Do you get bigger as you get older?
I know that this sort of a strange question, but I seem to be getting bigger then when I was younger. I'll try to explain the best that I can. When I was 36 and started working out, I was 207 pounds and 26 percent body fat. That put my lean body mass at 153 pounds. I was able to get down to 15 percent body fat and put on 6 pounds of LBM at that point in my life. Now at 43, when I started this time, I was measured at 215 pounds at 24 percent body fat. That give me 163 pounds of LBM and I had not even started to work out yet. I had gained an extra 4 pounds of LBM on top of the 6 that I had before with out even working out or the use of creatine. Also, my chest is at 43 inches with out doing any anything to pump it up verses the 41 inches I had when I was trying to body build. My waist is now 37 verses the 32-33 inches that it use to be. I have a few more pounds to lose, but I don't see myself ever getting down to where I was before. I am OK with that, but thought that you were suppose to shrink as you got older
I guess I was just wondering if anyone else was seeing the same thing happen to them.
