    I'll be 35 in a few months and I've started "lifting" at 20. I can pretty much claim I'm at my natty peak.
    Needless to say I mog 99% of men 30+ and pretty much all zoomers since everyone is at least skinnyfat.
    I'm not balding which I am very grateful for. If you are balding then it's pretty much over looks-wise.
    Advice to newbies - stay consitent over the years and you'll be rewarded. Don't expect to look good if you're lifting for less than 3 years. Don't go over 15% bodyfat.

      Not looking my ISTtest right now because I’m nearing the end of my final winter bulk.

      > how much has it realistically changed your life/outlook on life?
      Not much. Life goes on. People make positive comments or ask questions about how I did it. When I meet new people they are more friendly and respectful to me.

      >Do you wish you got fit years before and think life would be different if you had?
      I was fit-ish until about age 27 - it was really just 27 to 32 where I became unfit. My life was still very good, but I enjoy exercise and feel more positive and energetic when I’m exercising regularly.

      This is correct and I’m already pushing it.

      >how much has it realistically changed your life/outlook on life?
      Quite a lot.
      Becoming more stoic, embracing the struggle, setting high goals for myself has made me a much better person. I dare say it has finally made me a man.

      >Do you wish you got fit years before
      Hell yes

      > and think life would be different if you had?
      It would have been different in "quality of life" aspects, but getting fit wouldn't have changed my fate.

      >Bulked for 2.5 years
      >did a cut when covid started (fasting 3 days a week)
      >Right pic taken shortly before my 33rd birthday

      Fasting is fundamentally different from going low -cal because "restricting calories" lowers your metabolism whereas "time-restricted eating" doesn't.
      If anyone tells you that "fasting is just CICO", they're either uninformed or are israelites.

      With that out of the way:
      >2 fasting days a week will be enough for consistent weight loss. (1 day a week is for maintenance and 3 days a week - if you want to go fast)
      >Fasting days don't have to be consecutive but it's better if they are
      >You can and should exercise while fasted if you want to prevent muscle loss. I've done squats at 90% of my 5 rep max on my second consecutive fasting day
      >You will lose some strength while cutting -fasting is no exception. If your 1RM drops by over 15% - take some weeks to recover your strength before fasting again.
      >If you find yourself suffering while fasting, then it's GOOD. You are paying the price for your previous indulgence
      >My rule of thumb is that i lose 300 grams of FAT per fasting day. The weight loss on the scale is more than that, 300g is what goes away forever with each day you fast

      These guys get it. My wife is a great person. Younger guys undervalue how important that is. Once you’re in your 30s and 40s it is so obvious, especially when you meet people who married poorly. That shit will ruin your life.

    I wish I got fit before of course who wouldn’t? But I don’t get hung up on it. I kept trying to lift in the past but never got a long term routine. I’m 37 and I’ve lifted consistently for 2 years and I feel great. There is no point in mourning the past and what you didn’t do, I just know that in five years I’ll wish I lifted now. Feels good.

      You've got to be more careful about exercise, but that's what everyone should do. Once you tear some muscle, that little fricker is going to pester you for years. So, yeah, leave more time for rest, that's the main piece of advice, I suppose.

      On the other hand, it feels really good to slam that 20s (or even teen!) pussy. My previous gf was 25, and the sex was reeeeally good. And the good thing is that you still have time, a lot of it (unless you're balding, sorry, baldbros, I really feel for you, but - tough luck), unlike women.

      Sorry, I'm drunk. Anyways, life's good here, don't be afraid of getting older.

      Your choice is the same as for men in that regard: being unhappy for the rest of your life that you didn't get to have the good years while you were younger, or working for it to make the rest of your life the best it can be.
      Having children and a getting a significant other is the most time-sensitive part of this. While you can go back to school, hustle and work your ass off at any age of, the energy, time and availability of options does decrease slower than for family.
      Don't self-sabotage by overthinking why you can't or couldn't get your life on track to be what you want. Write up how you wish your life would be in 2 years, and how you could get there. And then work your ass off to be the person you want to be.

      Not every man is red pilled about women. There are a lot of lonely morons on with good jobs that would happily marry a +30 woman who looks good and acts like a loving virgin wife.

      Eat healthy, Lose the weight, build the ass. Pay for a good boob job if you can afford it.

      But the most important part: learn from your past mistakes and don't look only for chads.
      They know you and they will not take you seriously unless they are a Lot older than you.

    Didn’t start lifting seriously until after 30 because I got a new job that’s fairly sedentary. Was always strong by Borneo standards and in decent shape, but I got very strong, and went from dad bod to old school chub boxer physique in the first year, cutting now to get that big and lean look. Health wise all my normal aches, my “bad knee” and shoulder issues etc. have all more or less disappeared and I now know it’s because the surrounding muscles weren’t doing their part. Wake up with more energy, sleep better, just all around better I guess.

    When you're young you have to conquer your education and career and gotta find a woman and have kids and buy a house and try to maintain all of that. By the time you are mid 30s or 40s you can really focus on health which is nice. It's easier to focus on fitness as I'm older but it's also easier to lose. When I was younger I could drink 24 beers and then get up and run a mile no problem. Now it fricks my metabolism for a week if I eat like shit one day.

    Started at 34. I had my shit together (wife and a kid) though. In a sense my son was the reason I started. It hasn't changed my outlook on life (I was single for most of my 20s and the blackpills you swallow during that stay with you for life), but it does make me feel substantially better mentally. I'm less anxious and I have an easier time getting things done. I do wish I had started earlier for this reason, it would have made life easier. But once you have kids you tend to spend very little time looking back.

    I'm 31 and I've been trying to get started for several years. Now that I'm living on my own I've actually managed to push myself to at least start calisthenics and dieting, and even after only a week or two I've started feeling better about myself and my body. I'm already down a few pounds, and I'm trying to work on upper muscle strength (I've already got enough leg exercise biking to and from work). My ultimate goal is to get ottermode.

    But yeah, I think that I share the same sentiment as a few other people in here: I wish I had started sooner.

    Lifted on and off since I was a young kid. I'm 33 now and have been going at it for two years. Definitely get laid more and get more attention. Don't really care if I had started sooner, because I gained some valuable insight being a fat frick. Also stronger than I was when I was 23/24 and in the Army. It's also cool being the fittest one and all of your friends are embracing being a lazy fatass. And all of the women in your age range are going to opt for you since you're the best physically. Unless the want to go for a dude much younger, but most still are chasing their little marriage dream lol. Also I feel like picking it up later in life makes it more of a habit than a casual hobby. Id rather start in my 30s and do it the rest of my life as opposed to being swole for a few years in my 20s then giving up. just do it either way.

        Yes but unmarried 31 y/o are increasingly bitter, woke and feminist around here with no end in sight. The good ones are married already, hence why I'm looking for younger ones who have less exposure to this /misc/ bullshit.

        On a side note, coupled women are looking and engaging with me since I began taking care of myself

          Kek, my neighbours wife started feeling me out once I got my shit in order.
          Being as socially inept as I am, I couldn't bring myself to ruin their relationship by having her cheat on him, or tell him and they'd break up (they have two kids). Instead I got him to work out with me, he's lost a lot of weight, and she's backed off again.

    I've been relatively successful despite not being fit in my younger years. But I was unfit in the outgoing, drug using, partying type of way, not the obese neet incel way. I started lifting and taking gear after getting married and having kids and it hasn't improved my life in the slightest tbqh. I enjoy it though. I wish I'd started lifting and doing steroids in my 20's though, where I'd have had more opportunity to flex on it.

    >how much has it realistically changed your life/outlook on life?
    A lot. Better mental health, enjoy life more and generally being more positive about the future.

    >Do you wish you got fit years before
    Yeah, but I wish more that I had the willpower to actually stay fit when I was on a roll. Might be some advice for the youngens: Stay on it. Doesn't matter what you do. Lifting, cycling, swimming, basketball. Do something that keeps you in shape and gets your heart pumping a few times a week and do not stop.

    >Do you think life would be different if you had
    Not drastically. But I would've managed a few setbacks much easier. Good phyiscal and mental health can do wonders when life fists you with lemons.

    >be 42yo boomergay
    Had phases where I lifted over the last 10 years or so. Usually 6-8 months. But then I either got injured or life got in the way and I quit doing anything for a while.

    We men have the advantage that age damages us a lot less than women.

    A fit 37yo succesful woman would lose againts an average early 20s woman.

    A fit 37yo succesful man would win againts an
    average early 20s man.

    49, started doing some serious kettlebelling last autumn. Have recently included pushups and pullups too. Never was a slob but was a bit skinnyfat.
    Getting psychogically obliterated by a narcissistic woman helped muster up motivation too.
    Wished I had started sooner ofc but I enjoy the challenge of starting late. Wouldn't advise it to anyone tho, as not everyone has the luxury of being able to be a lifetime NEET.
