Perhaps I should invest in an Accujack?

Yes, this. And the epsom salts, though I'm bath basin challenged so more like 300mg of MG citrate in divided doses daily.

Thanks to our DINK Life, we can anything we want, have summers off (190 day work year), and nobody minds our visits because NO CHILDREN. 40s are great so far, but they are ending this year...

Now is the time to work out MORE not LESS!

Many guys stop working out after their 30's, figuring they don't need to keep their muscles up, but you actually have more reason to work out if you want to get to your 80's an beyond.

If you go onto online dating, don't put down an age 40 or higher, you won't hear from any women, even ones over 40.

Also, remember that you're used up about half your allotted years (statistically), make the rest count and don't waste them, the perceived duration of each year is inversely proportional to the number of years you've lived.

Stretch. Touch your toes every day and you will still be able to when you hit my age. Wish I would have read this thread 30 years ago. Just over a year and I hit the big 70. But that will be another thread.

You and I are not talking about the same thing.



My 20's were great, my 30's were an absolute train wreck, my 40's are turning out to be pretty good so far and hey, unlike a lot of these cats apparently did, I still have all my hair.

For many, hair doesn't go away, it just migrates to another part of their body!

I reckon stress has something to do with it too. I see some of the guys that I was buddies with in my teens and 20's on Facebook and they look WRECKED. Me and two other guys, look almost the same. Couple of lines on the face a little deeper. Maybe a couple of pounds heavier, but you look at a photo of da boyz from 20 years ago, and we are easy to pick out.

The dudes that look a mess, they are all guys that got married and had kids young...

It probably had as much to do with the activities they didn't do because they had kids (and possibly going through divorces and taken through the ringer by lawyers) rather than the stress of raising kids.

I didn't have my first kid until 32 and I was active in sports until my late 30's and never stopped working out. Most people guess my age 15 years less than actual.

I honestly reckon it is genes more than anything else. Having kids is sort of the excuse the older looking guys like to use and I'm happy to let them have it. Those of us that still look reasonably together all have wildly varied self care regiments.
