Over 40 Bodybuilder of the Week: Larry Burt! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

I was born with a sunken chest. In the 70's, my Dad started me with weight training to correct the problem. Doctors discouraged weight training at such a young age. They claimed it would stunt my growth. The bench presses and pull-overs reversed my medical condition. Surgery wasn't necessary. I continued pumping iron to condition myself for high school gymnastics. In 1980, I entered my first bodybuilding, the Mr. Teenage Minnesota.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Consistency is the key to successful bodybuilding. My motto is train intensely, eat nutritiously, and rest adequately. Be patient and stay drug-free. Nothing worthwhile is easy! Bodybuilding will help you conquer anything in this short life.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

Russ Testo and Lee Haney. These Christian bodybuilders have helped thousands of people. I respect their integrity and personal ministries. I love Russ Testo's motivational scripture verse: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
