I don't see why 44 is "too old". Sure, you won't be like the 20's guys - but Oly lifting is fun. Just get into it! Fun, fun, fun. I enjoy Oly lifting so much I rarely ever bench press, haven't had an "arms day" in like...3 months. Now I know that's a bit extreme, but hey - I don't enjoy those types of lifts anymore. I just want to have fun.
Now if you said you were 94, then I think you'd have an issue or two.
