    Francis Benfatto 55 years old

    He looks fantastic! I skipped the interview. He starts posing near the end of the video.

    http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?feature...&v=MxB0bKiECdM

    Cant' seem to post the direct video... some quick time BS..... Anyway it's worth a look.

    Found one without the shitty interview.

    Always had great aesthetic physique. Was my model of the ideal physique when he was competing in Olympias in the late 80's and early 90s.

    At 55 he's training around injuries and pain you won't know until you live it.

    He's 55 still spanking ALL you 30 somethings.

    I really like the classic look of Francis, Fran Zane & Bob Paris to name a few. No doubt he probably has knee/hip issues that may limit leg training at 55. I know I do at 43.

    I stopped paying attention to the BB seen around the time Dorian began his Mr O streak. He was a big ****er & today's Mr O competitors make him look small. Crazy shit
