I did weight lifting for years in my 20’s… I could squat 500+ lbs, bench 325 lbs several times, do 25 consecutive pullups with a wide grip or narrow grip, etc. I looked like a bodybuilder.
Then I did Crossfit for several years in my late twenties… more cardio, a bit less weights.
Then rock climbing for several years in my early thirties.
Now I ride my bike competitively on Zwift and have tons of fun doing it.
All exercise is good. If I could go back in time, I would greatly reduce the amount of weight lifting I did and focus more on fun cardio centric activities. You get all the muscle you need from those.
