In order to "Lift For Life", you need to train smart.
Let me explain...
As of the last 6 months or so, I've been really focused on perfecting the form of all my lifts - rather than constantly stressing about going up in weights.
Since this, my main goals have been to improve form, create more tension, slow things down, control the movement, etc...
My intent, is to OWN every single rep.
In doing this, I have felt better than ever.
Recovery has been great, joints feel great, low back is completely pain free, I get a better pump, I actually am enjoying the workouts a little more, and I haven't lost any muscle or strength - in fact I've been slowly gaining muscle for sure and when I decide to test my strength, I'm confident it'll be up.
The point of this post is simple...
I listened to too many mentors and older coaches in the game talk about their beat up bodies and how they wished they focused on all of this way back.
I'm taking their advice now, while I'm young, so when I'am older I don't need to recover from years of wrecking my body.
So whether you're 50, 40, 30 or 20... you should be focused on training this way so you can have longevity in this game - or recover, so you can take the game back.
Unless you're a competitive power lifter, strongman or something... lift the heaviest shit possible.
