Have you ever felt like your body is working against you? Like no matter what you do you keep hitting a wall which you can’t get past? For some people the wall prevents them from burning fat and showing all the muscle they’ve cultivated underneath. For others the wall is simply that their bodies stop growing muscle. Even if they train constantly, switch their routines to avoid plateaus, have the perfect nutrition plan, for whatever reason they just can’t seem to make consistent gains.

It’s a problem that all bodybuilders face at one point or another. That point in which they plateau and have to reassess what they’ve been doing and look to make a change. At one point even the pros have been faced with that very adversity. The notion that the pros are all genetic anomalies is somewhat true, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Many of the pros had to start somewhere and even if they showed potential it didn’t mean they resembled their prime forms, physiques that took years to cultivate.

Even a veteran like Dexter Jackson had to start somewhere. Many commend Dexter Jackson for always looking sharp, hence the nickname “The Blade.” But when he was first journeying into the world of bodybuilding, Dexter Jackson was nowhere near the size he is today. It’s unbelievable to even fathom it, but Jackson once competed at 137 lbs. Fast forward to today where the former Olympia champion is hundred pounds heavier and it’s pretty hard to imagine. But there looks to be some video proof to back it up. Take a look at Dexter Jackson competing a 137 lbs.

#tbt Yeahhhh that’s me in my very first show as a 137lb bantam weight Lol! The skies the limit!!
