Default traing at 50

I am 63 and have trained since I was 14.I now work my body parts(chest-back -shoulders- biceps- triceps-legs) once a week and in four days.The sets are between 9 and 12 per body part.I see a doc. regularly and am on HRT.It would be advisable to get a physical and blood test at least once a year to see where your at.Just an old mans opinion.

Sorry, but I don't agree with the majority in this post!
I train to build my body, I train to be big!
It's all very well you all saying that 3 days a week is what you should do so that you get plenty of rest but that just don't cut it!
Yes you need rest to grow, I train 5 days a week and I still grow! So whats with the 3 day a week stuff? It's fine if you just want a good body but if you want to big it just ain't going to work!
And let me ask you all a question, How many pro bodybuilders train only 3 times a week?
3 times per week will get you a good body(but you are not going to get massive from it) and it's fine if you are a beginner but that's as far as it goes

if ur older u definalty need a 5 day traingin split... and lifting heavy as well,, becasue ur bones need to rebuild osterblast deposits to keep ur bones strong and lifting heavy at an old age is whats needed.. plus old man muscle builds alot easier and better then young muscle.. plus gettting big no matter what age will be from the foods tht u eat and not the training.. !

I voted no to this, but there are so many variables.

Personally, I know that if I trained heavy 5 days a week, every week, I would get so many chronic or niggling injuries that I would just be doing myself damage and therefore what would be the point of training so hard. And I say this as someone who has trained for around 35 years.

I'm sure there will be people out there who have trained hard for a long time who have somehow avoided injuries who could train that hard.

It also depends what your aims are. If you are a competing bodybuilder then you will need to do what needs to be done, but if not, why risk injury, recovery and possibly not getting the best out of your workouts just to train hard.

I can train 5 days a week occasionally, and do, but if I averaged it out I would probably train 3 and no more than 4 days a week. And that's enough for me.

ps I'd be interested to know the ages of those who voted. I would suspect that many of those who said yes are not over 50!

All good points Stillgoingstron.

I voted yes, for myself, and what my goals are.

FWIW - I'll be 52 this August. 5'11" 215 lbs give or take a bit

However, in the thread about posting your training routine, you can see that I do a 2 day on, 1 day off, 3 days on, one day off routine.

By doing this, I never train for more than three days straight, yet train 5 out of 7 days a week.
