Training in your late 30's- recovery!

Anybody in their late thirties out there, who struggle with  their recovery?

I currently do a four day split,having moved from a 3/split, but i am finding that doms are greater and general recovery is so much longer. Eg Mon is leg days and i am lucky to be walking properly by Friday.

Is this just age( i am 37) ?

I have trained since a young teenager, but gave up late twenties, but since starting again earlier this year, i find that i struggle to recover adequately.I am happy with my progress so far,but just wondered if the way i feel now(knackered),is how its going to be from now on.

Any thoughts!

    I've not noticed it being an issue as yet... however, with the advancing years has come the addition of family and with it less flexibility in how I go about my daily life so often I can be tired or having a bad day which can all impact my training in some way or another....

    Yeah, routine goes out of the window with kids around.

    i'm approaching my mid 40's, at present i'm on a pull, push & legs routine. each bodypart gets trained once a week (with the exception of abs, which are trained every session) and i have no problems with recovery

    Im nearly 43 and I train 3 days a week push pull each body part gets trained once a week. My sessions last about 45 mins sometimes 60 mins max. I train intense and heavy and Im usually all done at 45 mins. I train Mon, Wed and Fri. with the rest of the week off and I recover fine.
    Maybe you should go on a 3 day week.
