Rising Men’s Open star Michal Krizo appears to be taking to the stage soon. In a recent Instagram stories post, Krizo shocked fans with a ripped physique update and teased a return in eight weeks.
Slovakian mass monster Krizo stole headlines on a consistent basis last year. He switched to the NPC from the IFBB Elite Pro League, then earned his pro card in short order after dominating the 2022 Amateur Olympia Italy. Having claimed victory at the EVLS Prague Pro next, Krizo guaranteed his passage to Mr. Olympia, where he embraced the opportunity with a 12th-place finish in his debut.
Krizo has ambitious plans for the 2023 season and the community has taken notice. Figureheads of the sport such as former Mr. Olympia Samir Bannout have urged Krizo to refine his posing skills. To shore up any stage nerves or weaknesses, Krizo guest posed at 300 pounds during the off-season a few weeks ago.
Aside from posing, the 32-year-old has been following a rigorous training schedule. He offered a glimpse into his bulking leg workout recently, where at the time, admitted his next competition would be the 2023 Arnold Classic UK (AKA: Experience With Sports Festival UK) in September. Fortunately for his fans, it looks like he’s changed his mind and teased his next show in less than two months.

Given the time frame revealed by Krizo, fans expect his next contest appearance to come at the 2023 Empro Classic Pro Spain on June 18.
Check out his physique update below:
Krizo showed off his fullness and vascularity in a separate IG stories post.
Previously, Krizo laid out some of his goals for the current season. Reacting to his 12th-place performance at Olympia, Krizo said he was unhappy with his conditioning levels. He explained that his body felt ‘tired’ in December after peaking multiple times last year.
With time to accept the outcome of 2022 Olympia, Krizo hasn’t been shy about discussing his opposition. During last year’s contest, Krizo argued that the beautiful structure of Brandon Curry was overlooked. In fact, Krizo stated that Curry had the best upper body of the entire show and said he ‘deserved’ to place higher than fourth.
Krizo has also shared rivalries with a number of Open class stars like Nick Walker, Blessing Awodibu, and Iain Valliere. After Olympia, he buried the hatchet with all of them and placed ahead of Awodibu, who defeated Krizo at an amateur bodybuilding contest back in 2017.
