1. Dexter Jackson
He is the oldest and experienced top Olympia won contestant in this age, starting his streak from 1999 to this day in 2020. Unsurprisingly, he is planning to compete in 2020, Mr. Olympia, at the age of 50. We know Dexter Jackson for having the best set of abs in bodybuilding, dubbed ‘The Blade’ for his razor-sharp conditioning and consistent contestready-shape. Besides owning a record high of 28 professional bodybuilding titles from the IFBB, Jackson has won Arnold Classic 5 times more than any other bodybuilder. He has also taken part in 19 competitions for Mr. Olympia. And, after several years in the top four, Jackson finally tasted victory when he won the 2008 Mr. Olympia contest.
2. Phil Heath
Phil Heath made his professional debut in 2006 after discovering bodybuilding in 2002. From 2011 to 2017, he won seven consecutive Mr. Olympia wins before Shawn Rhoden dethroned him last year. Phillip Heath, who by his nickname, “The Gift,” many knows, grew up in Seattle, Washington, and was a typical jock of high school. He played varsity basketball and excelled enough to win a University of Denver basketball scholarship. Although he enjoyed basketball, he was searching for his next challenge and discovered the world of bodybuilding in 2002 only after college. For his first event, The Rocky Mountain NPC USA Championship “Northern,” he boosted his body from 185 pounds to 215 pounds of pure muscle, before cutting down to 192 pounds. Heath won–quite the way to start his career. He trained harder, grew larger, and finally picked up many other titles, including his IFBB Pro card and seven Mr. Olympia wins.
3. Flex Wheeler
Kenneth “Flex” Wheeler racked up an incredible 17 professional championships, but he never won the Sandow, finishing at second position three times. He won a record four times for the Arnold Classic and was once described by Arnold Schwarzenegger as “the greatest bodybuilders he had ever seen.”Flex is regarded by experienced bodybuilding fans as the best of the best, not only for aesthetic purposes but as a bodybuilder in general. If you lined up all the pro bodybuilders from all the different eras and put them all in one place, you’d be hard-pressed not to choose Flex as having the best physique
among them. He was all bodybuilding represented: with very few flaws, size, and detail. In fact, he won the all first 4 shows he entered, including a pretty amazing 2nd place finish in his first Mr. Olympia, we can look back on his rookie debut in 1993. Flex Wheeler had the best mid-section and a chiseled yet big body to accompany. He had all-size, mass, definition, proportion, and symmetry. Throughout his career, he was often compared to near-perfect legends like Steve Reeves and Bob Paris, yet attained an unprecedented level of muscularity.
4. Jay Cutler
Jay Cutler, personally speaking, is my favorite bodybuilder. Although Jay spent most of his career fighting with Ronnie Coleman in second, he’s a four-time Mr. Olympia on his own. He would have been Mr. Olympias winning the best bodybuilder of history if it weren’t for Big Ron. Also, Jay is the only Mr. Olympia to lose the competition and then come back to win the title. Jay Cutler is a winner of four times Mr. Olympia (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010). One of the modern-day mass builders Cutler weighed in on the stage at a solid 275 pounds. Cutler is considered to have one of the most massive yet aesthetically appealing physiques in the modern era with his massive upper body and feathered quads.
5. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Even if you know nothing about bodybuilding, you’ll probably know who Arnold Schwarzenegger is. The bodybuilder from Austria set records in the world of fitness, becoming the youngest person to win the title of Mr. Universe when he was 20. Over the years, he racked up countless titles, including four more titles of Mr. Universe and seven prestigious titles of Mr. Olympia. After an illustrious bodybuilding career, Schwarzenegger began to conquer another industry–Hollywood. Many consider him as the world’s best bodybuilder ever. However, Schwarzenegger could not compete with the standards of today in terms of athleticism. In fact, many bodybuilders have shown better strength and mass since the early 1990s when competing with Schwarzenegger. Arnold Schwarzenegger has successfully changed bodybuilding for decades with his charismatic personality and never say die mindset, facing all odds.
I hope you agree with our top 5 bodybuilders list.
