    Add the nervous system controlling the energy, as in strike a nerve and get temporary paralysis along the nerve (such as the "funny bone"), and recruiting more/the right muscle fibers through nerve transmission, and you've got my definition of chi/ki.

    It's not that hard to do if you didn't do much in your 20s. :)

    In all seriousness, do you recover like you did in your 20s?

    It takes longer to bounce back then it used to. I started noticing the difference when I was 31-32. Slight injuries and sourness that I would be fine with after a day or two suddenly took almost a week to get over. I watched my diet and did what I could so it wasn't that bad, but I was certainly there.
