Fitness can wane

The body cannot always keep up with the misleading wishes of the mind

This is true for as the body ages it tightens around the challenges sent its way by the world.

Muscles shorten when the hand must be held up or made into a fist.

After decades of remembering all the shortening, the body will give way when stretched. It is simple physics.

So the old man should think he is young and keep that thought in his head, well away from his arms and legs.
