Generation Iron Dexter Jackson Mr. Olympia History

Take a look at who’s killing it in the gym…

We’re just six weeks out from the Arnold Classic and already bodybuilders are showing signs of getting competition ready. This year’s event will be missing quite a few top 10 notables in the line up, but with their absence a more intriguing story has been produced – at the ripe age of 45 years-old, Dexter “The Blade” Jackson is looking to make history and become the only bodybuilder to win the Arnold Classic a record FIVE times.

The Blade took to Instagram to show his progress leading up to the March competition. Take a look.


Dexter is looking pretty damn massive and we can only assume the man is as ripped and shredded as always. As his bodybuilding competition career comes to a close, it’s great to see that the former Mr. Olympia champion is still pushing himself to his limits in the gym and striving to make history. He has the drive and we know he has the talent, we’ll just have to wait and see if that translates into a record breaking win.
