In case you did not already know it, Logan Franklin and Chris Bumstead do not exactly see eye to eye. Their rivalry recently spilled over into a back and forth on social media that saw both men hurling insults at each other.
From the moment that Franklin decided he would be moving from Men’s Physique to Classic Physique, it seemed that he had his eyes set on Bumstead. The two have gone back and forth for a while now, with Logan even going out of his way to insult Chris on social media a few months back, talking about how weak his physique was. This prompted a response from the Classic Physique Olympia champ, who defended his physique and hurled some insults back at Logan.

This beef has taken yet another turn, as Logan Franklin decided to comment under a recent physique update that Chris Bumstead uploaded to his Instagram. When he shared a pose, Logan commented on the post to share that he was not impressed, saying that Chris looks the same as he did last year. This prompted a response from Bumstead, with Open Bodybuilder Iain Valliere even jumping in to talk some trash.
“Looks same as last year 😆,” Franklin said.
“Whatever you need to tell yourself to get to sleep at night 😴,” Bumstead responded.
“Seeing no improvements definitely helps me sleep bro 💯 🙌,” Logan replied.
“(Chris) doesn’t need to improve to win Olympia’s, you need to improve to make 3rd callout 😂,” Iain Valliere chimed in.
“Don’t be projecting what you think will happen in your situation bud,” Logan replied to Iain.
“Lol oh I suck, that’s no insult to me, and still have more muscle in my pinky finger than your whole body 😂,” Valliere said.
“Bigger doesn’t always mean better my friend 😉 😘” Logan responded.
“Oh sorry I forgot tall and stringy was the ‘in’ look,” Iain clapped back.
All things considered, Chris Bumstead did not actually fire back too much at Logan Franklin in this instance, instead opting for the high road. This was the same energy that Chris had when commenting on a physique update from Logan the next day. Instead of talking trash, Bumstead actually praised Logan’s progress since making his debut at Classic Physique.
“Pretty crazy improvements from last years CP debut 👌” Bumstead said.
“Thank you champ,” replied Franklin.
It is good to see that this rivalry is pretty strictly one of a competitive nature, rather than personal. Chris Bumstead and Logan Franklin sometimes may poke fun at each other, but at the end of the day they are both excited to share the stage with one another.
