Age: 49

Weight: 6

Height: 230

Bench not sure

Max out: not sure

Reps: 250 x4 about a week ago

I still dead lift and squat as well. Maxes I have no idea. 

The thing to realize most of us older guys are mainly into maintenance mode now a days. Great job and keep putting in the work young man. The key is consistency. Even on days when you feel like shit is when you can get some of the most rewarding workouts. Form and quality reps will help from getting injured. I've had a few over the years. Take about a week off every 3-6 months really helps with burnout as well.

Age: 29

Weight: 176

Height: 5'8.5 (fu that .5" is important ?)

Bench

Maxout: Best was 355 but 330 at the moment.

Reps: 

Deadlift

Maxout: Best was 606 but around 540 at the moment. Did 507 beltless last month, first time over 500 in two years after buggering right hip lol.

Reps:

Squat Did 405 beltless years ago but left knee plays up whenever I go heavy so haven't pushed them in a long time.

Maxout: 

Would reiterate what Hoth said, avoiding injury is everything. Always better to take a few steps back and reassess if things don't feel right or aren't going according to plan. If you don't do much stretching or mobility work start now.

Also, here is Julius Maddox setting the new raw bench world record at the weekend and then nearly killing himself afterwards lol (he was ok though)

Thanks Sharpe, I only try bench press maxouts if I have a strong enough spotter with me. I workout every day I don't get sore often, If I do get sore I take cold baths/Ice the area that is sore. Thanks Sharpe for the advice and for your post.

At least I do ok in other areas, wouldn't want to be 6+ with a small pecker ? Not that I'm insinuating anything....? 

@Ge Ge Would avoid ice to be honest, especially for any kind of run of the mill lifting soreness, it disrupts the healing process and will slow down progress.

Fuck, buddy, I used to hang 100 feet above the dock, with one-hand--each--as my brother and friends climbed back down the crane, all saying "Fuck, Paul, you're crazy!!"

I'd switch hands, still dangling 100 feet off the dock boards, hangin' with one hand holding on and yelling "Confidence, guys, ypu gotta have confidence!!"

As I'm dangling by one hand, 100 feet in the air . . .

Life of a Bristol Bay, Alaska, commercial-salmon fisherman.

Before my Dad bought a hydraulic reel, we used to "pull-in" by hand, and hand-pick every one of those gill-net-caught sockeye salmon.

Carpal tunnel?  (Yoda) "Hmm?"

When you have to wake up and "pry" your frickin' fingers loose, you don't know "pain;" that is, of course, and unless, you're a beautiful mother giving "natural" child-birth.

Lol, buddy.

Commercial salmon-fishing in Bristol Bay, Alaska, where I used to lose 30 lbs. (14 kgs) in 3 weeks paid my way through my Bachelor's degree; M.B.A. was all on me . . . Ayaq
