This is is very much of a subjective question. When I was younger, I could push myself to my limit and actually enjoy it. Now, as I push myself, I feel sluggish and sort of run down. I expected my overall strength and stamina to be somewhat less as I aged, but I expected to still get that overall good feeling as I pushed myself, even if it was at a slower pace or with less load. I keep telling myself that in just a few workouts I am going to be feeling great and hitting on all 8 turbocharged cylinders again. But I keep on feeling like a 4 cylinder that needs a change of spark plugs. Since most of the general population is sedentary and feels like crap their entire lives, it doesn't matter to me what they think. But most of the people on this forum are pretty high performing machines. Your's are the perspectives I would like to know. Apart from the total load maybe reducing a bit as you age, how do you actually feel now as you workout compared to when you were younger?
