40 Yr old, All Natural

40 years old
6’
180
Body fat lol
All natural, no pre workouts, just aminos and vitamins with protine
Bench 125 dumbells 3x
Dead lift 315 3x gas to burn
Squat 295 3x gas to burn

Haven’t maxed in 3 or 4 years not my style, each rep is a FULL rep not I bench 400lbs and the bar doesn’t touch your chest lmao!!! Same with dead lift and squats, I pause at top and bottom for a true rep. FORM BABY!!!

what does gas to burn mean?

Means I could probably get another 3/4 of a rep without help from a spotter. I never “max” to see how strong I am because its a hard strain on the body. The way I build strength goes something like this

Example::: If I can squat 200 lbs 3x and I’m spent ill focus most of my efforts in the 180 and 190 ranges.

Props for hitting the weights at 40 and staying natural:) Kinda hard to judge from just that one pic though. Delts look like a strong point. Chest could be thicker. Pics of back and wheels and I’ll grade you:)

Ill get em up, nothing on this worth uploading just tank top pics, and thanks for the props! I just posted screwing around bored. Ill take some serious pics for this though.

Looking good at 40 bro. Keep it up!

Keep going strong man. Us 40+ guys have to train hard to keep up.

Not bad bro keep it up

Good work. You look heavier than 180 at 6’ for sure.

Delts and traps looking strong! Chest and arms showing good development too.

Awesome shape, natural or not.

Looking good bud!
