Ric Drasin discusses the best age to start bodybuilding.

We often say here at Generation Iron that bodybuilding is a lifestyle. But for those who find bodybuilding at a very young age – what is the best age to actually start lifting weights and making that shift into the bodybuilding lifestyle? Is there an age too young to start?

Ric Drasin has been embedded in the bodybuilding world since the Golden Era and has seen it all – which is why his most recent video takes his decades of experience to breakdown what age is a good time to start bodybuilding seriously. Can starting too young be damaging? Could starting too old be a waste of time?

Of course, it all depends on your goals and what you want to accomplish. It’s never too old, for example, to start being healthier and more fit. But if you want to be a champion competitive bodybuilder in the IFBB… well that’s a different story entirely.
