As another old man, it is a) time to cut out parts of your diet that weaken your muscles and tendons; b) adopt a stretching routine; and c) pace yourself. One day, you'll look back on this time and think, "F---. Back then, I thought I was old. I had no idea."
(*big smile*)Yeah, it’s tough man. I’ll work on it.
I can only add that I hit the lowest weight that I've had in 20 years: 224.7 lbs. I feel lean, I feel light on my feet and I feel tough and strong. And I am almost 56.
I also recommend a stretching routine. 51 today, I don't feel it, then I do yard work and oh my...
I feel you man. I just turned 52 and a couple of years ago I tweaked my back getting up off the floor. GETTING UP OFF THE FLOOR. Hurt so bad. It hasn't happened since fortunately but man did that make me feel old. Like a freakin' cliche.
I am in this group and a month ago hurt my back doing nothing. Oh wait, I was sleeping. So I hurt my back sleeping...
Most of my injuries these days come from "sleeping funny."
I think Billy Gardell has a comedy routine built around hurting yourself while you are sleeping. It's funny because it's true.
