The guy looks to be around 30yo, so it shouldn't be too difficult. Let him try that at 57...

Actually, for most of us, this is somewhat of a false analogy. Without sustained effort, and a draconian focus on both diet and exercise, one doesn't get to look like the first photo. I'm shooting for adding some muscle mass, and getting rid of that last five lbs. of jellyroll, with any side benefit of improving lipids a welcome (and necessary) bonus. Not planning to be a contestant in the bodybuilding competition...

I was thinking the same thing. I am quite a bit older than him, also. I think the fat acquired wouldnt be as eager to go away, and the skin being stretched wouldnt be quite as accomodating in returning to its original tight tone at my age. I better not try his experiment, as my results wouldnt be as positive I'm sure.
