I was on trt for a few months, and my blood pressure shot up to 170/85 reduced the dosage and it wasn't working. I had to stop taking that stuff, it's not for everyone. If someone is taking it for muscle growth it's not worth the trouble.

@robertpresha9504 says:

Well I stopped lifting 37 years ago. I have built houses all my life .I am 64 now and getting ready to go back to the jim but I am still bigger than this guy that has been working out all this time for some reason. So I feel kind of good .But I was a monster 40 years ago.

Oh I'm sure you want everybody to at least give it a try so you can at least get a little bit of everybody's money for your BS I can't stand these guys

Wouldn't he be a lot bigger if he was juicing? It's not like he's massive, and he's been training since he was twenty. Plus T doesn't completely disappear. He's only 60. I had my bloods and T tested last year in my mid fifties and it was fine. Lifting more now that I ever did in my 30s. Down to proper routine and good instruction. I'm no expert, just questioning. Maybe he is on TRT. Not sure how I feel about that as 'cheating'. No one bats an eyelid if women have hormone replacement.

@gregsmith7821 says:

Get real, for almost all over 60's the testosterone is long gone. 'Building' is virtually imposible. Repairing is all but a dream. If you go real careful, you can get stronger and leaner but, this may come at the expence of a non recoverable injury.

Determination is great but, don't be deluded. Look after what you have and learn to be happy. The great thing is, you don't have long.😘

2 day split, rest, 2 day split, rest weekend. Always to failure for 6-8 reps, 3 sets. Preworkout aminos, post workout whey, creatine, casein before bed. ACV, garlic and cayenne after dinner. Just started Anabolic Reload. 57, been doing this for 2 years with several interruptions for blown discs (unrelated to lifting), illness and cat scratch infection. But results are better than I expected. Off BP meds, building muscle and slowly loosing belly fat. As a widower, I have nothing to loose.

Do you mean with or without steroids?

George Bush on steroids.

Hi, I think I agree with most of what you say. However, it is not necessary to go to failure or even into the kind of "lactic acid" pain you describe in order to build muscle. While it is true that compensation is in response to training stress, too much stress may hinder recovery, esp. since our recovery capacity is reduced (as you pointed out.) This could mean, either trying to train before recovery – in order to keep to some schedule – or delaying training until we are recovered and thus training less regularly. I have found that both frequent and infrequent training can work, but if the training pattern is too chaotic the body doesn't hold gains in strength or muscle. There are plenty of examples of men much older than 60 who could train or even compete in Sports (at an appropriate level) as long as their training was both relatively frequent and regular. Yet the same men would quickly lose fitness and even the ability to compete at the same level, if their training was disrupted, say by a lengthy illness. I am 68 and a few years ago, I got to 90-92% of my best Deadlift. This year, my Deadlift is virtually dead in the water. This is because of Covid lockdown plus illness, plus hospitalisation and injury – all this on top of a lifelong disability. At present I am not able to Deadlift or even do many compound movements and my strength has plummeted. However, slow and steady training with gradual progression means that I am improving – to some extent – on the exercises I can do. Current research suggests you do not have to go to failure to achieve strength gains and you can also get hypertrophy with slightly more volume, again without necessarily going to failure.

For those at risk of a fall, the gaining of muscle represents a challenge – preserving enough muscle to be functional can help prevent a fall, but excessive muscle without corresponding strength just adds weight. I struggle to get up now more than i did because of the excess muscle I gained as a younger person – as I said, I am disabled. But many "able-bodied" people over 60 have problems with a loss of fast twitch fibres and proprioception which are not solved by addition of muscle built by and for endurance. (Bodybuilding training tends to focus on relatively high reps and is more strength/endurance than power/strength.) Alongside walking for aerobic fitness there should be a focus on agility and even "power" – getting up from a chair without any assistance and without using your arms , is an example; I am not talking high jumps here. (This is something I can still do even with my hip injury.)

Finally, while it won't matter to your viewers, the pain in muscles is not caused by "lactic acid". While older books and older coaches/trainers and trainees still say it, it ain't true. The human body does not produce "lactic acid" and "lactate" is an important part of the human energy systems. There are differing views as to the cause of post exercise pain – probably because there are different mechanisms involved. I am not an expert on this, but you should be able to find detailed info online.
For an older person, training into enough pain to stop the exercise is risky because it might prevent the person from noticing other pains, such as when an old injury is aggravated or a damaged joint is being pushed too hard. (I have injured elbow joints and I can do some exercises to high volume with no niggles, but any isolation training, esp. of the triceps, is likely to aggravate the pain. I can go a little harder on pulling movements, but even then there is a risk of real discomfort – usually some time after the exercise. So I don't go to failure on these movements. I have to be careful even with grip training and finger extension work and I do not go to failure or use very heavy loads or partial movements, even though they are recommended in grip strength literature. Pavel Tsatsouline, who trained his father to a winning deadlift in his 70s, repeatedly warns against training to failure whether with weights or with high intensity conditioning. Instead, keeping a few reps in the bank and being able to go again, either in the same workout or the next one, means a more productive training career. If you are training regularly and seeing improvements in strength or in an extra rep over time, then the body will provide the muscle and the skill necessary.

I started bodybuilding in 1977 to 1981 and have a trophy for my achievements back then.
Unfortunately due to life issues I haven't done anything since 2022. My very first workout I couldn't believe the pump I got. It's like muscle has memory.

I've been chasing the perfect physique all of my life. For me, that means a natural, not too lean, NOT body builder, just enough to fill out a shirt and feel comfortable with my shirt off in public.
I have never really accomplished too much until I turned 60. I've always been very skinny and an extremely hard gainer.
There was no carefully calculated strategy or meal plan. I put on 40 lbs of mostly muscle in the last year and a half with simple consistency.
I wanted to see what would happen if I just focussed on my chest, doing lame-pushups against the kitchen counter for a few months, every day or as many as I could.
It took a bit, and I started to feel it before I could see it, but then I saw development. So, I expanded that to my arms and only focussed on biceps with simple curls with a resistance band. Success!
Now, I continue to work at the muscles that I have started to grow, but I can now focus on specific muscles and see development in a short period of time, like weeks. 
I look and feel better than ever and recently people are starting to notice! That feels great!
As far as nutrition, I eat a diner style breakfast that I prepare for myself every day and canned soup for lunch, and a light dinner of some chicken strips or dumplings, maybe pasta.
Thats' it…I look great, feel great, I stand up straighter, stick my chest out, hold my head up and feel confident. There is no science. It's just consistent work.

@Starchaser63 says:

Some day scientists will agree what I've known all my life that light weights with multiple reps and sets are the ultimate way to train for life for optimum health and well-being….until then I'll keep accepting the criticism 😊

@robertdean6222 says:

At 62 I’ve been working out for about two years every other day at the gym and every single morning with some dumbbells and physical therapy exercises. Yes, I have authorized but I just keep working it out.
180 pounds is 6 foot I’m a lean machine. No gut with a slight build 🤷🏻‍♂️. Like he says, it’s hard to gain muscle with our age but I just keep telling myself imagine if I didn’t work out what I would look like ha ha he he

@Den-nu6pv says:

This guy is taking something for sure why do they always mislead people.

@bryonseiler says:

I'm definitely going on TRT. I'm a 52 year old obese recovering alcoholic. Any improvement in my health lifestyle will be huge.

@thepaulinator6934 says:

There’s no test boosting supplement. I’m out.

Who knew President Bush would re-invent himself into this jacked build. Welcome back Mr. President!

@dive2drive314 says:

Watching this in advance. I am 37 now and getting back into the routine after about 6 years of doing nothing. i did spend about 8 years lifting consistently before that gaining about 30 lbs of muscle. It definitely is like starting from scratch and it's frustrating because I still have quite a bit of my size left so it feels weird..
