“I’m getting old.”
“I can’t do the things I used to.”
“I’m over the hill.”
“I can’t train heavy anymore.”
“I can’t keep up with the twenty somethings anymore.”
“I’m starting to feel my age.”
“I’m too old for that.”
If you’re under the age of 40 and have been heard saying things like that you should be ashamed and embarrassed.
Ray Lewis just finished another season as one of the absolute best defensive players in the NFL and doesn’t seem to have lost a step. He’s 36. So is Donald Driver who is still an outstanding wide receiver and training as hard as he ever has.
While Brett Favre fell apart this year he was still one of the best quarterbacks in the league during the 2009 season at 40 years old.
Warren Moon was a Pro Bowl quarterback at 41.
As impressive as what Donald Driver is doing (playing a speed position in the NFL at a high level at 36 years old) Jerry Rice has one up on him. The greatest wide receiver of all time played until he was 44 years old and had 1200 yards the year he turned 40.
Still think you’re too old to run hill sprints?
