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!

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.

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"

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
Eat clean, piss dirty

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.

Hell even an old man like me suffering from Oldfartsheimer's understood the question. I'ld only tell the OP that I restarted my lifting back in 2001 @ 149 lbs and even now after cutting down 18 lbs in the last 3 months I still hit 200. And I still lift very, very heavy for my age. Funny thing is the more I cut the stronger I look but the harder I have to worik at the same weights. For this October's B-day instead of doing one of my max lift videos I hope to look decent enough to do some pics. It's a real kick to be closing in on 69 and have guys joke about wanting to hire you as a bodyguard. I guess old guys can at least look huge LOL!

Another key consideration is how much gear to use to be competitive in untested shows, if it gets to crazy I am out. Then it would be TRT dosing for me I guess, or just stay Natural.
Anywho all decisions not lightly made that's why it will take me a year to make, which gives me lots of time for research .

I won't be using any gear, maybe some Epi again, but no AAS needles for me. I don't want to have to be on TRT anytime soon and messing with gear could put an end to my good HPTA.
I can't go into any natural shows because of doing 3 Epi cycles in the last two years and I don't want to have to try and cheat the system to compete in a natural show.
My goal is to compete in the NPC Masters as a lightweight where there won't be too many huge gear laden competitors. I qualify to compete in that show only from being in 4 NPC shows in the late 80s.
