The Low­down / Phys­i­cally, you’re in your prime. Now’s the time to take ad­van­tage of that be­fore age-associated ill­nesses or in­juries po­ten­tially sink in down the line. If you’re look­ing at break­ing any records, world or per­sonal, now’s the time. “Both your testos­terone and hu­man growth hor­mones (HGH) are at their all-time high, your anaer­o­bic ca­pac­ity is vir­tu­ally lim­it­less, your re­cov­ery time is shorter than ever and your con­fi­dence is through the roof,” says Bran­don Hin­ton, owner and head trainer at pure­ath­lete­per­for­mance.com. Hin­ton says should pri­ori­tise speed and power while lay­ing the foun­da­tion to long-term per­for­mance. “Your pro­gramme should in­clude plenty of ex­plo­sive move­ments in the weights room, paired with doses of car­dio.” But don’t let youth go to your head. “Stay fo­cused on form, en­sur­ing ev­ery rep is done cor­rectly to avoid a visit to the doc­tor.”
