Well, according to a number of training sources, once a man hits his 40's, training emphasis should be on flexibility and range of motion. Resistance training is still good, unless one wants to lose both muscle and bone mass, but stretching, yoga, tai chi, etc have more benefit.

(Note: I'm 43, and have shifted from a weight-lifting focus to more bodyweight, calisthenic, and yoga type workouts - but I still lift. I just don't go for the heavy weights any more, but instead go more for reps at moderate weights.)
