    Good point on the recovery. I feel like the quick recovery we had when we were younger allowed us to learn from our mistakes without paying such a high price.

    To build on your example, Throwing a bowling ball over your head at 20 = 5 day injury, throwing a bowling ball over your head at 40 = 5 months.

    Probably a good idea to just stay away from bowling balls altogether...

    This definitely. A few years ago my wife tore some cartilage in her knee buzzing around the house, missed a step, surgery time. This from the woman who teases me about moving around slowly like and old man. Well, if you want to tear sh*t up in the gym, you have to be more careful out of the gym as you get older.
