      Iím getting ready to turn 49 in the spring and it sucks. I train with a guy who is 20 years younger than me and sometimes I forget my joints canít do the shit he sometimes thinks of. I tried doing these side laterals he wanted to do where you start palms up with your arms at your side and as you raise your arms you rotate your hands u til you finish with palms down over your head. Huge mistake. My shoulder has been killing me for weeks. Itís slowly getting better but I had to skip shoulders and cut down my range on alll pressing moves to not make it worse. On the plus side it is making me keep my form real strict on my benching to try and minimize delts and focus on chest. It has also caused me to drop my elbows some(almost 45 degrees from the bar) as that lessens the pain as well.
      My tricep tear from two summers ago still isnít fully healed and is still down about 30% compared to the other arm. Strength is coming back but that is still down by about 30% as well.

      I wish I was rich and could afford PRP or stem cells

      full military career in combat arms and bodybuilding on top of that for over 20. so finding ways to train and compete still without being crippled is a task in itself. i have stayed hurt pretty much all year long this past year and it sucked ass. i have found that working on recovery stuff and a little mobility stuff goes a hell of a long way. that and using equiblock on my joints and areas that need focus before training is a life saver. cryotherapy at least 1x per week and graston work every 3 weeks. that seems to be a pretty good key to keeping me as healthy as possible

      Wow that's crazy man, definitely getting older does suck as it becomes like impossible to do the stuff you did when way younger.

      I feel the pain too. In my 40s and grinding in the gym for the past 20 something years. I'm slowly starting to realize I shouldn't do the things I did when I was in my 20s. I'm not yet at the point where I can't do them, but I know I shouldn't lol.

      Not to mention our bodies start to fail, went to the eye doc yesterday. Thought I needed new glasses because I cannot see very well. Nope prescription has not changed.

      Cataracts! That is an old person disease!

      Yep I also have early stage cataracts myself but eye doc told me that I may be lucky to not need cataract surgery for another 10 years or so as my case it's very slow progression.
