Why do middle-aged men and older always have this same shitty looking physique? Posted on March 11, 2023 by Anonymous Why do middle-aged men and older always have this same shitty looking physique?
This is roids
Why would you fucking use steroids to get a body like that? I doubt it.
You’re in for a shock what old age does to your body. This guy is in his 60s minimum. This is still peak 99%. The stomach is the only thing that looks like shit
Im not saying he is in bad shape, he clearly works out. But the physique looks trash yet its super common amongst middle aged and up dudes. You are telling me they are all abusing steroids? For what reason? Does my physique just completely go away once i hit 40 if i dont roid up?
>Does my physique just completely go away once i hit 40
Yes. No. It does change with age for the worse. Your glutes/ass start sagging, your belly too even though you are low bf with good muscles.
Yep. I just turned 40 and you definitely have to work harder to stay lean. I’ve noticed I put more fat on under my chin than I used to for example.
Put on more muscle and get a calorie calculator. I found that I wasn't getting enough protein in my diet and when I fixed that and got extra sleep my gains started back up and my fat started to go down.
You get arrogant as you get older, using a calorie tracker becomes a real eye opener if you actually log every damn thing you eat. When you get older you just have a higher tolerance for shit. I can drink more and eat more and not feel the same level of intoxication or satiation as I did when I was younger. When I started adjusting my diet things started to fall back into place. When I ate more filling foods like veggies and protein instead of junk carbs I ate as much as I did prior, but it was less calories. Eventually my appetite started to taper down on it's own. Same with beer. I used to need to drink 4 or more just to get buzzed. Since I restricted that I just drink less to get the same feeling. That's still the hardest because I love drinking, but I do like the fact I look better and it takes less to get the same out of it when I save the drinking for an actual worthwhile occasion.
You will never get back the same levels of returns as when you were back in your peak, obviously, but you can do better than you think.
If a man above 45 - 50 is still lifting regularly, he is 100% on TRT. Natty purists are in for a rude awakening
Natty purists will still be alive tho
>zomg you have to…lift a bit less!
>TRT shortens your life because…..WELL BECAUSE I SAID SO
It absolutely does though he’s right.
And men who are castrated live longer. Better make your trip to the doctor and agemaxx
There's evidence that hormone replacement therapies increase lifespan and healthspan.
I think it’s ok if you literally get medically diagnosed with low T, but for most lifters it’s not something you need until about mid 50’s. It’s just big pharma pushing more monthly payment schemes on rubes, fix your diet and lifestyle first
Why would he have to be on trt?
Because your recovery is absolute dogshit and there’s no way to maintain muscle mass at that age when you lift 3 days a week
Yeah if you’re blasting massive amounts every week. Most men of age who are on TRT take low doses controlled by a physician
All these semi-buff guys that still look like shit are on trt at a minimum, but more likely roiding. You have no idea how much your body just wants to look like complete shit once you start approaching 40
Stop being a woman. A few decades ago there was a ton of high T 40-60 gentlemen running around, but now today millennials and Gen Z fucking shit themselves over grey hair and…their butt drooping….
Testosterone isn't the be all and end all of your physique, you absolute delusional retard. Skin elasticity and collagen production starts tanking by middle age for one thing, which has a huge impact on physique.
You get old, get over it. Try not to cry when your butt sags, fag
Dude his pecs/arms look amazing by any normal standard. His gut is just fucked due to the HGH palumboism. This isn't an age thing it's a "don't be an idiot roidchud" thing.
Why does alcohol cause it?
visceral fat gain around organs causes the the mid torso to bulge despite being at a relatively low bodyfat
> why does a 60yr old look less like a fitness model than a 22yr old fitness model
One of lifes mysteries i suppose
Good job not answering the question gay. So what if he is 60? The guy is obviously in shape. What about being 60 makes your muscles look like shit?
Because they age you stupid fuck, your dna gets damaged as you live life. Also that man is a roider, natty men in their 60s can look lean and still be stronger than most 20yo, they have great coordination and strength after lifting for years.
>natty men in their 60s can look lean and still be stronger than most 20yo
LMAO ROFL KEK
Nearly half of 20-39 y.o. are obese and have never lifted a weight in their lives.
He just fucking answered it you idiot wait this is a bait thread and I still responded FUCK i hate it when i do that
Could it be from visceral fat? It usually sits underneath the abs.
Are you seriously saying youd have to get on a cycle to keep up a body like that at an older age?
So we store fat different as we age?
I would buy this if it was just skin, but its clearly the muscles. Unless you are saying my abdominal and glutes actually start to sag? How do you prevent that? When does it start?
>Unless you are saying my abdominal and glutes actually start to sag?
Yes muscle starts to sag. If you train you remain tight longer but the answer is that you don't.
Thats a shame. For like the past 4 or so years ive been basically 100% happy with my physique and have been essentially just maintaining it. Yet apparently im just going to lose it to time. And im already 32 so now its giving me anxiety.
Looksmaximus who is 38 if i remember correctly said that even at his age it had started with the glutes hanging more
It’s all relative dude. You can still look great for any age. If you’re in shape at 32 you’re in a better position than most
You'll be fine, anon. I'm 41 and the only real difference I've noticed is it takes ever so slightly longer to recover from injuries (like a slightly pulled muyscle might take ten days rather than 7) and the metabolism effect - like you REALLY need to keep a strict diet if you don't want to end up a fat cunt. Apart from that, there's no discernible difference between 31 and 41 that I can see. Will it be like this at 51? Probably not. At 61? Almost certainly not. But by that point, the docs can throw T at you.
It becomes more difficult to build and maintain a decent physique as you age. It’s not impossible though. The reason why this guy looks like he roids is due to the combination of capped delts and hgh gut
Bullshit. Picrel is me post 40 during a bulk. On a cut now. I actually hate telling people my age because I like being thought of as younger looking, it's one of the nice things about being fit and taking care of your skin. The reactions are always the people being shocked genuinely.
I don't even lift over half the year. I'll basically lift from January to April. Then Summer hits and I start doing a lot of outdoor activities. I'll taper off as Fall hits and then enjoy the holidays which gets me fat. Then I start back up in January. Lifetime natty and I have no interest in looking huge like a roided out freak.
I know guys who are on HRT and they have shit diets and horrible discipline. Yea, they're strong, but look like shit. I don't know if just with HGH, but this guy has roid gut. Which is when the PEDs you are using actually increase the size of your intestines until they are literally pushing against your abdominal wall.
At this point I do consider HRT, but as a lifetime natty I don't really have an interest. Not ruling it out, but I like not having to worry about the shit ton of sides and all the people I know who do it look old as fuck. Dry, red skin, veiny physiques that don't look natural. Obviously you also have potential hair loss.
I played the long game and am a lifetime natty have a full head of hair, good skin and easily pass for someone 10 years younger. Sure I'm not as huge as those influencers on roids, but who cares? Everyone one of those guys end up getting addicted to steroids and it ends up biting them in the ass as they lean into a self inflicted body dysmorphia.
getting those colossal titan vibes
It has served me well. I used to get in fights when I was tiny. It's what got motivated to work out in the first place.
So in my head I still always kind of feel like that wimpy kid that got picked on when I was 5'4 as a freshman in highschool.
I'm over 6' now, and about 190-200 in that pic and it always surprises me even today when people find me intimidating. I still think like a little, scrawny kid who is used to being pushed around. It's clearly body dysmorphia, hopefully a minor case of it, but yea... These days, and for awhile now, I can literally see guys size me up and back down when considering a confrontation, because I still remember the days when they wouldn't hesitate to fuck with me.
It's a good feeling.
Where do you fucking live where shit like this happens commonly? Since i got out of highschool this has never happened to me. Even before i got into shape
Grew up poor and child of annimmigrant in an all white affluent suburb. Also dad was extremely abusive. Asnin threw a glass at my sister's face abusive.
You’re 40 not 65 lol
lol, I know. Which is why I don't rule out HRT down the road. Want to delay it it as long as possible. But, the thread was about post 40 bodies, which I qualify for.
Also HGH gut
the human body changes with age.
Big gut muscle no care for abs. Out lift skinny boy fuck him up and fuck his girl
Usually from alcohol. Fatty liver disease produces this look
the biggest increase in visceral fat with age seems to be caused by the shift in fat distribution
Roids + lack of cardio
Something somethifng visceral fat if i remember correctly
>tfw 31 turning 32
>just starting lifting after losing my fat gut
Fuck bros so its all pointless?
no its not retard. guy in OPs pick has visceral fat. stay away from plants/carbs and do vacuums. nothing will sag, ignore the nonsense.
What do about visceral fat other than diet of course? Alot of cardio?
its a function of your pancreas and liver. cardio wont really help. you need to lift heavy and avoid issues with insulin production and liver sensitivity to insulin. basically cut out carbs/plants entirely.
Wait are you trying to shill me keto gayry?
im not shilling you anything. build up of visceral fat is entirely a nutritional issue.
Has it ever occurred to you that his meat intake is what has caused his distended gut?
Yeah that makes sense. Snakes get distended guts from meat.
He isnt 60 yet
That's HGH gut
I'll be honest with you anon
I would kill for that physique
