The question may sound ridiculous. But its a fact that one determined senior passed the physical and made the team. No, hes not going to get too many serious minutes in games but he does play.
It is inspiring. Nonetheless, take it easy seniors. His amazing success is not a reason to take on too much too soon. On the other hand, most of us are physically capable of a lot more than we think. Heres how to turn back the clock . . .
If youre a beginner, first schedule a physical with your doctor. Tell the doc you want to start a program to get in shape. If you get an okay (and 99 times out of 100 you will), get some experienced assistance. Read a book and/or get a trainer.
Start out slowly but incrementally challenge yourself. And never quit! You may not play college hoops in your 70s, but you will surprise yourself at what you are capable of and how good you can look and feel.
And if you should happen to make the team, please let me know . . .
