Wanted to get your opinion on what your thoughts on lifespan and the size of ones body mass are (in relation to TC’s article).
I have always thought about this - but not sure which would be healthier. For instance if ones weight was supposed to be around 190lbs-200lbs without lifting weights - Is it better the person be around 230lb muscular with somewhat visible abs or would it be healthier to shrink down to around 205ish lbs. and still be strong for instance but a lot leaner? I am talking longevity wise - not pure hypertrophy.
The other conundrum is also losing muscle mass as you age, but I feel strength is more of a determination of health and longevity than pure muscle mass (which I understand still aids in strength - but it sound like may cause the heart to work harder).
Also thank you for all the information you have put out over the years. Your opinion does matter and you always have an interesting take on scenarios so that is why I also ask.
