I read a little on his site, I didn't read about our frame only being engineered to last 40 years, but I think that the human body is amazing and can last foe a much longer time. I've seen men in their 70's gain muscle mass and strength do a significant degree.
Also, he has to be talking about severe joint pain and not muscle burn and soreness. Muscle burn and soreness from a hard workout are essential markers for how hard you have pushed it in a workout, and how long one needs to recover, this is vastly different from severe joint pain due to bone, tendon, ligament problems. I agree, you should not feel any severe joint pain during or before a workout, but that is a perfect scenario, consistancy means that you work around injuries, and that will entail some pain.
Didn't think much of his website though, trust yourself and your instincts and you'll be just fine.
