    I keep telling myself the more muscle I get, the more will grow from it. Seems true enough to some extent, but truth besides the point, with this approach age doesn't matter - effort does.
    These are not the carbs your looking for.

      It is never too late as long as you are doing it for your own satisfaction. As long as you take your training and nutrition seriously, your body will respond to exercise no matter what age, enhanced or not. I competed in my first competition in 2007 along with my son Jon at the ripe old age of 46. I competed again in 2009 and 2010. I do it because I got bit by the bug and I like to see my body changing from off season to contest shape. It sort of becomes a journey of self improvement every prep.

          Dude, in five years you could gain anywhere from 40-60 pounds of quality pounds and probably not need a shit load of gear unless your genetics suck. Will you win the Nationals?...not likely unless you start using from the start, but you could win a local show for sure. It's not like you are starting at 50. That might be a stretch, but still possible in my honest opinion if you have the money and time.

You probably won't be the biggest nor the most conditioned guy on the stage but that doesn't matter. The show is about your success. It doesn't matter where you place - only that you had the balls to get in shape and get in front of others. Go for it.

                Thanks. I think most master competitors realize we are not going to be Mr. Olympia, but who cares. When you go to the gym you do it for yourself - same thing with competing.
