Nick Walker is working legs intensely ahead of the 2022 Olympia.
Four weeks out from the 2022 Olympia Nick Walker is Training legs with incredible intensity. The 2021 Arnold Classic champion is looking to dial in his physique and give A final push heading into the big show.
After cracking the top five in the 2021 Olympia, Nick Walker established himself as one of the top bodybuilders on the planet. While he hoped to crack the top three last year, it was not meant to be and as such Walker had to return to the drawing board. But rather than take his fifth place showing as a setback, Walker has chosen to double down and push himself even harder for the 2022 show.
Now With only four weeks until the biggest bodybuilding show of the year, Nick Walker is pulling out all the stops. Training with Matt Jansen, Walker recently put in an epic leg day that he hopes will give them the edge come December. And with hopes of challenging the raining Mr. Olympia champion Big Ramy himself, Walker is leaving no stone unturned. According to him, every day ahead of the Olympia counts.
“Every day has gotta count,” said Nick Walker. “It’s crazy to even think I only have four more leg [sessions] left. I started prep 20 weeks out and it’s now four weeks out. I’d say coming to Vegas at eight weeks, coming here was a game changer. I love Tampa right, but the show is here.
“Me getting back with Matt [Jansen] was definitely a game changer mentally.”

Nick walker would go on to detail his arm training regimen heading into the Olympia. It seems that Walker has placed a major emphasis on volume for his recent training.
“I’m doing a lot more volume than I normally do. Training with low volume high intensity is good because we’re feeding if you know what I mean but I have the size that I think is needed. Just doing more sets. Moving a little faster, more drop sets. That’s going to create more detail for me for a better look on stage.”
