The bought media promote Photoshop enhanced images of old bodybuilders who “look better than a 20-year-old”. Nice try, but try harder next time. You can’t fool me. I know how the trick works.
Obviously, I am not talking about the mainstream explanation which is usually something extremely delusional (e.g., “I take protein powder mixed in my own urine. This keeps me young and strong. Ah…and I also deadlift”.)
The secret of the old lifters are anabolic steroids and growth hormone. That’s the only way for the washed up heroes to keep their muscle mass while the rest of their friends remain skinny-fat veterans who would look good only in a zombie movie.
The media and the idiots who are too stupid to realize what’s going on love to discuss similar stories. I guess this makes people feel immortal. “I will be a beast, forever.#beastmodetilldeath”
My favorite is when minions start sharing memes of old muscle superstars entitled: “The abs of a sixty-year-old beast.”, “Age is just a number.”, “Lift heavy forever.”, “Death is certain, having visible abs at 62 isn’t.”
Honestly, this is a deception because the main engine of the forever big & ripped life does not hide in eating fruits and vegetables.
Undoubtedly, lifting and eating healthy will make you look and feel much younger than your coevals whose main physical activities are looking for the TV remote, going to the store, reading the newspaper even though it’s been saying the same thing for the last 30 years, and talking how back in the day you could buy a house with 10 dollars.
Having completely ripped abs from top to bottom coupled with huge 18-inch arms is extremely hard regardless of age. Nevertheless, the old heroes want us to believe that it is possible if we follow their plan. Those guys love selling all kinds of diets, special training seminars, voodoo and other tricks, but they rarely talk about the real backbone of their forever young appearance. They prefer to keep it to themselves while discussing nonsense like “the proper angle for triceps pushdowns”, “growth hormone released after squats and deadlifts”, “high protein intake”, “anabolic window”, “desiccated liver tablets”, “the perfect watermelons for lifetime of shredded abs”, “glute activation during squats” and other distracting topics.
The ironic part is that it takes very little logic to realize what’s going on.
The most important factor for muscle growth is not how much you squat or deadlift, but how high your testosterone is. Evidence? Natural women are weaker and smaller than natural men because they have low testosterone.
Therefore, you can be certain that the muscle mummies with enormous arms and lean abs are not natural. You can look good for your age, but there are limits after all.
I’ve seen guys like that in real life too. Usually, they are big 40-55+ men who lift super light weights and just go for the pump. The quality of their musculature screams steroids.
Most of the time they are also individuals with high income who invest in their external appearance because they want to live forever and keep up with the youth. The kids look up to them.
“So, what should I do to get big triceps like yours,” asked the naive young boy.
“I just use the rope instead of the bar for pushdowns and get a massive pump. That’s how I got my triceps so big,” replied the muscular senior citizen who had pinned his glutes a few hours before.
“What about the bicep peak? What should I do?”
“I can tell you what I do – spider curls followed by concentration curls. Also, it’s really important to imagine that your biceps are as big as mountains. The power of visualization is highly underrated. I got this trick from Arnold and his friends. It works. Look at my guns, little guy! 19 inches with visible biceps heads! Before visualization and spider curls they were only 13 inches,” added the man.
The guy was a bankster loaded with tons of money. He was 55 years old and had a 26-year-old girlfriend with serious daddy issues.
“Nice arms man. I would kill to have a body like yours,” said the naive young boy who was a floor cleaner working for the same bank.
“One day you may, son. Just keep doing what I told you – rope triceps pushdowns, spider curls and visualization. Ah….I almost forgot. Make sure to drink one of those every three hours,” said the muscular daddy and drank his protein shake down to the last drop.
“Those guys are old. If they are juicing so hard, how are they still alive?”
The grandpas are using relatively small dosages and have an army of doctors monitoring their health constantly. This prolongs their existence significantly. In addition, many are retired bodybuilders, and we all know that those individuals have otherworldly organs that can endure abuse for a very long time.
“What’s so bad about using drugs if they keep you young and strong?”
There is a big difference between using and abusing. Many of the granddaddies who have become the symbol of “Old but BIG” don’t do TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) for medical purposes. Their motto is: “Juice Till You Die”. Of course, they will never tell you that directly.
