Biography of Andrew Jacked
Largely due to his social media following, Andrew Jacked is a growing name in the bodybuilding world. Grossing over 500 thousand followers on Instagram alone, many people enjoy seeing the continued progress Andrew makes each year. Andrew had spent a decade working up the physique that he realized would be strong for competing, and his size and lean composition has certainly grown his fan base.
Despite scrolling through all of his social media, not much is known about Andrew Jacked. It was speculated that he was born in 1985 in Nigeria. However, he currently lives in Dubai, UAE, to which he migrated to due to personal issues. Aside from that, he keeps a lot of his personal and family life out of media reach.
Some things about Andrew Jacked are that he is a former kickboxer, electrical engineer, military officer, and CrossFit athlete. Now, he has IFBB pro status and recently competed at the 2022 Olympia, the biggest stage in bodybuilding.
Andrew Jacked’s Competition History
Andrew Jacked competed in the first-ever EBBF Ajmaan Bodybuilding and Physique Contest in the UAE. This mega event took place in April 2021 in the United Arab Emirates and was reported to have approximately 200 competitors participating.
Andrew won this competition, meaning he earned his IFFB Elite pro card at the event. This pushed him from amateur to pro in just a single show. Andrew also competed in, and won, the Arnold Classic Amateur. However, it was not until August 2022 that Andrew Jacked qualified for the 2022 Mr. Olympia contest.
It was August 14, 2022 that Andrew Jacked competed in and won the Texas Pro bodybuilding competition, qualifying him for the Mr. Olympia contest. With the 2022 Mr. Olympia just a few months away, Andrew wasted no time to get right back to his workouts and diet after his win in Texas.
Andrew Jacked’s training is nothing short of impressive. His workouts seem to consist of isolating each muscle group. For example, we’ve seen Andrew training back alone, chest and triceps together, shoulders and biceps, then legs.
His training consists of relatively high volume. However, do not be mistaken, Andrew moves some serious weight. How else would you expect him to maintain the size and shreds his does? Let’s take a look at an example of Andrew Jacked’s workouts.
Chest and Triceps
Andrew’s set ranges on a day like this are relatively low, however the rep ranges on the other hand are higher. He makes sure to get the most out of each repetition, squeezing the muscle, and he’s moving some pretty heavy weight on the exercises.
Incline Dumbbell Bench Press — 1st set for 20 reps 2nd set for 10 reps
Hammer Strength Chest Press — 3 sets for 10-15 reps
Seated Pec Fly Machine — 2 sets for 15-20 reps
Dumbbell Inside Chest Press/Hex Press — 3 sets for 15 reps
Cable Triceps Pushdown — 2 sets for 21 reps
Cable Overhead Triceps Extension — 1 set for 15 reps
EZ Bar skull Crusher — 1 set for 15 reps
Nutrition of Andrew Jacked
Ahead of the 2022 Olympia, Andrew Jacked opened up about his sensitivities and high level of allergies to different foods. Let’s take a look at some things Andrew has said that he eats in his meal preps during the off-season.
1st Meal: 50-70g oats, 10 eggs (six whites, four full)
Meal 2,3,4,5,6: Andrew buys a whole chicken, then cuts it up and weights it out into about 200 grams of chicken each meal, mixed with about 100 grams of rice or broccoli. It is a very interesting method, as he is not sticking strictly to the chicken breast like a lot of other bodybuilders. He gets a good variety of chicken in these meals, as we all know strictly chicken breast can get old after awhile.
