Best Shape of His Life at 60 years old!

Joe Weaver competed in our Adonis Index senior open division and came in 2nd place. I caught with him on the eve of his 60th birthday to chat about what it’s like to get into the best shape of his life.

Amazing Shape at 60 years old!

Joe explains how things have changed over the years and how the whole process started.

He shares some valuable information about the difference between training when you’re in your 20’s and 30’s compared to your 50’s. As a senior Adonis you’ve got to pay more attention to your rest and recover and listen to what your body is telling you.

When we’re young we tend to have an immortality complex and we tend to abuse our bodies, but a we move along in life we can’t do this anymore.

The lifelong process of working out, getting in shape and staying in shape isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon, and pacing yourself is the key to getting the most out of your body without breaking down.

Joe shares many words of wisdom for longevity and being in great shape at any age. And make no mistake about it Joe is in great shape, and a shape many 20 and 30 year olds would envy.


P.S. The breathing technique Joe refers to is called “Ujjayi”

The book Joe refers to in the podcast is called “Body Mind & Sport” by John Douillard


How to Look 20 Years Younger

Getting “big” isn’t the same as getting in shape. Most guys are missing the point when they dedicate years and even decades of their life in an effort to simply be bigger. You may be able to fill out a large shirt, but you many not ever want to take that shirt off in public. Leo Bell fell into this trap before he found the Adonis Index system and got ripped at age 48! Leo finished 2nd in our 4th transformation contest and proves that weight is just a number and the leaner you are the bigger you look.

This is a trap that many guys fall into and some never get out of. Months of ‘bulking’ turn into years, and the years turn into decades. Some guys can find themselves in the perpetual ‘bulked’ state for the better part of their 20’s and 30’s and in some cases even through their 40’s.

At some point this bulking cycle has to end and it becomes time to get into real shape and show off the muscle that you got.

Building muscle mass is part of the process, but getting lean is the other part. At some point you have to accept and understand the size isn’t the only goal.

It’s never too late to get in shape, and Leo Bell is living proof that once you put your mind and effort to the right goal you can achieve amazing results faster than you thought possible. The key is opening your mind to the concept of being lighter and leaner, and then sticking to a program that is designed to get you there.
