  1. I’ve been intermediate fasting for the past 6 months, and have lost 40 Lbs.. I quit smoking 3 weeks ago, I’m 45 years old and have a little girl that’s almost 5 years old.I want to be around to see her grow up fall in love and all that good stuff. I have a really bad knee (Advanced Arthritis) And got a steroid injection about two weeks ago and have been pain free since… Now I can go for longer walks/hikes to work my body and lungs. I commend you sir on your change

  2. Great topic – often ignored. Survival, like life, is more than equipment or techniques.

    Injuries accrued over a lifetime can change some of the exercises that “work” for any given person, but the key is to just get going with what you can. At 60, I can’t lift as much OR as often, but I’ve adapted to do things differently. My Boy Scout is 14 & I couldn’t go to Philmont with these old knees, but I went on training hikes with him & we hit the gym together in preparation for it.

    Strength training is key, though – cardio may keep you ticking, but strength will keep you in the game!

  3. Brian, Could you ask your coach how a person can grow into squats if they are not able to squat currently at all?

  4. Thanks Brian, I have been waiting for this information for a long time and just ordered that book. I have a free weight system at home but have not used it much. I’m 54, obese, weak, and now I have direction and motivation. Thanks Bud!
