Got some good quad development going on.  Keep up the good work.  What is your leg routine like?  How long have you been working out?

43 and still working out is inspiring!   :)  That seems like a bunch of different exercises.  I bet you don't get bored. 

I have always just done heavy ass leg press or squats till I am wiped.  Typically takes between 10-16 sets.  Then when I'm all wobbly I know I did good.   ha ha ha   ;D

Do you guys think some of the ability to bring out certain muscle groups is genetic?   ???  I am kind of thinking this is the case, or could it be more related to fat levels... not sure which or both?

well from training standpoint,you lift and overtime you see certain bodyparts grow ahead of others,,you can make adjustments or change program around to try to balance it,,when you diet or eat to gain,fat loss or maintain then as time progresses you start to see where your build needs more focus.

Good job on staying lean boss.  I am laying off lifting for maybe a week or so to give the joints a rest.  Gonna use that time to eat light (with high protein) and cardio every day.  Hopefully it will strip out some extra lard.   ;D

Lol I'm sure their future boyfriends will think twice before engaging in any inappropriate behavior.

Just curious if you have any joint issues?

I still fairly young but I have pain in my elbows, shoulders, lower back etc. nothing that keeps me from working out but I can see how another few years of moderate to heavy lifting could pretty much stop me from lifting when I get older.

Just recently (i.e. late last week) I finally came to the realization that I need to get off my fat ass and actually start doing something about getting back to training and losing weight. It's funny how strongly motivating negative events can be, but I digress.

Your pics are an inspiration nj. You're looking good.

As always, you are looking great. Can I be 46 again? Well not unless someone invents a reverse time machine. LOL! Never-the-less you are still a huge inspiration to those of us who want to be as fit as we can be regardless of how old we are. You remain my idol, (no homo).

good shape....and still not looking like 46.....(that´s the midsection of a 25 year old man ;)).

Bodybuilding/esp. "Natural Bodybuilding" is the best way to look and feel younger than the numbers in our passports.

the main reason for this fact is to be consistent (year after year) + determination,....if you like/love this sport everything else
will come (knowledge about training, nutrition, motivation,....)

i started my weightlifting training 36 year + 2 months ago... at the age of 16 1/2 years. Longest time of "no train" was about 3 weeks....(and only after a bigger surgery in hospital....).

keep pumping and stay motivated....hope we old Nattys can write with the same inspiration in 10 or even 20 years..... ;)

Do you ever wonder where the years went? One day you're twenty something and the next you find yourself pushing fifty. In my case it heading towards  eighty. I don't know about you, but I feel a lot younger and I credit it to a lifetime dedicated to being fit.

Any joint issues? What was your worst injury over your lifting career?


none now at all,,i squat 405 8-10 reps,hack 5 plates a side when i'm in zone,,leg workouts are crazy..lunges/heavy extensions/drops/

couple yrs ago i did have a very bad injury i worked my self out of no dr's,,i pinched a nerve in my upper back so severe it locked my l/s up so bad i could not even get a 25 lb dbell off my chest left side,,every week i would get stronger and go up 25/35/50 ect...took few months to get back to 80/85's again,same with shoulder press db,,bars and machines came back quicker but db's were long time,i did ice/heat/advils/..stretching,,but during the weakest point i just supersetted everything stayed on diet and got real lean ,,,now i'm good,,occassional shoulder bug /pain ,but rom is fine..

I pinched a nerve it felt in my trap back around April. I kept getting sensation in my arm on that side like when you hit your "funny bone". Anyway the next morning I wake up and my entire arm is numb. Took a week for the feeling to slowly come back, and the front of my bicep is still numb to this day.

So you are saying you tweaked something while stretching, but didn't realize the severity until you tried to bench?

I don't do inclines my shoulders don't take to it well, although standard overhead isn't a problem. I only use dumbbells for chest, thankfully (or not) I'm not up to a high enough weight that it is untenable to get in/out of position on my own (<100lbs).

I do lots of heavy flyes, what are your thought on dumbbell flyes? I'm trying to stay in this for the long run like you, could care less about lifting monster poundage.

In my opinion, walking at a fast pace is just as beneficial as jogging when doing cardio. Walking is not hard on your body like jogging can be. I usually walk at about a 3.8 mile per hour. Occasionally, I've been able to get up to 4.0 speed without breaking into a jog. It's easy to be accurate about the pace when on a treadmill.

walking or power walking is very underrated. I do a hill programme or Interval at my physio on the crosser, next day a walk about 1 hour 20 mins. I also mix it up with running and cycle around a lot. I cycled to my physio yesterday did the crosstrainer hill programme and cycled back and my legs were well pumped up. I think you need to mix the intensity up each session.

Good information. The guys at the gym with the biggest delts, work them out with very light resistance and lots of reps. There must be something to this. I've wonder if this is true with other muscles too. What do you think?

jay...lot of trial and error ,one day it clicked and once you string some workouts together and feel it you stick with it and keep at it.its the mindset 'old one'you need to get over...

for me..i been changing things up to see what results could change..

calves..was doing hi reps and burn 'pump',recently went lower reps 8-12 at the most heavy weight slow stretch tho ,,its working

chest...low reps 6-8 best pumps and fullness for me at least...I've done higher reps and supersets as well and gotten same result,,but in terms of a bigger chest look low reps/volume'sets'

tris...like higher reps and I do trisets and or supersets frequently...if I do low rep/heavy my elbows blow out after few workouts ,,so I will occasionally do some heavier low rep workouts jn between .

bis..these I mix heavy and lighter/hi rep,,i switch week to week.bi's seem to respond better to hi reps I think in the end...

back...I do a lot of volume and movements and heavy mostly 8-12 reps wise is best for me...

quads..lots sets heavy weights mostly 10 reps goal I do 8 on certain heavy sets leg presses/squats..there are times I superset as well or do hi reps 12/20 on leg presses for pumps.extensions/lunges are higher reps 12 and above but still heavyish weight..

hams,,same 8-10 reps max weight that can be done for those reps ..again I will superset as well which last few weeks I've done with legs ,,supersetting means nothing to me I can do same weight I do normally even with increased set time and tempo..

delts already mentioned earlier..

I'll take what you've had success with under consideration. One can't argue with success. I have to change stuff up because I bore easily and I don't want that to happen.

My elbow was sore enough this morning that I put Bengay cream on it. That seemed to take care of the problem.

sorta I guess ,depending on light and how lean as well,i always had that gap ,would have liked more closed and low even pec line,i have good outer and upper tie ins I guess that made chest look fuller in some poses 'like side chest',they look flatter on the most muscular but I hit delts hard over last few yrs to look good in that pose,,,no offense taken at all'

great points nether i keep a keen eye on changes i see or ways to train around or even to maximize any boredom or 'just getting by'i don't fall into those easy ,i try to stay motivated in either strenght or pushing by super or tri sets at times ,age means something of course but i still approach it as i'm still into the 'routine'hard training forget 'age'

here was my leg workout today

leg press started i warmed up few plates a side there was a 25 on each side there already so i started throwing 45's over them my work sets were 5 plates and 25 per side,6 plates and 25 per side,7 and then i added a 25 on ;last set so total 16 plates were on the sled ,i repped 12/10/10/10/8

i then close foot squatted 225/275/315/315 12/10/10/10 ,,on a heavy day i hit 405x8

extensions sets 12 always 205/220/235/250

great points nether i keep a keen eye on changes i see or ways to train around or even to maximize any boredom or 'just getting by'i don't fall into those easy ,i try to stay motivated in either strenght or pushing by super or tri sets at times ,age means something of course but i still approach it as i'm still into the 'routine'hard training forget 'age'

here was my leg workout today

leg press started i warmed up few plates a side there was a 25 on each side there already so i started throwing 45's over them my work sets were 5 plates and 25 per side,6 plates and 25 per side,7 and then i added a 25 on ;last set so total 16 plates were on the sled ,i repped 12/10/10/10/8

i then close foot squatted 225/275/315/315 12/10/10/10 ,,on a heavy day i hit 405x8

extensions sets 12 always 205/220/235/250

i will lunge usually as well ,,nit this workout

Being realistic about the limits of one's genetic possibilities isn't settling in my book. If someone was 5' 5'' as an adult, it would be unrealistic to believe they could grow to be 6' 2".  The important thing is to be the best you can be whatever your genetic predisposition.

And you are right. People who think this way, limit their possibilities. It was kind of an epiphany for me once I came to terms with the fact that no matter how much I wanted it, I was never going to be really big, no matter how smart and hard I worked out and no matter how much I ate. This wake up call took me most of my adult life. Once I decided to work with what I had, my workouts became more consistent and productive.

my shoulder for those who followed last oct through now has healed nicely,i'm back to just about full strenght on press movements or close and along this few months have changed some things with rom and different lockouts that i have slacked on,i feel like i gotten more in tuned again with my bodyparts instead of trying to out muscle the muscle so to speak.i came off last summer into early fall lighter than usual i was a very lean 175 but felt small which is normal in 'clothes 'i felt great tho but again those who remember i had a health scare from mid august through october and still had followup in jan which everything worked out thank god,then the shoulder hit too so i wanted to bulk up a bit stay tight but a little filled out than last few yrs ,the injury came so even though i trained lighter on certain things i still was able to train pretty hard and i was eating more as well.i also for the 1st time 'ever'started treadmill light sessions 2-3 times week and still doing it,i feel cardio helps as well with the total process,nothing crazy or long just get blood going,i was very much anti cardio due to thinking what waste of time and 'muscle'lol,,said fuk it and i like it tbh...my weight is 190 lbs at the moment and considered to climb to 200 but i think at that weight i will look too bloated at 5'7 i was always anti perma bulker,,i think lean works for me.....took this pic 2 day no pump like most of my pics..

Maybe a minor setback but at least you didn't regress

I am both ways,,i have pics from other cameras and lighting and u can see chest/delts I have a lot of vascularity ,where I take pics now doesn't show..im very happy right now current shape/condition for summer i'm bigger than last summer due to my prostate issue behind me I was down 10 or so lbs last year I was really ripped tho  ;D...my arms are bigger 'bicep'wise I worked a bit more there this year around shoulder injury,,my delts and chest are full as well again ...I play with my diet and tempo training/cardio that's all someone hormpne free could do...I also take arginine/agmatine more in summer it increases hard look and vascularity tenfold..

Yes, tennis ball is good.  I've used that method before.

Here is another thing.  Once you start using one of these, you will never want to do without.  They fix problems and keep them from coming back.

Isn't coming back after even a short break great? I know I find it inspiring. Careful though, it is easy to overdo it because you're so excited to be back at the weights. Of course the band and push-up exercises probably kept you 'tuned' up.

Your tan looks good even if it isn't as dark in the photo as it really is. My tan is all 'fake & bake' so far. I need to hit the beach (on the river) a few times to really get it going. You're gloss looks stage ready as does your physique.

I started back working out at the gym last Wednesday. Even though I kept up with upper and lower body movements, mostly weight free while taking my break, I am a little bit sore. I think I will take tonight off and work my quads tomorrow at the gym.

I tried a fast tan on my shin and ankle Sunday morning. I spilled hot bacon grease on it. Not fond of the resulting color which is somewhat purple except where the big blisters are. Doctor says I'll live. -Not going to be doing any leg extensions for awhile though. Oddly, there is no pain today.

The ocean is a great healer. Maybe I should take a trip to Seaside.

I actually was able to work quads last night, including leg extensions, which I did on a machine that has a bunch of adjustments, allowing me to avoid contact with the burn.

Looking great as usual. 190 lbs. with a lot of this weight in your quads.

I ate like crazy and ended up 2 pounds lighter the next day. I'm below my goal. Maybe it's time to add an extra healthy snack or two.

At least you can get the "right ones". In my case, none of my selfies look good....could it be that what I see in the mirror is total fantasy? LOL.

Those undies hit the dust pile awhile back. LOL. I'm aware that I am in superior condition as compared to most folks my age. Being in great health makes this easy. As for being critical, you've got me. I am my own worst critic, despite the shit I get on Getbig.  ;)

i try to stay as lean as i can in 'winter'months but recently have been try to put some weight/water not so much a 'bulk'total smooth out but more good food but a bit more that could vary more fats/more carbs,protein is always same in each meal and or snack/filler 'post workout.in recent years bodyweight #'s have taken a step aside more consistent conditioned look 'abs all year and nice decent bf levels not levels that would be stage worthy but under or close to 10 pct..i feel good at 185/190lbs ,sharp like 2 summers ago 175,,,right now 190 ,,200 would be nice but if i look sloppy i would not stick there long if i even got there..

my eating day ,,,pretty much the norm..weekends i miss a few meals.snacks

7am egg beater omlette/either some shredded chees or turkey 'sliced'mixed in..cofee

at work 730 to 830 1 packet flax oatmeal 'organic kind taste awesome just hot water nothing else added

10-1030 greek yogurt 12 gr protein and add 25 grs whey mixed right in like a pudding/banana

1pm usually hi protein grain bread with turkey or chicken breat'grilled w basmati or brown rice single cup brand just micro,,then a fruit and usually granola bars both in package'nature valley'i use all flavors there good 'they have a lot of crap /carbs but i like em..

3 or 4 i might have a fruit at work or oatmeal again

630 dinner chicken/steak/burger whatever wife makes/always salad/veggie

730 5 grams creatine/arginine both powdered form,,i don't use creatine all year or sometimes not at all 'like yrs'right now using again i feel bigger on it'lol'

8-30 train 1;20 to 1.5 hrs training

after training usually cereal 'cheerios/chex/life with scoop protein powder 'i use water no milk'to mix/eat/fruit/i sometimes eat some junk carbs grain crackers/peanut butter sometimes like a small gorge fest carbs..not every post workout but some days i eat more,,

i use pbutter/olive oil fats
low fat icecream or gelato for treats again not every day tho depends on time year if leaning out more i do less.

i still have pretty good metabolism for my age

cardio very light 2x per week after training

my routine

mon chest/tri/abs/treadmill'depends'

tues off

wed back,traps/abs/calves

thurs delts/bis/treadmill usually

fri off

sat usually legs top to bottom if not...i work every other sat

sun legs

on weeks i work sat i will do pump day at home just move around movement to movement all around 'i have pretty good setup at home to get by days i can't get to gym,,

there ya go...

Who cares if you have Shawn Ray's once upon a time muscularity. He doesn't look that good now and you do. You rock! (just because....no homo). It is good that you are varying your poses. There is more going on and this proves it. Get a dark spray tan and you'll look better than he ever did. LOL!

I read your diet routine. It's amazing. I can't imagine eating that often. The best I've ever managed is 5 meals or snacks a day. You are giving your digestive system a workout everyday. My guess is that following this plan maximizes your metabolism. Do you agree?

i guess ,,sometimesi eat more loose and look better fuller and just as lean,,i always keep the abs ,i drink a good amount water and always protein'not excessive'per day ,at this point its just conditioning thats going to make difference ,gaining too much bodyweight in quest of more size is moot anyway i am at size i'm at and thats that,but thanks for keeping up in my threads really appreciated...

Damn, looks pretty good and lean. Don't let the stress of your current situation get to you. I made that mistake and put on about ~15 lbs for the last couple months because I was at risk of being evicted.

Thanks Scott,that's quite a compliment,I always saw that  vision as I honed my build.I loved those builds back then ,as be there said your going to look the way you do no matter what,it's genetic big,small,thick,shape and look muscle,how lean all around you can get no matter how hard the diet ,I always followed basics such as there is one diet just eat to where or how you want to look more or less .
