    How old can you be and still gain strength!

    Hello all, I am still trying to be stronger and as I turn 57 this year I am wondering what my upper limit is! My best lifts this year raw are squat 230kg, dead 270kg and bench 145kg. Current body weight is 90 kg, I vary weight little these days, I used to go from 75kg to 120kg, My point is that my lifts now are as good as and my total is higher then ever before, I seem to have less injuries; other than on motorcycles, But the sticking point is where I am at. I have mates in Australia older then me and still going.

    One problem here is I am in Thailand and the Thais are not strong or serious in the gym. I have nobody here to really push me. I think I need some new motivation. Any old lifters who have advice on the blues? Is it just that after 32 years I need to be kicked out of a rut! I wanted to get to 300kg squat and dead lift and a 180kg bench. I am frustrated! John

    Thanks guys, Yes its easy and cheap here. Just I think I am having a flat period right now. Plus I had surgery twice in the last 12 months, removing steel plates from my legs and just recently a umbilical hernia. I think you are right though, there should be no limits!! Lets get stronger! I want to be the best I can be, and to make elite class would be great!

    I hope we can meet one day at a comp!

    Thanks, John

    Hi John,
    No matter how old you are this video is inspiring.

    Go to youtube and search for "Powerlifting: Bobs Gym Vets". I couldn't post the url due to a post limit.

    Don't stop lifting. Best of luck with your goals.

    Damn good lifts... You can go as far as your mind will let you. Louie Simmons is still strong as hell with all those injuries and is in his fifties. He squatted a thousand at 52 I think or so?

    I'm almost 50 (will be in May) and joined a powerlifting team a few months ago and have been making great strength gains since. But to give you an example of how you're never too old to be strong, our oldest team member who competed at the Mendelson Meet with me last month is 80.

    Hello, Yes its great to see old timers coming out and trying. When I left Australia my mate was 63, 65 kg, former world champion and current Australian open champion! Weight lifted at the 72 Munich Olympics. Now I am feeling much better, recovered from my operations and stronger than ever. The goals are still there. Its funny but now my waist at 102kgs is the same size it was at 82kgs 30 years ago!

    I may not be as sexually active as I was at 30 but hell, I would not want to be! Daily is fine!!!! (ok! 2 days) The best thing is, I am still motivated and happy! I hope you do well first meet. Open real light, 3 whits lights then go!!!!! Do not fail trying to much as opener. Have fun. John
