“Posture and movement”

This is number one as far as I can tell. So much of our body’s internal mechanics are dependent on movement. The knee joint is a prime example - most of the flesh within the capsule is avascular. When walking the alternating load bearing by your limbs creates a vacuum pump that circulates nutrients through the ligaments and meniscus. Bone density is intimatey linked to compression force. Blood flow up the leg is assisted by the calf contracting. And thousands more.

When it comes to physicality, range of motion and muscular balance is king. (I speak generally here in, cerainly not calling you out RG) Can you press your ear flush to one shoulder without raising the opposite? Can you reach behind your back and grab ahold of the opposite shoulder? What was once normal, natural range of motion has become anything but - which is slowly killing us due to the body’s need for full range to function.

You mention yoga... While it’s a fine sport for general maintenance, the Westernized incarnation falls far short of its roots. Pranayama is key! Breath is life! Can you manage the Breath of Brahman with ease? An 8 second inhale, a 32 second retention, a 16 second exhale, with an 8 second hold? Unconciously, throughout the day?

Such esoteric methods of respiration are invaluable. When we are born, every single bone in our body is packed with red bone marrow. By the time we’re 65, our red marrow sits in parts of the pelvis and most of the vertebra if you’re lucky! All else has yellowed by then - porous and pocketed with nothing but fat. Hyperoxygenating the blood has been proven to regenerate this lost marrow. So, get on top of your breath! The Wim Hof method is perfect to master first. Or open an oxygen bar.

Lastly, cold/hot exposure! Constant cold exposure strengthens the micro-muscles surrounding every blood vessel, blood too is life! Exposing oneself to intense heat near daily will force the body to create heat-shock proteins (sauna at 195F for 20+ minutes 4+ times a week). You know the Maillard Reaction? The delicious crust on that pan seared steak? Oxidants have done the same thing to all of our ligaments by the time we’re 65. Unless you’ve made yourself resistant to being cooked!

Good luck Brothers! I hope to see more tips and tricks through the thread.

Dear god, that Top Gun meme is horrifying!

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. - H L Mencken

Porscheguy will turn 43 this year, benches more than his bodyweight, runs a mile in 8:20, and sits at 14% body fat. He wears the same size jeans he wore when he started high school.

Seriously, if you’re approaching or over 40 and don’t feel you can describe yourself as aging like a fine wine, then you need to step up your game.
