Age limit to body building
« on: August 16, 2019, 10:31:37 PM »
It is crazy to hear that there is no age limit to bodybuilding according to one radio sports commentator. He said that you can still build muscles even when you are older than 70. Maybe that is figuratively speaking but my fear of bodybuilding in advanced age is the heart. I remember a certain Tom Ortega who owned a classy gym. He suffered a heart attack and died at age 60.

I think the age limit is when you reach 60 , I think that's the time that your body need to rest and relax.

It all depends with your body and dietary life-style. It may seem urban legend now but before our time, humans lived prime to their hundreds. That was of course before junk foods and stagnation. People walk miles before but now people feel tired walking two blocks. But if you were fortunate to have a healthy lifestyle since your childhood, then you could go bodybuilding til your golden.

Probably it depends on the individual's health condition. Anyone can continue to do body building as long as his strong and physically fit. I guess muscles of older age might not grow as big as young ones but will be in shape or toned. Mostly of the people these days are more health conscious. Its an advantage that a person can still do body building even in his older years.

For me it depends to the person, if that person is still healthy at his or her age. Its okay to have work out.

I would say once you are approaching 60 you need to slow down on body building.

I don't think that there is an age limit to body building.
well I guess when you are 70-80 yrs old you will be thinking twice in lifting heavy weighs but I guess age wouldn't stop you if you really can and want to continue bodybuilding.
I have seen in some videos in the internet of a 70yr old grandpa still working out in gym and has a ripped body, so I think that there is no age limit in body building

I guess being 60 would be a good caution to body builders. Take note that a workout is different from body building which is a tedious activity when you are on training much more when you are taking supplements and steroid. Perhaps a workout will do you good when you wean away from lifting heavy weights.
