The Old Bull vs the Young Bull
by Bill Hinbern

Some would like to equate intelligence with wisdom based on experience.

Theres an age old story that demonstrates the difference and the value of experience.

The story goes something like this...

High on top of a mountain there stood an old bull and a young bull.

Both of them were leering at the young heifers down in the valley quite a distance away.

The young bull was snorting, huffing and puffing, pacing back and forth, etc.

Finally, after a while, the young bull said...

"Say, why don't we run down this mountain and have our way with one of them?"

The old bull pondered for a moment, smiled, leaned over, and calmly said...

"Why don't we walk down the mountain and have our way with all of them!"

The moral of this story, if there is one, is this...

While the young bull may be intelligent, he lacks the wisdom of experience.

On the other hand, the old bull has the benefit of wisdom based on experience but lacks the stamina or endurance of youth.

The same may be applied to your training.

Your physical ability changes as you age.

The training program that you use at 18, is different than the one you use at 35, 50, or even 60 years of age, etc.

Don't expect to have the same metabolism of a blast furnace at 40 that you had at 18, either.

In addition, your diet had better change, especially when you hit that magical number...


It is important to realize this early on or you will open yourself up for problems such as overtraining, muscle and joint injuries, excess body fat, etc.

Does this mean you should stop training altogether?

Absolutely not!

It simply means that you must customize your training to fit your ability based on your age.

Yours for Greater Strength,
