Turned the big 54 this year .... and have really been focusing on getting in and maintaining good physical condition as well as losing a little weight. Been working out about 4 times a week, in addition to, 1-2 surf sessions a week. So far it is working - feel like my surfing, paddling, etc - has really improved. Still need to work on stretching a little bit more but i would like to keep the regiment up without resorting to something like Advil for muscle soreness on a regular basis. I was thinking about adding some type of drink or supplement to help with post workout muscle recovery as well as keeping the metabolism firing - not really interested in bulking up. There is so many products out there - and everyone has it's "guaranteed" marketing claim. Anyone using anything with real or noticeable results?

Salt is good too.

Warrior mindset is the best.

The mindset that you need a special drink weakens you, I think.

Systematically build your endurance.

Humans are adaptable and resilient.

I think consistent, progressive training is the best thing.

Workout supplements are mostly bullshit. Eating right is the most important thing and you can mostly get what you need from diet. For muscle soreness the only thing I've found that works is whey protein post workout mixed with creatine monohydrate (creatine is without a doubt the best single thing you can take for muscle recovery). I buy the cheapest gold standard whey I can get and mix it with creatine myself. On top of that running helps by getting your blood flowing through your muscles, even if it isn't muscles that are normally stressed by running. Carbs post workout helps as well. Good time of day to eat fruit and/or starches.

After I am done with my reps on muscle I jump rope for a minute before I go on to the next muscle group. I also hit the speed bag and heavy bag each for a minute.This helps cool down specially after work out when you should do jump rope or run.

For me preemptive foam rolling and following that up with a tennis ball for the hard to reach places has done wonders with some chronically knotted up muscles I had. After working some of the more painful spots I'd put some Kramer's Red Hot on. Red Hot is like Ben Gay but instead of menthol it has capsicum in it. Burns so good!

I have a roller - helps with the back. I don't have issues with knots - just general soreness. I did a 4 hour surf session this past weekend - had to take a few days off from workouts to recoup.

The old grey mule just ain't what she used to be ever heard that saying? Your 54 years old. Aging negatively affects our cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. Time is not is not our friend. Exercise will help to mitigate some of the negative affects, as will good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. If we dont exercise we can lose up to 1% of strength per year beginning at the age of 50. Keep doing what your doing but remember that you will need more rest between training sessions as you get older, there is no magic workout or bullet. Be smart; make rest part of your training. Dont try and train like your 40, train looking forward because your needs will be different and thats where your headed anyway. Make sure your exercise program goals are to be the healthiest you can be at 55, 56, 57 etc and thats not going to come from a bottle of supplements.

I think as you get old you really have to get your technique down. Youth allows you to leave gas in the tank. You can just muscle it with bad technique and get by.

A functional human body is incredibly efficient.

Most 50 year olds have been using youth and vigor to compensate for dysfunction.
