Can an old man get huge?
Pretty much, what I want to see is opinions if a 35-40-45-50 year old with a decent foundation can get HUGE with the right training/diet/drugs/supplements.
I see old guys who are kinda big, and old guys who are ripped and old guys who are in good shape, but can one get huge, I mean really huge at that stage of life?
Before anybody takes offense, I fall into the above mentioned age categories, and only use the term "old" to distinguish the parameters of my question.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.PHF Rep

Without roids i think it would be very hard to do. Even keeping test levels high would not make you huge. Some of the otc supps would help.

IDK. I'll be 42 this fall. stats: 5-6 170 lbs. Bench 335, squat 400, never maxed out. Only a few PH cycles...otherwise just lots of good food/protien shakes, and herbal supps+my vitamins.
I'm trying to get huge, but the size of my stomach just wont let me. Can't eat enough to get to 185lbs.lol

yes and its not that hard if you have had a good workout history.in many cases i think its easer at 35 then 25 when it comes to diet nutrition and not drinking.the bigest problem i have is joints they do not hold up as will as they did at 25

Damn it !!! why didn't I think of that.... at 56 I guess I'm old, you are as old as you feel...lol. Just kidding, there is only one difference, we have to lift a lot smarter not harder. At 32 I was 241 at 5'7'' I never thought as being large, now I'm 181.5 and still growing..again. I do believe that diet and correct supplements can make all the difference. It's easier today to stay on a strict diet and workout, than it was years ago. I see us older guys getting bigger all the time, healthier and stronger.

I'm taking some downtime from the gym and I still have to eat 4x to 5x per day. I worked out with a guy who did the am/pm one meal and it was working for him. I would have withdraw doing that.

I think its a lot easier to get big at older age if you used to be big in your youth then if you never worked out much.
Muscle has memory.
Im 41, lifted hard until my early 30s, then stayed in fair shape. Then woke up last christmas and realized somehow fat-pigness had creeped up on me. Busting my ass now to get back to my prime levels, and Ive found its coming back quick....but Im thinking that actually passing any lifts that I had in the past is going to be far more difficult then regaining what I lost.
We shall see. Im certainly going to try.

Being smarter has its advantages, but I get injured more, have lower test levels and my insulin has had years of sugar. I used to never get hurt from lifting. Although being smarter keeps test high I'm still no 25yr old. Also I dont think my insulin is working as well as it used to when I was young. Trying to reverse the insulin damage. I'm 36 and still trying to get large but I've accepted the fact that I'll never be 6'0 240 with abs.

I can not set limits, I set goals. I have to agree with edwitt, he wants it and he is going after it. I'm getting my cruise controll fixed, 16 wk cycle planned start July 1st may be delayed but I have a workout and 7x per day meal plan. The wife took it to work and her nutritionist is reviewing the meal plan. ( she works at a rehab center ) Three bases now are covered, next is what to stack with test e during the 16 week run. At the end of cycle it is what it is, 200 maybe 205, no new injuries goal complete whats next, g2g again!! In short, set a goal and go for it, just one goal after another.

Didn't mean to step on anothers thread, anyone can put their .02 in on cycle thread. We just have to review our health issues and set new goals. My goals are smaller and well planned, I have had enough gym injuries and it takes alot longer to recover.

Wow - he still has hair! Congratulations to Ageless on looking great. At 46, I am currently bigger than I have ever been. I started lifting 30 years ago, although I was not really consistent until about 2 years ago. I still use a lot of weight, and have been fortunate to avoid injury so far. I am working on losing some BF, and am shooting for 190 lbs at 8% BF by the end of the summer. To compare, I competed at age 21 and weighed 165 lbs.

One other comment I forgot to make - I have 2 friends here in town, and all 3 of us are 46 years old. Both of them are also in the peak condition of their life, and both became IFBB pros last year at age 45. They motivate me every day. The bottom line is that there are many examples of older guys reaching new heights in physical condition all around us.
