Good posting here guys. Dutch, your a testament to what sensible supplementing and regular exercise can do. The only problem Ive found with weight lifting is that once you make visible progress its difficult to stop. I give myself 2 to 3 hours of weights a week. I tried the bodypart once per week but it doesnt seem to be enough, and I like the endorphin release every other day.

I will be extremely happy if I have the physique and health that Dutch has at 70!
Those pics are awesome...
Correct supplementation is the key as well as a healthy dose of test I reckon to keep that kind of muscle at 70.

Yes, Dutch, could you post about diet? Whats your typical calorie intake and examples of meals? Do you prepare your own meals? etc. Thanks !

Dutch I had no idea you was 70 in your pic from past threads I thought you was 50 maybe. Good job man! I can only hope to be alive at that age, and also in good shape!

We don't do a strict diet measuring out everything but we have our basics. Our breakfast except for the occasional cheat day at Denny's etc is always for me either three eggs sunnyside up, cooked in 4 tablespoons of coconut oil, the remainder of which I use on my multi grain english muffin. The only alternative is maybe 2X a week I switch to a double bowl of Oatmeal again going light on the water as I add my tbspns of coconut oil and 15 shakes of ground cinnamon. Lots of salads, chicken and fruit for lunch washed down with gallons of Arnold Palmers (ice tea/lemonade). Dinners are heavy on chicken, turkey and beef with lots of broccoli, sweet potatoes, and more veggies and fruit. What I have done for decades also is split a bottle, or nowadays big glasses of Inglenooks's boxed Merlot so we get our daily resveritol fix. Most nights I finish off with a very large spoonful of all natural peanut butter washed down with a glass of 2% milk. We do have some favorite meals that we find are cheap, very tasty and very healthy. The strangest one is splitting a Butterball Turkey Kielbasa and a half a steamed cabbage. Its a tasty change from the chicken and broccoli but with the same advantages. OK now you KNOW we are wierd old farts! LOL

Dutch you look amazing for 70 and damn good for any age. Most high school kids have less muscle tone than you do.
Lift heavy and eat lots of dead animals! Yes, that's me in my avatar.

Thanks Dutch, always good to hear from seasoned veterans, diet is as important as the weights. Learn, teach, lead, is the motto.
