    Healing slower

    I'm healing at a rate 2x slow as I was in my 20's. Joints are the main problem. Have to wait 3 days sometimes to workout the same muscle group, when I used to do it every day all week and rest on Saturday and Sunday.

    This is bull****.

    Getting old sucks. But I hear it beats the alternative.

    It really does beat the alternative. I tried that and it really sucked, so i'm back. As far a healing slow, I hear that. It takes me 10 minutes in the morning to stand up straight, but I do notice that when I get sick and can not lift I seem to feel even worse.

    I'm 52 and starting lifting 13 months ago after a 20 year layoff. Tried doing the same setsxreps that I did 20 years ago and my joints would ache for days. My shoulders ached 7 days a week. So I cut back on the weight and did sets of 12 to 20. None of the heavy sets of 6 or 8. Just moderate weight so that I'm still coming close to failure between 18-20 reps.

    I'm 45, been lifting for almost 6 yrs. My elbows and shoulders have been hurting more than normal lately. I have recently switched from 6-8 reps to 12 reps to try and get some relief.

    Nah Psyops doesn't work on me.
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.
