As well as at twenty. Only avoiding maximum loads on lower back and knee joints.Rest between workouts up to two or three days. However, everything is individual. I will only say that the primary priority (in my opinion), with age, should be the desire to maintain quality. Control of nutrition is probably even more important, with age than in young years.
Individual approach in each case, the fundamental principle.

I dont lift as heavy anymore. At 46 last year i pulled a hamstring on a 625 dl pull and that really slowed me down. Now more reps, less weight.

I rarely max out anymore. Isn't worth it...ego vs chance of injury. Wasn't easy to do as I'm lbs for lbs one of the strongest guys in the gym.

I used to work around the 5 rep range. Now it's more in the 8-12, except legs, I go pass 20. Use machines that you put weights on more than I used to. May restrict movement and not engage supporting muscles as much...but a LOT less chance of injury if you are going higher in weights with no spotter.

Do more HITT. I hate doing $hit like burpees but part of the conditioning. Seldom bulk anymore...my weight stays within 3-4 lbs all year long. Don't do orals much anymore because I like to drink a beer a couple times a week.

Donate blood every two months. Talk fish oil. Cut carbs way down...so no breads, potatoes, or pasta...but I love wheat beer. Other than beer, everything I drink has no calories. Eat mostly chicken, fish and vegs.

Date younger women..much younger...like half my age minus 5 (but legal). Keeps you young...they love sex with someone that knows what they are doing.

I'm in my 40's and have upped my reps to 12 for upper body and 0 for lower body. I have a lot of joint damage from work through the years so this helps a lot.

On the course I train 4-5 times a week, in breaks 2-3 times per week. Exercises like the body of each individual ... so if you follow the technique, you can perform any exercises, you need to feel the working muscle and try to unload the joints, and age is not an obstacle, the main thing is listen to your body.

That's 20 for lower body.

I’m in my early 40’s been doing this a long time, I find myself having to do lots of warm up sets.. don’t jump up in weight to fast, and stay away from low rep ranges for the most part 8+

Don’t like training back to back days. Mon, wed, fri, works really well for me

Here is some good advice.

  • Avoid ego lifting
  • Find different ways to increase intensity. More reps, more sets over heavy weights
  • Diet and sleep are above else the most important component to results
  • Train frequently, but take time off to recover
  • Listen to your body and STOP when something does not feel right
  • Train around injuries
  • Stretch - flexibility will help prevent injury (especially back)

I do 2 way splits, upper and lower body. Around 6 sets per bodypart.

Try to go to the gym Mon thru Fri but will take a day off if I'm feeling tired.

Somebody said it, leave ego at the door. Early 50s myself, do not attempt max lifts, keep proper form and really try to feel the muscles being worked

me too brotha, mon,wed,fri, I never max out any longer, but occasionally go down to the 3-5 rep range but not often, instead of focusing so much on weight I utilize drop sets and partials at the end of partials I will get my partner to apply pressure on the eccentric portion of the lift ( that depends on movement ).
