RE: JumpRope versus PELOTON$
they say ignorance is bliss.

only someone who doesn't care about their grey matter would choice to have it pummeled for a living.

the smartest athletic man in history probably since Alexander the Great, stuck to low impact exercise.

Jumping rope is not good for me any more. I used to do that when I was boxing but now I need low impact. Snow skiing accident followed by months of basketball on asphalt left me damaged. So now I take long walks and ride my bike. Then I do some pushups, situps and bent over rows on one side at a time with a 35lb dumbell. I'm older now and this sustains my fitness well enough.

RE: JumpRope versus PELOTON$
^walking is a reasonable evolution for aging. I don't really buy into the 50s is new 30s and all that. 30s is 30s and 50s is 50s and so on. Unfortunately we must bear the experience of aging while we try to make the most of it as we evolve our methods to live our best life given the conditions which will be unique for each person's experience.

I do believe there is some truth to the "use-it-or-lose-it" it where we avoid some discomfort which allows for more of that aging stiffness to settle-in which perhaps accelerates the aging process.

perhaps some of the reason is that we have problems with moderation. Food, drink, marijuana, exercise.....people tend to be excessive. So we think jumping rope for 3 60 second sessions a few times a week to try to maintain mobility is useless if we can't do those 5 sets of 5 minute rounds. As we age it seems less is more and there is a cruel irony I heard by Clint Eastwood talking about this cruel fate where he stated something about how "the older we get the more effort we have to make when it should be the other way around"(because the older we get it's harder to make that effort so would be more logical if younger people had to work harder)

and probably the worst thing we can do is compare ourselves to the genetic exceptionals.......those rare minority % of people which are like X-Men and are the equivalent of a physical genius....not something one can really cultivate with 10,000 hours practice

from Men's Health
Forget the Gym: Walking Is the Superior Form of Exercise

Abandon your punishing fitness plan! For true physical and existential salvation, nothing beats a good walk, argues author Will Self


Quote:Of course, walking without a map is an even more liberating experience. I am not a rambler, or any other species of Gore-Tex-sporting hiker. Don’t get me wrong – I have nothing against them, but their preoccupation with walking in particular places and at particular times is an anathema to me. My walking isn’t simply a leisure pursuit; rather, it’s transportation, entertainment, fitness regime and psychotherapy rolled into one. Apart from the aforementioned sensible shoes, I do take waterproofs with me. The über-annoying and self-satisfied hikers say things like: “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” And in respect of these temperate and rain-washed isles, they’re most definitely right. However, though adequately equipped to this extent, I often set out with no clear idea of where I’m going to go. This is the dérive – or aimless drift – beloved of psychogeographers, among whose number I’m happy to include myself.

Taking our cue from the Situationists, a group of art revolutionaries who wandered the storied streets of 1950s and 1960s Paris, we see walking as a way of not only traversing space but time as well. Let me explain: once attuned to topography and well versed in the built environment, the walker becomes alert to a different sort of temporality: not the collective hallucination of incremental time displayed on the watches and computer displays that we all look at too much, but the subjective apprehension of our own duration in this world – our fundamental pace, if you like. The French Enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau (himself no mean stomper) maintained: “We think at walking pace.” And what’s revealed to me when I’m walking and thinking at the same pace is the pace of everything around me – just as when we pass by two tall trees or buildings, their position relative to one another (the parallax view) makes us aware of the angle of our own traverse, so there’s a temporal parallax that enables us to become aware of time not simply as an inexorable river flowing in one direction, but a huge and fluid body of fluxes and refluxes, in which we swim even as we walk.

RE: JumpRope versus PELOTON$
walking is the best exercise

excessive exercise is bad and ages you quickly

that is why athletes look so old and are not known to live long
