After clinching 21

2 Olympic titles seven times in a row, Flex Lewis aims to put even more emphasis on the famous Mr. Olympia crown on the open-bodybuilding stage in 2020 This means that he must add mass to a body that already has plenty of mass, but the "Welsh Dragon" is ready for the challenge. We met him recently to talk about his plans for next year's Olympics and how much muscle he can add.

M & F : So it'll be a bit weird to be in Vegas Vegas in 2019 will not see you on stage, but everyone knows you have big plans for 2020. Talk to us a little bit about it.

Lewis: Well, obviously the show was selected Mr. Olympia, where I'll be the next to perform.

So you go directly to the Olympics?

Yes, that is the game plan. Of course I talked about it, but for all the fans who do not know, it's the year 2020. The off-season started fantastically, I put a lot of weight on it. In December and January I was in the UK with my mother's kitchen and [I’ve] benefited enormously.

Looking back on Olympics from the 80s and 90s to the 2000s, we've seen smaller guys doing very well: Lee Labrada, Rich Gaspari, Shawn Ray, Lee Priest. But it's been a while since we had a smaller man, obviously because of Division 202 and 212. So the big question is, can you win?

I will play to my strengths and that is conditioning and symmetry. This is one of the reasons why I chose 2020 and not 2019 – to bring this package that no one has ever seen, not even me. Of course, I train to win. I would not rush into the mix to stand up there and reach the top 5. I come to win. At every show I've ever put my head in, I train for that first place. And if I had not believed in it and not the people around me who believe in me and achieve that goal, then I would not plunge into this 2020 mix.

I look at the winner of last year. Shawn rhodes. The lines, the symmetry and the conditioning are something that has motivated me more than ever to return to this stage. Well, of course, depending on who wins [in 2019] if it is a completely different look, I will still bring what I think is the ideal package. And that's one of the reasons why, as I said, I have to slow it down without ruining my body. I would not be able to implement this development and this overall package in a short period of one year. [2020 is] will be a brand new Flex Lewis that no one has ever seen.

Now everyone who follows you knows we always see these pictures of you at 222, 225, where you look like you're doing Contest Shape, but it's just incredibly cartoonish. Do you and your trainer, Neil Hill, have an idea, even if you have no idea where you're actually going to be on stage, or is it too early to predict that?

Definitely in the mid-220s. [Going into the] 212 Last year, and the year before and the year before, I could have been on stage in my upper teens, down to the low and last year into the mid-220s. So, depending on my off-season this year and next year, of course, I think I'll be well off in the 220s, possibly just under 230. And again, as my off-season ran that year, I was a very meager 240
