As I understand the older I get the harder it will be for me to make and maintain muscle, correct? I am currently 45, and I am getting older... but I also need to lose some weight, like 40lbs. This is also to help with my blood pressure. So I guess I am wondering what are the specifics I should know about returning to the gym after a couple of years off.
I hurt my back a few years ago when I was lifting, but that turned out to be because of my feet. I have flat feet and they pronate badly. I have since gotten orthotics and really good shoes so my back issues are pretty much gone.
I also use a mix of HMB, Arginine and Glutamine to help with weight loss and muscle gain.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
