I am a National Gym Association (NGA) and International Drug Free Athletics (IDFA) Master Pro. I am doing my 20th show on Saturday, June 9th, since my first show in March 2005, when I was 61 years old. I am the Guest Poser at the 2007 FAME WNSO National Championships in Toronto.

My next show is on June 30th, the NPA Masters Universe in Ft. Lee, VA, then on September 8, an NGA Pro show in Atlanta. followed by a FAME Pro show in Miami on November 4th.

I am a lightweight (150.0) and train and live in Birmingham, Alabama. I am a certified personal trainer and run a Internet-based Distance Personal Training business. I post a journal on T-Nation in the 35 and Over thread. Thank you....

You look great for your age. Keep it up. Your legs are a little bit behind the rest of your body but other then that you look fantastic.

Thank you.

I am working hard to bring my legs up to the rest of my body. I do twice a week legs workouts, including squats, lunges, presses, extensions, ham curls, adduction, abduction and seated and standing calve raises. My legs are much improved from a year ago, but I still have lots of work to do.

I'm sure you can appreciate how difficult it is to add size to a 64 year-old body, but, I will never quit trying.

Yeah, you're looking good, and not just for your age. Honestly, if I saw a twenty-year-old on the beach with your body I'd think he looked pretty damn good!

Thanks, go & emily. I appreciate your words. I love our sport and take my contest training and diet very seriously. I am a student of the game and try to show up in the best shape of my life every time I step on to a stage. So far, I have. I am also a contest judge. I have judged in the OCB, the WNSO and the NGA, all natural (tested) federations. I really learn a lot about competing from the other side of the lights. It has made me a much better competitor.

Thanks for noticing. After my last comp in November, I took six months off and added 28 pounds of weight (140.0 - 168.0). Off season I pounded the extra weight with heavy lifting and when I went on my contest diet for my May show, I dropped 18 pounds and kept 10. I competed at my first two shows this year at 150.0 pounds, moving up a class from Bantam to Lightweight. I added an inch to my quads, an inch to my chest and 1/2 inch to my biceps. In 2006, I did 10 shows in 10 months, giving me no chance to grow. I believe my body was ready to add a little size when I took six months off from competing...and ATE LOTS OF REAL FOOD!

Thanks, Melvin. When I was 23, I wasn't built like me, either. Although I worked out some in my 20's and 30's, I didn't get serious until my 40's and didn't train really hard until my 50's. I entered my first bodybuilding competition, after training for 10 months, in March, 2005, at 61.

I is great thing to do sports at this age. The greatest thing about it, is to have the energy for it...

All the time You like to mention Your titles, but as for me I don't see a bit of bodybuilding in these pictures to be honest.

Yuris: Thank you for your evaluation. I see you are a 19 year-old student and joined this board a few weeks ago and have made a total of 8 posts, all of them in the Rate My Physique thread and five of them about yourself.

I looked at the single photo in your profile. If that is you, you are correct. Compared to you, Yuris, I am a small man. You are a much larger bodybuilder than I am or ever will be.

I am 5' 7" tall and weigh 150 pounds. I compete as a Light Weight. I have built my body as much as I can for my size and age. I train as a natural athlete, which means, no steroids, HGH, TRT, or any other illegal (in the US) muscle enhancements. I notice you didn't respond to the post that asked if you were on steroids.

I will continue to train and strive to improve for as long as I am able to lift a weight. Yuris, I wish you much success in your pursuit of a great body.
