Are Masters Weightlifting Programs Gimmicks?

Stacy Asks: Do you think there is a valuable or significant difference between regular lifting programs and ones targeted for masters? I’ve been following the catalyst athletic programs for years and had great progress and success with them. I’m noticing more and more Barbell clubs offering specific “Masters” programming, though. So, I’m wondering if there is something different to those programs that I should be paying attention to or if they are just a gimmick. Your thoughts??
