I can tell you that your muscles are that much older, so you should be very careful when you first start out. I would also recommend speaking to your family doctor first.

First of all, the most important thing is to make sure you go and talk to your doctor about it. Once you are cleared by your doctor, start with a light routine, and once you stop getting soared from your work outs, start increasing the intensity of your work outs.

Start very slowly, do not jump in and start lifting at your maximum. Get a personal trainer, and start on some glucosamine. Let me stress, be careful of your joints.
