The 2020 Arnold Classic
Ohio is inching closer and the top competitors are making their final adjustments during these remaining weeks. Well, there there are going to be some tanks on stage this year including Big Ramy
who fans are excited to see again, plus former Arnold Classic champs William Bonac
, Dexter Jackson
, Cedric Mcmillan, and Victor Martinez, as well as a few up and comers like Patrick Moore
and Sergio Oliva Jr
But the one competitor in particular that we had to take notice of is Sergio Oliva Jr. who certainly hasn’t had it easy after experiencing some unfortunate circumstances
last year. But the son of the legendary 3x Mr. Olympia (‘The Myth’ Sergio Oliva) appears to be making a big comeback and while we won’t try and predict his placing, there are some crazy training videos of him recently where it’s quite apparent he’s looking to do some damage in March.
Oliva Jr. placed 16th at the 2018 Mr. Olympia competition and we haven’t seen much of him after that but things are looking up for his competitive endeavors and Arnold Classic will be a real test for not only him but the other competitors.
Check out his training videos below which really show how determined he is this year.

“The @titan_grips Back Finisher. A good last exercise for back day is to do pull ups with @titan_grips attached. They take your biceps out of the movement so you can just finish off those lats.”
Here’s what appears to be a pretty agonizing set on the leg press with coach Chris Cormier.
We’re definitely excited to see what the 2020 Arnold Classic brings as there will be many top-notch competitors vying for the top spot. Sergio Oliva Jr. surely has a great chance at placing near the top but like we said, it’ll be hard to predict at this point.
But like always, we’ll keep you updated with the latest news related to the event.
