Train for Longevity.
"No pain, no gain"
"Balls to the wall"
"Go hard or go home"
"That workout kicked my ass!"

You lack a real strategy... and love stroking your ego...
✗ Your strength, mobility, and flexibility will be mediocre at best.
✗ Doubt creeps in and you start thinking, “I’m too old”.
✗ The painful cycle of neck and back injuries become a regular thing.
✗ Your career could be in jeopardy - doubling down on your inability to provide for your family.
