    35 ain't all that old.


    35 and older huh? So I got like 1.5 years and I'm in the old foggie section.

    I'd like to put in a request to make this the 40 and Older section.. (give me some breathing room).

    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.

    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.

    Cool


    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.

    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!

    That is very cool! And cooler still to hear you figured out the truth behind the BS that is fed to women about doing cardio instead of weights I wish you luck in convincing other women to see the real benefit of heavy work rather than wasting their time with "aerobics". Perhaps your great condition will be an effective tool with this!

    AGE, n. That period of life in which we compound for the vices that we still cherish by reviling those that we have no longer the enterprise to commit.

    Working out definitely benefits everyone in more ways than one. I'm 33 yrs old and people always think I am in my mid twenties.

    If you look at the top guys in the sport most of them would be considered "older".

    Another thing I have noticed being older, is that my gains are more solid. I don't know if it's due to having better muscle control or what, but I definitely feel individual muscles working better and my gains seem to not only come faster but are more quality than in the past.

    I also find that I lift smarter. Some of the young people interpret that as going lighter and feeling the reps. I definitely don't train light but I think my technique has improved to where I can "feel it" better and still lift heavy.

    Working out definitely benefits everyone in more ways than one. I'm 33 yrs old and people always think I am in my mid twenties.

    If you look at the top guys in the sport most of them would be considered "older".

    Another thing I have noticed being older, is that my gains are more solid. I don't know if it's due to having better muscle control or what, but I definitely feel individual muscles working better and my gains seem to not only come faster but are more quality than in the past.

    I also find that I lift smarter. Some of the young people interpret that as going lighter and feeling the reps. I definitely don't train light but I think my technique has improved to where I can "feel it" better and still lift heavy.
    I totally agree. I just turned 30 and I feel I get much more effective workouts now than I did 5 years ago. Of course, I really didnt start getting serious about things until 5 years ago, so it could just be experience paying off.

    Its funny how when you get older, taking care of yourself really starts to show through. Ive seen people I went to highschool with that look like they're in their 40's, people are constantly surprised when they hear my age, thinking Im 24-25.

    And when I get to the point that the age starts to show, bring on the HRT baby! Woohoo!

    I have noticed I need to be on top of the nutrition a bit more since 30. Definitely more in tune with the body and the mechanics of resistance training. for the most part, I know what works and what doesn't.
