Larry Wheels to compete in the Classic Physique division?
Strength athlete Larry Wheels recently hinted at competing in the Classic Physique division. Having competed in the Open division prior, it appears that the popular powerlifter and bodybuilder is looking not only to return to the posing stage, but in a different division to boot.
Always known for challenging himself and breaking personal records, Larry Wheels is always experimenting with competing in different strength sports. With a pretty well developed physique it was natural for Larry to try his hand at bodybuilding. His foray into bodybuilding saw him competing in the Men’s Open division. While he put in a decent showing, it was quite clear that he lacked the kind of size to put the division on notice.
Larry Wheels is heavily muscled compared to the average athlete. That said, he doesn’t have nearly enough size to be truly competitive in the Open division. But while he may not be a mass monster, Larry is discovering more and more that his frame fits another category rather smoothly.
A Big Move
The Classic Physique division appears to be an ideal category for Larry Wheels. It possesses athletes that are well muscled, but nowhere near the hulking beasts in the Open division. Larry has the kind of frame that would fit nicely.
In a recent post to Instagram Larry Wheels admitted that he’s flirting with the idea of competing in the Classic Physique division.
I would like to try classic bodybuilding poses. I think my physique suits that division much better then open bodybuilding poses.
