    Exercise at 40+
    You can't find the resource for good reason!! What bones am I breaking while I lift weights that I need to heal quicker that they did in my 20's?

    You're an inspiration. I have heard that people who are in their 40s and 50s should be careful about weight lifting. But seeing you I want to say that those claims were all false. I lift weight even though I have a stoma in my abdomen. I wear Ostomy Belts to support and comfort my stoma during the exercise. Life is so difficult after Ileostomy.

    This morning I stumbled across one of those "how to workout when you're over 40" articles, and I could only shake my head at how typical its tone was. It's as if they think 40 is geriatric. It's as if you should be doing 20 lb. leg presses at the hospital's physical therapy facility while a nurse stands there saying, "slowly ... ok, set it down carefully ... there you go ." Granted, you want to start slowly if you've neglected yourself for most of your life. But there are so many men past 40 who will be fine doing reasonably intense workouts for decades to come. I'm in my late 40s, and never have I been in the middle of a heavy bench press and thought I was too old to be doing this. If anything, my age is part of my motivation to keep doing it. Stop working out, and the decline is faster.

    I've been working out fairly regularly since my early 20s. I never got huge, but I'm fit and healthy. One of my priorities has always been to have a balanced workout and maintain good form and habits, so I haven't seen the need to change much of anything due to age. When I was in my 20s and crunched for time, I'd occasionally jump right into a workout with a scant warmup stretch and no warmup cardio. These days, I always do a proper warmup. Other than that, I simply work out smarter and with more knowledge of my body.

    Can't believe a doc would tell you not to lift! Regardless, well done on your success!
