Generation Iron Justin Compton Mr. Olympia

Why isn’t Compton competing in this year’s event?

The secret is out. Justin Compton is a true monster and his physique backs up that claim rather emphatically. The young man, only 26 years old, is truly an up and comer to keep your eyes on in the years to come. Since becoming a pro after the 2012 Nationals, Compton has been on everyone’s radar as the man to watch. He has great size and muscle maturity far beyond what would be expected from a bodybuilder his age.

Despite his genetics gifts, it seems that the young bodybuilder is looking to take an unexpected approach for his 2015 campaign. Apparently Compton is choosing to forgo competing in this year’s Olympia event. To many it will come as a shock, particularly after doing so well in this past year’s Arnold Sports Festival and Arnold Classic Australia events. It seems like Compton has a lot of momentum behind him, but he’s choosing to slow things down a bit and take a different path than expected. Check out the video below to see just what the young bodybuilder has in store for the rest of the calendar year.
