    I started 2 years ago at 39. Lost all my fat (that’s where my profile pic is from, pre-gainz post-deficit), and since have added some appreciable muscle. Plan is to compete in a couple more years, maybe by the time I’m 45, and aside from a year or two half-assing it in the gym at university, I’ve never lifted before.

    You’ll be amazed at what happens if you dedicate yourself to it.

    I lifted a lot late teens / early 20's. I didn't start up again until 37-ish.

    For the most part if you're doing all the right things (program, nutrition, etc), there is an imperceptible difference in gains. I just found I get aches and pains more often. Otherwise it's the same. I grew like a weed once I started back up again, both in size and strength.

    Purely anecdotal though. Everyone ages differently. Other than some greys starting to show up in my hair, I could pass for late 20's / early 30's pretty easily. Other people my age that I know look much older. *shrug*

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    OP hasn't replied on this thread since August 31st. Maybe time to put this thread into storage
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
