I turned 50 lasy May...and about the only thing I can complain about are my elbows...Tendanitis in my right all the time, and now it is starting in my left. Cost of doing business I suppose.
Other than that, once I figured out how to squat, my hips are fine, and I am no longer bothered by my lower back arthritis.....I will be watching how you do joint pain wise if you switch back to 5/3/1

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
