    maintaining a healthy mental side is the hardest part for me. after crossing the 45 thresh hold, you have to work 3x as hard and really pay attention to what you eat just to maintain and not really gain at this point that just getting to the gym can be tough!! so far , the love of the iron still wins

    I turn 65 next month and have worked out mainly off and on since the '80's. I moved recently and have the best trainer I've ever had and making great progress. My doctors are digging the changes, and I'm setting new PR's all the time. The others in the gym say I'm the most dedicated person there.

    Started lifting when the book Arnold "The Education of a Bodybuilder" first came out. Been working out on and off for over 30 years. Finally did my first Bodybuilding show this past year. Masters, over 50. Working on making solid gainz for the 2015 season. I will be bigger and harder.

    I am 61 year old and started training seriously in 1980 (37 years). I did train some when I was younger but I was definitely not very serious about and weight training in sport was not really encouraged much. I competed in the sport of powerlifting for 27 years (best-950/525/800) and retired to do more bodybuilding training. I competed in the 275's and 308's. Now I weight 275 at 6'1" and a very low BF (<10%). My training has gone from lifting heavy 1 rep maxes to 8-12 reps to failure. I now do one body part per day with about 15 work sets and 5 different exercises. I train 5 days a week. So the volume has gone way up and the intensity way down.

    My diet had gone from eating as much as I can to make weight to one of high protein and low carbs. My calories have dropped from 10K/d to around 5K/day. I had several injuries in powerlifting, one leading to re-attaching all three vasti at the knee and a shoulder. I have had no further problems since stopping the heavy weight at less than 5 reps. I am retired from work now and have more time to dedicate to eating properly, resting properly and training for about 1.5 hours a day with 2 days off. I am much more muscular and cut that I every was at a younger age. As many years as I have in gyms I will never be able to stop. Most all of my adult life has been in a gym.
