Geezus...is it me being racist or does that look like what Goodrum would if he actually worked out and ate food rather than cock?

My excuse for looking like shit lately is that I am 68 years old. Of course the real reason for this is that I haven't been going to the gym and working out. One thing seems sure, the older I get the more I need to workout to maintain any kind of decent physique. Seeing photos of other senior citizens who manage to look amazing is inspirational. Maybe I will hit the gym tomorrow.

Thanks for asking about my health. I had a prostatectomy on July 5, 2012. The recovery was quick and easy. My last PSA results were .02 which means undetectable. This is excellent. The doctor says I can go back on testosterone in about a year if my PSA remains like this.

I cannot blame my lack of gym time on either the prostate cancer or the surgery. I just have not been so inspired lately. I hope the fall weather will inspire me. I spent a good deal of time gardening this summer. It is exercise and it is relaxing but I don't build muscles so much doing this as I do lifting weights. LOL!

You are probably right about this. It is not like I am planning on wearing a "thong" in some bodybuilding competition anyway.  :)  It just doesn't seem dignified at my age, no matter how great I looked. Anyway, there is more to life than working out and building muscle. I achieved my goal of getting big years ago. I don't need to keep working on that same goal forever. Actually, I would like to get leaner. Clothes look better on lean people than on big muscular folks.


Title: Re: age is just an excuse
Post by: Primemuscle on September 09, 2012, 12:35:25 PM
age is also genetics.

today in the gym there was a guy, as lean as me, somewhat bigger, and....ten years older than me.

however, he looked younger than me, no doubt.

half my hair on my head is grey, at age 33, and theres no way i couldve stopped that.

it started at age 23, same goes for my brother.genetics play big role how well one ages

as for building muscle, well, age dont really matter when on hormones, with hormones you make your bodys own artifical hormonal enviroment, making any 20 year old seeming like a girl.

but with age come responsibilities like families and jobs, those keep ppl from training and eating well very often

There is nothing wrong with gray hair. I have been mostly bald since my early twenties. While these things are a natural part of aging, they don't tell the whole story. Some folks in my family have great genetics when it comes to aging. My cousin who is six years younger than I am, looks like she is 30 years old in a recent photo her husband took of her on their schooner. I have oily skin, which for me results in very few wrinkles. My teeth are in excellent shape. Folks tell me I look much younger than my age. That is no doubt just because of family genetics.

This beyond "looks good for his age", dude looks fukkin amazing.. I know him from bb.com, haven't checked his profile recently (can you post a link?). Good genetics + good drugs + consistency = halted aging, at least in some sense (as this fella would wipe the floor with someone 40years younger.. That's something..).

sorry man, but i didn't save the link, but that's where i found him, on bb.com

are you familiar with the other dude with the goofyass haircut but an OUT-FUCKING-STANDING physique?

Doesn't really "pop" in my mind at the moment, but if I'd see I probably would remember as I've got pretty familiar with more outstanding members there, over the years. Just tried to do a search on this black fella, but nothing came out. Strange, as the age range is clear: 60-67 or so, not an abundance of good looking bodybuilders in it.

If you want good skin when you're older stay out of the sun when you are younger.  Nothing damages skin like prolonged sun exposure and that damage cannot be reversed.  Unfortunately, by the time most people start to pay attention to this, the damage is already done.  Most skin damage from the sun happens in your teens and twenties--but the damage does not really begin to show up until your 40s and 50s.  :'(

I should try the other location of the gym where I train for variety. Sometimes a change of scene is what is needed for inspiration. I also enjoy changing up my routine. However, I am such a creature of habit, I have to force myself to do that.

There is no reason to believe the prostate cancer will return at this point (it helps that I no longer have a prostate). This is one of the benefits of catching it early and taking care of it aggressively. Cancer seems to prevail in my family. Although the thinking about a genetic predisposition to cancer changes from time to time (it is the just "practice" of medicine after all and they say that practice makes perfect) I tried to stay on top of any health irregularities just to be safe.

Too many use their age as an excuse.

Sure, building a purely awesome physique might become ever more difficult after 40, but someone with passion and a reasonably healthy body can develop strength and thickness well into his 50s ... and maybe even beyond.

I assume you have a darker skin tone which from an appearance standpoint looks more attractive then having light olive toned skin, like I do. I look better with a little bit of suntan. Fortunately, my skin is also oily rather than dry. This seems to help with sun damage in my case. I have very few wrinkles for someone my age. When I was a kid, I'd be at the beach for an entire day, surfing and laying on the beach. These days, 5 minutes laying in the chaise in the back yard is about all I can stand because it is boring and hot laying in the sun. Generally speaking though, you are right about sun exposure aging our skin. My mom laid out by the pool every day the sun was out. When she was 60 years old, she looked 80 years old. Of course, the fact that she smoked a ton of cigarettes everyday of her life didn't help her appearance any either.

Compared to me a 50 year old is still a kid. Earl, this fellow who works out at the gym where I do is 10 years older than I am. He still looks really fit at 78. However, he doesn't look like someone who is fit and 50 years old. It seems to me that this is simply a matter of being the best you can be regardless of your age or genetic makeup. I have no pretensions of looking like I did when I was in my 20's or 30's. I just want to look like and continue to be a fit 68 year old.
