And a young man's training plan isn't going to work for us older guys.Do you do maxes when you lift? My son who weightlifts told me I should stay comfortably below my max and go for more reps, so that's what I do.I can lift hard, but I got a lot of old injuries and I'm in pain all the time, and that fucks up my recovery. You need a good diet, and some good sleep..... and a good night's sleep is hard to come by for someone like me.
They have the best intentions but they don't understand the changes our bodies go through with the accumulated mileage we have; they can't yet.
Talk to old lifters, see what they say.
