I think aging is blown out of proportion
As someone who did sports when i was younger I was always lead to believe that by 30 you have deteriorated physically. Now at age 32 I realize thats a load of crap. I think you get more aches and pains if you do too much at 32, like squating heavyweight 5 days a week, but I think if you train in a smart way your performance is barely impacted by 32. I think what has more to do with it is if you sit around too much by 32 you've allowed yourself to get too out of shape and it seems harder to get back. Im curious how it will feel at age 40. Because so far I dont feel much.
