I realize that most people would not agree with me but in my opinion, this race between 90-year-olds is a bit ageist:
If we couldn’t see their faces and didn’t know their ages, we wouldn’t think this was very athletic. Someday soon, we will not consider age to be very important and the existence of a contest between two genetically-damaged individuals will not be elevated to a noble spectacle but will seem exploitative.
What do I mean by this? Well consider this video of a “love song” by the Folk-rock-comedy duo, The Flight of the Conchords, that makes light of the back-handed compliment that is the qualifier.
If you have to qualify a compliment or a contest by saying, “yes, but they’re 90-years-old” then you are victim to an ageism that will someday seem as inappropirate as calling a racially-denegrated person ‘articulate’.
Watch this video of my friend Martin Katz, our rep and current user of the RECHARGE supplement, and you will not have to qualify 18 pull-ups with his age of 70 years. 18 pull-ups is good better than 99% of anyone, regardless of age.
Oh, and by the way, Martin is training to break the 70-year-olds’ record and in doing so, he routinely runs past high school sprinters at his local track. Maybe it’s time to reevaluate your assumptions about what you can do if you have the right adaptogenic support and mindset.
