    Just adding to this thread as an introduction.

    I trained for 10 months to enter my first show at 61...it's never too late. I entered six shows in my first year, ten in my second. In this, my third year, I have already competed twice, once in the NPC and once as a Pro in an NGA show. I will probably compete in at least three more shows this season. I have also judged shows this year in the OCB (Organization of Competitive Bodybuilders) and FAME. I am judging another FAME show in Montgomery, Alabama this weekend and an NGA show in Tennessee and a OCB show in Mississippi later this summer. I learn alot about competing when I'm looking at athletes from the other side of the lights.

          new member here I like this section

          I didn't even start weight training till I was 31 then had no clue for about 5 years. Competed for the first time at 38. Loved it Have competed in 22 shows and done very well with a few titles.. Now at 45 I'm going to compete at Jr. Nat and Master nationals this year. After that I have made a promise to the wife of 25 years I will be 50 before even considering stepping on stage again. These long diets take there toll on me more then ever. I diet long so come show day there is not question who is the most conditioned on stage.

          I could talk about this sport and contest prep for days. For now I will just say It's nice to be here with the older folks.

                      I'm 42 and still going strong. I have no idea how much longer I plan on competing... I guess I"ll know when I'm tired of it.... I don't see that in the near future!

                      I won my class at the Jr.USA in 2006 when I was 41.
                      I think I'm just getting better~ (like fine wine! LOL)

                            Thanks Old Navy. That might have been one of the few poses I hit right. Even though I placed in the two classes I did in a tough show, I learned how important posing is. As one judge said, "He's like a kid with a nice sports car but he doesn't know how to drive it". That hit home. LOL.

                                I'm 50. I competed from the time I was 18 til 32 and quit entirely for 14 years. 3 years ago, I started back and boy has it been a journey. I discovered right away that I had arthritis in both knees from my previous training. No more squatting..dammit! No more really big legs, either...LOL! I had to dial training back to working each bodypart once a week rather than twice to recover sufficiently.

                                I planned at 47 (the new beginning) to compete at 50, since I'm 6'-4" and needed time to add mass. In Sept '06, I completely tore my left tricep from the bone on a heavy bench set. I couldn't workout the upper body until Dec '06, but wasn't up to full strength until Feb '07.

                                I competed in the Muscle Mayhem 50-over and got second.....out of Two! Too soft still. I dieted down 2 more weeks and competed in the Central Classic in Tulsa and won the 50-over (out of TWO again), but I was harder.

                                I learned a lot, especially that my body isn't wired like it was in my 20's and 30's. I know now that I'll have to cut carbs nearly to zero the last 2 weeks to shed that stubborn, thin layer of "old man" fat. But I'm looking forward to next year, perhaps competing in the Nationals Masters 50-over with 10 lbs more muscle and a lot "dryer".

                                It's been great to get back to the sport I've loved. 50 in body but 30 at heart!
