Thanks for posting that up Ben.

For me, it validates my decision years ago, when I started lifting again, that lifting follows health, and that longevity is my goal. I'm now in my 50's and couldn't be happier or healthier. I have absolutely zero pain or tweaks and cannot wait to get out of bed each day.

I cannot imagine living the rest of my life like "Keith".

Good point Jim. What always strikes me is when lifters look back and say, "I would have done this differently, rested longer, not went for this, deloaded, etc."

I like the intensity George Leeman puts out, but he did make a post about living in the moment and dying happy before 30. Gotta make wise choices.

Great article...

When your young you tend to not consider what you are doing to your body... And right now there are probably young ones reading that and saying "it won't happen to me"...

Boy that's an interesting article. This subject is really avoided. You see it bad in football players. Everyone I talked to that is in the mid to late 30s and can't get out of bed do not think it is worth it. The wisdom segment at the end of the article is good. I totally agree the inflammatory diet along with stcking roid on top of roid frickin destroys your body.

Most everybody deserves and should have their "moment" in their chosen sport- - like the lifter in the article desiring to be the first lifter ever to squat 1000 lbs over the age of 50, or winning the championship, or what have you.

I already had mine at my first meet - squatting 405. Pulling 500 at my 3rd meet was also a moment for me. More will come, but only as my body allows.

Ive tried really hard to maintain some balance in my life. In all fairness it's not as hard because I'm not some really talented lifter who could really get on a world stage. If that was the case it might change things. I have to work my everloving ass off just to be a little stronger than the next guy. I'm happy to sacrifice some for lifting because I love it and you have to have something in your life that's just for you. That's what lifting is for me. But in 10 years? Maybe it'll be golf, or something I haven't even tried yet.

I've got a son who's going to be here in 8 weeks, and my daughter is 2. Luckily I don't have to give up much time with them to train, because that's simply not something I'm willing to do. I'm not putting myself in a situation where I have to look back and lament all the time I missed with them. Not if I don't have to. That's more important than any number, especially since in the end, numbers are fleeting. The second you rack the bar after a PR squat it turns into something you DID. For the rest of your life it will be something you DID. Being a dad isn't something I once did. It's something I'm going to be for the rest of my life.

That is FAR more important than lifting will ever be.

My entire current program is based around this. I'm already in my 30's, so I'm theoretically coming out of my prime. I'd much rather SLOWLY progress and end up winning meets as a masters lifter who's fairly healthy then try to bust my ass now and end up 45 and completely broken.

God, I'm so mature. What happened to me?

At least I still love punk rock. Just like I said I would when I was 13.
