At 60, I can still do everything I could do at 40, just often MUCH slower. I am continually stumbling (sometimes literally) onto new and creative
ways to injure myself. Working out, I am in super slow motion, very controlled, and pass on the heavy lifts of my youth. I am forever motivated by
the desire to not have moobs.
I can't complain though. Sometimes you might think that growing old sucks, but it is just a continuation of your growth and learning experiences;
you might not be the physical bear you once were, however you might discover something else in your creativity that gives you as much pleasure.
There are two pieces of advice I want to pass on; these things aren't age specific, although they become much more important the older you get.
1) Stretch........ slow, no bobbing, gently for a long time and often. If your back has to take the strain when you bend down, you run the risk of
back problems. Stretch everything. 'nuff said.
2) Sleep is vital. Your body doesn't really heal effectively without quality sleep, and this is also true with building muscle and workout
I am sore somewhere all the time every day. It's okay. It's better than the alternative. Most of the time I feel good. When I was in my 20's, I
never thought I would live so long.
