I’ll be 50 in less than a month. Really tired of busting my ass in the gym-since 1985 and no longer making any worthwhile or noticeable gains. Anyone else in the same boat as me?

Yep, older you get the harder it gets to make noticeable progress, especially if you’ve been training properly for years. Just keep this in mind, think about what the average 50 year old man looks like today. My guess is you’re probably in better shape than the average 30 year old man. Makes all the effort worth while. Hang in there and keep working.

Have you had bloods done recently to assess hormone levels? I jumped on TRT when I turned 50 and think its fantastic.
Any heart disease in your family? If so, get a calcium score CT scan done. (Just some advices from another old-guy).

Same here, but a little older. Had some health issues last fall and some personal issues for the last couple years which has really set me back. Seems like I'm having a really hard time staying with it.

I’m right there with you! I’m frustrated as hell, but I’m determined that there’s a happy medium in it somewhere.
