Flex Lewis at 198 lbs. / YouTube

Flex Lewis provided a physique update today. The 7-time 212 Mr. Olympia, who last competed when he won the 2018 212 Olympia, got up to almost 260 last year when he focused on a comeback in the open Mr. Olympia. But the Welsh Dragon has been steadily shedding pounds of mostly muscle ever since deciding against that comeback and retiring from the bodybuilding stage for good last May.

Two weeks ago on his YouTube channel, Lewis, who turns 40 this year, appeared at 198 lbs. He’s recently been as light as 196 lbs. Today, the 5’5½” bodybuilding legend weighed in at an even 200, and provided an update on Instagram:

Weight: 200lbs (Lightest 196lbs natural)
Goal: 210lbs – 215lbs (Healthy/ Athletic/ Jacked)
Cardio: 7x week
Training: 2-3 week
4-5 meals days
First and Last (Protein & Fats only)
Wake up: 4am
Bed: 930pm – 1030pm
I have worked hard on losing just under 60lbs of weight (natural) over several months, and as most know I am not one for showcasing what I look like at the best of times in prep, let alone hairy off-season. Lol
But….. its TIME to START and show my fans and followers the journey. I am about 2wks in and things are starting to click i am up a few pounds. Nothing has been consistent as I have also been traveling last three weeks. Business to family time.

Having retired from the stage nearly five years ago, Flex Lewis is staying busier than ever in muscular matters, as the owner of the Dragon’s Lair Gym in Las Vegas, as host of his own weekly podcast, and in various other business ventures, including the recent announcement that he’ll be a commentator for this year’s World’s Strongest Man.
