Flex Lewis Looks Ferocious As He Gears Up For 2021 Mr. Olympia Prep

212 Bodybuilding legend Flex Lewis did not have the year he was hoping for in 2020. However he has kicked off his prep for the 2021 season, and looks to be picking things up right where he left off.

With seven consecutive wins at the Olympia under his belt, Lewis has long been regarded as the best bodybuilder in the division’s history. However he announced that he was going to be trying his luck in the Open Division, making the move in 2019.

It was expected that Flex would debut at the 2020 Mr. Olympia, and he was on track to do just that. Unfortunately a lingering injury would force him to withdraw from the contest just a few weeks from the show…

Flex Lewis is Mr. Olympia

The ‘Welsh Dragon’ does it again! Monster Energy congratulates bodybuilding icon James ‘Flex’ Lewis on winning the coveted Mr. Olympia Championship title for the seventh consecutive time in the 212-pound weight class this weekend.

At the annual Mr. Olympia competition held in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 34-year-old Welshman who resides in Boca Raton, Florida, took the top spot against the world elite of bodybuilding in the 212 pounds division, setting a new World Record for most consecutive wins in his weight category in event history. This achievement bests the previous record for six consecutive wins set by Austrian bodybuilding pioneer and Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1975.

Since its inception in 1965, the Mr. Olympia title has been awarded to the winner of the annual professional men’s bodybuilding contest during Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend. Attracting the world’s best bodybuilders – including a Ms. Olympia title for female competitors – the event is organized by the International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness…


After securing seven consecutive 212 Olympia titles, Flex Lewis is setting his sights even bigger as he works toward earning a shot at the illustrious Mr. Olympia crown on the open bodybuilding stage in 2020. That means he’s going to need to add mass to a body that already has plenty of it, but the “Welsh Dragon” is ready for the challenge. We caught up with him recently to talk about his plans for next year’s Olympia, and just how much muscle he thinks he can add…


There’s an old Welsh saying: Deuparth gwaith yw ei ddechrau, which means, “Starting the work is two-thirds of it.” James “Flex” Lewis, a proud son of Wales, is taking the wisdom of his homeland to heart as he begins his most challenging work yet: moving up from the 212 Olympia division to the Mr. Olympia open class.

Lewis, 35, stunned the bodybuilding world last July when he announced that the 2018 212 Olympia contest was going to be his final performance in that division. Having won that contest six straight times and becoming one of the most popular athletes in the sport, the hardworking Welsh native found the announcement to be difficult…
