Retired legend Dexter Jackson is one of the most successful bodybuilders to ever grace the stage, so it’s safe to say he has a handle on exercises geared at improving physiques. Recently, Jackson took to social media and demonstrated solid form while hitting weights in the practice room.
Dexter Jackson put the world on notice many times with his aesthetically pleasing physique. During his reign of destruction, the bodybuilding legend amassed countless titles including a record 5, 1st place performances at the famed Arnold Classic (2005, 2006, 2008, 2013, 2015). There are few obstacles “The Blade” hasn’t toppled, as he also earned the grand prize at Mr. Olympia in 2008 as well.
Despite getting older, Jackson is still putting solid work in while practicing in the weight room. The longevity of Jackson is a rare and welcoming concept as the sport has witnessed far too many deaths in the industry this past year. At 51-years-old Jackson has utilized hormone replacement therapy and maintains that it has helped significantly with health after retirement.
