One of the most common problems faced by athletes and those involved in weight training is muscle and tendonitis injuries, including:

  1. Neck Problems (pain, tension, tightness, stiffness)
  2. Shoulder Problems (rotator cuff injury, clicking/popping, A.C. joint pain, bicep tendonitis, scapula pain, weakness/instability)
  3. Elbow Problems (tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, triceps tendonitis)
  4. Forearm and Wrist Pain
  5. Back Pain (upper back and lower back)
  6. Knee Problems (quadriceps and patellar tendonitis, instability)
  7. Foot and Heel Pain

Traditional solutions relieve pain symptoms. They do not fix the root cause. As a result, the pain worsens as the athlete resumes training.

As someone who struggled with tendonitis injuries from weight training, Nurudeen realized the information available to athletes was fragmented and incomplete.

Nurudeen created the TitaniumPhysique Program to help athletes involved in strength training but struggle with muscle injury pain or tendonitis during exercise. Use this program to develop easy and effective practices that quickly bring relief to your workout routine.

    This is Nurudeen. Thank you for visiting my website.

    Whether you're just getting started or you've been lifting for a while and struggling to get the desired results, I know how you feel because I felt the same. I remember my first day in the gym. I looked around, saw others with the body I wanted, and thought, "Man, this is going to take forever… what if it just doesn't happen for me?"

    Below are 10 tips I used to produce results and transform my physique.

    Get Inspired and Educated

    Getting started, I read fitness and bodybuilding websites, blogs, books, and magazines. One of my favorite books was Arnold's Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding. This step both inspired and educated me on the topic of weight training.

    Learn Your Body Type

    I discovered my body type (Ectomorph). I determined the most effective training plan to allow me to build the physique I wanted (at the fastest rate possible). I used a 3-day training split.

    Learn Proper Lifting Technique

    I learned the proper weight lifting technique for different exercises on the Bodybuilding.com Exercise Finder Database. I practiced the "feeling the muscle" technique. I reviewed exercise tutorial videos before and after my workout (to determine if I performed each exercise correctly).

    Take Massive Action

    I researched and chose a training program. I believed in the program, put it to work, and stuck with it. I didn't say, "I will try it for 30 days and see if it works." I knew the results would come if I made a good-faith effort and stuck with it.

    Train Hard and Train Smart

    Training HARD — performing each set to muscle failure, progressively increasing weights, and power training. Training SMART — performing the correct number of sets and reps. I used an effective aerobics training strategy based on my body type.

    Find a Training Partner

    I found a training partner at my gym. Through friendly conversations, I discovered the goals and motivations of others at my gym. Once I found someone whose goals aligned with mine, I asked if they would like to train together. A training partner was critical at the beginning when every set and rep counted. It was essential to get spots on those power sets.

    Keep a Training Log

    Using the JEFIT Workout App, I tracked my workout routine – exercises, sets, reps, weights (lbs. lifted), lifting technique (good or bad), and resistance (too much or too little). Tracking your workout is one of the simplest things you can do to make progress and get results faster.

    Envision Success

    Before each workout, I would prepare my mind to focus on the workout by spending 10-20 minutes warming up, stretching, meditating, and visualizing having the best workout EVER. On my phone, I saved photos of my favorite bodybuilders (Arnold, Shawn Ray, Frank Zane). When I felt tired and wanted to give up, I would look at their photos for motivation.

    Learn Proper Nutrition & Avoid Fad Diets

    About a month into my training, I began learning about nutrition. The key to good nutrition when building a physique is sustainability. It's best to avoid fad diets such as "zero carb" or "zero protein" diets.

    Never Stop Learning

    Once I started progressing in gaining muscles, I learned different intensity training techniques (e.g., Super-set, Tri-set, Four-pump, Drop set), allowing me to continue building my physique and overcome plateaus. Continual learning is vital to make and keep progress.


    Over the years of weight lifting, I experienced several injuries: neck pain, elbow pain (elbow tendonitis), shoulder pain (rotator cuff injury), forearm and wrist pain, back pain, knee pain (knee tendonitis), foot pain (Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis).

    After years of using conventional remedies and solutions (joint vitamins, joint supplements, painkillers, workout braces, joint straps, and sleeves), I became disappointed because they were ineffective. When I sought the help of medical professionals, they routinely offered me incomplete information and generic advice like 'ice and rest it,' 'painkillers,' and 'physical therapy.'

      Out of frustration and the fear of giving up my passion for weight training, I decided to solve this problem for myself. I've spent the last five years studying scientific research relating to tendinopathy, sports medicine, sports injury, weight lifting injuries, musculoskeletal pain treatment and management, nutrition, supplementation, and strength therapy and conditioning.

      Through my research, I created the TitaniumPhysique System. This simple 3-step approach helped me eliminate muscle and tendonitis injuries affecting my workouts. Using this system, I've eliminated chronic pain from working out, including shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist, upper and lower back, knee, and foot pain.
