To be able to do that, we must always be ambitious, and have a mind with the desire to improve ourselves constantly. It doesn’t matter how old we are, if we have that mind, we can always keep improving, therefore that mindset will keep us young too.
Japanese Martial Arts master, Yukiyoshi Sagawa (1902-1998) was training everyday, until the day before he past away at ninety-five years old.
He did 150 push-ups easily when he was ninety years old.
How many young people can do 150 push-ups properly?
He said, “People who think they can ignore training their bodies and only work on techniques are amateurs. They don’t know anything. Actually, if you can’t prepare your body properly, you have no hope of ever perfecting your technique.”
Persistence and constant exercise are the most important things to keep improving physically.
You don’t have to do too much, keep your pace and get an exercise routine that best suits you.
Our general knowledge is that we get weaker as we get older. I don’t believe that, and I don’t admit that. The general knowledge is not always right.
Let’s change that, and get stronger as we get older!!
