Re: Newbie thoughts - think back your early years - what comes to your mind?
Thank you very much for your input!
I have to emphasize here that I am not going to combine weight training and aikido. My path of bodybuilding is walked through now (or at least that is how I feel now).
I am replacing bodybuilding and weight training with aikido, thus, DOMS will not be a problem. I know my muscle mass will cease too pretty soon, thus, some of it will allways remain. I dont think muscle mass after 18 years of training will completely vanish.
For me, this is a total change of training, pastime, mindset and allso life style. And I am thrilled to be carried away with something new.
Thanks again for your advice. Plenty of good advice here!
