I'm 49 and credit Ostarine with bringing my cuts back, I love the stuff. I never let myself get fat, always had a quick metabolism, but you lose the defination as you age.

With Osta I don't even change my diet, still drink beer daily etc, and the bodyfat melts off in caloric deficit. I usually run a full body workout, EOD. The Osta holds muscle even in deep caloric deficit. Seem to make joints feel great as well.

I cycle it usually @20mg for 8 weeks on/off. I have also used Rad140, LGD, S4, but I like the Osta for the above reasons, and less supressive than Rad. I turned to SARMS due to prostate issues from dht,  (Test, Masteron, Proviron, etc...) I might look at running some low dose test along with sarm cycles in the future again at some point.

Feel like I should just go for one of those meal plan things. I got a 18yo son that's into bodybuilding, he does it. Looks easy, he just grabs a meal off the pile a few times a day. Usually grilled chix, rice, broccoli. Fucking same thing over and over, but I see that as no problem for my fucked up palate.

You don't need those ripoffs man.

Grill/bake/sautee a bunch of chicken/steak/burger/chops etc... and freeze it in one or two day portions. Stuff last months if needed.

Cook a bunch of cabbage, black beans, potatoes, greens etc... stuff is good in the fridge four days.

You can portion stuff out in little containers if you need the meal prep done the night before on busy days.

Its like 10x cheaper than those meal prep companies and way better if you (or wife) make gourmet sides and grilled stuff of your own.

I just ate mashed sweet potatoes my wife had made for 5 days straight as my main carb. Delicious, healthy and dirt cheap. I would not eat 5 day old meat but stuff like sweet potato tastes perfect, even on day 5.

Just my 2 cents.

banco - I did it late 30's. Getting there isn't that hard. Staying there for any extended period of time without drugs is very hard.

True. Getting really lean is tough but possible but staying super lean for weeks and months? I have not been able to accomplish that without stimulants. Besides, the reward for being real lean really doesn't justify the hard work it takes

If you find the right foods and meal prep it is possible to maintain single digit body fat year round without being hungry or suffering. It’s about eating foods that are low in calories and have the right macro breakdown while being satiating at the same time.

With that said body types have a major impact on your ability to get lean and stay lean. I have the distinct advantage of being an ectomorph who is naturally tall and lean.

You're on TRT and don't have abs? You won't get them because you don't have what it takes to get there.

Prove me wrong

My uncle has a ripped 6 pack and he's in his 60's. No drugs. Just works out a lot.

Most people are going to need to diet though. It's all about what you eat.

Something along the lines of Paleo, and it will almost be impossible for you not to get there eventually. Lean meats, veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds. The end.

How hard was it? I am thinking about going for it. I am 5"10 188 pounds and 44 years old and on the muscular side. The lowest I have gotten down to was 179 over the last 20 years and I still didn't have abs. I probably would have to get down to 165 pounds to have abs.

 

At this age it won't be easy and my face will probably look 7 years older than I am now. I have the type of body where I carry fat on my waist. At 180 pounds you could see the veins in my arms popping out but to get that belly ripped I would really have to get down to probably 165. 

 

To the guys that did it in their 40's how hard was it? Where you able to lose that extra fat or does it just kind of stick there because metabolism being slower? I am on TRT and lift 4 days a week but looking to challenge myself.

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

 

 

Im 39. I have had an 8 pack since 17. Im 39. I did get up to 190 at a desk job. Im now 143 5'10" and ripped, energetic, and very active.

But how old are you?

Cant tell you how much I appreciate the info. Truly do. I'll start planning out something tonight. I have to fix the diet. Really convinced I had asymptomatic covid w some residual taste loss. It's weird.

 

The meal prep thing, funny.. what my kid has been doing is getting free trials for like 2 weeks at a shot. Hes going on almost 3 months now, just jumps company to company. He got what had to be a $200 shipment for like $30 the other day. After the trial, he just jumps to another one. If you are single and broke, take note!!! Awesome quality food, but he would never pay full.price.

Check out Paul Newman (born 1925) in Cool Hand Luke (released 1967) - he was 42 in the pic.  Those are decent abs and decent shape for a 40+ year old example of the 'greatest generation'.

Besides exercise dropping dairy and sugar/deserts made me leaner.
