I am 8 years your junior, a former police officer, and had lifted weights for nearly 40 years, whereupon I gave it up due to various injuries and took up Yoga instead. I did a comprehensive study about ten years ago on the subject of Yoga and discovered that the people who consistently remain in the best physical health up into their declining years and beyond are yogis. I find my Yoga workouts to be at least as challenging as the weight workouts were, and I never felt so good after a workout as I do with Yoga. I still do certain resistance exercises, such as grip work and the farmer's walk, for purposes of functionality, but I no longer pursue the traditional exercises.
I can, however, recommend a good book to you: Gray Hair and Black Iron, by Brooks Kubik, 5-time national bench press champion and author of Dinosaur Training. This book, along with a number of classic weightlifting courses from back in the day, are available at:
This book has a lot of advice for the older weight trainer. Good luck to you, sir, and I would strongly advise to you to look into Yoga to, if nothing else, supplement your weight training. Flexibility is exceptionally important as we age, and as I'm sure you're aware, we can't train the same way now we did when we were 25. When you go to that website, I suggest having them send you a paper catalog, as it's much easier to pursue at your leisure.
Okay, just checking.
You might want to check out Pilates. I discovered the system recently and it works for me. It beats massaging a wet telephone pole.
Yoga is decent. I'm not a fan though.
Thank you all for your great suggestions. I appreciate your help.
Thank you Curt.
