|Description||DVD Review: Flex Wheeler's "Hardbody".
Although "Hardbody" hit the scene (on VHS - remember that?) about 15 years ago, I have to say that it remains one of my all-time favorites of its genre - you know, where you watch your favorite bodybuilder go through his workouts, pose and maybe even eat something. Filmed in 1993, when Gold's Gym was stacked with top amateurs and pros, waistlines were nice and tight, synthol was still an idea - a crappy one, I might add - I actually had hair on my head, and Flex Wheeler was the hottest new bodybuilder in the IFBB, "Hard-body" has become a classic.
The viewer gets to watch Flex, in outstanding condition, and his close friend and training partner Rico McCinton get put through their paces by the one and only Charles Glass. The training footage is not only inspiring - damn, Flex looks amazing - but also highly entertaining, as these three offer up some pretty hilarious gym banter.
Amid all of the joking and teasing, however, you'll witness some pretty hard training, and by the end you'll shake your head in wonder that Flex doesn't have at least one Sandow on his mantel. If you're new to the sport, I urge you to check out "Hard-body." Flex Wheeler is one of the best pros ever to grace an IFBB stage.
Flex Wheeler - Mass Construction
You saw it all in the first video, Hardbody. Now check out the incredible sequel - Mass Construction! Shot just 2 days after the 1996 Mr. Olympia, this is the Flex Wheeler you've always wanted to see--huge, ripped, and stronger than hell! With the contest over, Flex loaded up on his favorite training foods (pizza and cheeseburgers) and hit the gym looking round, pumped and super vascular. At 250 pounds of full, rock solid muscle, Flex takes you through three days of gut busting training with eye-popping intensity and sickeningly heavy weights.
His homeboy from Fresno, Mr. California Ron Flowers, Flex's younger brother Robert Gibbs, and top national competitor Danny Hester, help Flex push it to the limit with lifts like 405-lb incline presses, and 160-lb dumbbell rows. If you think Flex is amazing onstage, you'll freak out when you see this awesome physique in training action.
Flex achieves pumps that are literally out of this world, and he will inspire you to be your best. The hardest part of watching this video will be trying to wait 'til it's over to run to the gym and bust out some serious lifting!
