    I'm starting to work on my body (late starter) because I see so many guys looking incredible it makes me feel I'm missing out on the real me or what could be me - feeling strong, fit, confident and sexy.

    I want to develop broader chest, bigger shoulders and arms, rounder glutes and heavier thighs and a slim waistline. That for me, I'd be happy.

    What's yours or what do you admire in others?

    I like a massive chest, shoulders, traps and arms tapering to a smaller waist. The classic V. No, I'm not there yet and probably never will be but I'm improving every year. There does come a time for us older guys where we will not be able to maintain so I don't want to get to the point that I can't reverse down to trim but solid. Genetics has a lot to do with what any individual can aspire to...

    This is true. Genetics can be a drainer. As can age. But we can only try.

    Thomas Jane in The Punisher and Brad Cooper in American Sniper are two of the most impressive actor transformations I've ever seen.

    As for me being there yet... um - look, a butterfly!

    (Note: I'm not quite sold that BC's diet was paleo, and actually 8000 calories a day. But whatevs).

    I wonder what a 8,000 calorie Paleo diet looks like? I ve basically lost weight continuously since I started.

    I like the all-round fit look - cross-country skiers, swimmers... people that look like they can do something with the muscle.

    I got there, and like you, came to it late. It can be done - hang in there!

    When I sleep on my chest instead of my stomach, and when I have difficulty putting on a shirt, that's when I know I'm closer to my goal.

    This. Dan Osborne's physique does it for me. This would be my ideal. I almost reached this look back in my prime years. I fell short 'cause I wouldn't give up carbs completely. I still look pretty good for my age, so no complaints, but this guy's look is the best I've seen.

    It will be a long time before I attain the ideal physique. My current employment and financial situation make purchasing a gym membership a relatively low priority for now.icon_sad.gif In addition, I was hit by a sudden case of shingles on my left torso late last month and I am still in recovery stage.icon_sad.gif

    Don't despair man. Once you fully recover, consider beachbody workout vids like Insanity, or Max30. I highly recommend it.

    At this point, I'm not looking to change anything. While I'm far from perfect, I'm happy to maintain what has taken me half my life to achieve.

    8000 calories a day in any form is probably not advisable, unless you're dogsledding for a month above the arctic circle.

    clearly not there yet. Maybe in the next 5-10 years.


    I hope you're clear that none of those guys are natural.

    You could look like that within a matter of months if you were to take the anabolics and androgens that they use. You already have an excellent base to work with now.


    Lol im aware of what aas bodies look like. My friend swim has dabbled in aas before, and in my opinion you can't attain what they have in a matter of months while on, unless your some sort of hyper responder. Maybe like 2-3 years depending on how often u cycle/blast and what compounds/ doses you use.

    I'm not saying anyone could look like those guys in a matter of months. I'm saying that you can because you're already very muscular and developed. You wouldn't need much more size to look like those guys.

    I just started this thread and this guy completely transformed his body in four years. He didn't do it naturally but that's a HUGE transformation in four years.

    I guess we'll find out in about 16-17 weeks when my friend swim finishes with 750test 500deca

    Athletically speaking, I love parkour and mud runs. There's nothing better than putting your fitness to the test and those are two great ways to do it. I've successfully completed 4, 6 and 10 mile mud runs but I'm still an amateur as far as parkour is concerned.

    These guys are pretty lean and i'm not fully sure if I'm motivated enough to get that physique so you may not see me jumping over rooftops just yet lol.
