I think this links well to what Danm has described, and it's something I've been finding, more by way of not pushing down than anything else though. Your comment encourages me to pursue it. Also my video shows that I am if anything spearing way too high so there's a long way to go even get to my idol's spearing depth!

We won't be 10 again true, but I think that "raging against the dying of the light" is not a bad thing, in moderation. The envelope is definitely contracting but don't we each need to figure how much by carefully testing and pushing at it?

Anyway, there is the third approach: of working to maintain strength and even improve it as far as possible. But I'd agree that flexibility alone is dangerous, especially as we age.
