You read “Fit Over 40”, “Fit Over Fifty” you ever see anything about being fit over 60? Or God forbid, 70? No, because you young pups think we’re over.
You think we’re just waiting for the ward nurse or the Grim Reaper.
You are always talking about how how hard is to train and gain muscle in your 40’s and 50’s.
There are a lot of guys my age and younger who know how train and get results even in their 70’s. I’m one of them.
You are under the false assumption that our testosterone levels are down around our ankles and we have nothing left to discuss.
And you would be wrong. I see articles and videos on line about men in their thirties and forties consoling each other about low testosterone levels and how hard is to train.
I know what the cure is and it ain’t laying at the bottom of a syringe.
I love how you think 40 years old is “getting up there.” You have no idea.
Did you ever stop to think that while you were being conjured up at the drive-in we were being physically trained to fight a war?
We got our butts kicked all day every day and we flourished.
A lot of us are in great physical condition today on account of it. Being in the military was the greatest honor I have ever experienced. It should be mandatory.
At 74, I am a friggin’ athlete. An elder athlete. I have no restrictions and no limits. I can out run, out fight and out fuck guys half my age. I am fully present and accounted for.
So the next time you want to have a discussion about training in later life, don’t exclude my generation. We are still at it.
And still getting results.
Thank you. 🙂
