  • This list is random as hell. In terms of fame you could have used way more famous bodybuilders lol. And then you even have people on the list…” they were big and loved the sport… they got older lost a lot of size… now they still hit the gym and have a family…”. Lol dude. What. Was. The. Point. Thanks for the unremarkable information

  • Der einzige,von denn ehemalige Olympiens noch was verkörpert, ist Frank Zane, der Arnold sieht jetzt wirklich aus wie, Arnold Topfenstrudel. LG

  • This still surprise me, how lots of people don’t know about Custokebon Secrets, despite the fact that lots of people get great result with it. Thanks to my cooworker who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I’ve lost a ton of weight with it without starving myself.

  • this is full of errors.. if you’re not into bodybuilding and follow it all. please stop yourself from making videos about it please

  • What an idiot video full of travesties. First Dorian Yates obviously won’t look like when he was 30 because he is an old man now regardless looks respectable for his age. Nothing dramatic there. It’s just the way human beings are. Victor Martinez has NEVER been a Mr. Olympia champion. Besides, I don’t see any shocking before and after images of any kind. TERRIBLE video.

  • Kilograms? Most of the US doesn’t know kilograms. Also, why did you guys show an after shot of each person losing their games. Great idea, I hope you do it again and add in the after pictures.

  • These all legendary body builders looks even more older in their 70s.. There come our fabulous actor Mammootty looks like as he is in his 30s or 40s….

  • Y qué esperaban, que fueran por siempre jóvenes? El tiempo pasa la cuenta y nadie escapa a eso. Cómo ven los actores no son ídolos, son humanos.

  • They all are still remaining young in my mind until now. I was born on 1978 and I live on a great years with them.. May Allah SWT bless them all as they bless me with a great memory, Aamiin

  • Thanks for posting a great tribute to some of my heroes when I was growing up. They still remained inspirational in their old age and proof that just because you’re old you doesn’t mean you can’t stay in shape.

  • For those who said they wished the Artist’s names were listed in the video.
    0:05 Billy Ocean.
    0:36 Kim Wilde.
    1:07 Bon Jovi.
    1:42 Blondie.
    2:24 Bonnie Tyler.
    2:56 Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.
    3:28 Boy George, the band “Culture Club”.

    4:42 Elton John.
    5:11 Annie Lennox, the band “Eurythmics”.
    5:54 Joe Cocker.
    6:35 Tiffany.

    7:52 No idea who that is.
    8:37 Belinda Carlisle.
    9:17 Lionel Richie.
    9:58 Michael Jackson.

  • These body builders are the ultimate narcissists. What fools, to work for years just so they can stare at themselves.None of them made their gains naturally.

  • Psalms:6:1: O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

    Psalms:6:2: Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

    Psalms:6:3: My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?

    Psalms:6:4: Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake

  • 4:39 i think once you get old and you get to a certain age you are probably best to stop working out and just pose the muscles, stop while you have somthing left like at age 60 or less otherwise youll burn down you muscle as usual but it wont grow back any bigger or better

  • this video only shows how that roids users are useless in their present ages..they just cheats to look good before..and its bullshit..they cannot be called a legend bodybuilders but a lazy giants..haist..

  • Péter Molnár who is on the index picture is still participating in competitions and he is not the guy on the “after” picture, he is still big and muscular why did you put him on the index picture bro?

  • Why bother showing then and now? Why you curious? Why are you idolizing them? Dah they get older and have achieved what they wanted or not so f…..what. you trollen following youtuber are pathetic as a human being.

  • That’s coming for all the fellas, who’s asked for the background music as guitar instrumental track. Name of the artist is Ethan Meixsell. Enjoy! ->

  • Makes me sad watching this especially Arnold cause he will never look the way he used to buf he’s still working out and everyone in the video looks so much smaller but still fit but will never look like they once did

  • Body Builders looked great back then.They had brains enough to cycle on and off and they seemed to know what looked good. Today they all look like they are pregnant because of so much internal organ growth from non stop drugs 365 days a year.They look terrible but don’t seem to have any clue as to how bad their physiques actually look.

  • So, what did you expect? 30 years is 30 years. No one looks the same with 25 and 55 (except me). On top of that, you put old promotional studio photos next to lousy flash photography. What is the point?

  • OK. Ajánlom az 50 Action Stars. 2019. Part 1. 2019-es USA./American. YouTube Videót a YouTube Csatornán. USA-America-American-Americana. Lajos Tóth./Tóth Lajos. YouTube.

  • Back in the day, these guys were all low carb guys. We call it Ketosis now, they called it cutting back then. No one looks like this now, they all look like mutant freaks using all those steroids and crazy supplements. At 70+ these guys are still killing it.

  • What exactly is Custokebon Secrets? How does this thing really work? I notice many people keep on speaking about this popular fat burn diet plan.

  • When considering eating healthy, you must try not to fall victim to modern day fad diets. Extreme diets are a threat for your health, especially ones that seriously limit your everyday nutritional intake. While they might induce rapid loss of weight, these diet plans are never a long-term solution for your waistline. It is best to check out Custokebon Secrets on google since it isn’t just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  • Денис Воробьев ютуб он реально монстр. Бьет реально и ломает все. Но натурально качаеться и дома, ему откаты не страшны. Спасибо за музон очень приятно

  • People keep track of these transformations… but as these stars are so celebrated and iconic… we never hear them brag or discuss the physique maintenance… such humility in these big larger than life stars. Amazing ����❤️ (人们一直在跟踪这些变化……但是,由于这些恒星是如此著名和具有标志性……我们从来没有听到过他们吹牛或谈论体质维持……在这些比生命恒星更大的大恒星中如此谦卑。 惊人的️❤️)

  • Its a sport…They lift heavy and hard for their exceptional elite physiques. They are scored. They do steroids but so do ALL the major sports players. Again, its not a contact sport but if these are considered sports, then Bodybuilding truly is:
    *Bass Fishing
    *Curling (Olympics)
    *Skeet Shooting
    *Shooting (Olympics)
    *Gymnastics Twirling Ribbon (Olympics)
    *Equestrian (Olympics) horse does all the work
    *Professional “Cornholing”
    *Professional “Log Cutting”
    **Plenty more worthless, NON-athletic sports.

    I have been dealing with this source for 3 years and never had any problems with my package. I did my y first cycle from this source and that’s how I got my body transformation he even provides good diet and workout plans.

  • Gibson is aged and changed a lot but is still very cool, just in a different way. So much better then those plastic freaks like rourke or that disgusting steven seagal fat ass

  • Как говорится, все пороки написаны на лице, некоторых. А кто не привратился в свинью, кто не бухал, не обжирался, не сидел на наркоте, пореже заглядывал в чью-то бездну помеж ног те остались красавчиками.

  • Girls when you Marry that Hot guy and have a kid and your child comes out a Nerd.. Well now you know why,… He’s a FUGAZY.. all steroids and really a Nerd on juice.. once they stop taking it you see what they really are NOT A PRINCE JUST A FROG..

  • What is the best product or brand to lost crazy amounts of fat? I read a lot of great reviews on the net about how Custokebon Secrets can help you lost crazy amounts of fat. Has anyone tried this popular fat burn secrets?

  • I had SUCH a crush on Stevie Nicks back in the day (Gloria Estefan too) and who could forget Sam Fox… Ok, OK! I was in my 20’s in the 80’s and probably fancied almost any female in the charts and wasnt sure about Boy George, he LOOKED like a pretty girly, well maybe after a few beers

  • Some of these people aged gracefully, without going crazy with surgery or whatever. Folks like Olivia Newton-John, Paul McCartney, Ray Parker Jr., Peter Gabriel, and Pat Benatar. Good for them.

  • You know when you’re getting older, when you read comments saying “add names” and realising you don’t need the names because you grew up with pretty much all these classics!!

  • In my opinion Sergio Oliva was the GOAT. He seems more balanced than Arnold, top to bottom. Arnold is a little top heavy. But Arnold is my second pick.

  • Seeing any pictures of Sir Paul always gives me goosebumps he’s gorgeous and has something about him that’s eternal and youthful he’s definitely growing old very gracious Bless him and I hope he keeps himself looked and God keeps a careful eye on him after I would hate for the world to loose him here’s sending him some love and prayers ����������������������✝️����������������

  • You’re discouraging people from pursuing this lifestyle…. these guys take it way to far. I do gear as a lifestyle choice and lifestyle type protocols. Im also 36 and everyone knows after 35 the test starts dropping like a hot potato. I never want to be where I can’t walk or move around so I decided to take on this lifestyle. I am in good shape and eat well. Feel like a million bucks. If anyone is interested in learning how to do anabolics safely, please hit me up or send me an email.

  • I met Tom plats in his Body Building prime, just fucken incredible. Then when he stopped like 10 or 15 yrs later, I saw him and asked with respect!! What happened???? I will never forget what he said,” time, and nothin last forever. Just glad with all the steroid use,im still alive ” cried when I left. ��

  • É a vida todo mundo que viver até a terceira idade vai passar por isso, tempo de nascer infância, juventude, é velhice, de graças a Deus pois a vida continua.

  • So much false information. Dorian is still huge and very strong. How did Victor Martinez ‘reconsider his priorities’? Do you just say any old shit for views?

  • This is precisely the story of my life. Except that I was never a pro body builder, and I never was huge or bad ass. And I don’t get hot chicks, and nobody knows who I am. But, I am a lard ass and that pretty much makes me and these guys brothers.

  • racist’s daughter: “Dad, I want to introduce you to my new boyfriend..”

    racist in his wife’s ear: “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, burn all my Hitler posters now!!”

  • Damn, Billy Ocean can sing!
    I think Jon Bon Jovi sounds okay, just not as powerful as he used to.
    Bonnie Tyler I am just not sure she was singing live in the “now” track. What do you all think?
    Springsteen rocks on.
    As much as I love Elton John (and I do love) he sounds like a screeching cat at this point (to my ears at least).
    Annie Lennox…damn Lady! You still got it!
    Joe Cocker, you are missed. I always loved his voice and I cried the day I learned of his death.
    George Michael’s impersonator…nice try:-)
    Lionel Ritchie, well what is there to say? Smooth as silk then and now.
    Michael Jackson still had it, vocally speaking…

  • I love chris cormer n paul dallito who really give up his career sorry for mistake for words but these two bodybuilders are my best love paul n chris ❤️♥️❤️♥️♥️������respect

  • I don’t like that You guys Too fast with videos,because it’s not easy 2 read the Info down below(on the screen,obviusly). I wish you’ll think about it!

  • Habiendo crecido en los 80, me encantó ver el antes y el después. Ver a cantantes que han madurado con dignidad y elegancia (Billy Ocean; Bon Jovi; Bonnie Tyler; Joe Cocker, QEPD y me impactó su misma voz de siempre, la misma de joven y viejo; y Belinda Carlisle). Estoy de acuerdo, ese no era George Michael. Los demás dignos representantes de la chavorrucada (Blondie, Bruce Springsteen, Boy George, Cindy Lauper, Elton John, Annie Lennox, Tiffany, Golden Earring, Lionel Richie y Michael Jackson QEPD).

  • The majority are now adult diaper wearing prune balls.. Danny Trejoi is one of of the rare few where it actually works for him to get older i mean like the rest? At what point does a family member yet Eastwood walk around with that Granny’s hat without saying something?

  • Rest in peace, Rutger Hauer! “All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.” Rutger Hauer (he improvised the line on set)

  • Michey I LOVE YOU EVERRRR…I DONT SPEAK VERY WELL I’m italian girl But…I think You are The Best I love more And more…I LOVE YOUR EYES……I LOVE YOUR SMILE AND YOUR FRAGILITY…..

  • You made MANY mistakes. How are you going to assume everybody knows everybody by sight that you’re showcasing? I stopped at the third singer. Like, who is that? and that? and that? Never mind. Next video, please. Goodbye.

  • Jurassic Park movie, take a look to the horrible things “cortisol” does to your body from age 21 onwards…
    You better start to drink probiotics, prebiotics and a lot of vegetables, fruits and water everyday, greetings from Virginia, The United States of America.

  • Pretty sad that after going through such a strict lifestyle of total dedication these ‘ultimate sportmen’ have only past images to look back on an empty shell of mostly successful careers. Hell, Mike Tyson has now achieved an admirable physique AND has learned useful sporting skills for evermore.

  • Most of them are my father’s age. And I am really proud and glad that they are part of my childhood days. Still I enjoy thier works. Everyone of them are true legend. And legends always lives in the memory of thier fans.

  • OK, guys, you have to STOP saying that this isn’t George Micheal. He’s an inspiration to George and you don’t have to say he dosent look like him.

  • Arnold and Frank Zane have 2 of the greatest bodies of all time in bodybuilding. I think because both have very long arms and lines with a small waist to shoulder ratio.

  • the thumbnail though…apparently when you stop bodybuilding your muscles fade to a point where you’re scrawny, your skin even loses color…

  • Some of these stars are today 2020 May, are decades younger than I,but they look decades older than I do!! Must be a tough life trying not to age and hanging on to their youth lol!!

  • If you’re popular because of your looks in your youth, it must feel great at the time, but it must be really awful later. All of us watching are old enough to remember the glorious days of our youth (or that’s how our minds play tricks on us anyway). We all look like crap now compared to 35 years ago. Hopefully looks were not a major part of our identity.

  • Some of these people really messed up their natural good looks with too much plastic surgery! And some don’t look like they’ve aged much at all.

  • Seriously, what the F*#%k
    Pay some respect to the great and dearly departed iconic superstar George Michael
    What you could find any footage???
    Disappointed from big fan from Australia ����
