Any Advice for Older PEers
New member and first time poster here -
Let me start off by saying that this is a fantastic forum. Hats off to Thunder all who have contributed an amazing amount of practical advice.
I am new to PE and am pushing 53. In searching through past posts I get the sense that most members are in their mid 20s - mid 30s. Once and a while I see a post from a geezer like myself but they seem to be relatively few. My questions are:
Is there any reason to think that success with PE is in any way tied to age where the expectation is the younger one is the more likely the success? For example, do gains take longer to appear in the older man? All else being equal, is there any reason to expect that potential gains are inherently more limited for the older man?
Size’s PE Database does not appear to maintain statistics on age to correlate age and success. I think this would be an interesting addition.
Is there any evidence that the PE routine of someone 50+ should be any different from someone 25? Reading the posts of younger PEers who jelque for an hour or more is a little intimidating to an older guy for obvious reasons.
I would like to hear from some of the older guys (or anyone else who has an opinion) who might be willing to share their insights on age and PE.
Thanks again to everyone for this great forum.
