American bodybuilder Breon Ansley reached the pinnacle of the Classic Physique division as a two-time Olympia champion. He’s getting ready to switch to the Men’s 212 division this season. In a recent video uploaded on YouTube, Ansley shared his full day of eating in the off-season and chooses one meal of his liking a day.
IFBB Pro competitor Breon Ansley first rose to prominence for his impressive physique in the Classic Physique class in 2016. He handily dispatched the competition at the 2016 Prestige Crystal Cup and won gold to earn an invite to the Mr. Olympia competition. He earned fourth place in his first-ever Olympia appearance.
The next year, Ansley brought a significantly improved package on the stages of the 2017 New York Pro. He won the contest and made his way to the 2017 Mr. Olympia, where he battled with reigning four-time Classic Physique Olympia king Chris Bumstead for the top prize. In the end, Ansley managed to ward off the budding Canadian sensation.
Ansley kicked off the 2018 season with a commanding victory at the Arnold Sports Festival en route to a successful title defense at Mr. Olympia. Bumstead inched closer but could not do enough to overwhelm the two-time champion. In 2019, Ansley finally got dethroned by ‘CBum’ in a close-fought battle and took silver. Bumstead held on to the title ever since.
The 43-year-old missed the mark at the 2022 Arnold Sports Festival, settling for a fourth-place finish last year. He expressed his disappointment at the result but ensured he would return stronger than ever following the show. Then, Ansley declared it would be his last run in the Classic Physique class due to the weight cap. He gave fans a look into his intense high-volume lower-body training session for building muscle weeks later.
There was a lot of speculation about whether Breon Ansley would join the Men’s 212 division. The rumors were fueled after he presented a bigger package in a guest-posing appearance at the NPC AL State Championships last September. Ansley collaborated with fitness sensation Mike O’Hearn for a sleeve-busting arms workout in preparation for the 2022 Mr. Olympia. He followed up the session with a brutal upper body workout using rest-pause training methods last October.
‘The Black Swan’ smoked a challenging legs workout in the build-up to the Olympia in December 2022. He confirmed his plans to move two the 212 category and revealed that Olympia would mark his final competition as a Classic Physique competitor days before the event.

Breon Ansley had a heartfelt conversation with Chris Bumstead following the 2022 Mr. Olympia, where he placed fourth while Bumstead secured his fourth title. They both lauded each other as Ansley passed on the torch to Bumstead, bringing a decisive end to their competitive rivalry.
Ansley is focused on adding more muscle mass to his frame now that he has a higher weight limit for competition. Fans will be excited to see him make a splash in the 212 division.
