Just want to ask the older guys like myself a question about PR's. When you are training and wanting to hit a PR, is the PR an all time best or what? I will be 49 years old next month and when I'm training and wanting to hit a PR it is getting so hard to do so. I know what all of my all time best PR's are from 1990 to present and use this as my guide. It is very hard to beat a PR from when I was at my peak about eight to tens years ago and some even longer than that:help. Do you reset your PR's by age, weight class or what?
I personally don't, no. I am 42. At some point you most certainly will no longer be able to progress. That varies from lifter to lifter and drugs certainly make a difference.

I know a lot of lifters also keep track of weight class specific PR's so if you previously lifted in the 220's and now you are in the 198's you would re-set for PR's specific to that weight class, and just documenting them differently in your training journal.
Hope this helps.
