    Hi boys,
    How many people around 70s did you see in a good shape?
    Do what you can do, listen to your body, feel your body, drive your body.

    “Good” shape and “great” shape are two different things.

    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.

    Me too.

    Someone on here told a story not too long ago about how they saw a guy around 70 come into his gym and do deadlift reps with 400 pounds wearing work boots and pajama pants or something like that. In my mind I immediately made that a goal of mine LOL. To me what made the story even cooler was that he had never seen him in the gym before so he was not a regular.

    Fuk yeah, cool story, dont quote me on this I dont know the biology behind it, but I wonder why not staying active and keep exercising all your life? It seems like most people just give up in their mid 30ies or something and never bother again, while really, what's stopping you from keeping up? In return youd be healthier and live longer, but more importantly, you'd live BETTER. It seems self defeatist to stop training because uh, i am aging, it's harder?? Most elders I see(but I dont actually know anyone older than 60 who could like, do 4 push ups) are just stuck to a chair, or moving very little, even if they have no medical condition.. but why?? So I too make it a point to be like the guy in your story when I get to that age and I am always inspired when I see it

    Yes that's it.... Not sure what you have against me, but it's cool. I'm sure you're out at home depot in a tight t-shirt admiring men's bulging calves, have fun with that.

    He most likely made that comment, then put you on ignore (like before), so he can't hear you (or me).

    Around here those "professionals" are on bicycles with Lance Armstrong type racing uniforms. They are all like 6' to 6' 2'' and can't be much more than 150 lbs. Every ride to work requires the "jersey". I'm trying to equivalent it to me walking through the door in a tank after an upper body workout. I'm guessing they might have a few thoughts if I ever did...

    He’s the one and only person I’ve ever had to ignore (for my own sanity)...but now that I see his comment, well, it’s pretty hilarious he answered his own question...What do I have against him? When he’s not saying something just stupid or giving horrible advice, he follows up his comments with an attempt at lame insults. It’s gotten old to the point where I just don’t want to see it anymore.

    Not sure if it's the same story you're talking about, but I've posted pretty much that, maybe 2 months ago. I've seen the guy once again since then.

    He doesn't obviously look like he lifts, I'd guess mid to late 70s, maybe 5' 11" and 140-150lbs (hard to tell as he doesn't wear gym clothes). He comes in so quietly most people wouldn't notice even though he's not dressed "gym". Does three heavy deadlift sets all calm no stress no big deal as if it's one plate. And then quietly wanders away again. Because he's not in the gym more than 15 minutes, not close to breaking sweat and not dressed for gym, I wouldn't be surprised if he just stops in when/if he drives past.

    Since he looks nothing special (but is clearly in great condition), does that count here, is this thread about people Looking in great shape?
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    Since he looks nothing special (but is clearly in great condition), does that count here, is this thread about people Looking in great shape?
    Ha ha, well, there aren’t any thread rules. . I see plenty of “old” guys who look “normal” and are walking around without hunches and limps, and I live in a rural area, so I’m sure a lot of those guys are farmers and manual laborers who are capable and “in shape”...so I guess my original observation was that I’ve not before seen a guy with actual visual muscle mass beyond what one would expect on a “normal” healthy adult.

    It all starts with being educated in health and nutrition, this starts back in first grade.
    What one does with the information is up to them, it is no different then making other "Wise" choices in life...

    Yes that’s it! It was not related to how rare it is to see an older guy with a good build but was in reference to those who keep lifting in the later years.

    I also like your description of “no fuss” with this guy. There are a few guys in my YMCA who make a scene when they are lifting heavy, slamming weights down etc... There aren’t many who do that and they are probably in their 20’s and 30’s but I find it annoying that they are looking for attention instead of just getting their work in.
    Bodybuilding is much more than an hour in the gym a few days a week---it's a lifestyle that changes all your perceptions about how to live, eat, and rest. It feeds the mind as much (and sometimes more so) than the body.

    These days, there are cycling back packs that barely touch the back, panniers, trunk bags and handlebar bags. Anyways, how could you hate bikes? Next to running, it's the best way to see the world.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    It wasn't my own question, I responding to your comment. You do things obviously by the book, I do things a bit differently and have different advice, nothing wrong with that.

    It's entirely biased and irrational and says more negativity about me than it does about bicycles. I just can't come to terms that the engine is missing.

    You're the engine! The bicycle is the most energy efficient form of transportation ever invented.

    You can stuff a lot items in those back pockets, spare tube, tire levers, cliff bar, co2 cylinder, your cycling jacket, leg warmers you had on earlier...

    I would associate the road cycling to some extent with older wealthier "In shape (or not)" guys, when I did a 220km charity ride in spring last year there were more than a few older...probably white collar dudes riding $10K+ time trial bikes.(called MAMILs..."middle age men in lycra"...come to think of it one of those guys was probably 65 with a good sized pot-belly. I was not committed that much to cycling again at that time... I was one of a fewer blue collar fellas riding their mountain bikes...because its the only bike I had access to, wearing cheap biking shoes and touring baggies.
