Due to the fact I have an uncommon zest for life, I’ve decided that living slightly past 100 is in order. I will accept 98 of these years to be with unaided mobility, no chronic illnesses present and higher than average cognitive function for a ninety-something. The final two, it’s okay if everything goes to hell just to cross the finish line. My top three steps to get where I want to be (in no particular order):
Refrain from use of ALL medications
Stress management - Study and practice well above some crappy corporate ‘we care about our employees’ 4 week course
Live with intense purpose
No male relative at least 3 generations back has made it past 90
Not sure if long-term powerlifting is conducive to the whole mobility at 90 thing <<< looks at foam roller
Suggestions? Think genetics makes the final call? Anyone who makes it to 100 with me, I’ll buy some protein… or a steak… or whatever you buy each other at that time.
