Video: Mike Hamilton, 55 Years Young
Mike Hamilton, who is 55, has been involved in weight training for the past 11 years with the guidance of his friend and personal trainer, IFBB Pro Jake Salsbury. Together, they have entered four bodybuilding competitions since 2010. Mike is pleased with the growth he has experienced as a bodybuilder, and as a person. Most recently Mike took first place in Master’s Bodybuilding Class Over 50 and third place in the Master’s Over 45 Class in Classic Physique at the NPC Texas Legends Championships in August of 2016.
Mike was not overweight when he started training but actually very much under-weight at about 150 pounds. According to Mike when he was training on his own he neglected to properly “feed the machine”. Since then he has learned there is an absolute balance between the gym and the kitchen, and both are vital parts of being successful.
