In the modern age of the internet there is really no excuses when it comes to building your best possible physique. While not everyone has the incredible genetics of top tier bodybuilders, most have the ability to get into the gym, eat right and apply themselves to make great gains.
As we age the ability to build quality muscle decreases, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely gone. Even at an advanced age we can still have incredible physiques. But starting early and being consistent is the name of the game for longevity. In the case of veteran bodybuilder and actor Lou Ferrigno, having all those many years in the gym have carried over to his physique at an advanced age.
Having put in serious training for 58 years, Lou Ferrigno has been able to maintain an impressive physique. His time as a competitive bodybuilder saw him face off against some the most legendary competitors ever. Chief among those rivals was none other than the legend Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The twos intense rivalry featured in the 1977 documentary Pumping Iron inspired a generation of bodybuilders. They inspired each other as well to be the best bodybuilders they could be.
