I've met several bodybuilders that say they don't lift heavy now, like Victor Costa. When you dig deeper you found he gained his muscle by lifting (relatively) heavy, and then backed off the weight slightly with age.

There are also many older naturals (50+) that compete without a substantial amount of muscle. I understand and respect why they choose to train lighter, but I'm guessing they are still challenging themselves in the gym to some degree.
