70-Year-Old Bodybuilder Sam Bryant Jr. Is a Fucking Beast

By 07.22.14


This man is 70 years old. SEVENTY…years old…shrugging 120-pound dumbbells. Holy shit.

Sam “Sonny” Bryant Jr.’s story is one that surfaced a few months ago, but I just saw it in my Facebook timeline and I had to post it. Not only because he’s a 70-year-old bodybuilder, but because he never picked up a weight until he was 44 years old in an effort to try and relieve the stress caused by his failing marriage. Twenty-six years later he is still a goddamn animal.

I also posted this because yesterday I was all down-and-out and shit about getting old. Now, after seeing Sonny’s story, I think I’ll just be like him. Seems easy enough. And the best part is I don’t need to hit the gym for like another decade and a half. Wouldn’t want to start before I’m 44 and show up Sonny. That would be disrespectful, you guys.

Here he is, almost exactly one year ago, competing in the INBF Southern Natural Bodybuilding and Figure Championships in Macon, GA. Sonny didn’t win the overall competition, but he won first place in the Men’s Open Middle Weight division. At 70 years old.
