I voted for "No" however this depends on many factors such as:
- did you train before
- health situation
- training length

i voted no

i dont think training 5 days a week is wise at any age, your body would not be getting sufficiant rest and you will become worn down IMO

I took NO because I would say that you need to contact your doctor first, however if you are an experienced bodybuilder you know what you need.

I also voted no. There is a lot of good info out there with great workouts. most current training routines require you to have more rest days as we now understand more about the healing process of muscle tissue. At 50 your body needs even more time to recover from training than it did at 20. You can always improve your body- at any age, as long as you train smart. Train hard, tear it up good, enjoy your off days and you'll stay motivated to continue working out.

Hard to say yes or no. I'm 43 & train 6 day's a week; however, I only lift 5 day's, each body part once a week. Lift M-F & do cardio Mon. Tues. Thurs. Fri. & sat, then Sunday completely off. I have also worked out most of my life, so my body is use to the stress.
If someone over 50, who has never worked out, asked if training 5 day's a week was to much, I would say absulutly. Without knowing the history of the person asking the question, I couldn't give a yes or no answer. Also, if you have never worked out, I agree with extremelyhuge (above) as to seeing your doctor before starting anything.
Sorry to ramble on, thats just my opinion.
