John Meadows is an American professional bodybuilderand entrepreneur with an intriguing story. While John now boasts a successful career as an IFBB Pro bodybuilder and fitness company owner, his journey towards the top was extremely difficult.

Growing up, John never met his father, and his mother died at an extremely young age. This meant John only had his grandmother to take care of him. When his grandmother tragically passed away in 1999, John was left alone without his family to support him.

As the years went by, John continued to face new adversities in his life. During his early days in bodybuilding, John suffered from a rare colon disease. After fighting the disease for several months, his colon burst – almost resulting in his death. Luckily, John was quickly rushed to an emergency room where his life was saved. After several months of recovery, John was finally back on his feet.

Coming back into bodybuilding, John used the very obstacles that almost cost him his life as‘fuel’ to grow stronger. Ever since he recovered from the colon surgery, John has gone on to become a successful bodybuilder, entrepreneur, and inspiration for many people all over the world.

  1. I'm 46 and have ankylosing spondylitis and I'm still making gains. Not huge gains, but it is better than letting the arthritis waste me away. I look good and feel much better.

  2. I’m 55 and have been going to the gym for a about a year. Recently have been experiencing more pain in back,shoulder and legs. I’ve been feeling that the energy level after the workout is not there. Any help would be helpful

  3. People say the regular after 30 your T levels dip about 1 percent per year etc…. There not wrong but what there totally MISSING is were in the year 2022 where even 24 year old men have low T!…. Fuck thinking ahhh I'm 40 or 50 time to check my T yah no we have nothing but hormone disrupters in are food and water, outfood joints with msg you name it the pollution, round up in souls you think vegteables are totally healthy and meat these days? Fuck no! If youre 30 don't be surprised your T is at a lousy 100…. Forget the friggen after age 30 or 40 T levels dip a bit because no they sink like the fuckin death star crashed in today's world. If youre over 19 get your T levels checked that's it bottom line no questions asked it's 2022

  4. I noticed that now that I’m 38, my bench press has dropped from just a few years ago. I can’t hit 315 no more, and I used to rep out 225 for 10 reps easily, but not anymore. I struggle to get 5 reps now..

  5. I think that those who are starting their muscle building journey past the age of 40 ( who have never seriously exercised) should stick with body weight exercises only and leave the weights alone. Do push ups, body weight squats, ect…. Theyre easier on the joints and you can build just as much muscle if you really want to

  6. John's completely right. I spent years working out on and off in my 20s, 30's thru my mid 40's and never made any type of muscle gains beyond getting a bit more fit and losing some fat no matter how hard I trained. I started TRT a year ago, and gained more muscle in one year than I have ever in my life previously.
