Hi all, new to the forum and will be scouring numerous threads for ways to improve my weight training (I've been training for two years and am an addict!!). Very impresed with the journals ive looked at so far, especially the transformation winners, some amazing achievements there.
Ripe old age of 36 so a slightly late starter but im in healthy shape and love weight training, not too many aches and pains (as yet) and have made some decent gains in the past 2 years.
One thing I was wondering, I saw a report that gave some statistics, and basically it indicated that in your 20's you should be able to move significantly more weight than in your 30's, 40's etc. I always heard that strength is the last thing to go (after marbles, taste in clothes, an appreciation of music on MTV, and the ability to look cool dancing at weddings), is there any basis to this?
That basically means I'm (we're) at an instant disadvantage, and means that what you can achieve weights wise is limited by age. Horrible thought, especially as my training partners are over 10 years younger than me, and im only just able to stay ahead of them weights wise as it is!!
Oh well, I suppose I should accept that ill weaken with age, but still feel super strong (even though im only super averagely strong) and progressing well.
Only thing that isnt improving is my height, I take loads of protein and creatine and am growing every which way except up, and at 5"7 that's a concern, anyone got any tips?
