Dexter Jackson is in incredible shape in retirement.
Dexter Jackson has vowed to stay shredded until he kicks the bucket. The bodybuilding legend hasn’t slowed down one bit in retirement. In fact, Jackson is looking just as jacked and lean as ever. His recent training videos show a man still dedicated to high level bodybuilding.
The winningest bodybuilder in the history of the game, Dexter Jackson is an absolute legend. Competing since 1992, it seemed like Jackson would never retire from competition. That changed however when the veteran finally decided to call it quits in 2020. The 2020 Olympia would be the final show for Jackson and he was given a champion’s send off.
So now that he’s accomplished everything you could wish for as a bodybuilder, Dexter Jackson is now enjoying his retirement. After competing for so many years you would think that would mean taking some time off from the gym. After all, Jackson as a competitor was always known for staying in shape which meant staying in the gym. But apparently old habits die hard.
Not only has Dexter Jackson not stopped training, the veteran is looking just as jacked as ever. His recent training doesn’t show a man who is completely finished with the sport of bodybuilding but rather a man who is still passionate about his fitness. Rather than sit on the couch all day, Jackson is hefting heavy weight and still looking in top form.

Is he as massive as ever? Clearly not. But Dexter Jackson still possesses a champion level physique at an advanced age and could still give some young guns a run for their money. Maintaining a shredded physique above the age of 40, requires a great deal of experience, discipline, understanding macros, and an off season diet plan that Jackson has followed religiously.
It’s pretty clear that Dexter Jackson not only loved competing, but training as well. It shows in the all the hard work he’s putting in currently. And he doesn’t even have to lift a finger. Right now he could never lift again and be proud of what he’s accomplished. But bodybuilding is more than just competing for Jackson. It’s a way of life on and off the stage.
A Vow to Stay Shredded
A recent Instagram post captures the mindset of Dexter Jackson perfectly. The veteran bodybuilder isn’t slowing down any time soon. He’ll be lifting for the rest of his life that much is clear from this post.
I maybe retired from the stage but never from the gym.. Your boy gone die shredded! Lol.
