Hopefully I can articulate my question. I am 52, I have been lifting regularly for a little over a year. I have made good strength strides, OK mobility and flexibility improvements, and a lot of my ole aches and pains have either went away or have been reduced. I am still too heavy, but realize this is a diet issue vs a lifting issue. My question is can recovery be improved similar to aerobic conditioning or strength? Or as you age, you just are not going to recover as well? When I started training again, I would follow various programs, and what I have found is that working out a body part more then twice a week or working out intensely more then 3 times a week just seems to wear me out and it hasn’t really improved over time. ( I can do a program like easy strength 5 times a week and be OK, but no way can I lift intensely 3 times a week lets say on bench or squats) I am wondering if I should work on my conditioning a little more, would this improve recovery? Would any type of supplement help such as BCAA’s, creatine or glutamine? Thanks in advance for any advice.
