Hadi Choopan Shares Posing Video

On Thursday afternoon, Hadi Choopan shared a bit of an inspiration video from the gym. In between sets on barbell lunges, Choopan spoke on what it takes to return to form. The video was translated at the bottom.

“Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forwards. It’s like propelling your experience infinitely forward. So all that, the reversals, aren’t used as an excuse for your progress later.”

“If you see the roads of your life, your goal is so small that you have to move beyond your purpose elsewhere in life, get out of that and start moving.”

Choopan will enter the Arnold Classic as one of the favorites to win the entire thing. It is a loaded group that will take the stage, minus Andrew Jacked and Rubiel Mosquera, who recently pulled out of the show for various reasons.

It is clear that Hadi Choopan is using his 2023 Olympia finish as motivation moving forward and this means we might see the best version we have ever seen.
