40 ain't old either. Based on some frequent, consistent and regular dialogue and 'camaraderie' between several to many members of that age group (40 +/-) I think that 35+ covered it. It is not intended to catagorize us as old, but rather provide a non-all-ages environment, and the element that accompanies such, to discuss 'whatever' us old(er) guys discuss. JMO

Serious and (semi)true story;
Had an issue back in the day when I had what was diagnosed as chronic prostatitis, chronic uerethritis, chronic-chronic...they did not know what the heck was the issue. Went to a uerologist. This guy was about 5'8" - 240lbs old Jewish guy with big fat hands and fingers. Tells me to bend over the table.... Just about had me crying.
Several years later getting an exam at my female doctor's office. She is about 5'2" - 105lbs.
She explained to me that something about her Hippocratic Oath would not allow her to accept gratuities...

I'm 35y/o and age is nothing but a number to me. When I tell people my age they look stun and their mouth just drop to the floor. I love seeing that look.
I also love to win those teddy bears at the carnivals booth that try to guess your age. I can always guarantee my date a teddy bear at those booths.

My wife is 7 years younger than me, a woman once asked me for my I.D. to buy beer and then looked at my wife and said nevermind, I know she is old enough, sweet!!!!

Ditto to that - imagine the looks I get when I go out to dinner with my 35 yr old wife...and Im 61!! We also have a 18 month old...... I also stump the carnival guy - both weight and age....(of course Im carrying a Colt 45 - but he misses by 20 lbs LOL)Originally Posted by QUICKRYDE

Im glad they put this forum here. Im 51 and although 35 isnt that old it is the age when a guy starts to notice that gravity is starting to affect musculature. At this age the body responds differently to exercise, that is a little slower to stimulus. As long as a person keeps going though you can maintain.

You’re in excellent shape for a man that is 61y/o and you have a wife almost half your age…you go dawg. I'm bowing down to you. Hehehe, you know about that carnival booth too.
I hope the fitness gods keep blessing me with good health and a muscular body till I’m your age and beyond.
Keep up the good work.

I second this, you look great! I hope to be in that good of shape when I'm your age. I just turned 38 last week. I still have people thinking I'm in my mid twenties.

Got ID'ed at Applebee's
If you're wondering, does a fitness life style keep you young?
I'm 37. Last week I got ID'ed trying to order a beer at an Applebee's. No kidding.
And in case you wonder if it's related, I'm not a gear user nor all that big -- just strong and fit.

Haaa!!! I was carded at Applebee's too. Ordered up a Brewster of Amber Bock and the chick asked for my id. I was carded going into a club with my girlfriend a couple weeks ago. They carded her first, she's 24, then me, I'm 38. The dude at the door took a second look at my id, then at my girlfriend and just winked.Originally Posted by Malek256
The fitness lifestyle definitely helps keep me young, both physically and at heart.

cuffs - youre a celebrity and dont know it. There are thousands of guys reading your "wildnight" post. I know the first thing I do when I come to the boards is see if youve added anything - I see by your profile that youre 38, at this rate one year from now your odometer will read "61" - but you know what...trust me..theres still many miles left on you!!

The fitness lifestyle works for women as well. I'm 38 and got ID'ed at the grocery store buying beer for my husband. And just few weeks ago we had a new guy join our gym. He kept trying to put the move on me. He's 20! Told him how old I was. He said he thought I was in my early 20's. I keep tring to tell the women at my gym that comment on how I look asking for advise. Put down those damn pink dumbells and lift some weight! You won't get big and musculine from lifting heavy weights!Originally Posted by Malek256
