Regan Grimes is a Canadian bodybuilder who discovered his love for bodybuilding at 17 years old and hasn’t stopped training since. And maybe that’s largely due to the fact that he’s a genetic freak and was incredibly impressive at just 18 years old.
Like seriously, how many 18 year-olds looks like this?
Of course, he looks way different these days being several years older and having packed on a substantial amount of mass. But competing in bodybuilding wasn’t really his intention at first. In fact, he originally just wanted to pack on some size to compete in Motocross.
However, the results that he experienced made him want to pursue this new passion. By 18, he had entered and competed in his first bodybuilding show. And the rest was history.
Competition and Career
Regan Grimes originally began his professional career in the Men’s Open division. However, he transitioned to the Classic Physique division shortly thereafter. But he has decided to return to Open competition.
“One of the coolest moments competing for me was definitely going back up to open bodybuilding from classic and making first call-outs – Battling it out with these beasts @cedricmcmillan & @juandieselmorel at Romania Pro 2019! Standing next to these guys motivate the hell out of me to keep pushing and to become the best version of myself!“

Regan Grimes Training Regime
Grimes is currently doing a push-push-legs split as he explained in a recent video on his YouTube channel. This allows him to hit each body part twice a week of which he really enjoys. Here’s a sample pull day workout consisting of back, biceps, and rear delts training.
Grimes starts his back workouts with 3-4 sets of a light exercise using cables to warm up and get the blood flowing. He places an emphasis on the lats during his warmups and generally does 3-4 sets of 4-5 exercises.
Here’s a recent exercise sequence that he did while training at his gym…
- Reverse pulldowns
- Low row (Hammer Strength machine)
- High row (Hammer Strength machine)
- Straight-arm rope pushdown
- Rack pull
Biceps and rear delts

Here’s an example exercise sequence for his chest training to get bigger pecs. He’ll usually do a few warm-up sets and then a few heavy sets around 8-10 reps.
