QUESTION

What was the biggest lesson you learned after your first Mr. Olympia?

ANSWER

I was happy with the way everything played out, so I have no complaints as far as what I could have done differently. If you give your all during your entire prep, that’s all anyone can ask.

QUESTION

Is the Olympia really that much bigger than any other pro contest or is it hype?

ANSWER

Yes, it really is! I went to the Olympia two years in a row before I stood onstage, so I knew the scope of the contest. That prepared me, so I wasn’t totally overwhelmed. Also, several of my friends have competed in the O, so I knew what to expect.

QUESTION

What areas are you trying to improve? 

ANSWER

I want to keep improving from head to toe. Realistically, you can’t make those kinds of improvements with several years of training under your belt. So I prioritize individual body parts or specific areas. I worked hard the past couple of years to bring up my legs to match my upper body. Now I want to keep improving while maintaining my small waist. - FLEX
