Joe Weaver competed in our Adonis Index senior open division and came in 2nd place. I caught with him on the eve of his 60th birthday to chat about what it’s like to get into the best shape of his life.
Joe explains how things have changed over the years and how the whole process started.
He shares some valuable information about the difference between training when you’re in your 20’s and 30’s compared to your 50’s. As a senior Adonis you’ve got to pay more attention to your rest and recover and listen to what your body is telling you.
When we’re young we tend to have an immortality complex and we tend to abuse our bodies, but a we move along in life we can’t do this anymore.
The lifelong process of working out, getting in shape and staying in shape isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon, and pacing yourself is the key to getting the most out of your body without breaking down.
Joe shares many words of wisdom for longevity and being in great shape at any age. And make no mistake about it Joe is in great shape, and a shape many 20 and 30 year olds would envy.
P.S. The breathing technique Joe refers to is called “Ujjayi”
The book Joe refers to in the podcast is called “Body Mind & Sport” by John Douillard
