosse, and i haven't fully recovered yet. but i don't think its from when i was lifting though. but it doesn't damper my playing, it just hurts after i stop.
