I don't know, I turned 26 a few months ago and I noticed that recovery is definately slower than it was a couple years ago. Also, I really have to watch what I eat. I hold on to fat alot easier. When I was 21, I'd eat burger king 3 times a day and was still just as cut (if not more) than I am now. Now I have to diet for 12 weeks to lose unwanted belly fat, and it comes back as soon as I stop dieting strictly. Injuries also hang around longer. F'in sucks.
Basically you can expect a drop in insurance rates. Nothing else to write home about

My metabolism seemed to begin to slow down around 25/26.

Hmmm, I'm 25 and I now have high cholesterol and belly fat. I also don't heal as fast as I use to from wounds. I recovery just a tad bit slower from exercise but thats probably b/c I'm not as active as when I was younger.
i'll be 28 in a few weeks, and i'm actually leaner, meaning, and smarter than i was back in high school. working smart not hard really goes a long way in the gym. but then, i was never one of those guys who could eat anything they want and not get fat. so in a way, just being a little bit smarter about taking care of myself has more than made up for any lack in recovery time.
all i know is that at 32 i am not bald... hope it stays that way. i do have some grey hair though lol!!
someone said their metabolism went to crap... very true... gotta watch what you eat... no more eating sweet stuff all time thats for sure... and i cut out the soda pop... i cant seem to cut out the coffee though
You may notice some new hair in strange places ......Actually I'm almost 28 and I noticed no slow in my metabolism whatso-ever. Genetics play a huge factor.

Biologically, basal metabolism slows down, testosterone and GH starts to decline. It's much more pronounced at 30, but it "CAN" be pronounced at 25. Technically, all three of those things start to decline immediately following puberty when our bodies are no longer growing.
With that said, these are the natural biologically detrimental changes of the average person. Active people, ESPECIALLY those who are active in resistance training receive the minimal amount of these decreases. We're exerting testosterone and GH all the time when we lift and as a result of such activity our metabolism maintains actively elevated.
So as long as you're not just a person who posts threads on bodybuilding sites but doesn't lift weights or are active yourself, you're probably one of those 25 year olds with nothing to worry about.
Muscle can still hypertrophy at 80+ years old, it's been seen up to 90 years old. Obviously not to the same extent, but your muscles will still respond to resistance training when you're body is as old as dust.
You're ten year reunion will come up in 2-3 years? 80% of them will be fat and not just because they partied too hard, but lack of activity to maintain elevated testosterone, GH, Metab all that. Be glad you have a gym pass
