Checkerboard 13: Thank-you, thank-you, Oh thank-you so very much! Your OP makes me feel so much better about my present physical state as I age out! LOL. Whether we are professional athletes or just weekend warriors, we should never, ever let the personal diet and exercise regimen(s) slip.
When I was in my teens I worked out for size. In my twenties I worked out for strength. In my thirties I worked out for fitness.
Now I work out so I don't get boobs.
Please forgive me, but I have no idea of what you are trying to say by this.He was a quarterback, so don't get ahead of yourself.
I'm 30 and very slim, so are you telling me that because I might get fat one day I should start wearing high rise pants with pleats right now?
bear in mind that this particular gentleman was once more fit than you could ever be... even in your wildest dreams.)
I don't think that is true. While not ever a professional athlete, prior to my retirement as an LEO, I was in the gym every day because somewhere, someday I would meet a somebody whose mission was to kill me. It was up to me to make sure I stayed in such shape as to be able to repel any such attack until such time as I overcame him or the cavalry arrived to help me.
To say what you did does a disservice to every LEO, firefighter, professional soldier or anyone else on this forum that takes their fitness seriously .
It's notwithstanding. There are thousands of soldiers, firefighters and LEOs. Some of them are in good shape, some of them are not.
There are very few people who can play starting QB in the NFL. All of them are in the best physical shape that the human body can possibly attain. They are at the absolute sharpest point of physical ability, and they are being driven harder in order to stay there than anyone else. The only more competitive pool in the world is Formula 1 drivers, maybe.
How many times do we go over this? Do people openly make fun of you guys wearing pleats?
I however agree, when a fit guy like the example above wears double pleats it looks weird.
