Dont know if this is the right section?

Just wondered if joint pain could be caused from having a low body fat % and lifting heavy? I seem to get a lot more niggles and they are more persistent since I cut to 90kgs than when I lifted at 100kgs. This may be a coincidence. Would fattening myself up a bit lubricate the joints better/give extra padding?

I dont know if this sounds daft or not. I just wanted to get as many peoples opinions as possible.

Oh, I eat oily fish at least 3 times per week and take fish oils and glucosamine as well as a couple of teaspoons of olive oil per day in my shakes. So I think I have that side of things covered.

I think this should only be a problem if your bodyfat is super super low dude.

Thanks Carl lol Thats what I thought Weigieboard. I dont know what my bodyfat % is. I do think it is low for a powerlifter though. I am naturally ectomorphic ie long limbed and small joints. To get up to 100kgs I had to eat all the time and it felt unnatural being so heavy. But if going up in weight would help then I would do it.
