Chris Bumstead does an intense deadlift session during leg day.
Chris Bumstead is the Classic Physique champion for a reason. His performance at the 2020 Olympia cemented his reign as champion. He has been putting in all the necessary work in the gym and it showed. Recently he proved why he is the champion with some epic deadlifts during his leg day training.
Being the Classic Physique champion, every body part must be on point. Knowing this, Chris Bumstead has always looked to dial in his training and improve in every aspect.
For bodybuilding in general, having great legs is a prerequisite to assuring dominance. Skipping leg day simply isn’t an option when you want to become the best of the best. As such, Bumstead recently put in some pretty serious work on his wheels.
A recent training session saw Chris Bumstead killing legs at the gym. During the session, the Classic Physique champ did deadlifts for the first time in months. The deadlift is a staple in many lifter’s arsenals. But they can be pretty brutal. There’s a reason why lifters sometimes cycle the lift into their training rather than making it a consistent exercise. The amount of stress the lift puts on the body can be pretty strenuous.
That said, Chris Bumstead clearly enjoys a good challenge and didn’t back off one bit. The clip below demonstrates his intensity while performing the classic lift.
