Very interesting article written in a talky non-scientific style. It digs up "oldies" in a style that seems to me to be a little unrealistic. However a redress of the balance that youth is always best makes a nice change, and this article certainly provides that change. I did find the emphasis on pain a little distasteful, however we all know that a stepping out of comfort zones is necessary for adaptations to occur.

Unfortunately the article seemed riddled with a few spelling and grammar mistakes. The ones I saw were:

mediate = meditate

heavier then = heavier than

weight lose = weight loss

it was simply the best things = it was simply the best thing

apposed = opposed
