Default New guy has a question

Just joined the site... great information but I can't find an answer to what I'm concerned with...
At 53 years old I consider myself in pretty good shape. 6'5" tall 240 lbs, 14% bf, 17" arms 50" chest etc...
Been working out since I was 19 ,just basic free weight workouts approx 30 minutes every other day since then. At 50 my life was turned upside down on the personal side so I really stepped up my worouts... for the first two years the results were fantastic (still using free weights and crunches) but over the last 8 -10 monthes I've been noticing more and more pain with my workouts.... Wrist, elboe, neck and back pain. Almost to the point that I'm tempted to back off...or see my Dr.. I started using Creatin about the time this started. I did take a few weeks off over Thanksgiving but it didn't help.
Is this just a sign of getting old or pushing too hard? Any thoughts? Thanks, Dave

I think you need to invest in a joint supplement for sure. Also, the older you get, the easier you have to take it, in reality. Try to do less strenuous workouts for your joints, and keep the weight lower with higher reps.

Make sure your form is in check and you're not going too heavy on some exercises! You may feel like 25 yrs old again but your body may not be up to par! Joint supplement will help and try to choose exercises that arent too strenuous on joints!
