There is a video and slides at the link.

http://quantifiedself.com/2014/06/max-gotzler-testosterone-diet-experiment/

What did I do?
I explored how diet changes influenced my level of free testosterone. In addition, I observed how changes in testosterone related to my mood, sleep and energy level.

How did I do it?
Over the course of one year, I regularly checked my level of free (active) testosterone in saliva and correlated the results to other data I had collected using apps and tracking devices.

What did I learn?
I learned that eliminating carbs from my diet resulted in lower testosterone and adding carbs together with fat and protein increased testosterone. I also learned that sleep was closely tied to my level of testosterone. After good nights of sleep (usually more than 8 hours), my level was elevated the next morning.

Pretty freakin' impressive.

The link should take you to a video of a 73 year "old" man working out.

Not Martial Arts, but...   I am heading out to compete in the USTA (tennis) over-55, national championships this week.  It is a team competition, all doubles, and all teams that have won their section from around the country.  At 58, I am working the delicate art of playing and training without over-training.  Part of our preparation was to play a competitive college team this fall. The old guys held their own pretty well.   )

Congratulations, and best wishes for good luck!.  Remember always that the world needs Older Warriors to serve as role models for the younger generation.

When I was in my twenties, I had the good fortune of training (TKD) alongside people who were twenty years older than me.  I admired their spirit, and vowed to emulate them someday. 

Now, at three years younger than yourself, I continue to fight at Euro Gatherings.  So my hat off to you sir...KEEP IT UP !!!

Thanks Spartan for the encouraging words!  We had a great tournament.  Did not leave with the title we wanted but won a first set off the team that gets to call themselves national champions.  I was hit by a car at 17.  Decades later, I get to compete with guys who played Division I college or pro tour back when I was working my way out of handicapped parking.  Now in 55 and over, everyone has physical limitations, though our opponents never seem to show it.  I couldn't be more lucky and grateful to still be at it.  We are fortunate to love a sport that can last a lifetime.
