    A little. Frequency is about to go up. Or back up... to squatting 2 and 3 times a week, deadlifting twice and benching 3-4 times a week. Most of my injuries have actually come from doing those things only once per week. Especially squats. I tend to "forget" how to do it after 5 or 6 days LOL.

    Trained for 12 years now and nothing has really changed to be honest....cant see if changing anytime soon....I always chop and change what sorta of exercises I do but the core of my workouts remain the same...

    I train much better now at older age.

    less heavy sessions, more moderate sessions.

    I've resolved to listen to my body better and back off a bit when the ageing joints start giving me grief, rather than the "she'll be right" approach. On my second back off week now and feel the better for it. Will go back in normal next week but if some exercise(s) start flaring them up again, they will be replaced altogether or altered weight wise and either increase volume or intensity.

    Yes, I've just started deloading every month, which I have never done before and my body is thanking me for it.

    Changed for better and worse..

    Better as in I no longer make myself go every single damn day... i.e. over-training when I should be resting.

    Worse as in I can no longer do some of the exercises I once excelled at due to wearing down / injury e.g. weighted dips, skull crushers...

    I don't do the hardcore exercises religiously anymore. Like the deadlifts, squats and bench. I still do them but not week in week out. I do em as a functional thing and to make sure the strength is still there but now I like doing supersets, varying reps and exercises and so on.

    Hasn't really changed at all but what has changed is my appetite and how much I can eat in one sitting
