Breon Ansley has stayed in Classic Physique and has put on extra muscle for the 2023 Olympia!

Breon Ansley has put together a great career in Classic Physique and will remain in the division for the 2023 Olympia. After announcing a move to Men’s 212, Ansley reconsidered following an announcement from the IFBB that allows competitors to add weight. Ansley recently shared a physique update with an extra seven pounds of muscle.

The IFBB announced that Classic Physique will increase its weight limits. This will happen by 2-7 pounds for competitors from their allotted weight, which might not seem like a lot but 2-7 pounds of lean muscle mass is a lot of weight. The change was made to help shorter competitors try to even the playing field against taller athletes.

Ansley began his amateur career in 2012 and quickly earned his Pro Card the very next year by winning the NPC USA Championships. He quickly rose to the top of Classic Physique, competing at the Mr. Olympia and winning his first Olympia at the 2017 Olympia. Ansley continued to improve as he won both the 2018 Arnold Classic and the 2018 Olympia.

Breon Ansley Physique Update

Breon Ansley decided to stay in Classic Physique once the IFBB changed its weight restrictions because he believes that an extra seven pounds will give him a better look on stage. By the looks of his physique update, Ansley might be right.

“My Muscle Costume!???? had to hit the stomping grounds before off to Orlando tomorrow to let these damn games begin ⭕️ Happy ????”

In a YouTube video, Breon Ansley showed off some poses and discussed how the extra weight helped improve his physique. Ansley showed off his improved conditioning when posing, reached by a combination of cardio and resistance training.

Ansley was able to hold his vacuum pose for 25-30 seconds and hit three rounds of posing with each reaching five seconds. The vacuum shows a smaller waist, and demonstrates excellent core control, something the judges look for in the Classic division.

“The body changing as we’re going. Deeper cuts, lines, more separation, more density, more roundedness, and pop.”

In September, Ansley discussed the change in weight restrictions when announcing his return to Classic Physique.

“I THINK I AM ONE OF THE MOST MUSCULAR GUYS. THE MOST OR ONE OF THE MOST MUSCLE-BOUND PHYSIQUES UP THERE. SO, I REALLY THINK I CAN CAPITALIZE ON THE AMOUNT OF MUSCLE THAT I HAVE WITH THIS EXTRA SEVEN POUNDS. CAPITALIZE ON HOW DETAILED I COME IN, THE DENSITY, THE CONDITIONING AND MY MUSCLE MATURITY WITHOUT A DOUBT.”

The Classic Physique division continues to improve with Chris Bumstead remaining at the top, but Breon is coming for him. Fans will get another chance to see Ansley compete on the biggest stage and fight to regain his title.

Do you think Breon will take back his title this year?
