Dexter Jackson may approach 50, but his body seems to be timeless. If you want proof, just go to Instagram where "The Blade" regularly shows videos of themselves on the iron.
In a recent post, he pushes 10 plates on each side, while we can only guess that it was a brutal leg workout. Check it below:

In the post, he gave the fans some advice in the comments and answered questions about his training.
"No supersets," he told one. "Stay heavy for the fullness and my diet is cutting." He also made it clear that the block behind his back in the video prevents his tailbone from rounding during the movement.
Jackson scored a milestone victory in the Tampa Pro 2019, the last major IFBB Pro League competition before the Olympics. As a former Mr. Olympia (2008), he would have qualified for this year's show, without the points or pro-show victory needed by a typical competitor to qualify but the 49-year-old's Tampa Pro win his 29th IFBB Pro League victory – a new record.
At this point, The Blade has three wins over Ronnie Coleman, who set the 2004 record at 26. And as if the new record is not enough, Jackson strives to round off 30 victories to his resume. Many agree that he looks as good as he has in years and some fans are wondering if the 2019 Olympics could be the victory he desires. A mixed field of participants suggests this year's winner, and Jackson appears to be making an effort to stage his best this September. For Olympic updates and tickets, visit mrolympia.com .No
