That is a good part of why he lived to 91

I used to be a body builder as well.
I peaked at 39-40 and quit mostly because I was so muscle bound that it slowed me down.
At that point the only thing I could do better was bicycling because it carried the weight.
Forget trying to run with Pop-eye arms.
Then I had a huge setback at 60.
Both shoulders had bone spurs and torn rotator cups, back completely out and a hernia.
That December I got Bronchitis so bad I could not climb a hill.
Actually was convinced that I was dying, but after the operations I have been getting stronger since.

I still do landscaping or work in my Nursery and can outwork anyone I know over an 8 hour day.

We only do a photo shoot about twice per month now instead of twice per week,
so maybe I should work out more with dumb bells?
