I thought this would be a good thread to discuss the special challenges that we over 40 lifters face.
Personally, I have been fortunate over all as I eat healthy and have taken special nutrients for many years I think that has helped my situation.
However, I have noticed that I am getting some sort of tendonitis at the base of my thumbs. They hurt the day after an especially hard workout. MSM always seems to help when I add it the over 30 different supplements that I take. I also think that cross training has helped me. I will bike or practice martial arts exclusively for periods of time, instead of lifting.
Other than that I'm holding out fine-Doing more in most of my lifts than I have ever done before!
How about the rest of you over 40 lifters? Do you have any special health secrets you want to pass on? Any special routines? Any particular physical ailment you want to discuss?
