Septuagenarian Urias McHutchinson tells young men they can look like him without steroids.
Urias McHutchinson recently the title of Over-70 National Champion at the 2018 Trinidad and Tobago Bodybuilders Federation (TTBF) Senior National Championships on September 8, 2018. The fit and muscular McHutchinson has been an inspiration for many younger men looking to get involved in bodybuilding as a lifelong health pursuit.
Following his victory at the TTBF National Championships, McHutchinson has made several guest appearances at local bodybuilding shows in the Caribbean islands of Barbados, Guyana, St Maarten and St Lucia.
McHutchinson is a big advocate of hard work and disciplined training. However, he is not a big fan of anabolic steroids.
McHutchinson says he has never used drugs. He has been on a mission to teach young people that you can build muscle and look good without the use of anabolic steroids. McHutchinson warns them that steroids “damages your insides before your time”.
“Train hard, work hard. Put your mind into it and don’t go on things that will destroy your life. Taking drugs damages your insides before your time. So it’s better you stay away from it, from steroids.”
In spite of his efforts, many young people seek out steroids as the answer. They may succeed in building an hypermuscular physique but this does not impress McHutchinson.
McHutchinson believes the muscles built with the assistance of steroids are fake. Bodybuilders who takes steroids to build big muscles just “don’t love themselves”.
“They’re forcing themselves to be like me and it took me years before I could come like that, real years and sacrifice,” McHutchinson said. “But they are taking steroids to get that way. See them walking in the road with big arms…but its not real, its false and I have to say they don’t love themselves.”
McHutchinson has been competing in bodybuilding contests on and off for over 40 years. He won his first bodybuilding title of the “Best Built Man” in 1980. Prior to the 2018 TTBF National Championships, McHutchinson last competed at the Courts Classic Trinidad in 1998.
McHutchinson is in terrific condition for a man approaching 80 years of age. It’s unfortunate that he has such a sanctimonious opinion of bodybuilders who choose to use steroids.
