When professional athletes finally decide to retire from their respective sports, they normally tend to kick back and indulge in the finer things in life.
It often means their once-chiselled physics vanish into thin air as they transition into "regular" life like the rest of us.
But not every sports star looses their finely-tuned body after calling time on their career – just ask former baseball star Kyle Farnsworth.
The ex-MLB pitcher has a new-found love for bodybuilding and whatever he's doing in the gym is clearly working because he's absolutely shredded.
Oh, and he's 46 years of age too – mental.
Very rare gym bathroom selfie. 4 days out to my first body building competition. Classic Physique. These past few days have been fun with no carbs! #classicphysique #bodybuilding #pitcherswholift #npc #southernnational #hardwork #tats #sheruclassic pic.twitter.com/TS1fcdzTC4— Kyle Farnsworth (@24_7Farnsworth) June 21, 2022
Farnsworth, who spent 16 seasons in the MLB, enjoying stints with the Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Atlanta Braves, New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, Atlanta Braves, Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets, Houston Astros.
Yes, the big man was shipped across plenty of teams in a career spanning from the late 1990s all the way to 2014.
But since hanging up the glove (if that's the equivalent of hanging up the boots), Farnsworth has become a jacked gym junkie, recently revealing his impressive physique.

"Very rare gym bathroom selfie," he tweeted.
"4 days out to my first bodybuilding competition. Classic Physique. These past few days have been fun with no carbs!"
Farnsworth will actually be competing in his first bodybuilding competition this weekend.
"4 weeks out to my first body building competition here in Orlando. The NPC Southern USA National Qualifier," he said in an Instagram post back in May.
"Very excited to be apart of the Sheri Classic and to see what I can do. I will be competing in the novice Classic Physique class.
"I have always wanted to do one and it’s never to old to start. When you are a competitor you have to find things to compete in."
Farnsworth made an estimated $40 million from his 19-year stint in Major League Baseball.
His old medical reports say he weighed around 104kg during the tail end of his career – but by the looks of things, he's tipping the scales at far more now.
What a unit!
