More nutrients will not necessarily be better at that point. What I think matters more is if you have a sedentary lifestyle, even if you lift. There's research out there indicating that you can't compensate the negative affects of a sedentary lifestyle by exercising
The reason people chose organic isn't because it has more nutrients, I think that would be total bullshit, it's for the supposed absence (or at least less prevalent presence) of pesticides and chemical ripeners and things like that.
I'm not necessarily saying I agree with that either, but I don't think anybody srsly thinks an organic blueberry has more vit C than a non-organic one.
