yeah...at 66 a guy keeps most of his strength if active and healthy..in fact you can often keep getting stronger into his 50s. Just a personal side note, my father passed away a month ago at 79....he could beat me at arm wrestling up until I was 20....than over the winter 2000 he got pneumonia and got weaker and lost weight..and I cut down on my distance running (went from running 30 miles a week down to 4 miles) started doing powerlifting and took in allot of protein and creatine...went from 160 to 195 or so, and after that i could beat him at arm wrestling without too much effort. Had he not gotten sick though, it would likely have been a battle that spring.
