Yup. My late wife once had a co-worker who lived on carrots and popcorn. She had and yellow - orange skin tone. Better this than hepatitis or cirrhosis.

The honest truth? No one wants to see that shit.



I have been to contests where thereís very, very little enthusiasm, almost none really, for the Masters over 60ís and 70ís categories.

I donít know how old the guy is in the first photo below but obviously he looks pretty good for his age.   But, he doesnít really look like a ďbodybuilder.Ē

In the second photo below I donít know how old this guy is either.  His upper body looks pretty good.  But having watched guys in the 60ís and 70ís categories, where they really fall short is in their lower bodies.  The legs and hips are almost nonexistent.

When you get old your knees and back are usually shot so you can't squat or do heavy leg work.

The legs atrophy.

And here I thought the problem was sitting at the computer all day reading and posting on Getbig. Read that Steve Reeves developed great calves because as a kid he worked a hilly paper route.

Anabolic steroids greatly accelerate collagen loss, which is why juicers with low body fat levels had such thin skin and hose-like veins compared to naturals. It's also why their faces look so old and parchment-like. So I guess I'm saying if these guys wanted to keep some of their skin's elasticity, they could've put the drugs away and not taken shortcuts to get their physiques.

If you really look good, hit the stage.

If you do not look good do not hit the stage.

No matter what the age.

It's not good enough to "look good for your age".

That's like saying "For a fat girl you don't sweat much."

Excellent advice. I look great for my age and there is no chance in hell I'll be wearing a thong on the competition stage any time soon.  Wink

Exactly. But that is entirely the fault of the promoters or whoever decides who steps on stage. You can be 27 years old but if you look like shit you just diminish the whole credibility and integrity of the show. If guys like Dallas are so delusional and think they can get on stage looking not only bad, but downright gross, then maybe a little brutal honesty is in order. It's just embarrassing and awkward for any halfway normal people to have to sit through that. Maybe he's doing it as a goof or joke but it's not funny. It's just gross.

There not doing it as a goof. They are doing it because they are delusional. The physique they see in the bathroom mirror is not the body others see.

Donít know who this guy is or how old, but he looks good.  But again, this is just his upper body.  We donít know what his legs look like.

the IFBB cancelled there over 60 and over 65 Categories. so + 55 is now the oldest Category (national and international). About 3 years ago the winner at the ifbb-Seniors over 65 Category (aged 72) Esmat Sadek from Egypt died 2-3 weeks after his 1st place. He was a teacher in Cairo, and well educated Person. The Sport he loved, caused his early death....but he was not the only one of the old Bodybuilders with serious health Problems. So Competing at a certain Level over 60 or 70 is a gamble with life.

Wow, I never knew Sadek passed away. I remember him from competing in all those Mr. Universe contests.

Actually, isn't this the guy who makes himself up to look old and shocks the young guys with his lifting feats?
