7 Fitness Lessons I’ve Learned Turning 40, I Wish I Knew at 20

There are many milestone birthdays in your life. At 16/17, you can drive a car. At 18, you become responsible for your own choices. At 21, you can ditch your fake ID. And, at 25 (for some reason) you can rent a car. But few birthdays seem full of more mystique, uncertainty, and apprehension than the big 4-0.

However you feel about the age, once you hit this magic milestone it is a great place to reflect on what you’ve learned, and jettison some of the more insidious notions that may have taken root in your 20s and 30s. We cover health topics, nutrition ideas, strength training philosophy and a whole lot more.
