Bodybuilder Lee Labrada just showed off his ripped, powerful legs on Instagram and shared his fitness and nutrition routine, focusing on clean whole foods.

While he hasn’t officially competed in a pro bodybuilder event since 1995 (when he ranked in the Top 5 at the Arnold Classic), Labrada is still in amazing shape at the age of 60. In fact, he looks like he could oil up and take to the stage at any moment.

Labrada, who authored a book on fitness in 2005, and founded his own company, Labrada Nutrition, recently showed off his huge, vascular legs on Instagram. He also shared some insights into the current diet plan and training routine that help him stay healthy—and ripped.

“So I have fans and friends ask me, ‘Lee, what kind of shape are you in these days?’ I couldn’t resist. Not bad for 60 years old right?” He wrote. “Makes the case for muscle maturity.”

“I still train with weights almost every day, and on days that I don’t, I do cardio,” he continued. “I also eat a clean diet, but it’s not restricted calorically. Which means I’m never hungry. I eat as much as I want of clean foods: lots of fish, chicken and dairy, lots of fruits and vegetables, rice, yams and oatmeal, and I try to stick with whole foods… Nothing too fancy, just good nutrition. Consistency is the key. I follow this program pretty much every day.”
