Is It Too Late For Me To Try To Make It To Pro??
Hi guys, well i've been working out for a couple of years, I'll be 24yrs old in December. I'm 5'9 and weigh 205lbs, I want to go pro, I want to make my passion int o a career. Do you think I can still do it? Or am I to old to have this type of dream?

I'd say if your busting your ass and have true dedication I don't see why not. I know I haven't seen a pic of you yet but even at just turning 24 that's still young so you have plent of time to still develop your body the way you would like it so good luck on your dreams bro.

Click like you are writing a post, then write whatever you want to say about the pic in there, and then scroll down, and you will see "manage attachments" click on that, and then click "browse" then select the file with your pic and click "upload" then post your post. Simple as that

A real factor is if you can afford all the drugs. Your not too old though, Don Youngblood didn't turn pro until his 40's.

MOS... genetics...and fully capitalising on them (i.e. busting your ass; being anal about your diet/supplementation etc.) is the determining factor.
24's not too old.
Get your feet wet competitively.
Get a coach.
Get someone to look at you...and assess you.

I agree with Narkissos...
If you're asking how to make contact - Find some bodybuilding competitions in your area and go to a local show - see if you think it's what you want to do or not. (Some guys get hooked as soon as they see their first show)
If you're feeling good about it, find out where these guys work out and join.
If you're not stalking them and you seem serious in what you are doing, they will help if you ask them.
But do your research! Don't start asking stupid questions or questions about gear or how much weight they can do on this exercise or that exercise.
Diet, cardio, finding a trainer - these are a few question areas that show you're really interested.
And they'll also sense how serious you are by the way they see you work out.

Just saw the pics - good base my man!
And you are def not too old.

You definately have potential. I would say it is possible, but jhust like with anyone else, it woudl take a lot of work, dedication, consistency etc etc. But if your mind is right, i think you could. i dont see a reason why you couldnt. You look good

Thanks guys, iam definetely serious........i love this with a passion and i've been working out since i was thirteen and i played hockey. They told me about a gym in my area, i live in manhattan.........where some serious bodybuilders go, for example Victor Martinez. So im gonna sign up there, i'd like that atmosphere alot more than where i go now, most of the people in my gym are just health nuts, not into bodybuilding.

Nark, I agree with you. I didn't say that drugs were THE factor, I said they were a factor.

This question is often ask by young body builders. I agree with the guys saying get started and hit some shows. Learn what itis like to compete. Learn how nutrition will help you grow with training, supplements and sleep. I say one of the biggest factors is your body structure. Some guys are built for this sport more then others. You need to go to shows and see how the ripped body looks. Look at the guys shape, length of limbs, length or torso, legs compared to upper body. So many factor make a good base to build on. Then you must look at yourself and be honest with what you see. Yes you can add muscle. No, you can not change joint length, upper and lower body balance.
If you have the right body shape and structure a you can go far in the sport.
That being said go to a few national level shows and look at the beef. I know you might think 5'9" is not that tall. Well it is. That's why Mikexxl said you would have to be in the ripped shape at 230 to 240# Did you ever see yourself as a ripped up super weight?
I did the North Americans this year. The light heavy and heavy class was full of stacked guys going 5'5" 5' 6" They look HUGE. I'm 5'6" and am a middle weight. The guys I was competing with were 5'4" and 5'3".
It's all in the judges hands get out there and see how you stack up.
