Chris Bumstead provided a physique update just three days out of the 2021 Olympia competition.
There is no doubt that Chris Bumstead is the class of the Classic Physique division in bodybuilding. The reigning two-time Olympia champion, Bumstead will enter the 2021 competition looking to make it three in a row. The Canadian bodybuilder has not been shy about providing updates on social media.
Bumstead is active on both Instagram and YouTube. Just three days away from the biggest event of the year, Bumstead has provided a physique update on both platforms. He released a YouTube video showing progress. This is nothing new for the competitor as he has given some workout and meal-plan advice on his page before. On Instagram, Bumstead showed off a picture, alongside personal trainer Axel Lopez.
“Peak week for me, show day for @axcellent_fitness 💃🏻 We been killing ourselves for this now it’s time to show it off. Kill it today brother🙏🏼

This will be Chris Bumstead’s fourth appearance in the Olympia. He began in 2017 and finished second twice before earning back-to-back victories in 2019 and 2020. Heading into this year’s event, Bumstead is once again the favorite in the Classic Physique division.
As of now, Bumstead seems content about remaining in the Classic Physique division. He has referenced his health in the past and the fact that this division allows him to remain healthy and within his limits. Health has been a main concern surrounding Men’s Open bodybuilding over the last year and this led to some comments by Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was quoted during the Arnold Classic saying that Classic Physique if the future of bodybuilding.
For now, Men’s Open remains in the family as Iain Valliere is the brother-in-law of Bumstead. It has been a successful year for Valliere, finishing with two victories and a second-place finish at the Arnold Classic, heading into the Olympia.
Chris Bumstead remains an elite competitor in Classic Physique and has a chance to win his third-straight Olympia. There are some elite competitors vying for that top spot but Bumstead has been showing that he is in a league of his own. Will that continue this year? If social media is any indication, it very well could continue for Bumstead.
