Dennis Quaid is 6’0″, #175 at what looks to be well below 10% body fat.
By comparison, I’m 6’1″, #230 at 13% body fat, which places me in the top 1% of my age group.
Most people consider this extraordinarily fit.
But I’m not shredded like a slab of turkey jerky, and herein lies the rub.
See, in order to put on – and hold – lean muscle mass at less then 10% body fat [at age 61!], you’ll need help of the preternatural kind.
To wit, Quaid has more lean, angular mass on his shoulders and arms than any man his age can normally produce without “help.”
I’m not accusing him of steroid use because I don’t know him. Maybe he’s a genetic freak. I’ve seen a few in my day.
For everyone else, pulling off tons of lean mass with low body fat is impossible without tinkering with testosterone levels.
What? You think we’re immortal?
Since when do men our age look like Quaid?
Some of you may consider him too lean, too small…kind of ragged, wasted even.
But for men who want this look, it can be acquired at “wellness” clinics and individual physicians operating throughout the United States.
1] If you want to perform at levels similar to what you achieved at age 30, you will need a lot more than hard work coupled with a hope and a prayer.
2] I’m not judging, just exposing the truth.
3] You have to decide if the consequences of steroid use are worth the risks.
4] Denial is the mother of delusion.
5] I don’t care how Dennis Quaid chooses to live his life. His job is to entertain, not inspire.
Just trying to keep it real around here.
