This month we’re on an over-40 bender. Dave Goodin is our cover guy, and he talks with L.T. about the radical new training he adopted after his shoulder injury—occlusion sets, growth-threshold work and more. Plus, Ron Harris rides into the sunset. The prolific bodybuilding scribe and competitor has hung up his trunks and offers an introspective look at lessons learned. We also have a Q&A with Tom Terwilliger, a big-time bodybuilder from the past who’s now an achievement mentor. You’ll learn a lot—and the dude still has a wicked-ripped physique.
