Why I Got Started

When I turned 57, I reached a point where I viewed life as if it was an arduous hike uphill every day. I was tired all the time and had little libido. I had just completed my doctorate degree and had gained weight with no time to work out. My 40th high school reunion also was coming up and I wanted to look great and athletic for the first time in my life. My goals were to develop a body that I could be proud of, to gain respect from others, and to feel like a man again rather than the estrogen teddy bear that I had become.

How I Did It

I started working out by myself at home with hex dumbbells and a treadmill 5 days per week. Then I tried the P90X DVD diet and workout program for 150 days and lost 35 pounds and gained strength. At that point, interval training was not producing enough bulk so I found a personal sports trainer who developed a specific diet and training program for me. Her training program has allowed me to bulk up and add definition while losing another 16 pounds and reducing my body fat ratio from 21% to 11.5% in 6 months. I have added boxing training once a week for additional cardio. This has helped me gain speed and endurance as well as to lose more weight. I also owe a lot to members here on Bodybuilding.com who have inspired me and have given me excellent suggestions! I could not have gotten to this point without everyone's support.

Suggestions for Others

  1. Start setting a goal.
  2. Get support for your goal from others (like Bodybuilding.com).
  3. Make health your number one priority and make your workout the most important event of your day.
  4. Start out for a few minutes and then increase minutes gradually. Remember Rome was not build in a day.
  5. Muscle needs time to grow so give your body a break, don't work out the same muscles every day.
  6. Consume protein, water and healthy foods as it is what muscle is made of.
  7. Take supplements they will enhance your development.
  8. Get a baseline on your testosterone level and supplement if you need to. Testosterone levels decrease in most men as we grow older.
  9. If you are older than 50 you need to monitor your prostate and colon health as recommended.
  10. Measure weight and take body measurements to graph your progress.
  11. Above all don't give up, a better life is just ahead!
