I actually feel that "peaks" are reached from mid twenties through mid thirties where you are physichally in good shape and have the wisdom to go along with it. This for example is when most athletes are in their prime and I believe the same applies for everyday ppl though to a lesser extent.

I reach my "peak" after I figured out that Mc Donalds wasn't health food.

Age is just a buildup of toxins and metals in the organs and tissues of the body. If one keeps these poisons out or gets rid of them before they can do damage a person can live healthily for a very long time.
The doctors like to explain away aches and pains by saying "you're just getting old". I never accepted that lazy diagnosis and never will.

I started working as a computer programmer when I was 22 and honestly think my career choice - high stress + poor posture + low physical activity is causing me to feel old before my time.

I started noticing slight deterioration in my physical health around my 23rd birthday. While I don't feel old or bad or anything, I just don't feel as good as I used to. Whats your opinion? When does a man reach his peak and then start the long process of aging?
I think that most men these days are at their physical peak around 30 years of age. If you arranged a cage-match between you at 18 and you at 30, you at 30 would mop the floor with your 18 year old self. You're stronger, bigger and meaner a little bit later.

I think that men are at their professional peak around 40 years of age. You have the optimal combination of youth, experience and wisdom at 40.

That said, 18-22 year old men waste their sexual peak on 18-22 year old women. They should really be targeting 30-35 year old women to get the best complementary experience.

I am 25 and i noticed it is not as easy to eat whatever I want than it was 2-3 years ago. I am exercizing less than I was then, granted, but not that much less. These figures are different for everybody. I am a fan of mixed martial arts, and there are lots of guys fighting who are 19-22, very young indeed. However, it is commonly thought that guys gain levels of size and strength from their late 20s into their early 30s that are greater than when they were 21. It's all relative

men's bodies are entirely done growing and at maximum hormonal levels in between the ages of 21 and 25. The average age is 23. At around this age, a man is a fully developed adult. From that point on, the aging process begins, but takes a good 20 to 25 years to become extremely noticeable. I hope this has helped. And for women, full body maturity is reached between the ages of 18 and 22.

I wasn't done growing until I was in my 20's. I'd say my peak was at 23-ish. I was full-sized and also had youth which helps for recovery and cardio-vascular stuff. I notice now that I don't recover as quickly as I used to in my younger days.

I thought men didn't see themselves aging.
