Er... high CPK levels are normal for weight-trainers. Weight lifting damages the muscles mate, hence the elevated CPK. Rest, nutrition and hydration are the key. Pain in wrists, elbows and shoulders indicates poor form to me, and nothing to do with muscle injury (though the shoulder pain could be rotator cuff injury etc. - not enough info).

Get some glucosamine, chondroitin, mega cissus. Take lots of vits and mins, at least 1g vit c a day and lots of protein, carbs and healthy fats.

Ignore the CPK reading and research tendon / joint injuries mate.

Hi, Injured my ligaments in a wrist extensors to the ulna 4 weeks before my first cycle, the doc said no weights for 10 weeks and no pressing for 12 at least, I did 3 weeks no upper body just front squats and leg isolation, drove me mad went on cycle and gained well and wrist is ok but still niggles, I hurt it putting a dumbell back in rack caught it on something then bang done, but I was boxing before hand I think that did it.

I think I should rest as still cant do upright rows but that is no bad thing.

I now supplement with omega 3 and heard great things about cissus
