Fill in the blanks–

  1. live a long and meaningful life
  2. die anyway

Cynics, skeptics, and negative people like to dwell on answer 2. They love to tell people that all their efforts to be healthy  and their self-discipline are pointless wastes of time.

The stories still circle around and around about the person who “they say” smoked like a chimney, drank a lot of booze and lived to 100 years old.

My choice is answer 1, to live a long and meaningful life. Answer 2 is inevitable for every person (unless the LORD returns first and gets us off this planet).

I recently said, “Life is short, why make it miserable too?”

So stick to your discipline and healthy habits. It is worth the effort in order to have a wonderful life full of rich and treasured memories.

“This is the day the LORD has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it.”

 

I think it is great to train team sport athletes  for those who feel called to do it.

However, that is not our focus here at the Cave.

I just train regular folks who want to be healthy and strong.

My doctor asked me several years ago if I wanted to live long or live well.

Both would be great, but if I could only pick one it would be to live well.

Living to be 100 and  all full of tubes and on a gazillion meds is not a life I want!

I see example of people who are living long and well almost every day, like Jacinto Bonilla, Robert Durbin, Carmen Caputo, Peter Ragnar, Stephen Santangelo  to name a few.

I met a WWII Veteran the other day who still trains at the gym four days a week at 94 years young!

I see other guys much younger already falling apart physically. Why is that?

Barring any unpreventable disasters, tragic accidents or diseases, many guys are just sedentary and lazy.
