    When your 90 and decline quickly when you are sick you will have more reserves.

    I don't think I was clear. didn't mean medical intervention, I mean active maintenance of my health and intervention in the natural, lazy desire to just let things go. It means eating well and exercising as long as physically possible.

    I think there's a good argument to be made that had I not spent a couple of years building up strength reserves (and a couple of months building up fat reserves) prior to my cancer treatment I may not have survived it. Once that first feeding tube failed things pretty much started falling apart in general due to lack of nutrition.

    That's what I mean. People who have tried to live healthy and have good physiological reserves do a lot better in acute care situation.

    50% of the reason why I am trying to put on muscle is so that I'll have it to lose if and when that time comes.

    The shear psychological aspect of it. Example if I am squatting 315lbs for reps of 8 to 10 as a mass/hypertrophy routine and it has been working for me, how will I mentally prepare myself if start to drop and then find myself only able to do 180lbs for reps.

    Will the psychological behavior then affect the physical aspect of it? Because in hindsight if 180lbs is all I can muster (due to my physical limitation) for 8-10 reps then I would be putting in the same effort as I was when my physical limitation allowed me to do 315lbs for 8 - 10. But and this is the net net of it, will the drop in weight fck with my head enough to affect my build...
