Re: Over 40's - Are you still working towards goals?
strength can continue to grow into middle age.
2 years ago in first PL comp, aged 41, i benched a tough 182.5kg at around 104kg on the comp day.
3 week ago pressed 195kg pretty easily, just missing 207.5kg easily 10kg lighter on day.
this was also a GPC british open-age record under 90kg (207.5kg would have been all-time, all-fed record)
i've also taken my squat and deadlift from mid 200's to over 300kg for both in that time frame.
look at masters lifters like ricky goodyear, joe ladnier - putting up huge totals into their late 40's, early 50's
back in the 80's fred hatfield set the squat all time record (any weight class, any age) with 1014lbs at only 255lbs bw aged 45.
