Achieving his desired ripped physique at 60 was not a cakewalk for Steve. He was inspired to build it from the age of 16. However, that could not happen due to a lack of guidance. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, Steve confessed, “I hadn’t made any serious attempts to reach it, though, and having another birthday made me reflect on whether this was my last opportunity to get into shape.

Several factors convinced him to get serious about building his shape in his late 40s. Steve had certain health measures that he wanted to improve. Moreover, his spin instructor’s wife maintained her shape for more than 15 years. All these reasons made him join a reputed personal trainer. 

Steve began weight training alongside 3 full-body workouts and hitting 10,000 steps a day. Eventually, he stressed on upper body workouts and then switched workouts every week. 

Coming to his diet, Steve consumed the right amount of macros and track his calorie count on a trusted app. He had a well-planned diet supported by whey protein and protein bars. His diet helped him survive through business meets where choosing the right food was tricky.

Soon Steve was able to see the results. In 27 weeks, he lost 40 pounds and dropped from 25.5 to 10.9 percent body fat. His diet and exercise helped him a lot to achieve his mind-boggling ripped physique.
