    Howdy, men. I think we need a forum for those of us who are (let's say) over 60, but still have the stuff.

    Because, asshole, people age and have different skeletal and muscular differences.

    You, too, will understand one day. As far as sex, it just gets better as you get healther.

    Excuse me, but when I get a shot in the dark with no meaning, I shoot back. Maybe you know this jock, but he doesn't know me or I he.

    Don't punch me for someone who doesn't communicate. Let him speak for himself.

    Perhaps not, but we're already starting to know you.

    I'd have done the same thing as Alpha....sometimes a one-word response looks rude, especially without any context. And since older guys tend to get some abuse in our community, it's not a leap to see how it could rub someone the wrong way.

    Anyway, I'm only in my 30s so what do I know about kicking ass when getting older? I just know I started the fitness thing later than some and don't regret starting at all. I'd love to see more experiences so I know what to expect as I age.

    jo2hotbod saidWhy


    For the same reason there are G.A.Y. threads.

    At least this could have some helpful information, even though I don't qualify yet at 53.

    Oh wait, as someone said in another thread, "don't respond if you don't live there."

    Oops, my bad. icon_biggrin.gif

    @OP: I'm not sure why Jo2hotbod asked "why?" If that was his way of asking you to be more specific, I think he could have made a full complete sentence to make his question more clear. There are so many hateful ageist on this site (not saying he is), so it's understandable you took it negatively.

    I personally love seeing guys of all ages here, because everyone has something unique to contribute. Maybe if you created not one, but a few different "Over 60" threads....one maybe about exercise....one about nutrition....and possibly one about another topic you're interested in. That way people would know exactly what the topic was about before clicking on it. Just a thought.

    OK... well I think the intent of the thread is a good one for older guys and the best approaches, ideas, etc to remain in shape. We covered this on my webradio fitness program this season... "The importance of fitness in aging" and I had a trainer there with an emphasis in aging studies, an 80 year old marathon winner and a surgeon (who has been an avid health enthusiast all his life).. and it was a great show.

    Everybody will get older eventually, it won't be as easy to look great as it is now for those of us who are much younger and I'd like to hear anything positive that might be offered. Potential here for a great discussion!

    Well, I'll agree that I think you jumped a little too fast and a little too harsh with your response.

    Having said that, any discussion related to exercise and nutrition for older guys (and although I'm not in the qualified group yet, I'm close and would benefit now from shared information), would certainly be of value. I find myself slipping in so many ways from the peak (albeit a low peak) after hitting age 50.

    Motivation, body response, metabolism, developed habits, relationships, all contribute and become road blocks in developing and/or maintaining that 'perfect' body. icon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gificon_neutral.gif

    It's all about perspective…old guys driving old corvettes…. good… old guys driving new corvettes… a little weird icon_smile.gif Really though what is an old guy. An old guy is someone that has let themselves slip…physically and mentally. Their real age has caught up to or surpassed them. It can happen at 40 or 50 or more. They can be on meds, smokes or sugar. There are some people that i have drifted away from because they are old and yet they are younger then me. They've got into the negative territory…. they don't want to exercise or do physical work. They are quite content to to sit back and enjoy the good life.

    So, older guys that are fit are probably younger than what they think… icon_smile.gif
    Enjoy life and keep active…..

    Thanks for this post. As one of those guys over 60 I have more of an appreciation for guys around my age that take care of themselves. I go to the gym almost every single day. M workouts vary from an hour to almost two hours at every session. I also do cardio at least five times a week. No physical regime is complete without watching your diet. I avoid "junk" food. I try to eat whole grains, lean meats, lots of chicken turkey and fish. Fresh vegetables, juices and non-fat dairy products.
    I would like to think that I am in good shape. Many times at the gym I am mistaken for someone half my age. I have a 42" chest and a 30" waist. As some of you know I am also a competitive ballroom dancer. This past year I won my second world title in my division. Yes, I still have the stuff!

    BS . I have my own views
    anyway . for all those who think who
    can be young for ever
    ..... what the fuk Ur tomorrow is
    its just not about sex
    its a bit about caring ( people who r in need of love etc. )
    if they r shit then no purpose in showing anything
    anyway they need love too
    they might be lot of young sweeties who like to
    Date older guys. that can never be an insult to a mature young guy
    anyway . all be happy .

    Health and fitness is a lifestyle for all ages. Not sure why it's necessary to create a separate sub-forum.
