Suddenly I was seeing gains I hadn't had in years. It kind of proved to me that I only know everything there is to know about training, up until the second where everything changes. If we're training correctly then things are changing all the time, which means I don't know shit!
You said it well and have clearly experienced what I was trying to say but to a greater degree. And the point you make about it being a turning point that allowed you to excell and exceed is actually motivating me that this old dog still has some hunt.

Thanks,

@flexappeal you're totally right about how each thing works for you. And like chicken_hawk said, it's about keeping an open mind and actually being willing to try new thibgs. I might be wrong, but BB'ing from 1960-1990 progressed differently than BB'ing from 1990-2020, but they're both 30 year windows. And the knowledge and science that's out now can help us make better and more-informed decisions.

It's the accepting that is the hardest part particularly when surrounded by younger athletes who haven't yet experienced those limiting factors and make progress regardless of their stupidity. I can honestly say that pharma can't bridge the age gap. The only thing that can come close is our mind ie experience and wisdom. I detest pulling back and changing, but these are the very things that spur progress.
