Who's the oldest muscle man?
 
I am curious of the relationship of built muscles and age. How long can a person keep his built muscles in relation to his age, 50, 60, 70, 80 and beyond?

Is there any scientific study done and comparative profiles made on this?

There are many examples of those who keep themselves up until late in life. I read that 96-year old Jack LaLanne literally died with weights in his hands. I'm 56 and I don't think I've lost anything yet. As I age, my motivation to lift only increases.

When I was younger, I'd get tired of working out, and I would quit for a few months. It didn't seem like a big deal. It wasn't hard to get back in shape. But, now, I don't dare get out of shape. I don't want to be just another old man. I like it when people think I'm younger than I am. This may sound bad, but I kind of like it when some 20 or 30-year old is jealous because I'm more muscular than he is. I don't want to lose that.
