this is for any lifters out there who are, shall we say alittle more mature
I'm 42yrs old divorced with 3 kids in college, I've been lifting weights since 1979, all of my teens and 20's were spent with crappy weight sets and equipment lifting in smelly basements or garages or anywhere else I could find,gyms were not on every corner when I was a youngster, I didnt step into my first nice gym until I was 33yrs old, it was as if I'd died and gone to heaven. The problem however was that since I spent all those years with out a gym to go to my leg work was non existant apart from running and biking so my legs were disporportionate in size and strength to my upper body, and by the time I found a gym a bum knee prevented any serious leg work. Here I am now however in my 40's 2 yrs after knee surgery ready to finnally get serious about my legs
better late than never I guess.truthfully though how much progress can I expect at my age with long thinish legs a.k.a long ankle (no calfs).I'm 6' 1" 195lbs with a 33 inch waist and 47 inch chest and no stranger to hard workouts only missed a handful in the last 26yrs.
