Title: Alright swollen hugester musclestuds....question
Post by: Man of Steel on November 09, 2012, 10:46:13 AM
I've been experiencing more pulled muscles lately....pec/delt tie-in, around my rhomboids, lower biceps, occassionally a calf.  I warm up, I stretch, etc.....is it just age?  I'm only 37.

Yes, it's age.  Sarcopenia usually begins in your late 20's to early 30's.  Just accept it, and you'll be a whole lot better off.  I've accepted the fact that I will never be able to lift like I used to be able to in my 20's.  It's depressing, but it's a fact of life.   >:(

Don't bother saying it, yes, I'll go fuck myself.

Lighter weights, more reps, go for the burn/pump. Stop training heavy. Well, that's what worked for me anyways.

I used to bench 365 for 8 sets of 3 reps. Now, not only do I not bench anymore, but if I press at all for chest, it's using dumbells, for 3 sets of 15-20, and I rarely use about 70lbs. Know what? My chest looks better.

I switched from heavy lifting (like all those strength coaches on T-Nation tell you to) to lifting more like Vince Taylor - lots of reps, sets, go for a pump/burn, leave a few reps in the tank on every set, train fast, keep the weights pretty light, go for perfect form.

Know what? I actually got bigger, and muscles are fuller. I think my body looks better. It certainly feels better...I haven't been hurt in the 6 months I switched to this type of training. Meanwhile, when I was doing the usual Wendler/5-3-1/westside training, I was hurt every couple months.

I'm probably not as strong or explosive as I used to be. But who cares...I'm not trying to run the 100m dash and I'm not playing college football anymore. I'm just some guy in his mid 30's trying to stay in the gym and not turn into a pile of shit. Just want to look good.

Bob Chick had it right, after all. God damn him.

Some of you should be ashamed to even talk about age, being in your 30's/40's:

So far we have:

Sacropenia
overtraining
need either high resistance training or possibly hormone replacement therapy
poor genetics
fat, old and stinky
AIDS
need train with lighter weights
heart is weakening

As mentioned above, god smiting should be considered as well.

Sarcopenia is caused by dropping hormone and IGF levels so you can fix that easily enough. although you are going to get age related palumboism eventually no matter what you do (arms start to shrink, more bf, weaker, waist gets a little bigger all that good stuff.)

getting older does suck for recovery and you tweak shit a lot more. I only go heavy every other workout now and I only do bench, deadlift, squat more than once a month.
