The 2017 calendars have made way for their 2018 replacements, and you’re likely contemplating swapping out last year’s physique with an updated version—one more akin to the one you see splashed across the pages of this magazine.

And let’s be honest, if you’re looking for a standard-bearer—or an anatomy chart—on which to gauge your progress, IFBB physique pro Ryan Terry is a solid choice.

It’s been a banner year for the 29-year-old Englishman, who took first at the Arnold Classic and finished sixth in the crowded (read: competitive) Olympia Physique division. But that success seems to have only whet Terry’s appetite for bigger and better things in 2018.

“My ultimate dream is and always has been to win that Mr. Olympia title,” Terry says. “If I take that title, then I will have achieved the ultimate dream and everything I set out to in my career.”

Terry, who spent years competing as a gymnast before going the fitness model route, has flourished in a division that celebrates muscle symmetry, clean lines, and impeccable conditioning—which are worthy goals for any physique-conscious gymgoer.

On the following slides, you’ll find a collection of tips, tactics, and strategies from our stable of fitness experts that you can start putting to work for a more Terry-like physique in 2018.
