Can subchondral sclerosis be slowed down?
Osteoarthritis to consider.
Subchondal sclerosis is mainly a feature of the osteoarthritis, relation with conditions such ankylosing spondyloarthopatjies is uncommon.
It is considered as a condition of ages older than yours in most of the cases, but rarely it can be encountered in younger ages too.
Genetics play a role as one of the risk factors for subchondral sclerosis and eventually osteoarthritis.
Since you are asymptomatic, slowing of the progression includes losing weight ( if you are overweight ), physical therapy, swimming, use of simple anti-inflammatory drugs such ibuprofen in case of pain, unloading affected joints.
Follow up with your Doctor.

You should be more careful now.
It is not necessary to limit the most of the training, you only should be careful in weights loading on your articulations to prevent further cartilage damage.
If any symptoms that may point to osteoarthritis appear, then switch to other sports activities such as swimming, for example, may be necessary.
Hope I have answered your query.
