49, 5 month shy of 50.

This is impressive. Good inspiration for us in the over 35 crowd. I see you’re 6’1 at 205 lbs, 5% bf. Is that your weight / BF in the picture? If so, what’re your “off season” numbers?

Pretty close, I think I was at 6-7% in these pictures and 207. I am slighly leaner now, about 2 1/2 weeks left. I am just trying to maintain at this point. I feel like I am ready. Off seasson was 220 and about 12%.

Very dry and lean, but I have to ask “what happened to your arms?”. Now I know we had a recent spat on the forum, but I think we overcame that like men should, so I’m not trying to dig at you. However as an assisted lifter, I would have expected to see some triceps.

True. Arms look lack-luster, even for your age. Granted, that can be easily remedied. Have you been incorporating direct arm work into your program?


#13

still, very impressive imb


#14

Amazing arms but look crap compared to rest of your body your almost good except for those arms great job regardless


#15

awesome conditioning! You look like you have muscles that aren’t even in the anatomy books! Bigger biceps and triceps would be good, but I’m sure it’s not for lack of trying. Best of luck in your comp!

Seems he has high tri/insertions and short bi insertion. Something I’ve been dealt genetically also. Damn you guys with them cantaloupe tris!!!
