    Looking good by the way :-)

    Ok, since you had to do it and I haven't put any pics up in forever 42 and getting bigger, stronger and leaner... definitely not faster.

    looking good-is there any supplement or supplements you have taken which have made the biggest impact on how you look?

    Like I said it's stringing them together and stacking them with proper diet and you will get results..

    That being said, there are some herbal stacks I prefer...

    1) The Swole stack is very responsive to almost everyone, hek if you don't run it as a main stack it's a dynamite PCT addition or so I would imagine. It's a combination of Testopro, Stoked and Glycobol.. throw in HGHPro and you have an amazing natural stack.

    2) Asteroid stack is good as well and Prime is a mainstay in my regime, not everybody responds to it but for those who do it's a dynamite product... Hey the new Pink Magic product is very strong, throw it in with this stack and wow! damn fine for a natural stack...

    Both these stacks can be run 8-12 weeks, run them back to back and you're set for a long haul...

    I'll admit it's expensive but so is PCT and support supps when you add it all up I bet... Anywho it's an alternative to harsher products. If I could run 200 mg of test cyp per week and still compete as a Natural under the rules (say if they had a grandfather clause lol) I'd probably consider it if it was safe enough but that's not a reality right now.

    tks for that

  7. Thanks for all the great replys, and again, I meant no disrespect to "any" age group, as I said, Im no pup, so when I say old, its a relative term. Please keep the comments coming, as a few of you have given me some things to think about.

    Yeah, I am probably going to be looking into some of your techniques you used to cut away the extra lbs. I CAN cut and have, but I am always interested in finding out other tidbits.

    If you can convince your doctor then to take a blood test , youve moved forward. However the result of the blood test will tell you if treatment is justified.
    Definitely what I have perfected. I started doing this when I was 25 and wanted a certain drug from the doc or I wanted certain test done. I would research for about 7 days and figure out what to tell the doc is wrong with me, sure enough, he would send me right into the hospital to get the test which I wanted done in the first place or just give me the drug...i had a cool doc growing up, still do.

    Sorry - didn't notice the question until today. Pulsing works great for me. I like the slower gains, which I keep through PCT (which is strictly OTC for me). I pulse 3 times per week on workout days (M, W, F), and I stay on for at least 5 to 9 weeks depending on the compound. I have pulsed M-Drol, M1,4ADD, and D-Plex (clone of The One). I took the M-drol for 6 weeks, and the M1,4ADD was 6 weeks, with week 6 bridging to D-Plex for 3 more weeks to harden up a little. That was my last cycle, which covered 9 weeks total. I am not telling everyone to do this - this is just one of the cycles I tried using the pulsing method, and I had no sides whatsoever. Pulsing just feels less toxic to me, and I do not feel any different than when I took a straight cycle of Epistane. When I pulsed the M-Drol, I did have some minor back pumps and lethargy as is typical for that compound. I personally would never take M-Drol straight, but that is just me. I don't make recommendations, but I also don't mind sharing what works for me. I will start a P-Mag pulse tomorrow.

  12. 35? 40? Sheeit that ain't old. I'm 50, 6' 242, 10%BF, I bench close to 500 lbs and there are 20 some year old kids who stand in awe of me at the gym. Old? Says who?

    as much as i admire that anyone can lift lots of weight, to me it isnt just about lifting weights. I see guys in my gym pot bellied , no muscle tone that can lift but what they lack is muscle tone.

    Anyone can get huge , just eat fast food 24/7 ;all the things you shouldnt eat ; but once that t-shirt comes off youd think the guy never saw a gym.

    So going back to the original title, i personally think it would be better if the question was asked , can an older guy put on muscle ?

    To look good you dont have to be huge, a tighter neater toned physique in my book is much better

    This question is parallel to the ones asked by the younger teens who are "hard-gainers". I have no intention of belittling the OP or coming off in a condescending manner though.

    To me it just struck me as the same difference. Anything is possible and every situation is unique. As long as certain needs and requirements are met and tweaks and modifications are made in conjunction with the addition of consistency it is completely and undoubtedly achievable. Age ain't nothin' but a numba!

  17. Thats not the question he asked. Duh. If you want to reword the OPs question, then start your own thread. He asked, can an older guy get huge? The answer is absolutely.

    Now if you think that my BF% I've got a big gut you're an idiot.

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    That, well said

  19. One thing that we have to make clear is, if you take drugs you can get huge no doubt. I am sure if I went that route I would be much bigger making me quite massive.

    Without the drugs it's still possible to get very big, probably quite a bit more difficult though and less margin for error I would assume.

    i effing well know it wasnt the original question . anyone can get huge whether training or not Isnt there more obese people in the USA than in any other country-if your obese your huge .
    The word huge need clarifying . What are we talking about here, huge with a highpercentage of bf or huge with low bf and muscle . IMO the road to acheiving those goals is totally different for each one.

    As for you having a big gut-theres a saying over here and you might be aware of it too , "if the cap fits wear it"

    i Dont think it needed clarifying at all, perfectly clear,

    You do realize this is a bodybuilding forum? Not the "Biggest Looser"

    Not a single person here thought the OP was asking "can an old man get fat"

    Please correct me if anyone here was confused,

    Lame comeback IMO

    Who are you directing your post at and in what post on this thread is anyone rewording the OP's question?

  23. I will put this to the test after a challenge at my old gym. I went to visit and walked in on the younger guy vs older guy conversation at the gym. The manager moved us off the main floor, and we were having a good give and take on exercise issues. I had the floor and was talking about lifting a little wiser and smarter to protect against injurys, when someone in the back of the room challenged me to shut up or put up. The manager set the rules, both 5'8", I'm 30+yrs senior, In 45 days or less we start, we will have a weigh in, stats and bf done by staff. In the weigh in we are allowed before and after pics.( no cameras allowed in gym) time allowed 90 days, weight 181 plus, lowest bf and stat improvement. We are both the same size so this will be fun. He claims that he will weigh in at 215 lean and mean, maybe 220. A( he is cruising, waiting to pre-load orals before we hit it) B ( His friend said his s**t isn't here yet ! ) C ( I thought this was about gaining mass and size as we get older? I guess now, I get to prove my point) I will be 191 lean at weigh in, if I miss target, I will still be over 181 lean challenge, hell I might post the log just for the fun of of it, when the avatar appears game on.
