    I was that guy in school too. Now that I'm a teacher, I love it when it comes back to me. And my students know it.

    Was thinking about another lady, though I don't remember her name. That's still pretty hardcore, though.

    I think keeping active in mind and body for as long as possible is beneficial. In fact I can see myself training more when I retire from work although that's a while away yet (I am now 36).

    well it is no doubt, but at 36you have little idea how difficult it may be to do MA training in your retirement years

    there are serious difficulties with your hormonal balance to over come, and having the mental state to push yourself is also difficult. That said its a lot easier to maintain fitness in to your twilight years than it is to regain it, if you lose it, but still by no means,easy when your body is in a constant,state of decay
