One of the major bummers for the older athlete, is that no one knows how to make people younger. All we can do is slow down the rate of aging. The healthier we are, the slower we age….meaning the more slowly we progress toward that visit to the pearly gates.
How can we balance risk and reward, prioritize which interventions to pursue first, how to tell is we are getting a positive or negative result from our interventions including pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements. These are the questions answered by Daniel and Rick.Read More

Physical intelligence is the brain’s ability to figure out how to perform physical skills better and better. It learns by doing.
But we forget. We lose skills we don’t use. That results in losing basic life skills if we withdraw from life. The more we pull back from activities that might result in injury the less capable we become over time. We have to find a way to stretch ourselves in what we already know or in learning new activities.
Exercise is not enough. We need unpredictable environments. An opponent across the net. An unstable trail. Something that engages the brain in adapting skills to accommodate new information. We retain physical skills and we exercise the brain.Read More
music can positively influence intensity, fat-burning, as well as encouraging overall brain and body benefits. However, it needs to be used intelligently. Best to avoid the stress-induced pounding drums and driving bass lines,While this no-pain, no-gain music can be enjoyable, be careful out there. If you want an aerobic workout to burn more fat and increase energy, listening to intense music can be problematic. Lower, rather than higher, heart rates do that better, and also reduce the risk of injury and even overtraining. Tone things down a bit for a workout that increases fat-burning and carries over to the rest of your day.Read More
A bike is a marvelous extension of the human body. Riding a bike is a like full-body meditation. When you do it right you are immersed in the present….lost in the pleasure of your body working well. That is, as long as your bike doesn’t cause pain. Some people never have problems but others have to struggle to get the right combination of gear, body function, and set up. For those of us in that last category, a good bike fitter is priceless.
So why is good bike fitting so hard to come by? It turns out that it isn’t hard if you know what to look for.
