Jean Titus, a 50-year-old fitness consultant from Washington DC, has a body that would be enviable even to men half his age.
Titus trains for an hour and a half, five days per week, and eats an impressive 3,400 calories per day in order to maintain his Adonis-like frame.
‘Before I got into fitness, I was a skinny kid,’ Jean recalls. ‘Looking back, I feel that I wasn’t as strong and that I had not tapped into my true physical potential. I started to really get into weights over 30 years ago now during college and never looked back.
‘Weight-lifting was a part of the strength and conditioning training program for college athletes, of which I was one.’
Jean, who has a 48-inch chest and 18-inch biceps, said his record lifts are 180kg (400lbs) for bench press, 200kg (440lbs) deadlift, and 210 (460lbs) squat.
He said he doesn’t ‘ego lift’ in the same way bodybuilders do, instead, he trains for performance and conditioning.
‘Nutrition is also really important to me,’ he added. ‘On a typical day, I’ll consume four to five meals and on average 3,400 calories a day.’
Jean said the reaction he gets to his physique from members of the public is positive.
‘People are amazed by my physical abilities, due to my age,’ he said. ‘On a daily basis, I have several people approach me asking about my workout routine and diet, and complimenting my physique.
‘My advice for anyone looking to get into fitness would be to focus on the daily tasks, fall in love with the process and most importantly, be consistent.
‘You are your only competition, make an effort every day to beat yesterday’s output and with that mindset, in time you will achieve your goals.’
