Now 54 years old, his six-pack still appears as rock hard as ever.

With his nickname “the muscle machine”, he’s previously shared insight into his commitment to the gym.

Helmut once revealed he began working out as a way to protect himself from bullies who picked on him when he was a “skinny weakling”.

He told Simply Shredded: “I liked weightlifting from the start. My first pair of weights was five kilos a piece.

“This was two bottles of washing detergent, filled with water though. I did not have proper dumbbells until a few years later.”

At age 16, he began going to a gym and began focusing on the idea of becoming a fitness model.

He had high aspirations from the outset and dedicated his time to cutting weight and gaining muscle.

Helmut said: “What truly motivates me is my mission to serve as a graphic example of achieving ideals—ultimate fitness dreams and more.”

He says he’s dedicated to not only enhancing his own body but helping others through personal training.

The best way he’s been able to achieve results is by training five or six days a week and focusing on each of his major muscle groups.

Helmut explained: “There is for me too the simple fact that training can feel so good.

“I mean incredibly good, when the mood and energy are right.”
