        And the consequences of it just build up over time, if you have certain genetic predispositions you may look fine at 25 with a shitty lifestyle, but at 50+ there's just no way.

    I'm 38. I do not know a single person my age who has stayed IST. Most of my friends let themselves go right after high school, both physically and nutritionally. I will never understand.

      I’m 30 and I feel like I’m just getting started. All of my married friends are overweight and in a decline. Almost everytime we hangout one makes some sort of comment on my metabolism as if that’s the only reason I’m in better shape than they are. They’re happy though so not gonna push them into anything they probably already consider but decide not to do.

        Making it isn't a destination, it's a trajectory, a way of life. It's like saying "what's the point of living well if eventually some people don't live well?" The answer is simple: never stop living well.

      I think most people stop taking care of themselves after they have children. With all the responsibilities, it can suddenly become hard to even find time to run, lift or whatever

        Two points. One, my father had three kids and never stopped exercising. When he was engaged to my mom they had a talk about expectations for marriage and he said he would work hard and be willing to bend on many things but that she had to agree to never interfere with his training, and she stayed true to that. Two, just over half of my close friends are childless and they generally are fatter than my married friends with kids.

      I'm pretty new to shrugs. Started doing 4-6 sets of 20 reps with something like 180lbs. I can defo go heavier but I'm doing them slow enough to get a muscle burn.
      Do I go heavier and do the 12-20 rep range or more volume with not necessarily the heaviest weight?

        Slow and controller is always better. I do 3x20 reps twice per week and increase the weight 5lbs when I can do all three sets. I'm up to 320lbs but my grip is the limiting factor at this point, will probably need to use straps to progress much further.

      I will never understand it. I know a couple of people who were serious athletes when they were young. Pro tennis, track and field, soccer, etc.
      If you see pictures of them at 17-20 they looked ripped.
      But now at 30-40 they're all fat and (some of them) married or divorced, don't give a fuck anymore and only talk about the time "back then".
      Most people nowadays live to at least 80. These gays haven't even lived half their life and already given up? Especially when they were so fit and successful when they were young?

      Maybe I'm the retarded one. I only started getting fit at 25. I was never fat, but severely unathletic and chubby at times. Now at 29 I look (and feel) better than I ever have.

      Maybe it's just hardcore cope on my part and you're "supposed" to peak in high school/college?! But the math simply doesn't check out. What am I doing with the next 50-60 years of my life?

      Of course I'll never be a pro athlete anymore, I'm way too old for that. But neither did any of my pro-athletes in high school friends. All they have is some medals and maybe an article in some local newspaper to show for it. Which is GREAT, don't get me wrong, I just don't get why they stopped when they're not even halfway across the finish line.

      >I’m 30 and I feel like I’m just getting started
      37 here, these guys get it. Health and fitness are not exclusive to young people. If anything, they get even more important as you age. Jack LaLanne kept working out his entire life and reportedly did his standard workout routine the day before he died at the age of 96.

      You need to consider why you work out. Are you eating healthy and exercising for vanity? Are you doing it just so you can have a nice body to attract women? This is probably why most guys are doing it and it's why most guys don't maintain it. Just like women who get fat after they get married, guys who are lifting for a specific goal don't have any drive to keep doing it after they reach that goal.

      Are most middle aged people in shit form? Absolutely. Not even shit form - most of them are literally obese. You have to live in your body until you die and if you're 40

      then your life is only halfway over. Shit, if you make it past 80 then it's not even halfway over. People hit 30 or 40 and think they can just stop. Well, you can if you want to turn into one of these decrepit old fucks who can't even stand on their own.

      Do you want to be a 70 year old who shuffles around pushing a walker or do you want to be Jack LaLanne still lifting in your 90s? Remember that you exercise and eat well to maintain your body in optimal form and you'll never have a reason to want to stop. Being physically attractive isn't something you need to focus on - it's a natural side effect of being fit and healthy.

        35 and just had second kid. I’m with you. Being strict gets hard to balance with kids and work. I have a garage gym and wife has a peloton. I workout based on the time I have. Lift what I want, I like the bike for quick cardio. Then I run or skateboard when I have time. Try to eat decent. More just avoid shit food than stress about macros

        What? You have to keep kids on a fairly rigid schedule, at least so far as sleep is concerned. So you should have time in the morning, over lunch (if you're working at home), or in the evening when they're in bed. It's tough the first 6 months or so, but once kids sleep through the night, it's fine.

        Unless you're dropping them off at daycare or something and fucking up their natural sleep cycle.

        I was on board with you, till the last sentence.
        It's funny how you can't stop yourself from flinging a back handed judgment in the end. Worst part is I don't think anyone was ready to condemn you for stopping to take care of your kids. But the way you choose to bash those of us that don' t, well...it shows some kind of resentment either towards us, or your kids. It's not nice to use them as a shield like that. My mother was like that ''I sacrificed so much for you'', ''I put my own goals to the side'' etc...Not a good look on your part, OP. I was more than happy to live and let live with you. But that last little comment there shows' you're guilty of judgments yourself, however inoffensive you tried to frame it.

      It’s the trap of being “athletic” and being constantly reminded of how “athletic” you are. Most only train because they’re being goaded around like cattle by coaches and teammates, and once that accountability ends, they find out they never really developed the self-discipline to be fit by their own willpower.
      Then they just give up and cope by saying to themselves “still got it” when they pick up an ottoman without throwing their back out. Quite sad really.

        This, it's also why tons of athletes go broke after they retire. No sense of money management, no independent business or side hustle outside of the sport, everyone telling you that you're the best/A genetic freak/etc.

        Well your skin starts to turn into this clear jello like stuff and then your gains will literally seep out in the night when you sleep. Your eyes become sunken, and when I go out in sunlight it burns me painfully. Every time I pass by a hobo while out on my nightly runs+calisthenics I get strange hunger pains too.

        Anyway, it’s not a super big deal. Just part of getting old. Like I said, I’m still nearly as strong as I was in my prime even despite all that! Wagmi

    most people in the middle ages were poorly fed peasants and slaves, might've had endurance and some strength that could beat modern averages but their diet was largely shit except for some regions.

    • 1 week ago
      Anonymous

      Some regions is an important disclaimer. Anglo-Celtic peasants ate a diet that fitness models today would envy aside from all the beer. Lots of whole foods, dark bread and soups, salmon, eggs, lean pork, veggies, dried fruit, a diet like what bronze and silver age bodybuilders ate when not cutting or doing a movie, in smaller portions of course. And the aristocracy ate like roasted chicken, white bread, sweet cakes, etc. "court food" didn't have a good reputation for being healthy.

        This is cool, but any anons who want to try this should get a tracker to do the maths for them via their heartrate and GPS, because the magic numbers in anons math won't be applicable to you, you won't get his exsct results.
        Lots of people track calories in, but unless you track calories out, it's like measuring all the furniture you want for your living room, to make sure it would all fit... but you didn't measure the living room itself.

        I don't care which brand you get, not affiliated with anyone, but trackers are really underrated.

    im 35. literally no one in my age group even remotely gives a fuck about working out anymore. back then, we all grew up watching one piece and naruto and dragon ball and we would work out like hell. we'd do cardio, gymnastis, wrestling, weights, everything. as soon as job and family came into the mix all of my friends just stopped. i feel they value relaxing at the end of the day way more than lifting. physically my age hasn't hindered me one bit but i do at some level think my drive behind being fit is that im the least financially successful among my peers. i don't really have any other achievements.

    Not especially rare, but in my experience it's quite class dependant. Working class men usually start declining in their 30s because they think just because they're exhausted after work and because their jobs used to be physically demanding they don't have to work out. Middle class men tend to realize they need to work and thus stay in shape longer, albeit they tend to stick to cardio. At my job you'll find packs of them out running every lunch break.
