But First.....Janet Lee-

Intensity? As we age do we no longer have the ability to focus on the physical intensity it takes to create or maintain a youthful physique?

I , for one, say "yes"! We are the same ones who put in hours upon hours to complete or struggle through college "on a dime". We are the same ones who supported children , sometimes "not so grateful children", till they could finally walk out the door self -sufficient. It's that tenacity that fuels our physical intensity.

Starting, no matter what age, is sometimes the most difficult part. How to find time, energy, etc.? I am a morning person and would much rather get up before daylight to watch the sunrise as I knock out another "set of 20 reps"! Years ago that was when I ran my hardest miles and then later chose to use those morning hours to "rock babies"!
If you are meeting your nutritional needs, supplementing, and using creatine and whey - energy shouldn't be a major concern. Now channeling that energy into blocks of time for your physical advancement is the key.
Intensity , form and dedication. These are what unite us in this quest . Heavier weight and lifting to failure, adequate rest and feeding "your muscles" - one day at a time, every work-out.
Won't you find time to send me your "feedback"? Email me at: jleemarino@yahoo.com
Have a kick-ass workout for me today? Age is number, not an excuse. jlee
