Lifting with degenerative disc disease

So admittedly I'm not 35 until June, however I figured this would be the best place to ask this question.

High systolic blood pressure

Hi, For a year now I get higher blood pressure readings on the systolic side. It's always near 145, while diastolic is steady 80. I've heard that this can be caused by my arms growing thicker so I had my doctor test it with a larger sleeve and still got the same readings. Anyone else noticed...

Greetings - I was wondering ... How many pull-ups do you think the average 50-year-old American male can do? And how many pull-ups do you think a fit 50-year-old male should be able to do? In part idle curiosity, but mostly trying to set a reasonable target for myself.
