    I have been told many times to listen to my body. But I end up working out when injured or super tired because I need my daily dose of exercise and I know this isn't healthy.

    I just turned 40 and when I get to the gym it is all business, ballz out.

    The few differences would be, if I feel a pull or tweak, I will shut it down and go home and rest. Also, cardio in the off season.

    I still compete so things may be a bit different on my end...

    Any monkey can lift weights, it's the eating part that's hard.

    As I get older I train smarter. I know what works for my body and how my body feels after certain movements and programming. Im 38 so still relatively young and Ive been blessed with not many injuries so I can still train without too many restrictions. Lets see if that holds up into my 40's!

    Good point! When I was younger a pulled muscle or "tweak" meant "get some blood in 'er and keep working". Now, I know to humbly back away for a bit.

    Same here, aside from turning 39, a slight neck or back impingement I call it a day, maybe even several days, until the issue completely subsides.
    Same goes for going balls deep, no fuck around session here - straight work.

    PS. this is my "offseason" (bulking - I dont compete), and I have been doing zero cardio. Cardio will help keep fat gain somewhat at bay with everything else considered on point (ie. nutrition, rest, training, etc)?

    31 almost 32 I donít go so crazy on my leg joints as I use to and my rotator cuffs. Back in my 20s I didnít care much and would just rack and lift but I realize joints get worn and Deca is good lube but it still isnít the same as a well oiled machine

    Obviously no one asked me, but my two cents (anyways) are to never rely on cardio to lose fat - in terms of weight management, it's just a tool that can help when diet alone stops being effective

    Prep/cutting - diet diet diet, add some cardio and fat burners when necessary (forget using your workouts to burn fat unless you're into plyos or crossfit)
    Offseason - train rest diet, if you're getting too bloofy stop eating so much (add cardio for CV health but don't rely on it to stop you from getting fat)
