WATCH: Flex Wheeler On What Went Wrong At 2017 Mr. Olympia

Flex Wheeler - Classic Physique - 2017 Olympia

Flex Wheeler won the Arnold Classic four times and was once described by Arnold Schwarzenegger as one of the greatest bodybuilders he had ever seen. He may not have won the 2017 Olympia Classic Physique but he certainly was a winner with the fans. Not only was it amazing to see the legend return in such good shape but for him to also get an honorary posing routine during the finals.

In a recent interview with Muscular Development’s Ron, Flex talks about his Classic comeback at age 52, his favorite wins, and could he have been Mr. Olympia if he’d been more serious about winning the Mr. O?

Watch the full interview below:

He didn’t use any steroids for this show and at 52, looked pretty good.

Scott Samuel im gonna be rude and say shut the fuck up with that nonsense. At 52 he HAS to use steroids to achieve that physique. Who the fuck are you kidding unless you just really wanna believe that bullshit

Alex Krstanovic

Scott Samuel you are seriously deluded if you believe that, he definitely used, just not the amounts he lived on 20 years ago & I have to agree, for his age & lack of training, he looked great, just not competition worthy

Dave Teixeira

If I’m not wrong his wife donated her kidney to him. He looks small only amongst the Olympians on stage. Trust me put him beside u and i he’ll still outsize us completely. I highly doubt he was natural for sure

Joseph Norberto
Guest

You know he did compete asll natural and tested before in a show. And he made it a point to be known. He’s gifted genetically. Just saying. He did it before and he looked amazing when he did. Look it up.

Eric Trzaska
Guest

Bullshit. Nobody tests at the Olympia

Matk Skyer

At 52, Flex needed steroids just to look like he did. He’s welcome to deny it, but please…

Alex Krstanovic
Guest

Of course he used, only the uneducated & deluded believe otherwise, dosed were no where near what he was on 20 years ago but he definitely was juicing

Ronald Candelaria
Guest

Cristi Barbu , It’s somewhat charming that you bellieve he was “steroid free”. Kinda like when your child still believes Santa comes down each family’s chimney.

Marcin Nawracaj
