Hey guys, was just looking through some old pics and found some of me and my dad that are like 17 year old!
Anyway i found some pics that must of inspired back when i was 7 or so to get into training and this was probably the root of it all.
he didn't start training until he was around 42-43 and he is around 48 in the pics.
I always looked up to him and he was my hero.
About 30 years ago he got hep c from a botched blood transfusion in an egyptain hospital, didnt surface untill about 4 years ago, he had acute liver failure. he went from a solid 210lbs at 5'6 with 19'' arms down to 105 lbs.
Subsequently he had a liver transplant and has been on meds ever since, gained some weight back but nowhere near as healthy as his was.
About 3 weeks ago he had a heart attack cause by a blood cut, whcih was caused by the medication he is taking to keep him alive!
Anyway i just thought i'd share a pic of him.
IMHO, considering he never stepped on stage, did any kind of stage prep or cutting diet he has probably one of the best bodies for a 50yr old guy i've seen. These pics are well before his peak as well.
And it goes to show that starting in your mid 40's you can still get astounding results.
Who is/was your inspiration?
