    Maybe. I guess it depends on how you train. I'm 27, 5'5/185lbs and squat around 400lbs. I have a hard time believing that's going to go up much over the next decade or two without a serious lifestyle change (i.e., supplementation, two-a-days, etc.) At some point you start fighting to keep old PRs rather than hit new ones.

    I do see this being a little different with oly lifts, which are so technique-driven. The increases in efficiency that come with experience can outweigh the decreasing testosterone levels.

    At 185 and a 400lb squat, I have confidence you have a long time til you reach your barrier.

    My coach made all his biggest lifts after the age of 45. And you'd be surprised at how "technique-driven" powerlifting movements are. There was a period of time he was stuck at a 650 or so on his deadlift and within 3 months and some technique correction from a friend (Steve Goggins ;) ), he was pull 100# more.



    I'm excited to get into my 30's because I'm confident I'll be breaking some huge records if I keep training the way I do and stay away from serious injuries.

    I can't even imagine squatting 4x a week and being able to put max effort into it. Right now I squat 2x and pull once and feel exhausted with that. 4x seems crazy. Dat DOMS..

    DOMS not even once srs, like half an hour after the session I feel normal again. It's not back squats 4 days a week. Back squats Tuesday, front squats Wednesday, Back squats Thursday, Front squats Friday. Ocassionally front squats on back squat days as well if I have time, PR erryday. Front squats are getting hard to increase though. I don't deadlift at all though so that probably helps. Also it takes me about an hour and a half to do 5x5 squats if I want to PR every set, dem 15 minute breaks between sets hnnnnng.


    Cutting feels good man, before my cut I could barely get my inzer belt on, like maybe first or second hole, now im on the 6th hole.

    I felt bad going anything past five minutes and that was only when I was doing heavy (for me) deadlifts or squats. Plus, it's soooo boring to just stand or sit around in between sets.
