Ahmad Ashkanani proved he’s a force to be reckoned with.

The Arnold Sports Festival offered up some pretty memorable moments this year. While the 212 division may not have been the main event of the show it did offer up an interesting scenario as we move further in 2017. While James ‘Flex’ Lewis may not have been competing at the Arnolds, we got to see the field of talented individuals who have the chance of challenging him at the Olympia. For years Flex Lewis has been the most dominant force in the 212 division. It’s as if there was no chance that no one would arise to challenge the reigning champion. But with Ahmad Ashkanani’s win at the Arnold Classic it’s evident that Flex Lewis may have a tough test ahead of him.

The Kuwait native with tons of potential, Ahmad Ashkanani has an incredible physical form that he was able to utilize considerably well at the Arnold Classic. The muscle definition as well as his presentation were both spot on and it’s already raising questions about his future. Ahmad Ashkanani is just getting started in his bodybuilding career and already it seems that he’s cultivated a physique on par with the very best in the world.

While some people doubt that Ahmad Ashkanani has no chance to challenge Flex Lewis, the below post begs to differ as the Kuwait powerhouse showcased just how formidable he can be.
