    Not as long as you've been lifting since your early 20's and continue to do so.

    It does get harder to develop, but it's not a big deal. From zero to peak isn't the 20 year venture it's made out to be. What takes people so long is figuring it out. Which you'll want to do because you will stop being able to develop at all one day but you'll be able to maintain whatever you have naturally, even if it's only in your muscle memory.

    By 30 you should already by at your 80-90% natty peak. That is only possible if you start lifting in your early 20s. So you just lift to maintain and get those last natty % in order.
    If you're not at your natty peak by 30 then you're most likely (90%) NGMI. Same goes for your career, by the way.
    I always find it funny how out-of-shape 30 year old dadbods "new year new me" waste money on gym memberships, brand clothing and unnecessary supplements only to quit 2 weeks in.
    Not demotivational, all it takes you is to look around and see that 95% of men are out of shape to have my point proven.

      By natty peak this is what I mean (gif related). You should not go over 15% bodyfat at any point and should be 12% in the warm months.

        Are you joking? You could start at 40 and still get that.

        HIIT cycling/sprinting, leg press/extensions are more than enough.

        If you're not in a solid spot on your career ladder by 30 and aren't proficient in your trade of choice then it's over. Being a food delivery guy at 30 is kinda cringe if it's your primary job.

            You just have to go directly to the job you want if it's possible for you. The idea that there's a series of good boy steps to get you there is just an illusion to control you.

              Eh, I don't entirely agree but "ladder" is definitely the wrong term because it implies a long series of small, even steps. In reality you will have to jump from one job to another to aquire the experience to progress in most industries, but like three different positions is enough to go from every level to fairly senior. You might go through a lot more actual jobs than this but that's more to do with switching employer at the same level to increase your salary.

                The military is entirely different. The ladder does actually exist there.
                But yeah, you're right. You can't just apply for CEO. Someone can though and they probably never did your job.

          If you are not finantially independent (no denbts, enough passive income to sustain a normal life without working) by 40 and still work a job making ends meet then you haven't made it.

            That I agree with. Except..
            >without working
            Are you moronic? Judging by your ideas on lifting, I'd say yes.

              By not working I mean having enough passive income to cover your basic needs (food,taxes,bills,entertainment) to sit at home on your ass.

        Start lifting in your early 20's, 7-15 rep hypertrophy range (once you can do 15 good reps with good form on your first set, add weight and go back to 7 reps). Don't go over 15% bodyfat. DLs and squats will frick up your back and are shit for hypertrophy anyway.

    Im turning 29 next week and I’ve heard this my whole 20s and I look better now than I did at 19. The truth is people start to fall apart at 30 because they give up on keeping up with their health. So many of my friends have succumbed to the alcohol israelite, the chronic pain israelite, and the general sedentary lifestyle israelite.

      the truth spoken in brief. While it's true due to basic entropy that it does get a smidge harder to maintain or even progress with age and decay, it's 100% the fact that people entirely give the whole routine up instead of facing smaller, incremental difficulties of age that are minute in every day life.
      IT's like they have one bad week and forget about it all entirely for EVER! Like ''that's it, I'm done with taking care or maintaining this vessel of mine. I'm closing shop.'' At 30-32...
      You will notice who fricking sticks with it and who doesn't. It really is just about keep going and maintaining and even if you fall out the damn wagon just start again, baby steps, don't get an ego and refuse to go unless you can still hit your past PRs etc...You have to be humble and face failure or setbacks in strides, you can't just abandon it all or stick your head in the sand.
      That's a huge major problem in early middle age people. You will see the weak sorted from the strong, and not from a physical strength standpoint but from a mental one.
      There's gays who push 5lb dumbbells that will keep going and doing the same easy going routine and maintaining what they got, then there's absolute losers that reached mountain tops who can't cope with none of the loss and go from being Mr Olympia neggers or young athletes to some fat sedentary couch frick with a beer gut...
      You really have to keep going, it's way easier to maintain or keep progressing if you just keep going, don't even try to reach huge goals, just go in there and frick around for a while.
      Stop people don't even go to the gym anymore, not even to frick around and push baby weights. It's an ego thing 100%.

        So you're saying to crawl into a hole and die?

        It's never too late. Don't give up brahs. Comparison is the thief of joy, stop caring about what others do, think, and look like. Focus on yourself. You're going to be 60 one day anyway, you might as well be a fit 60 year old.
