    Diet is more important than the lifting. Clean eating.

    I may be weird but I always feel like utter crap until I get a good warmup. We usually start with squats, and I do 2 warmup sets at lower weights (all this after stretching), but even that typically isn’t enough to avoid some pain on the first of 3 sets.

    I find that a short jog, even if it’s under a mile, before I start stretching goes a long way toward making my lifting session feel great from the start.

    Keep it up!

    I agree with the warmup issues. The older I get the more I need to warm up.
