Re: Gladiators 'Cobra' in hospital

Thank you OGF,..I am so happy to see that you survived those heart attacks,as for flat lining,that must have been very scarey for your family,..

I jog about a mile maybe two,could never manage what you do,..I do believe it is very important to keep fit and exercise,...but not the punishing training regimes,..just my opinion of course....

Re: Gladiators 'Cobra' in hospital

It seems the level of fitness and strength attained by the Gladiators was ultimately not good for them but I think it is good to do at least some regular exercise that pushes the boundaries.

I'm not certain this prolongs life because we hear about fairly young and fit people who die despite keeping in shape one way or another. However, keeping fit certainly makes you feel better while still here.

I never touched them and was never interested, preferring to be completely natural except for protein shakes and various supplements you can buy legally from stores such as Holland & Barrett.
At the end of the day it's having a good diet and training like a beast which builds (and keeps) the body muscular, which at 54 I still am able to retain. I'm 16.5 stone, well-muscled but not bulky with it and with only a little blubber round the middle these days. It's just my energy levels which suffer because of my night work.
