“I’m More Prone to Feeling Tender”: Sam Sulek Reasons Him Bulking Up Is Directly Proportional to His Joint Health

Bodybuilders such as Greg Doucette have bashed him for using steroids, and even netizens often think that he might not be able to do bodybuilding for a long time if he continues like this.

On a similar note, the rising social media bodybuilding star talked about his bulking-up process, and how his joints remain healthy because of it. Sulek shared, “So when I’m fully bulked, my joints love it. It is almost impossible for me to get tender knees. Unless I squat upwards, of five plates. And that same thing for my elbows on pushdowns.”

He also admitted that he realized how his joints behave when he is cutting down. The young bodybuilder said, “So when I am cutting down I can tell, I’m more prone to like feeling tender. I think that is kind of why I have been doing more slow and controlled sets as the openers rather than just trying to load up as much weight as possible. Just so it feels a little better on my connective tissue that is.”

Sam Sulek also proved his smartness and levelheaded decision-making, when it came to his training routine and life in general.
