James Hollingshead Looks Like a Jacked Gorilla Ahead of Olympia

James Hollingshead looks jacked ahead of the Olympia.

Ahead of the 2021 Olympia, James Hollingshead is looking like the dark horse to crack the top 5. While he hasn’t competed since the end of 2020, Hollingshead has been hard at work maintaining and improving upon his physique. These days, more than 19 weeks out, James Hollingshead is looking super jacked.

One of UK’s most prominent bodybuilders, James Hollingshead has worked his way up. While he always had potential to get to the next level, it wasn’t until 2020 that he really showed his class. After winning the Europa Pro and British Gran Prix in 2020, Hollingshead decided to sit out the 2020 Olympia.

Many wondered about this move. While he may have sat out the 2020 Olympia, Hollingshead also qualified for the 2021 show. With that in mind, Hollingshead decided that prepping for 2021 would be more beneficial for his chances than rushing into the the 2020 show.

It makes a lot of sense to be honest. The time off most likely allowed James Hollingshead to heal. That healing meant his body could recover and also potentially meant new muscle growth in the short term. After all, building muscle requires the break down AND healing of muscle. Rest is a great way to ensure proper healing. Also, the time off most likely allowed him focus on his specific strengths and weaknesses in order to make improvements.

To win the @mrolympiallc you have to take it from others who are also trying to take it from you

It’s a fight and a very real one

Though not with violence..its a fight with mental fortitude, physical capacity and absolute perseverance

I’ve been fighting for half my life.

James Hollingshead has begun his Olympia prep in earnest and is looking impressive. He has the shape, size, and symmetry that should carry him very far at the 2021 show. Here he is training arms and looking to build some even more massive peaks.

With Big Ramy shocking the bodybuilding world in 2020, all bets are off for this show. Brandon Curry is still looking to reclaim his title and Hadi Choopan is a viable threat to the title as well. With so much opposition, James Hollingshead will have to pull out all the stops if he wants to not only crack the top 5, but win the show outright.

Do you think James Hollingshead will crack the top 5 at the Olympia?
