Is it true that powerlifters reach their prime at age 40?
A long time ago, I used to workout at this Gold’s Gym. There was a tall and muscular guy with a 600-pound raw deadlift. I once asked him for advice with training and he said two things.
Number one: Stay injury free.
Number two: You reach your prime at 40.
Is this true? It’s too late for me to aspire a gold medal in weightlifting. But perhaps there’s hope for me in breaking some sort of state record with powerlifting. My body is built to deadlift a ton of weight. I used to deadlift 455 pounds at age 17.
