Diet is the key - the training just gives the muscle definition and helps the metabolism....Actually I attend gym 3-5 days weekly for at least an hour each but I look nothing like this dude. I'm actually not quite as poorly off as I play on this forum, but I'm no fitness star. The dinner plate is a problem I'll admit, though my slow metabolism doesn't help (Its in the family. Dad didn't smoke, drink and stuck to three sensible meals a day and worked hard as an oxy welder. But he was still a big man.) I watch friends gorge themselves with things I would never eat such as cakes, lots of chips, meat pies lots of potato, rice, bread etc and look like Biafrans. I eat less than them yet put pounds on just looking at them eating...almost. Only way I could stay trim would be to be active continuously through the day and eat rabbit food. When I was younger I played Rugby, tennis, squash well into my 30s and that's how I stayed trim then. But I stopped. Only then do I start to lose weight. But I'm quite healthy really...at least far more than most 68 years olds I know.
Just to make everyone feel better - I do Explosive training every morning with variations....but eat junk and stupid amounts with close to zero discipline on amounts and eat 2 dinners on many occasions - there is a soft shell covering muscle mass that looks sloppy and due to a bad knee injury 25 years ago....have been restricted in sports, having a season of footy in reserve grade, Master footy or touch footy and then needing a season off as the old injury gives warning signs.
Another massive attribute to this well earned soggy frame is the binge drinks come Saturday afternoon - most weeks tell myself going to start the new week with a strict regime and a well balanced diet....but some fried chicken and boubon's later - "There's always next week".....If there wasn't these morning training sessions, I think ppl would chase me down the road with harpoons!!.
