WOW! 35+ gets it own section like we are old or something? I mean I can see 40+ getting there own section, I mean that's old.
Just joined, looking forward to sharing some aches and pains with everyone. Really having as much fun, if not more, training now as I ever have. Hope the same is true for some of you.

Well, I'm 37 years old and I feel really old. And training does get harder but, more satisfying when you do make gains. I've training since I was 19 years old (wow) and have never once ever thought about giving up the iron game.

41 yr old here, still going strong. Joints do pop though from all that heavy working out back in the day.

Training for me still hasn't gotten that much harder at 50. I can take a lot more pain than I used to and I am smarter so I train more efficiently. True I can't or just don't train like as much of a maniac but finding a lot of that was unnecessary anyway.
Up untill I was 45 I was full speed ahead and trained furiously damn when I was 37-8 I was certifiable and rarely was there anybody in the gym who could do what I could. When I decided to not train to failure and shorten my workouts my results just got better.
Yah age is what you make of it...

Y'know guys, athough I've invested years of my to bodybuilding whether it be a competitor or just someone who loves and respects the sport through training and nutrition, it still amazes me how much new info. is out there.
Right now, I'm excited about these methyl ph/ps that are on the market. I know about the June 2008 ban but, with this new administration coming up in Jan., it may be awhile before we see another official ban.

Hey all,, need some help w this one. First and foremost, I have never partaken in any type of aas, so I am somewhat behind the curve on the lingo and do and donts. Nevertheless, heres my story, a year ago I broke myself pretty bad. And i still have not recovered fully. Due to the lack of exercise that I was able to do, because of my injury, I have put on weight eventhough I ate1800-2000 cal a day. And now, I am suffering from the added mass.. mostly I would have to say it is 60% fat more than muscle. i have been reading alot of forums and this is what I have comeup with.. Deca for recovery and well being @ a minimum 400mg p/wk (inject). And, Clen to cut with 20mcg>120mcg p/day. This to be one cycle for two weeks only. Does this sound correct so far?
And I would be very interested for any input if I am just going about this the wrong way?
Clen 20mcg p/day (now the headaches have stopped)
Clen 80mcg p/day
Thanks in advance!
Oh, Im 37 in a month and a half!

The one thing that really sucks about getting old as a lifter/ex-athlete is that the joints don't recover like they used to.

Maybe NutraPlanet should start carrying rocking chairs for you guys

Use that age and experience to stay up withy the products at NP. I lift heavy and yet have soothed my joints and repaired two RC injuries with USPLabs Super Cissus RX. My wife and many friends have all had similar positive results. Check it out let your joints feel much, much younger.

My gym sells that stuff. I'm gonna buy some. And for you young guys, your time will come when your joints will be hurting. Age has no mercy on anyone.

Dreamweaver you mentioned herbals. I'm 44 and looking to gain some lean muscle and lose some waist fat....any suggestions on what is best? I'm still hitting it as hard as I can pushing heavy weights, cardio is limited but I'm working on increasing it
I was leaning toward methyl lmasterdrol V2 but I want to be safe too
Any help would be appreciated

USP has a great line of natural products, Applied nutricals is also good along with a few other companies, just do some research.. this should get you started.

I agree. We'll be able to buy more supplements and keep up with the little boys. By the way, has any of the old-timers tried USP Lab s Powerfull?
