Strength Wars Movie

Life after bodybuilding.

With any athletic endeavor – there is a prime spot before the body starts to deteriorate and makes it near impossible to compete or train professionally. Luckily, bodybuilding has a very long shelf life as you’ve certainly seen 60+ year olds still shredded like a beast. You even have masters divisions that allow older competitors a place to still step on stage.

This doesn’t mean that certain bodybuilders don’t retire. And while some maintain a strong physique – it’s never quite the same as hardcore competition mode muscle. The video above showcases some of the most legendary bodybuilders and what they look like after many years of post-retirement life. It’s a very interesting look at just how much effort goes into bodybuilding every single day. And what happens when that effort slows down… even if just by a little.
