My friend John Wood recently sent out
a powerful email message titled
"Letter from a Quitter."
It was about a guy in his 50's who quit
training because no matter what he did,
he couldn't match what he could do in
John contrasted THAT approach -- the
QUITTER'S approach -- with letters he
received from older trainees who were
hitting it hard and heavy and having
the time of their lives.
I thought that was a pretty good
approach -- because I get the same
sort of letters and emails.
Not too many of the "I QUIT!" letters
and emails -- although I do get one
or two of those every year.
The vast majority of feedback from
older trainees is about how GREAT
their training makes them feel --
how much it adds to their lives --
and how much they look forward to
each and every workout.
And most of them tell me how much
Dino-style abbreviated training has
helped them -- and in particular,
how much they like the abbreviated
workouts in GRAY HAIR AND
And although they're older, they don't
worry about it -- and they don't lose
any sleep worrying about what they
could lift when they were 20, 30 or
40 years younger.
Nor do they worry about having to
adjust their workouts a bit.
They just do what needs to be done.
No big deal.
Remember, when you're in your 50's
or 60's (or even your 40's), you're
not a kid any more -- and you have
to adjust your training.
You have more dings and dents and
you don't recuperate as well.
So you train smarter. It's not
And no, it's not easy. Sometimes,
it's darn hard. Growing older is
NOT for sissies.
But whatever your age, if you're
reading this message, you're a
Dino -- and Dinos don't quit.
That's one of the things that makes
Dinos different -- and one of the
things that makes them winners --
and one of the things that makes
me so very proud of each and every
member of the Dino Nation.
As always, thanks for reading and
have a great day. If you train today,
make it a good one!
Yours in strength,
