    That is amazing. My 80+ y/o father in law celebrated his 80th by doing, 80 each pull-ups, sit-ups and push-ups.

    So here's a question, what changes have you older Kenpoists made in your regimen to address the aging process?

    It's amazing how difficult that is for some people. Wisdom comes with age, as long as you're paying attention.

    Amazing. I try to stay young. Which is kinda hard. It's interesting that some people try to become more mature. OTOH hand it always depends on where you are, and what your goals are.

    And wisdom does not come with age. Age comes with age. Everything else, you have to work for.

    It's something I'm finding I really need to pay attention to. As I've been dealing with physical issues these last several years, there are times I just feel old. If I wasn't paying attention, it could have easily become the new standard.

    There's a reason why I put a caveat on wisdom coming with age. If you're not paying attention as you go through life, you're right, age will only get you age.

    We don't stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing.
    Train your mind as you train your body.

    If you train your mind, it'll stay fit and flexible. Same holds true for the body.

    BTW, the guy in the video started working out in his mid 50s. I think it paid off.

    No argument here. I'm back in the gym with a personal trainer, and my previous training/profession is a significant benefit when it comes to a baseline. It feels good to get a good sweat going. I plan on spending Wednesday hiking through fields looking for that tasty treat known as a pheasant. Playing is very important. I'm also close to getting my golf score below 90. All in all, I really have nothing to complain about, but when you set a high standard for yourself, it's hard to settle for something less. The loss using physical ability in any regard is difficult.

    This goes back to the discussion of wisdom. Do I lament what I've lost to age, or do I adapt and overcome, and use use wisdom to help me continue to lead a happy and healthy life? Kenpo is still important to me, but I'm not going to be beating on heavy bags anytime soon. That doesn't mean that I can't incorporate aspects of Kenpo into my life. C'est la Vie.

    Know and manage your numbers. It amazes me that more people can quote every stat associated with their Auto or Computer, but can't do the same with their own body.

    Resting HR, Max HR, Body Fat %, Collesterol, Blood Sugar, Red/White Blood count, etc.....

    In addition most people monitor what they put in their auto/computer to ensure max performance, but then turn around and continue to shovel garbage in their mouth.

    If you fall asleep at the wheel, you will surely run off the road.....
