IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson has competed in bodybuilding for years, and added another title to his dossier as two-time Masters Olympia champion on December 8, 2012. He is also the only IFBB Pro that holds both Mr. Olympia and Masters Olympia titles.
Although bodybuilding has a lot to do with size; it has just as much to do with symmetry. In the quest to become giants among giants, many bodybuilders lose their symmetry and gain waistlines equal to pregnancy in its early stages. However, Jackson maintains a crisp, clean, symmetrical physique from show to show, which adds to his longevity.
During an interview with Muscular Development’s Dan Solomon and Flex Wheeler, Wheeler points out the,
“package that he brought today, the fullness and the separation and everything is second bar none. And, I’ll say it right here, hopefully I’m there next year at the Arnold classic when he ties my record cause I’m looking forward to him to do that. If he comes in this type of condition there’s nothing that noboby will be able to do about it.”
Although Wheeler and Solomon were praising Jackson, Jackson sang the praises of George Farah, his coach, crediting him for his re-creation and success in the Masters Olympia.
