    Now at the age of 51 I have nothing to complain about, no illness that bother me, I recover good from relative high volume and high frequency training, no injuries or joint pains to write home about. My strength, endurance and flexibility levels are pretty much the same as in my twenties, yep I can even bench press and leg press more weight for more reps now! So something must be wrong since everything seems good, so a disaster will probably hit me tomorrow or the day after…

    I feel like that in most places. and i'm not particularly imposing at 5'10" and currently 182 (down 10.5lbs since winter bulk). I think it's attitude/posture whatever.

    I agree, it has to be attitude/posture. I'm a small female (5'2", ~110lbs) and people get out of my way all the time. I've had people claim that I "intimidated" them. Uh... really? Now if only the motion sensor light in my garage would see me and light up when I go out there!

    I was told by the director of new projects that they had to keep me in my position because people were afraid of me. I'm not sure why they are afraid, perhaps my take-no-shit attitude intimidates them or because I report directly to the chairman of the corporation, who never returns my phone calls or emails, but I'm telling them that.

    Attitude and body language works regardless of your size.

    I'm 58 and have started going to a gym in Suez with some of my guys and there are other men that come from Suez. Almost all of them are 20 to 30 years younger than I am, have spindly little legs and I'm out lifting most of them. And they seem a bit put off by my aggressive attitude, arms full of tattoos and working out barefoot.

    Yea, I have a few aches and pains but nothing that I can't work through. Still have a lot of work to do on my abs.

    Same here. Everybody my age, or close to my age, that I know are taking at least one prescription medication and various OTC meds. Seems like they are sick all the time and complain about their illnesses and injuries constantly.

    I was at the supermarket the other day (I don't usually shop there) and at least half the people there seemed liked zombies, lights on, nobody home. I'm not sure they'd move out of the way no matter how intimidating someone seemed, they didn't appear to notice anything. Some were overweight, some were not, young or old it didn't seem to matter.
