    Do you have any advice for me? I am 52, low testosterone, gaining weight, also had hysterectomy years ago. I want to lose weight and gain muscle and i am having a hard time doing either one. I don't seem to gain any muscle or lose weight even with diet and weight lifting. I have no energy and have a hard time going now.

    Sorry I've only just seen this. Difficult to answer just off that information. It could well be down to your diet but we can't rule out hormonal issues. If you want to PM me some more info I can hopefully point you in the right direction or at least be able to ask you some more personal questions that you may not like to answer on a public forum. x

    Hi all,
     
    I'm not quite in the over 50's category (just turned 49) but I've come on here specifically to see if anyone is having the same issues as I am.  I've been weight training on and off for 30+ years - even when I haven't been lifting I've stayed active in other ways.  Never really had a weight problem or any major health issues and have always been quite strong, but for the past year I've been finding the gym and training a real struggle.  I want to train and train hard or at least well but my energy levels are really low and I'm finding that I'm just not able to train the way I want to.  I'm using barely any weight (if any - often just the bar for squats and bench) but in the days after training I'm experiencing severe muscle soreness and I'm so tired that it's only a very good week that I might manage two or three training sessions.  I sometimes feel like it might be time to admit defeat but mentally I'm not ready or willing to do that and I somehow feel that weight training at this stage of my life is more important than ever.  If there are other ladies out there going through a similar time I would love to know that I'm not alone.
