How many of you young bucks can lift 405 on bench, clean form, without bouncing the weight off your chest? I have seen a 70 yr old man in CT lift 675 2x on flat. MikeS I have seen lift 405 5x on flat, and 3-4x on incline. The point is, respect the people who have been lifting a while. I see alot of your punkass 20 yr olds think there are the sh*t, and could not lift 2 marshmellows with a tooth between them. How many of you older guys 35+ see these jackasses in there gym.

I do have respect for alot of more older friends. hell a guy I sometimes train with is in his early 50s and can bench in the 430 range for good clean reps. But bro I read this as very condescending, just because some one is old and strong doesnt mean crap. Its how they got there, some are just geneticaly strong individuels. Its the ones who came from the average genetics and train like they mean it I have respect for.

Funny - I don't think form really has anything to do with age :confused: There are a lot of young bucks more concerned with getting it up than form - but I've seen this with seasoned lifters, just not near as much.

Myself, I've developed bad shoulders over the years and don't have to impress anyone by doing singles - "how much can you lift syndrom." I shoot for 5 reps as the least and if I do less it's because the weight was too much.

My spotter is a big-ass Hawaiian who is a MOTHER regarding "strict" form. These days on bench press, he's hollering at me to go faster - he says I'm going too slow HAHAHAHA! Remember, I'm just a little guy and the most I do is 5 reps on bench press at 345.

Thanks John for the props! Now I will give credit, in that John has nagged me to improve my form in the past and I listened (finally).
And Im one hard headed mofo, I dont usually listen much-but when a guy is as strong and muscular as John I make exception.
I do care about strength as I am not a pure BBer, power matters to me as much. But not so I get fat to have more power...
Yup there are some punk kids in our gym that sneer at me and others, they are 18-21YO. Man I have been lifting longer than that and to me that IS disrespect. On top of that they are not strong 300max lift. Which is fine, except if you are an asshole about it.
My opinion you should lift the positive as fast as possible-otherwise you are PURPOSELY not contracting the muscle as powerfully as possible. And in that case-no overload, without max effort/contraction. And of course when the weight gets heavy this explosive type lift does not really move that fast!

well, i think brute, physical strength is the last thing that leaves the male body as it gets older. Fast twitch reflex and overall agility as we all know are the first to go.

Hate to pimp myself, but I did a clean 500 flat today. Unbelievable how happy doing something, like a strong lift, can make you!
My strongest day ever (bench), Id have to say! And that is cool at 44YO-with 25yrs lifting behind me. Its never too late for us old guys!

Wish Johnny B was there to see! :D
