is one of the greatest to ever compete in Professional bodybuilding and it was devastating to learn of his need for a right leg amputation
recently due to dealing with some health struggles
. But this unfortunate circumstance has not deterred the four-time Arnold Classic champion from bouncing back and not allowing a physical limitation like this to dictate how he lives his life.
Wheeler had his first gym session earlier this month following his surgery
although it was just enough to help his leg heal before having the prosthetic leg put on. But he’s making headway and we’ll likely see plenty of him building his strength back up to make his life much easier while using his crutches and wheelchair as he posted on Instagram to accompany his recent video.
This is what the caption read and the video is below…
“Second day in the gym training.
Second day training in the gym. First time training at this amazing club @kilo.vegas Training some tris, bis and shoulders. Trying to build up my upper body strength so I can more safely use my crutches and wheelchair. Meanwhile check out this fabulous gym @kilo.vegas @backwidow“
We wish Flex Wheeler all the best in his road to recovery and we’re sure there will be many more updates from the legend.
