Will you still be lifting at 50+? Posted on March 30, 2023 by Anonymous Will you still be lifting at 50+?
rip sol... dude was lifting well into his 80's.
I hope so but the odds are that most of us will not be
Most of this board will stop lifting when they leave college/uni lmao
Yep, will be on steroids by then too.
Planning to start injecting test in my 50s. Maybe late 40s. Ride it out till I die doing something active in my 90s
I hope so. My dad is still running competitive half marathons in his 50s so I'd like to think that I'll still be working out at that age.
That fuckin cocksucka shoulda' pressin 20lb dumbbells... and he's fuckin sitting! "Neva had tha makings of a varsity athlete" my ass!
I miss him bros
Hopefully. It makes aging better
The older you get the more important lifting gets. Higher muscle mass heavily correlates with longevity and healthspan.
bro, I'm 49 and just started a test/trem/mast blast. 300mg each
Yes. That's only 15 years away for me. I'm trying to get as much additional muscle as I can right now so when I hit the 40s to 50s test plummet I can maintain fairly well as the old man of the gym. I plan to lift until I'm dead like Jack LaLanne.
Honestly, test doesn't really plummmet that fast in your 40s.
I made my best progress in my early 40s before COOFID fucked things up for over a year for my training when I had to work 80 hour weeks and had to put lifting on the side for a while.
43 is when I finally had visible abs for the first time, and when I was my strongest pound-for-pound. Only thing that fucks me up closing in on 50 is that my knees get a bit cranky from time to time, but other than that, I still make progress and don't plan to slow down.
I'll probably start TRT though when I do hit 50, as the dick doesn't cooperate as well as it used to when fucking, but that's the only downside to my age.
my father has a 3.5pl8 bench and hes nearly 60 and natty
so yea im not just going to let him beat me
I'll be lifting 90+
There's something cringe about flexing your fit body after 60 year mark.
Maybe im just a gay.
Do you think grandmas care about getting stuffed in their dry pussy with by a fit old bald wrinkly man?
You should know that old people fucking is a regular problem at retirement homes. They still wanna fuck.
I started at 21, I'm 49 now and still lift heavy 3-4x/week and won't stop until my body forces me to.
I can still hit a 500 squat to depth any day of the week, and am getting pretty damned close to a 600 lb. deadlift (pulled 3 singles off of a 2" block a few weeks ago), so fuck getting weak as you get older, keep it up and you can stay strong for a long fucking time.
Good job man, right there with you. Started at 18, now I'm 37. Never gonna stop.
All you zoomies reading this- don't ever stop lifting. I regularly get mistaken for a college student. Happened again just last week while I was getting my hair cut. Lifting is the fountain of youth.
yeah, keeps you young and occupied. i don’t want to be a flabby alcoholic like my father
50 is still young. Machines are there for a purpose. Make it a joy, not a cope
