Thanks guys. The mission of this thread was to see what older lifter experience so i know what to experience soon.
As far as the whining, that's just my sense of humor.
The truth is that i have had cardiomyopathy for 10 years ever since the age of 25.
The Doc told me never to lift, but that is like asking me to roll over and die.
I began experimenting with what i could do.
It wasnt long before i regularily trained with 1RM.
I also continued my martial arts against my doctors advice.
(I dont recommend anyone following my habits- I am not giving advice!!!)
I now do both endeavors to a very high degree considering my limitations.
However, with age the cardimyopathy gets worse, and i wanted to know what roadblocks you guys ran into so i can prepare for them-especially considering that these roadblocks may be amplified by the cardiomyopathy.
Thanks for the huge turnout of replies. It helps.
