…you have an OAP bus pass, your hair is grey and your ass is old and wrinkly?
I got to thinking about this when I was watching a video about ketogenic diets by Peter Attia (been meaning to start a thread on that - someone remind me). He gave a pretty inspiring before/after in terms of his health markers from switching to a keto diet, and said how pleased he was to be entering his 40s healthier than his 30s.
I can definitely see myself switching to a long term keto diet eventually. I am sceptical you can gain appreciable amounts of muscle on keto (some people probably can but I don’t believe I could), but the way I see it I’m 30 years old now, so I’m realistically only going to be trying to get bigger for like another 5 years, after which point I think I’d probably just maintain and lift for health purposes.
So keto diet from then on to stay lean and healthy, showing off my sexy muscles forever.
Training wise I don’t think I’d try and push the boat out too much in terms of weight lifted, and will probably do way more things like supersets, complexes, shorter rest periods, etc. Maybe I’ll feel differently when I reach that age but that’s what I’m predicting now.
Has anyone else got any kind of long term idea as to how their training might evolve as they get a little older, is it just heavy for life, bro?
