thanks, KSman

Yes, we need it back. I have aches, pains and prescriptions that’d I’d like to discuss with other old fucker’s like myself, but am not willing to post for the younglings who are currently indestructible to ridicule.
(Just turned 35, not really that old).

It was one of my favorite parts of this site and now it’s gone. I miss it. I’m so old.

Sure would be beneficial to me.

I looked at it a lot.

Yep but it should be renamed to “The OLDER Lifter” forum or “The Over 40 Lifter forum” Really you have 39+ year old Mr/ Olympia’s running around. 35 is just not old enough.

Yes. 40+

No, but you compensate by being stupid.

Hey hey, just my way of saying I agree with you.

On this one.

For once.

:wink:

         Yeah, definitely bring it back. Make it over 40 though, that's when the ol machine really starts slowin shit down, not when you're 30something.

       After all, we were doing it before all the 24hour nautilus singles club, talkers not lifters, types overloaded the god damn gyms with their ignorance and stupid gym ettiquette. 

     They hang around drooling over bitches sittin on equipment, when they should be lifting and not making small talk about the chick next doors' jugs or whatnot. 

         AAhhhh, the good ol days! Ha, lol.. That's why I got the home gym goin on like a mofo now.
       Cheers ya fellow old fucks!

Well said! Im setting up the big ass home gym,sick of waiting for machines or the bench while some dude parks his ass on it for 5 minutes or more of rest.What part of Cali you in?

It was a great section of the board. Older people usually equals more mature people.

Geez, if I had said this, I’d have been flamed. Tallguyy76! Keaster! It’s torching time!

I was sorry to see the Over 35 Lifter Forum go and would welcome back an Over 40 Lifter Forum. I am an avid poster on this site and I feel my Journal, which many said was helpful, got “lost” here in the Bodybuilding section.

     Ha,ha..well I'm over here in the bay area by SF. Yeah, I know that there would be a bit of it when I was younger, but nothing like what you have today out there. 

It’s sad IMO. It was fun in the hardcore places like Golds, World, Powerhouse…but then sure as shit the big nautilus machine ate them all up. And then it turned into a singles bar practically, with the “trainers” being a bunch of kids too with no real world exp whatsoever.

I miss the gym experience, but not the bullshit that goes on there now. My gym is spot on, squat rack, weight assist.pull up/dip, commercial flat, flat/incline/decline, preacher, tuff stuff seated leg ex/curl machine, seated calf raise, lat pull/tri press, and yes a treadmill too.

The only things I would enjoy is a nice leg press, and maybe a prone rowing machine, and the cables are only good for high cable pulls right now. Oh well, I think I got most of the bases covered.

My mom passed away three years ago, and that’s what I did with about 10,000.00 of the inheritance. She knew I loved bodybuilding and she would be happy for me I’m sure.

The other reason is that I’m changing careers goin to school at night, and taking care of my daughter in the daytime, so we don’t have some quack watching her in day care. I got lucky that we had her a couple months after mom passed, it helped a lot with the pain I was going through. Lost a mom, gained a daughter.

Anywho, that’s where it came from, still miss the good ol days, but these days are just as good for building some muscle eh? lol.
cheers guys,
ToneBone

      I agree, I missed your journal, hope to see it down the road though. Nice to be in good company in the old guys section. Funny, I don't feel "old" yet though, lol...

TC, the tribe is speaking…

Thanks. I kept my Journal posted in the Bodybuilding Forum. It’s current, but a little hard to find, unless you scroll down to page two or three of the Bodybuilding section. My journal has had more than 15,000 views, which is not bad for an Old Man’s thread. LOL

If you are looking for a volunteer, I would be happy to be a Mod for the T-Nation Over 40 Forum. I am fairly active in bodybuilding web circles and currently moderate on four boards.

Me neither. To me, age is a statistic, not a burden.
