Cool Light aerobics to assist recovery rate in Masters weightlifters

They say the recovery rate drops as you get older and certainly when I was in my 30s and ambitiously lifting there were many twice a day sessions and the body used to recover pretty well. Now as I'm in my 50s the desire to work hard is still there but when experimenting with 7-8 sessions per week the progress stops completely. It appears that 3 per day is the order of the day for me now. One thought comes to mind and that is whether the recovery rate could be increased by doing light non-ballistic aerobics, the idea being that waste products in the muscles would be removed more quickly. When younger I wouldn't have entertained this but only being able to effectively do 3 sessions per week still seems lazy to me. Anyone got any thoughts on this please?
