A GRANDAD who works out six times a week has become an online sensation thanks to his bulging muscles.

Pensioner Bill Hendricks, 67, now has thousands of fans thanks to his shredded physique and fitness videos.


The former Marine, who lives in Dallas, Texas, posts his workout routines and poses topless as he racks up support from around the world.

Now Bill – who boasts he has been given a “physical gift” – spends at least two hours a day in the gym only allowing himself one day off from his workout.

The granddad of one used to be a male entertainer and says he enjoys keeping in shape.

Dad-of-three Bill, who turns 68 in April, said: “I started posting my workouts online around two years ago.


“I was reposted on a group for overs 40s who keep fit and all of a sudden I had thousands of people following me and interested in how I managed to look like I do.

“I thought it would be a fun opportunity to speak with people about keeping fit and to maybe tell them how I keep in shape.

“I eat the same thing every day. I have oats, omelettes, chicken and salads. I don’t drink at all really – it never really agreed with me.

“I have two breakfasts and a chicken salad and then I head to the gym around midday.

“I am there for at least two hours, sometimes three.

“I think I was given a physical gift and I don’t want to waste that.


“I have always been sporty and kept in good shape.

“I was also a male entertainer back at in the 1970s. It was all new and I auditioned and got the part.

“But I am not a personal trainer so I don’t really professional advice. I just tell people what I do as they seem interested.

“I have always eaten to stay alive. I see food as fuel. I am always trying to get my body fat down.

“I do get looks on the street and people pay me compliments. Some people are a bit envious at times but most people are supportive and like to see my progress.”
