Dexter Jackson is still a beast in the gym.
When you win the Mr. Olympia competition it validates a few things. Not only are you considered the best bodybuilder in the world on that given night, it also means all the hard work, training, and sacrifice has truly paid off. Dexter Jackson had the honor of understanding that feeling first hand when he won the 2008 Olympia, upending Jay Cutler as champion.
Fast Forward ten years later and Dexter Jackson is still a solid competitor in the top five of the Open Weight division. He regularly faces off with some of the best bodybuilders in the world including William Bonac, Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay, Shawn Rhoden, and of course the current reigning Olympia champion Phil Heath.
Despite being the man of most advanced years on stage, Dexter Jackson gives it his all each and every time. Even now he trains like an absolute savage when it’s time to hit the gym. Take a look at some of this training footage showing Dexter Jackson kill it in the gym.
