5’9” 41, 180 lbs DL - 435 Back Squat - 385 Bench - 305 Lifting off and on for a decade or so but did power lifting for about 5 years. Could pull a lot more when I was younger What program are you following?

C2 is right. I never thought I could break and lived the shut up and lift mentality. Honestly as long as you maintain solid form and build a solid core/frame/foundation you can improve into your 50s. It’s more mental than physical. There’s a reason 90 pound mothers can flip cars over to save their children. What the human body can do is amazing. It’s an extreme example that shows what chemical we can produce and it’s system improvements it causes but from Something I read s long time ago if you get seriously electrocuted your muscles can contract enough to break bone. So the capacity is there. It’s just a matter of reworking your brain to make it work better and overcome the blockage

195lb male 43 yo Pre-consulting (6 years ago, so 37 and 185 lbs): Bench: 315 DL: 495 Squat: 405 Now, after 6 years of consulting full-time - about 50-75% of each of those. Though working back into it. This job can take a toll. Have been lifting for about 28 years - some years much more than others

I definitely get that they’re busy, but man, I’d really appreciate a yes or no answer from them, as opposed to waiting on the bench haha. Thank you for listening fishes lol!
