Don, I am 60,will be 61 in Aug.I don't train a cycle,I just train in a way that my body likes.Yes I get tired,I lifted at Masters in Nov. I took 2 wks off and started back slowly.I squat once every 2 wks.DL every 2 wks.alternate the 2.Bench 1 time a week,one week will be 3 sets of 3's & the next will be 3 5's or 5 5's just depends on how I feel.I can't train like the youngsters,as I have gotten older I had to modify.Also I am not a real strong lifter,but I do it in a way that I enjoy.Hope this helps in some way,good luck with it...
