Nevertheless, this change became evident when it was confirmed that he would not only be competing in the Open, but he was granted an invitation to the 2020 Mr. Olympia.
Obviously, if he wishes to be successful in this move to a new division, Flex Lewis needs to do some bulking up. Subsequently, he has been spending a ton of his time off working on this growth. Moreover, fans got a firsthand look at how much work he has been doing in the gym, with some recent training videos.
