I have been reading this forum and find the information and personal stories very useful. I’m a 50 YO at 240 and have a fairly heavy lifting plan. I’m nowhere at my prime but am slowly getting back. I never stopped working out but age and work have taken a big toll. My diet is low carb and at times I drop my carbs low to 20g for a month or two. I’m still fat and working that off slowly with pain and hard work. Injuries include knee surgeries, lower back major dist issues, shoulder problems, and ankle issues. Blood pressure issues at times but normal when on lower carbs. I have loved my weight lifting since I was 12 years old and will never stop. My goal is to get back to full strength at 220 and then cut up. Thank you again everyone for all of your useful information.
