I am studying this book now and it is one of the most informative I have read in quite a while, and I read a lot of books.

Scott Iardella shows numerous reasons why strength is so important all through life, but especially as you age. He covers some subjects in depth that many people may not have looked into before, like muscle wasting (sarcopenia).
The Edge of Strength: An Unconventional Guide To Live Your Strength And Discover Your Greatness

One thing I hate is someone trying to make me think, act, and live how they think I should at a certain age.

They first try to get to you when you turn 50 and they send you an invitation to join a very large “geezer’s” organization (it starts with the letter “A”).

Forget it! Quit calling me a Senior Citizen, I keep that I am only approaching middle-age in my mind! I refuse to think old!

I feel 1/2 my chronological age.

Each year they throw more stuff at you that they automatically “just know” you have to have (this is in addition to all the prescription medications for  high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression and sexual dysfunction that they have conned many people into using)

  • free dinners to discuss retirement/investment options
  • discounts on burial plots
  • discounts on cremation services

They can flush all that junk!

All of it is for their profit, not your health and well-being.

I ain’t going for any of it!

  • I will continue to lift heavy stuff and get stronger every week
  • I will stay med-free
  • I will eat clean and get enough rest
  • I will stay mentally tough
  • I will never surrender

Folks, don’t buy their lies!

Think for yourself and take action every day.

Surround yourself with strong, smart, trustworthy people and you will prove all the slick marketers wrong! You DON’T need  their junk!
