Bodybuilding legend Lee Labrada shows off his shredded quads at 62

Lee Labrada brought a unique blend of grace and aesthetics to the bodybuilding stage that helped him win 22 professional titles during the 80s and 90s. And he accomplished all of this despite a typical weight of around 185 books at the time of the show. To put that into perspective, he was competing against the likes of eight-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney, who tipped the scales at 250 pounds at one point.

And although he hung up his pose suits in 1995, Labrada maintains a strong presence in the fitness industry today. He is currently CEO of sports nutrition company Labrada Nutrition – maker of Lean Body protein – and his son, Hunter Labrada, is claiming his strong position on the Olympia stage.

Oh, and it turns out that Lee Labrada is still in phenomenal shape at the age of 62, as he showed in a recent Instagram post:

The video shows Labrada’s shredded quads as he knocks out a set of leg extensions. He looks fit for an athlete in his prime, so it’s even more impressive that he’s maintained his height nearly 30 years after stepping away from the sport.

And if you want an even closer look at these twitching and throbbing 62-year-old kids, Labrada is happy to oblige:

Lee Labrada’s Bodybuilding Career

Although Labrada has never won a Mr. Olympia title, he competed in the big show seven times from 1987 to 1993, placing in the top four each year. The Sandow may have eluded him, but Labrada achieved a career highlight in 1985 when he won the Mr. Universe competition.

Labrada retired from the sport in 1995, with his final show at the Arnold Classic that year.

Today, Labrada stays involved in bodybuilding by sharing workout tips and posing tutorials with athletes like Terrence Ruffin on the Labrada Nutrition YouTube page. He will also occasionally post videos of himself training with Hunter, who finished fourth in last year’s Olympia competition and is currently preparing to take the stage in his third Mr. O from December 16-18. in Las Vegas, NV.
