What can 60 do?

THE PRO TENNIS & AGING EXPERIMENT

Charlie Maher - Age 60

What can 60 do?

HOME: Welcome

For experiment's sake - Let's assume :


Age is just a number
and
It's not your age, it's your training
 

I think we can do much more at 60, but I'm finding it takes getting the recipe just right.

Once you are past 50 nobody really knows what's possible, where the absolute limit is, it keeps changing.

So let's explore!!


This is exciting new territory!

***************************************************

Can new skills that weren't there at age 28 be acquired at age 60?

How far can intense, consistent, high-level modern training turn back a 60 year old's clock?

How much will life experience count?


***************************************************

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.
- Henry Ford

 

So the pro tennis progressions are:

Me now *** - January 2023 - around a Division 2 college level

Average Division 1 college level

Top Division 1 college level

ITF Circuit
 (minor league of pro tennis)

ATP Challenger Circuit (higher minor league)

ATP World Tour (Major League - the ones you see on TV)

Top 100 ATP Ranking (elite major leaguers!)

The 4 Grand Slams (the biggest and richest tournaments - Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open)

That's Pro Tennis       !

Yes - It all sounds great .... and impossible - but ........... some say differently:

Only those who Attempt the Absurd will Achieve the Impossible.
- Albert Einstein

If you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
- Henry Ford

 

The most interesting quote is: 

If you believe you can do a thing,
then you acquire the ability to do it


 ............ This is the one my experiment is really testing!!

Other quotes:

If you can dream it, you can do it.
- Walt Disney

It's only in risking going to far that we find out how far we can go.
- TS Eliot

We don't stop playing because we grow old, 

we grow old because we stop playing.
 - George Bernard Shaw

Ok - It's Game On - Experiment On!

It's time to really push the boundaries, and find out what 60 can do
- who knows - 
maybe it IS the new 40. 
Pro tennis is a great way to test this for sure!!


I Will Be Sharing Everything
 

The foods that work
The workouts that work
The recoveries t
hat work
The techniques that work
The mental skills that work
And .......
Some of the things that didn't quite work!

We're all so different that many of the things that worked for me may not work  for you, and vice versa??!
