One of my contests when I turned 50, my first year in the masters 50 and over, I was beaten by a guy who was 61 and stepped down in class. Phenominal!
Great job, glad to see other "geezers" still in shape out there. Impressive. Curling up and dying is not an option. I am going out kicking and screaming in the gym!

No, I will today. I have no "progress" pics to guage by, just me now. A few from years ago I guess I could dig up, but will post what I can find.Originally Posted by AGELESS
Will be 54 in a month, I admire your progress. I have been in this game for the better part of 30 yrs., and preach anti aging and quality of life. You are a model of such.

Definately an inspiration.
Good job brother!

You need to get your bodyfat down. Work on bringing up your pecs and delts. Throw in some bicep work. Don't worry it will all work out.

3 hours a day just isnt enough time - (I talk alot) but enjoy every minute of it.
I promise myself I will do better - I wish I could do more about this old face. LOL
Oh well.I should be thankful that I still have some of my hair and my own teeth!!
If I dont run out of time!

You sir, are everything that I aspire to be when I reach your age. Please, for my sake, impart some of your wisdom such as your diet, training regimen, when did you start lifting? What is your cholesterol/lipid profile like?
"Better living through chemistry" is absolutely right. Every man has a god-given right (In my humble opinion) to enhance and prolong their life through the use of technology and chemistry!! You only live once, and I hope I look like you when I'm 61!!!!

I think its only right to say alittle about my workout.
I am 61 and know my joints and chemistry work against me.
I personally am not working out just for exercise (nothing wrong with that) I'm not trying to be young...at least not with this face.
I want to look like a bodybuilder...so chemically I balance my hormones (HRT) not so much to load up on testosterone but to to keep that damn estrogen under control (arimidex).
I try to avoid sore joints and pulled muscles with my (oldman) workout
It probably wont work for you young men.
Athletes need strong stabilizer muscles to avoid injuries.Im not interested in stabilizer muscles, I just want to look good.
My wife opens the pickle jar...I cant. She just looks at me and says
"Well, you look good" LOL
Anyway, back to my theory...
Example: Horizontal dumbell press I warmed up with 60's x 15 moved to 80's then 90's x 10 -this produced sore joints and pulled delts.
So...I stopped "free weights" and started machines. Same movement groove, more resistance but didnt need to stabilize. So instead of 90's Im pushing more than double the weight x 15 - 3 sets....and started to grow thanks to going heavy and no time off for injuries.
Im sure going to catch hell for my crazy ideas from most PRO's but it works for me.
I am very reluctant to post this,it will probably show my minds slipping,
but Im always open for new ideas and techniques, so lets hear from the experts!

Actually friend, looking at you, I would say you are an expert, thats why bros are asking you for more detail, any more specs are appreciated.

CrazyCal - you look great. My oldest son is 38 also - so your dad must be about my age. Does he workout with you?Originally Posted by crazycal
When my son was born, I looked into his cradle and told him he would have a little sister .....but her mother isnt born yet. (my wife is 35)
CrazyCal - I guess you could say Im crazy too LOL
From your picture, you look like you have great genetics.

I started working out in 2000 with a trainer, 3 days a week. I used him for 2 years. Been on my own since.The past 6 months the owner of my gym as started working with me showing me tricks that I never thought existed.He dont look like much but boy is he smart. haha
I probably eat like most body builders, with the exception of getting up at 2am for a protein shake and read til I get sleepy.
As for HRT, hell these days Im reluctant to put it on the net...even though Im under doctors care..all prescription.
I do appreciate all the advice...never too late to learn.
Youre welcome to PM for my cell any time if you want to talk. (EST)

Nice work man. I'm with you on not following the PRO advice('cause if you're not a pro, why torture yourself?). I borrow what works and leave out what doesn't for my lifestyle..it's all about what works for you and obviously it IS working in your case.
Oh the HRT drugs they will have when I'm 61....
