    Is over 40 realy old?

    I have been competing in sport for over 30 years, lifting for over 25...... Am I old?

    Im comming up to 44. I dont feel old, I still train and do all the same things in and out the gym I did 20 years ago.

    I guess from the title of this thread (over 30) I should be changing routines, exercises, nutrition.

    Am I doing my self any harm? Do I need to be doing any thing drastically different.

    Age is in here *points to head*...you should keep doing what your doing IMO, it's gonna keep you young for a long time!....Theres a 70 year old lady in my gym who's extremely active, she looks like she's 55, and acts like she's 40. I think if we all stick to what we're doing (the members of this board dedicated to health), we're doing to live a long time, but not only that, live healthy and feeling young well into our 70's. People will live longer and longer with all the advancements...I wouldnt be suprised if a good amount of the kids in my generation live to 100

    All the time spent thinking about your age is time spent that you could do something else.

    The point of a healty lifestyle is too stay young even if you age, i have seen guys my age 33 look like damn 50, with all the alcool abuse and drug they took.

    You look to be in great shape and will be for a long long time.

    Stop worring 44 is still quit young.

    no worries

    I feel great. Ask my 24 year old wife

    But havng read through some threads in the "over 30's" section about HRT, HGH and Test it got me thinking

    Should I be booking in for level checks, am I at the age that its now all down hill and need to be looking at treatments to keep me going.

    Guess the doc is the one to ask first off.

    Hey bro welcome! First you are not to old man. I would talk with your doc and get some bloodwork done. Once armed with the blood test look into your options. I assume you have insurance. Do a search on Oasis I hear there good. It could definitely be beneficial for you. I am getting old myself 31 yet I come from a family with good genes. My great grandpa live to be 97 and my great grandma lived to be over a 100. My dad is 56 and still looks 40. Well good luck and ski a great winter.

    Not old at all my man!
    I just had blood work done 2 months ago after three years.
    My last work up three years ago was average in most areas except the triglycerides and blood pressure.(Both were high) I was 40 then and decided it was time to get back in the gym and be serious about it. Not to be a bodybuilder, but to get in shape and have people look at you and know that you work out.
    My doctor told me two months ago that the numbers in my blood work up were on par with a 36 year old!
    Talk about motivation!

    From your stats - you gotta be 30 bro!

    I like being 40, however, I can feel that I am not as strong as I had been five years ago. It does take an extra effort to get to the gym and it takes extra effort to ensure that recovery and rest are up to par. On the positive side, with or without supplements I can keep growing and getting stronger.

    Aw your just a baby (age wise) don't ever worry about the numbers. They mean nothing. There are women that are much younger then me and they think Im their age! I look younger now then when I was in my 30's because of diet and fitness.
    Keep working at it!

    No man keep going - I'm 44 too and hard at it. Just make sure you keep up with the cardio workouts to boost our slowing metabolisms and stay after it.

    going to be 49 this month and feel better and stronger than I have ever felt. I lift heavy with guys 15 years younger and keep up to them or beat them. Age definitely is in the mind.

    I am over 50 and am stronger than I have ever been in my life. I have three younger brothers and I look younger than them by years.

    Age is a mindset.

    Health = youth.

    IN my twenties and thirties, I smoked. Once I got that monkey off my back (which is really, really hard to do) everything kicked in.

    I am in better shape than when I was 30, a lot smarter than when I was 20.... Life is good.

    I'm 45...been lifting for over 30 yrs...just noticed the difference in my Fat percentage (IN other words...at 45...its harder to burn fat).

    Strength wise...i'm stronger now than i was in my twenties...NEVER DID JUICE! My bench is and my squat are 250 at 80%... Lifting is only part of my reqime...Ju-jitsu (being able to kick some ass keeps you young)...dancing, chasing broads, etc...

    I am planning my first cycle of test and anivar. I wanna say i tried it...at least once...before i leave.

    Of course the face is not as taunt but....hey...i got money now...i can afford the best plastic surgeon (lol)

    Yeah baby!

    Not old. 35 here and girls 24 think I am their age. Eat well, exercise, stay out of the sun damage and avoid injury. Live forever and date girls half your age. oops, your married.

    I think you're too old to stop.

    Honestly, once lifting or any other physical activity becomes such an important part of your life, it hurts you physically to give it up.

    If you stop lifting now, look forward to stiff knees, sore shoulders, and a hell of a hard time starting back up.

    I'm turning 38 in a couple of weeks and, even out of shape, I can run some of the young pups into the ground.

    No one mistakes me for any younger than my age unless I have a hat on though, I've been turning gray since I was 16. The chicks dig it though.

    Age is a number. 37 here and I am stronger faster and in the best shape of my life. I am blessed with genes that make me look younger and ppl think I am in my 20's all the time.

    HOWEVER I truely believe if I did not exercise and eat the way I do that would not be so true. The fountain of youth IMHO is time in the gym coupled with consistance every week. Never give up and keep the fountain flowing.

    24 year old wife. Hmmmmm fat out of shape 40 something year old dudes do not get woman of that age unless they are rich as hell. Or look good. Enjoy life.
