Training for Longevity

I know.

I know it’s cool to train heavy, train hard, and train fast these days.

And I love it too, probably more so than anyone else.

But one must take into account longevity.

In other words, you have to look long term. You have to look out for your future self.

Is this person, the future you at 60, 70, 80, 90, or even 100, going to be injured, broken, and beaten down from years of hard training?

Look, strength training should be a lifelong activity. You should be able to do it until your very last days.

It should give you more out of life.

This won’t be the case if you’re putting the pedal to the metal all day every day.

So yes, go hard.

But be smart about it.

You want your future self to thank you, not curse you.
