You're concerned because he's 50y/o (like 50y/o: could mean he's 40 something)? That may mean that he has a lot of good information to pass along, certainly probably more than a teen would, so he has knowledge on his side, possibly (since we don't know him).

The fact that you barely know each other would be no different if he were a teen that you barely knew either.

Obviously, watch out for the weirdos, they're everywhere in every age group (literally every age group), but other than that if he has information that helps you get where you want then you'll have to decided whether you can handle being around someone older; I guess.

Yeh, he used to compete and he trains with some huge 20 years old dude which he is a great guy but he doesn't always trains in my gym, sometime he goes to others...
Also, the older dude always seems cranky and angry lol sometimes he creeps me out.
I hate the weirdos... They are all the time ask me to flex O_o

Don't act like a douche because you lift.
Help those that are weaker.
Stand up for what's right, not popular.
Open doors for women.
Earn respect, don't command it.

Can't agree more with this.

This is great advice at any age.

I'm helping as much as I can but some of the newbies just keep doing what they read in the magazines... I always suggest them with the nicest and try not to criticize them.
The guys whom I help have great gains! It's really fun to see that.
Thank you for your tips!
