Now in my fifties, the training mistakes I made as a young fighter are finally catching up with me…

If some training is good, and more means quicker results, then even more training is even better, right?

That’s how it felt at the time. However, time and scientific evidence have proved me wrong!

The fact is, I’m part of an emerging demographic of caucasian males in their early fifties who, after years heavily involved in sports, now need hip replacements.

Don’t let either your enthusiasm or FOMO drive you to make the same mistake. Now over 30 years on, we (should) know better. ;)
