    At what age are men strongest?

    It seems that powerlifters are strongest in mid to late 30s as that is the age that most lifters break records. I have read numerous article published in medical publications that claim men start to lose muscle mass after the age of 35 if nothing is done to prevent it. Many lifters break world records after the age of 35. It seems that most people believe they are at their peak in the early to mid 20s but I don't agree. If we agree that trained lifters are strongest between 35-40yrs old why is this the case? Does it take that long to build the muscle mas and technique or is it simply the age? I would reckon that most men that do not wieght train are weaker at age 35 than they were at age 25. What are your thoughts?

    It SHOULD be their prime at 22 to 25.

    But one can reach a peak strength up to 45 years of age IF the said person missed his opportunity to reach his prime.

    The athletic performance peaks in the mid twenties claim is usually expressed in terms of conventional sports. Years training/knowledge gained carries more weight in PLing than just an age number.

    Yeah. I think absolute strength is one of those things that hardly goes away as you age...

    Which probably means lots of former elite weightlifters in their 40s squat 700 pounds ATG raw without being able to clean as much as before (probably less than 400 pounds).

    everybody is differant.
    age,race,drugs,diet,genetics,injuries,stress levels,past and current training schedule are all factors that could play a part in peaking. whilst the most commonly accepted age is 25-30 it is by no means the end of the subject.
    its an infinite equation based on each persons own combination stats.

    I guess the question is what do you consider "strength"? Is it powerlifting/strongman? Is it an ability to pick up and carry random heavy stuff that you don't train for?

    The answers will depend on that.

If we agree that trained lifters are strongest between 35-40yrs old why is this the case? Does it take that long to build the muscle mas and technique or is it simply the age? I would reckon that most men that do not wieght train are weaker at age 35 than they were at age 25. What are your thoughts?

    You're an idiot. Most weightlifters can kick ass in powerlifting competitions. Granted, powerlifters will GENERALLY be better at the lifts and will GENERALLY have more success in the sport (because it's their damn lifts!), but that doesn't take away the fact that it's NOT the other way around.

    For example, Leonid Taranenko, at age 30-something squatted 830 pounds raw, ATG, with a pause at the bottom.

    Can Scott Weech or Stan Efferding do that? No. But you know what? Let's be fair here. Let's say that they CAN do it. Let's say they squat 900 pounds raw, ATG, PAUSED.

    Would they be able to lift more than Taranenko in a WEIGHTLIFTING MEET?

    I would bet my hard, thick and long penis that they won't.

    Now stop arguing.

    In my broscience opinion I think that you are strongest between the ages of 28-33. Just every top form athlete I have seen has been around about this age. Obviously you will have people who hit their peak earlyier or in some cases later. But on average I see that 28-33 seems to be where men seem to be in their prime.

    I think everyone "peaks" at different ages. I've lifted off and on for several years and then when I was 35 I took an entire year off from working out. Basically did nothing, but go to work, do things with family, and enjoy other hobbies. When I started lifting again at 36 it was difficult and I felt like I had aged more in one year than I had my entire life...lol. After a few months I realized it had more to do with taking that year off than it did with getting older. I've been back at it for about 6 months now and am stronger than I ever was and still seem to be improving although I haven't maxed out for a while. My cardio isn't near as good as it once was, but that has more to do with me putting more of my emphasis on gaining strength than bag work, wrestling, or other cardio. I have regained my flexibility that I had before taking time off and I honestly think that has a bigger effect on me feeling good again than anything else. I stretch every day...standing upright and bending only at the lower back I can put my palms on the floor...laying on my back I can touch my knees to my ears beside my head and touch them to the floor...I can sit on my butt and put the bottom of me feet together pull them in to my crotch and push my knees to the floor. Being flexible really helps me feel younger and is probably why I've been lucky enough to never sustain a serious injury which I think injuries over time can have an effect on someone as to feeling older as well.

    now there are some opinions from personal experience loaded with broscience...lol

    I think it has a lot to do with when you start training. I was talking to a former competitor who started lifting at 14, went on the gas at 18, and peaked around 24. He said he thinks that with hard, proper training most guys will peak within 10 years or so.

    Of course, I don't know if this is true of somebody who is not taking the gear.

    Which probably means lots of former elite weightlifters in their 40s squat 700 pounds ATG raw without being able to clean as much as before (probably less than 400 pounds).

    Weightlifters train early, which is why they PROPERLY reach their peaks.
