As the saying goes it's always something, lol.  Having hip joint pain on one side like a German Shepard. Wonder if it's a temp injury?  You have been doing squats and deads since King Tut. Do you have any hip problems? I think I'm getting it from Deads, squats and leg presses. Sometimes grinding out the reps in the leg press I can feel the pressure in the joint. Wonder if I'm going to have to work around those great exercises?  Only been bugging me for a week. Hope the vet doesn't have to put me down. 

Think light weights and high reps is something to try for joint preservation?

Too much stress.  You are over-doing it.

Running, walking, lifting.  Too much.

His problem is running /walking with a bad posture. This will cause as will weight training a disbalance if training dominant muscles too frequently.

I hear you brother.....getting older sux!!

My hips are OK but I have three bulging discs and arthritis in my lower back and in my neck.

I think Donnys idea is a good one..........I pre-exhaust quads now as my knees were screaming on Leg Presses but Henda suggested I do them last, and it`s been great so far.....just a bit lighter poundage wise but it feels heavy since my legs are wiped out from all the prior work I`ve done.

Sounds like a great idea. Do leg extensions and leg bicep work first so a lighter weight can be used for legs in the big exercises. I knew you would have good advices. Any guy that is in their 60's and claim they are okay after exercising hard  for over 40 years probably trained like a pussy. There are casualties of war. Hope your back feels better.

Right now I`m starving,so that`s a good sign.
