Stroke rates doubled in people aged 40 to 44. Stroke rates increased by about 68 percent in people aged 45 to 54. Strokes declined in all age groups 55 and older between 1995 and 2014, Swerdel. WEDNESDAY, Nov.

23, 2016 (HealthDay News)—There’s a new generation gap in the United States—strokes are increasingly striking young people, and at the same time, stroke rates are dropping in those 55 and older, a new study reports. WEDNESDAY, Nov. 23, 2016 (HealthDay News) There’s a new generation gap in the United States strokes are increasingly striking young people, and at the same time, stroke rates are dropping in those 55 and older, a new study reports. “People born during what I call the ‘Golden Generation,’ 1945 to 1954, had lower rates of stroke than those born 20 years before them and also in.

Stroke rates more than doubled in people 35 to 39 (a nearly 2.5-fold increase). Stroke rates doubled in people aged 40 to 44. Stroke rates increased by about 68 percent in people aged 45 to 54. Strokes declined in all age groups 55 and older between 1995 and 2014, Swerdel said.

The researchers found that between 1987 and 2017, the rate of stroke incidence among Americans aged 65 and older dropped by one-third per decade. The rate of stroke was more than twice for people between 35 and 39; For people aged 40 to 44, the rate of strokes doubled; The rate of strokes rose by 68% for people aged 40 to 44; For people aged 55+, the rate of strokes declined significantly; The Golden Generation. Using age-period-cohort (APC) analysis, the authors found that individuals between the ages of 35 and 49 years of age had a worrisome increase in the rate of stroke, individuals between the ages of 50 to 54 had a small increase in the risk of stroke, and older age groups had a continuing decline in the rate of stroke.

The decline of stroke in the oldest age group, the flattening of stroke in the middle age grou. The analysis of nearly 1,400 men and women 70 and older found that the number of dementia cases dropped from 73 among those born before 1920 to just 3 among those born after 1929. The reasons for. Stroke risk increases with age, but strokes can—and do—occur at any age. In 2009, 34% of people hospitalized for stroke were less than 65 years old. 3 Early Action Is Important for Stroke.

by Amy Norton, Healthday Reporter (HealthDay)—Starting in the late 1980s, stroke rates among older Americans began to fall—and the decline shows no signs of.

Then, suddenly the baby boomers began entering retirement age and the trend bent up and slightly to the left, meaning that the population is now getting old mainly because there are more elderly people but also because the proportion of young is also reducing.

  • Thank you you young whipper snapper…pushing 60yo myself…you’ve given me some hope to hang on to what I’ve got. However, I know that my T level has certainly dropped from a couple years ago.

  • The stuff about cockpits was dead on but you forgot to mention multiple types of daytime lights when shitting on old people
    also hi-vis poor fitting rain jackets when it’s only 60° out
    also rear view mirrors

  • Haha! “Look at our security system that allows us to directly talk to the guard. Watch. All I have to do is push this button to speak to him. (Pressing button and speaking into machine) This is Tom Reilly. Hello? Hello? (No response) This keeps the station much safer.” Too bad the guard was taking a nap or was wearing ear buds.. Progress…what a concept.

  • Great video with very useful information. Fortunately for me, or perhaps unfortunately for my younger self, I spent from 25-47 years of age obese and very much out of shape. I took up cycling 8 years ago and lost 160 pounds and am now in the best shape of my life. I say that’s fortunate because I don’t ever feel the “I’m nowhere near as fit or strong as I was when I was 20” thing. Sometimes that can be depressing, and I’ve heard so many friends say things like this. Of course I wish I would have started cycling when I was young, but it is what it is. At 55, I do have to keep a very close eye on everything I eat, and recovery and rest are super important. Luckily I am a professional napper and have all the time in the world to train. I used to lift quite a bit when I was in my late teens, and really need to get back to the gym on a regular basis. Your video just reiterated that point and as soon as we can go back about our lives in a somewhat normal way, I will start lifting at least 3 days a week. Thanks and I hope everyone stays safe out there.

  • I’m now 60 years old. Thirty years ago when increasing speed (especially running) my HR would respond immediately and increase to cover the greater effort. The maximum HR was higher as well. Good!
    What happens now is that when an increase in effort is made, the HR is delayed in dialling up. The maximum HR is lower also. This adds up to going into oxygen debt at speeds that were quite modest. Steady increases over a few minutes seem ok, but those fast starts and changes of pace seem a thing of the past.

  • I’m 64 and have been cycling for 32 years, accumulating over 461,000 miles. Weigh the same 60 kg when I graduated from college in 1977. Still riding 250-275 miles a week. I noticed a decrease in endurance, stamina and top end starting 2-3 years ago. Before, once I got in shape, I stayed in good form all season. Now I need more rest between hard rides. I’ve finally learned to embrace taking days off and doing easy rides.

  • What about all the job creation corporations make? How many people really are entrepreneurs? Not many are that motivated. Some like just working a 8 hour shift and going home

  • I hope you don’t sound that bad when you reach the age of 35. In all seriousness, you destroy all the scientific quotes you bring in with distasteful mockery.

  • At least in america we are armed. We dont have to worry about the cunta from down unda, daniel andrews wrecking our economy. He will get flushed away with the rest of the fecal matter

  • please check out my very first youtube video i know its not the best but id appreciate some feedback and its under 2 mins so it wont take much out of your day

  • Hmmmm..

  • Dylan, can you please do a video on how to incorporate weight training into your year-round schedule? Thanks for aĺl the great videos you make.

  • Hi Dylan, inspiring informative and science based well done. Checked CTS website but couldn’t see you in the list of coaches. Probably you are busy and the others need a push hahaha. Cheers, Werner

  • This is all because we disobeyed God ✝️ and his holy 10 Commandments especially the one that says thou shall not covet, which means they’ll shall not want, so which leads to all the materialism and the urge to buy all this needless materialistic stuff which interns destroys the earth �� by producing it

  • What’s the difference between those who believe everything that comes through their television and from main stream media and someone who believes everything they see on the Internet? Nothing, its yet another clever way to divide and conquer us. Just look at this comment section, its catty and condescending. Please let’s just all be kind, respectful and lovi g to each other and try to do the next right thing. Its the only way to win.

  • You young-uns don’t have the benefit of training for old age with 25 pound bikes. Now it’s all about watts, lactate thresholds, checking monitors and feeling somewhat detached from our bicycle due to component complexity. At 66 the only change I have made was to go metric. I used to ride 35 miles per session. Now I ride 35 kilometers per session.

  • What a bunch of socialist-communist propaganda! Pure unadulterated crap! Let’s try to tear down the most successful cornerstone of capitalism that allows the most comforts to modern day man…ya let’s go back to the dark ages! (Sarcasm). Is it perfect…no. Are there violations…yes. But for God’s sake look at the alternative! So some nameless person or people made this video and now what??? What is their solution??? What do you want to do? Disassemble every corporation in America…the world? No cars. No furniture. No mass production of food. No cloths. No buildings. No jobs. No welfare….etc. Get real sheeple! We live virtual lives of comfort in large due to mega corporations and I for one am not willing to go back in time and work a plow or sew my own clothes. Sheesh! How stupid do they think we are! I love competitive profit seeking corporations! If you don’t like them….don’t buy their products and take your uneducated self off the couch and go to the fields and make your own food. Hahaha. I’d love to see that!

  • The human ability to ‘discern’ has collapsed. Big Brother speaks through ‘mainstream news narratives’. Mainstream news agencies are the fake news. Bought and paid for ‘scripts’. Follow the money trail. Two old guys talk about who funds this
    Pandemic ‘script’, ‘over-inflated’ covid numbers, and how Soros funds/promotes the Left’s narratives:

  • …from 1.57.40 on it’s the exact truth…what and who has the power and right to go and fight internal disputes???? And the most arguably question, who is in the state to decide it!?

  • We are the world leaders stock money machines. Dad was able to work and mom stay home. I couldn’t do that. They have scraped everything off the top so much they took almost everything.

  • why would they need 2 numbers, both 4 and 6 for the same thing? whether someone in jail is killed by the electric chair or by lethal injection they were still both EXECUTED. It is far more likely that it was for high value captives

  • excellent doco…raises many great points..however there is a degree of selective bias….watching this doco plus other docos will provide us all with a more balanced approach and then we can make our own conclusions. Thanks

  • Thanks Dylan for another great video, but now I have to add “masters athlete” to my list of titles (once I get to the athlete part).

  • Just saw your interview after winning the Michaux Cup 8 yrs ago. You rode Scott then. The Legend, Gerry Pflug came in second overall on a singlespeed. He’s one of those “older” guys who did well in races. I wonder where’s he now?

  • Okay, there is something to be said for a “plant-based diet. My food eats a plant-based diet, and so those animals take most of the wear and tear of digestion for me! I’m 62, and commute 10 miles to work everyday. Though I do eat massive amounts of low carb veggies… but I have never eaten so much meat which reduces both muscle and memory loss as you age. I have been keto for about 3 years, and lost 40lbs, lowered my blood pressure and blood glucose, lost my gout… Dropped all my meds, and I am not alone. I’m never going back. Where do you get this plant-based diet nonsense from? Not from science!

  • Great video please take a look at our YouTube Channel ‘This Cycling Life’ together with former Pro Cyclists Michael Rogers and Allan Davis. We focus on training and peak performance for Masters Cyclists.

  • Good video but it is aimed at a market segment that may consider your stereo type character to be similar to “black face”. Just cut that out. It is worth note that the reduction in times for the older racers is still mild enough to allow wins at local or regional events given that older racers do have more time to train and do a proper active recovery.

  • Love your videos Dylan. Thanks so much. As a 45 year old I have been cycling all by life been training properly for the last two years. Now I got into the Cape Epic…. and sucking up all your videos is helping a lot! Cheers man!

  • Wow. Now I know what that grandpa here in my neighborhood’s secret is with his KOM on that hard segment nearby �� Thanks for this informative video again, Dylan! Wish we had coaches like you here in the Philippines

  • “@ 55 minutes in the towers coming down, after the bombing in 1993 the stability would be mentally gone of course; eventually, having two twin towers come down in one 24 hour period, not only could it be considered a miracle; but, the improbably cost and concern head’s butting head’s on final decisions, of (“what to do now / next, for safety reasons”) not coming to any clear and measurable interested decisions / financially involved; the final outcome now years later… those hero’s that died… really served that situations impossibilities and outcomes with, their unimaginable miracles with those crisis’s being resolved and of course in the end… more lives and healthier living sustained”. *The last thing I wanted to do is comment on that again too, but was mentally and spiritually forced to do so… so, you have it!

  • Michael Moore bringing in the “white male” blame propaganda rather than staying with the thesis of corporate amorality…
    Why did you include this idealogue’s opinion?
    Off point.

  • she was wrong it took 86 amendment rip ups to get the declaration of independence to win who lost out with the 86 black people and the poor and liberty

  • Irrespective of what corporation or politicians do to program over minds only ourselves can free our minds from mental slavery!!!

  • No mention about the real problem GOVERNMENT! People, mostly liberals, keep complaining about corporations without understanding that corporations would NOT exist without gov’t. They couldn’t, as gov’t gives them their power. It’s not part of a free market. It’s corruption. Yet people keep supporting gov’t expecting a different outcome. Silly naive fools. If one doesn’t talk about free markets, then they are on the wrong track. Moral people want free market capitalism! Not corporatism!

  • Can someone give me principles and realities that are compromised whenever a corporations interest are jeopardized, 5 examples in the movie?

  • Ive seen plenty older competitors best younger guy at cycling events, park runs etc. Some old seasoned cyclists are like trains ��✌��

  • I’m an 87 year o,d endurance rider, CTS athlete. Does an altitude tent help with acclimation or other blood factors? Thanks for your science-based videos. Fred Schmid

  • the thumbnail is a coincidence or more likely the people who put it up can see into the future in their crystal ball. but there are still some people who believe that humans are capable of conspiring when science has proven this to be false with overwhelming evidence. if you still have doubts after seeing with your own eyes and hearing it with your ears from fox news and cnn, then you are like an addict who is in denial and refuses to except reality. they need a 12 step program where the first step is admitting that you are powerless over your denial, and that our lives had become unmanageable. step 2 We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. step 3 We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of fox news or cnn as we understood them. first you need to go through detox so you can start your 12 steps with a clear mind because the addiction to facts and truth is so strong that it causes many to do crazy things like think, which is extremley dangerous especially when someone has a good memory and is intelligent they are the most at risk of thinking and put those around them at risk by exposing them to second hand ideas. if you really care about those close to you prove it by quit thinking your TV can prescribe cnn or fox news to help you fight the cravings and help you get through your day thought free.

  • UHHHHH Let’s see… Testosterone, IGF-1 LR3, Anti Estrogen Inhibitor, Altitude tent, Sauna therapy 2x daily
    Ohhhhhh right, no one would EVER do that.
    TRT is an option older men should consider, you will be glad you did and it does make a difference. I did ALOT of research on this and I was AMAZED at how many older men (50’s to 60’s) were so glad they had done it and wish they had done it years earlier.
    I hope in due time, TRT will not be seen as something evil or taboo, but as an advance in medicine that when properly done, should be seen as a viable option.

  • Fast after Fifty updated in a nutshell. Joe was finding success using glycemic load, which you may find parallels the diet you’re describing. I myself have had decent success this season running very close to keto while pulsing carbs during training. I’m the lightest I’ve been in a decade. The last 5 years I have previously ascribed to Matt Fitzgeralds Endurance Carb centered diet, Carbs begat Carbs = weight gain for me, likely due to insulin resistance in my mid century. My Power #’s are acceptable, surely would be better on High CH diet, but I would be heavier, and the flip side with Keto, and why I will continue this season following it, is that I feel fantastic off the bike, mentally and physically, weight, sleep, sex it’s all better. I believe this all needs closer inspection and not discarded as an option with adjustments, particularly related to aged athletes.

  • My tip for aging knees is to consider going back to flat pedals and adopt a mid foot position. Get a large pedal with metal pins and a shoe with a suitable rubber sole.

  • It’s chiefly the aerobic/VO2 that takes a hit. There’s no way around it. No pills or a visit from Oprah holding hands and crying together can ameliorate that. I’m (69) still hysterically dropping many jugend on their plastic fantastic Made in China wunderbikes, but less each year. Live life. Resist the NWO and theirs who brought you SCAMdemic COVID-1984. Life is a once through.

  • What a great tight summary of test results. Really an excellent presentation. Thank you! I will admit I was dubious at the start due to your youthful face:). But you dispelled that rapidly by professionally and knowledgeably interpreting test results/studies that I am far too lazy to search out myself. The levity added by the classic old fart is hilarious. Us old guys know far too many of them. Cell phones, Gen-Y’s, Billie Eilish… send them into temporary cardiac events lol.

  • What is the point of this video??? Mankind know this and still buy nike,pork,cow,chicken and more the one that doesn’t know his creator and the purpose of this life are in a elusion thinking that this life is it and unfortunately 99% of mankind is living in a corporate matrix

  • So after watching this what causes you to be so reverent, submissive, and loyal to the greedy owners of the corporation you work for for slave wages…

  • that is quite remarkable: only 10% decline in an endurance metric from 35yo to 60yo.
    it certainly detracts from the excuse of ‘oh but i am, after all, xx years old!::

    the graph about marathon running times is quite an eye-opener! 30yo can run a marathon in 120minutes (approx), but even 70+ yo can do it in 200 mins! that is remarkable!

  • I just came across this video. I’m 63, exercise a lot doing Blood Flow Restriction resistance training (drawing from Kaatsu), HIT with plyometrics and now adding mountain biking which I began a couple months ago. I feel like I ride as fast as 15 years ago. I don’t race. I am maintaining muscle mass and going towards carnivore rather than vegetarian. Opposite what you say and opposite what I used to do. Much more endurance, strength, lean muscle mass, mental clarity, reduced inflammation… I draw from the work of Stephen Phinney MD, and Virta health and Paul Saladino MD amongst many others.

  • Thank you very much.i am 41years old but my 30s and 40s has not been much different in energy wise. I feel the same like inside in my early 30s.

  • Hold up…so endurance trained athletes have WORSE hearts than sedentary people?? How can we even justify doing this sport then if that’s the case??

  • How about BAD APPLES in government! They lie right in face on TV… TV an Movie Industytrying to indoctrinate us… they knew an denied the sex addict… so they could get big movies… laughed haha up their sleeves… women sold their souls for a movie part!

  • The problem is if the big businesses didn’t care so much about profit they would be swallowed up and someone even worse or the same takes there spot it’s like putting drug dealers in jail! U need to just put faith in humans that they will have a good nature at the end of the day and if they don’t god one day will judge them!

  • “There is no Western concern for issues of aggression, atrocities, human rights abuses and so on if there is a profit to be made from them.“ Noam Chomsky

  • I’m 69 and have just bought an ‘adventure bike’ (Voodoo Limba). People often talk and think themselves into old age. Personally, I do hardly any exercise, but over the past nine months I have given up alcohol and lost 42 pounds. Now at almost my perfect weight. Don’t smoke, don’t drink, and keep to a healthy weight. You will be good to go.

  • & & & & & & &

  • Cold TRUTH so now a few have been allowed to corner markets and own almost everything but right now pushing to do it with their one world government and with their Depopulation going on they can move into their plans to have robots doing it all, so they don’t need to pay or even worry about the people

  • Hi Dylan, inspiring informative and science based well done. Checked CTS website but couldn’t see you in the list of coaches. Probably you are busy and the others need a push hahaha. Cheers, Werner

  • The next great thing to make unethical money is painting stuf green that is not green/sustainable.
    Like solar panels, windfarms, electricars, ect.

  • Why does every VO2Max chart have different classifications for age and gender? On one website I’m excellent and on another it says average. Who has the most accurate V02Max chart?

  • Hey Dylan what are your thoughts on fixed gear training? I set my road bike at “one gear ratio” and stay there until the 20 mile out and back course I ride becomes as easy as the previous gear ratio. I’ve worked my way up to a 38 ratio which is a 53X14 on my bicycle. The course I ride is almost entirely flat (it’s South Florida) with one 6% grade bridge for.25 miles each way there’s usually a 10mph wind with a helter skelter direction. I’m almost 54 and have been riding for 30 years on and off. Usually my training was the bull in the china shop variety with my efforts dictated only by how well I was feeling. Such poor focus made it difficult for me to maintain speeds of 25mph without feeling like I was going to crack in short order. Now, training in a fixed gear (I never shift no matter the wind or other variables) has allowed me to maintain a higher pace than ever before and when I begin to feel the pain in my quads ratcheting up, I’m able to adjust my saddle position and activate my hamstrings with a great deal of predictability which elevates my confidence which stabilizes my cardiovascular effort thus maintaining speed. I’d like to know what forces you think are at play? I think, when I switch gears to a higher ratio, my body is still trying to pedal at the RPMs it was use to pedaling at the previous ratio this means that if I get back to the same RPMs my speed will be that much higher (simple, right!) LOL. I’m planning a move to my 53X13 in a few weeks I’ve been in my 53X14 for almost a month now (the longest I’ve stayed in any one gear). I went on a club ride the other night and dominated all the course’s attack points (something I never do). I haven’t made any changes to my diet and I weigh the same as I have for 30 years (6’1, 165lbs) (with a caveat in the past 6 weeks the higher gear ratio has packed on 5lbs of muscle).

  • I’m 59. My objectives for cycling are: getting out into nature, keeping as fit as I can (for too many reasons to list), exploring, staying out of trouble, stress relief, meeting new people, seeing what I am capable of doing. In “decline” slowly, yes. C’est la vie.

  • Thanks for the great summary of current state of research on the subject. My bad is that I took a break from cycling for roughly 17 years and now I don’t know why I ever did that, but regret it very much…
    Anyhow, I do not recall giving permission to use my voice around 13:21 ��

  • They will very soon impose a tax on the amount of air we breathe and the amount of sunlight that hits our skin!!! We are human slaves!!!

  • I’m 81. Started biking at age 65. Still enjoy biking 1500 miles per year. Would be more but living in South Dakota limits the biking season.

  • The heart is the biggest factor after about age 36-40 in most male the heart elasticity start to slow down this means recovery ratios start to erode. This is why Master like flatter races and big groups where its easier to sit in and draft. If you can recover after a hard effort in a couple of gulps of air you can repeat. an older athlete needs more time to recover from a redline effort this cant be fixed. That’s life, anyone that says you can improve recovery in former elite athletes is snake oil talk! I’m not talking about non-elite cyclist. Anyone can improve their fitness depending on what baseline is used…

  • When will we recognise that we must reform if this means war then so be it what’s the cost of sacrifice amounted to freedom for the people

  • I am 56 now and after almost 40 years of cycling the bad news is all true. I ride with my 20 year old son and of course he can kind of dust me in a sprint but not to the extent that I am embarrassed. Well, maybe a little bit embarrassed. At 100 km the difference is much less but I attribute this to me understanding my long term cadence better than he and many younger guns do that I ride with. Kids, never underestimate old man endurance and mental toughness!

    Weight training is absolutely essential for the reasons stated and others like preventing bone density loss.

    The bottom line IMHO is that fitness is like a bank account: If you are making deposits your entire life, you will have more to draw on in the later years. You know why we don’t see many fat old men????

    The cardio pulmonary benefits are undeniable. The “feeling of fitness” is worth any pain and who wants a belly as you age anyways. Visceral fat deposits are a bitch but remember that great abs are built in the kitchen more so than in the gym or on the bike! We are what we eat.
    Nutrition and SLEEP are even more important in recovery as we age. Amazing how quickly I can fall asleep on the couch after a 35 mile ride in Texas heat today…

    There is One Huge Benefit today: and that is that I just enjoy biking more than when I was younger. I enjoy biking with my wife, my sons and friends more than I did competing with friends. Yeah we still compete but it is more about fun and smack talk at dinner now.
    It was all race, race, race back then. I raced and rode in some beautiful places around the country and never really saw any of them because my head was down most of the time LOL.
    Today it is a joy and I can still hold 19 to 21 mph for 30 miles, just not everyday:-)

    Keep spinning and thanks for a great series. I truly appreciate the videos. Scott

  • Great video. At age 59 I noticed a drop at age 50, but with training and greater periods of recovery can still perform endurance. Low Calorie density is the key to fitness!

  • How much does age affect your performance? Answer: A lot. What can you do about it? Nothing. Just try and do as well as you can at any age. We are all heading in the same direction. Peace, from a 56 year old.

  • DECLINE >> shoot all the TRT You want and eat Chris Froomes diet and You still will not stop the decline only slow it down >>> Your Telomeres are shortening >>> its called oxidation >> You are literally rusting away lol….cheer up we are all going to die and it may be soon from the fat slob in the pickup truck texting when he hits You or I.

  • Bankers (Money) >> Government (Power) >> Corporation (Work) >> You
    those at the top get all the money, those at the bottom get all the blame.

  • Great content. Like others who’ve commented I’ve gotten faster with age… because of more mental discipline to keep to a plan… a training program, resting, nutrition, and not drinking every night! They call it a beer belly for a reason. I’d add the increased sensitivity to weight gain from refined starch and sugars as we age.

  • Simply put when we see someone overweight we pity them, tell them they are lazy and that they should lose weight.

    When we see someone affected by profits bulimy we envy them, call them brilliant and hard-working and think they deserve more and more money up to the point of being able to buy two planets and a starfleet.

    In any case nihil novi sub sole. Sociopaths and psycopaths have always ruled mankind and one day they will be replaced by the same machines they build to achieve even more power and wealth.

    This is not a zero sum game, but a subzero game.

  • It’s sooo funny to see the worst place the communist can show in a Capitalist world is “celebration Flordia”, tough choice between that or soviet Russia.

  • My responsibility is be aware of purchase propaganda, be informed of corporate practices, and individually make ethic decisions about consumption.
    I am a free agent.

    I am very suspicious of documentaries that start with premise that victim and victimizer are to be identified.

  • Right, 53. Trying to maintain over 4wkg and a 60kg weight. I need a weights bench….. off I go and thanks for the advice. Luckily I love vegetables……. unfortunately also beer.


  • I really enjoy your videos Dylan, I appreciate that your presentations are science based. Soon to be 62, this one hit home for me. Fortunately I’ve already adopted a diet with increased veggies and fruit and have been rewarded with a 7 kg weight loss in about as many weeks. You’ve really encouraged me to hit the gym, which I’m not a fan of, in a couple of months when my list of events is over. Thanks for the good info and keep up the good work.

  • I am 70 started cycling a year ago average 75km a week that is before cov19. I feel continuous improvements in my overall health and performance, even non competitive Cycling is a passion it needs a lot of dedication not many can fit in so age is not a significant factor. My personal opinion. Thanks

  • No mention of quality protein intake to stave off sarcopenia? Good luck getting enough quality, bioavailable protein from vegetables and fruits.

  • This makes it even more amazing that Ned Overend won the Mt Hamilton Hill Challenge at 56 years old!
    He was competing against the top cyclists in the world, regardless of age.

  • Pablo Escobar dies and then u get el chapo el chapo goes to jail and then u get el mencho it’s the people who support it!! If u don’t like what Nike does then stop buying there shoes it’s really that simple!

  • Dylan, I just wanted to say thank you for your videos. I love that what you say is based on research. I am an older master cyclist at 60 and your instruction has greatly changed my training as I always just biked to max levels and now I am working on zone 2 rides and 2 days intervals along with weight training and I have worked to get my FTP. So thank you!

  • The irony is that every comment made here is possible due to a device produced by a corporation on a platform that is also a corporation.

  • This is quickly becoming my favorite channel! At age 46, which I know is not that old compared to some on here…old farts haha! But serious, I continue to get faster every year. Common sense dictates. Eat well, don’t overdo it, don’t over drink, hit the gym for the full body circuit twice a week, do yoga for mobility, stay hydrated—-and get out on the bike. Rest when you need to rest. I have learned that your body will let you know what needs to happen next if you are paying attention. I’ll never forget the day I went for a MTB ride and got my ass kicked by a 72-year-old named Charlie… I asked him his secret, and he just said this: I keep riding.The man was a beast and completely redefined how I saw aging on the bike and gave me a goal to aim for. Here’s to becoming more like Charlie!

  • Body fat which a lot of people put on as they age is a big factor in decreasing VO2 max. So take your % BF down to 10-11% and you will be amazed at how much easier running, cycling or any other sport becomes. Remember that excess body fat interferes with oxygen transport to the tissues.

  • At 4:58 the “decrease in lean body mass and decrease in testosterone levels are partially to blame.” This is why I’ve met many men in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s on test replacement therapy and they said it helps so much and gives them improved recovery and maintained muscle mass. This translates to them being better cyclists. They tell me they can see the improvement on the bike.

  • it was posted in 2017, but it said new corporation coming in 2020 of august. WTF is going on here?! This cant just be a coincidence

  • last year i went into cycling,from 100kg lost 20kg, lower blood pressure from 145/93 to 115/75, heart rate from 92 to 69 on average, so me going to be better,however my life style 20years smoking cig,10years smoking weed, 5 years taking amfetamine, fastfoods and alkohol on daily basicis. i know it tooks me a 10 years of my life and will live shorter then others, now Searching for better quallity of life.
    ps. nice vid.

  • Old BH Dylan was super funny for me as a 22 year old, but I wonder about the opinion of older people. Do they find it funny?:D But as I see the fact that I was 21 when I started training harder for becoming a racer a couple of years later isn’t a problem since here we are talking about people from their 40’s and 50’s.

  • Remember when Michael Moore showed up at the 99% rally to show his support? hahahaha. And the stupid clowns didn’t piece together that the man is a multimillionaire and didn’t belong there in the first place but they listened to him anyways.

  • Since alot of races now are mixed by gender and age, It would be interesting to see a full range of ages say 15 years old to 70. I am turning 50 this year and i find it amusing when I hear parents say sarcastically good for me that i beat a 15 year old. Even though the 15 year olds are entering in adult events but based on their results are racing in our categories. Are 15 year olds equivalent in fitness to 50 year olds? how does the age base fitness chart rise and when does it start to fall?

  • If you think the privatization is bad, just wait till the government gets control like Chomsky is talking about. Governments around the world are responsible for millions of deaths and have far less of a conscious or guilt than corporations. Some things are so dumb only “intellectuals” believe them.

  • As an older rider who took up exercise (I started with mountain biking because how hard could that be?), I appreciate this video and the science behind it. I always learn something new from your videos.
