In 2022, Chinedu Andrew Obiekea, aka “Andrew Jacked,” exploded onto the mainstream bodybuilding scene. During his International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness (IFBB) Pro League rookie year, the Nigerian athlete made waves by winning the 2022 Texas Pro and Arnold Classic UK. His performances were so incredible, bodybuilding legends like Ken “Flex” Wheeler believed he was the future of the sport. When Jacked successfully overcame established powers like former 212 Olympia champion (2019) Kamal Elgargni along the way and also earned an eighth place finish in his first ever Mr. Olympia in December 2022, a bright long-term outlook seems inevitable.

In 2023 in full swing, Jacked appears deadset on fulfilling his proposed “destiny.”

As the next steps in Jacked’s IFBB Pro League career unfold, fellow coach Chris Aceto isn’t mincing his words. He believes that working with Lewis can unlock a lot of potential in Jacked’s overall plans and provide a better body.

“I think it was a game-changer because I remember seeing a picture of Andrew Jacked, I think he was in Flex Lewis’ gym,” Aceto said. “Before he competed in one of the shows he won. And he looks good, you know what I mean? But you look closely, you might say, ‘God, he’s probably better than he actually looks here because he’s so well proportioned. She has a narrow waist, narrow waist, big thighs, broad shoulders.’

As for the bodybuilders Jacked needs to beat in 2023 AC, there is certainly no shortage of elite competitors. At the time of publishing this article, former champions William Bonac (2018, 2020) and Nick Walker (2021) have been confirmed to compete on Mar. 2-5 competition in Columbus, OH. Defending champion, Brandon Curry, may unsurprisingly confirm his roster status at 2023 AC in the coming weeks.

In early 2023, relative Men’s Open newcomers Derek Lunsford, Blessing Awodibu, and Michal “Križo” Križánek all announced formal plans to skip the AC in the interest of resting while focusing their energy. of improved individual performance at the 2023 Olympia in November.
