From “Fundamentals” structured game, to being “all natural” and figuring it out, to “man in your prime”. As the pick up community continues to evolve, so does its coaches and overall philosophy.
The idea of a “Man in your prime” is that we are all prone to development in a period of our lives where everything is in its peak. Similar to a flower blossoming. A man coming together. Your prime could be any time period of your life, although generally it is around 21-29 physically.

Becoming a man requires work and it cannot be done if the guy is lazy. Similar to the idea that a chode will become exponentially more chodey as he gets older, the prime man becomes more experiences and stronger as he gets older. He becomes an icon, a enigma, a symbol.
Being in your prime involves learning many things in depth, quickly, and having parts of your life come together. You feel free, powerful, like everything is going in you favor. Despite the challenges, you are growing and learning and living to your fullest potential.
