Physique Update

Andrew Jacked Began Lifting With Larry Wheels Early On

Andrew Jacked had bodybuilding aspirations for years and clearly had the physique to impress on stage. He encountered Wheels at the gym and he was the one who guided Jacked on how to build his brand, especially on social media.

Jacked reflected on how the two got together and began crushing workouts.

“I was training with a friend of mine, a client of mine, at one of his friend’s gym and I saw Larry Wheels there doing a video. I didn’t know him because I didn’t know who was popular on social media. As a guy who sees another guy, we did the eye stuff, and he’s like okay cool.

So, I think the next day I was about to train the guys, it’s 8 A.M. In the parking lot, Larry just got out of his car, and I got out of my car and we connected.”

Larry Wheels could not believe that Andrew Jacked was not on Instagram at this point and the two created the account together. Wheels was the one who came up with the name Andrew Jacked.

“From first sight, we connected. We went straight to his hotel room. Thinking about the Instagram name, I told him, ‘hey man, I don’t have any idea what to say.’ I was bringing up all my names, and the assistant said, ‘Andrew Jacked is good. You just Andrew Jacked.’”
