When a constellation of some of the biggest bodybuilding stars aligns at the 2023 Arnold Classic (AC), most will understand who to focus their “telescope”. Some of the usual suspects like 2021 AC winner Nick Walker, former two-time Mr. Olympia (2020-2021) Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay, and two-time 212 Olympia king (2020, 2022) Shaun Clarida figure to maximize their time in the Columbus, OH, limelight on Mar. 2-5, 2023.
However, some believe that reigning 2022 Texas Pro and 2022 Arnold Classic UK champion Chinedu Andrew Obiekea, aka “Andrew Jacked,” will claim a dominant performance at the 2023 AC. After a recent addition to his training plans by working with Chris “Psycho” Lewis, such a statement may not be outside the realm of possibility. In Feb. 1, 2023, Jacked’s other top trainer, Chris Aceto, appeared on a podcast episode with RxMuscle. While updating Jacked’s ongoing work for 2023 AC, the trainer maintained that the athlete found in tip-top shape in Central Ohio.
According to Aceto, Jacked is taking well to a new strength regimen imposed on him by Lewis. Lewis appears to be on a mission to destroy Jacked before rebuilding him, but the bodybuilder is unfazed by such goals.
” …Andrew [Jacked] is pushing back against Chris ‘Psycho’ Lewis,” explained Aceto. “I know Chris. Chris just wanted to really crush on her and part of it was to see where she was mentally. Then, the other side is to see, can he do it [Jacked] actually administer the training that Chris wants him to undergo? On both of those accounts, I’d say Chris would give him an ‘A.’ He took the training and sent it back. Chris pushed him as far as Chris thought he should push.
With 2023 AC just weeks away, Aceto maintains that Jacked is now in the best position to capture his first title in the competition. However, with so much time left to prepare, the trainer doesn’t put a ceiling on what the bodybuilder can do in the near future.
“I think it’s his [Jacked’s] the best comes in five weeks [at the 2023 Arnold Classic],” said Aceto. “I think his best look today [the day of the interview]. This is probably the best look. That includes being on the Olympia stage. I think he’s better now than he was on the Olympia stage. … If the  The Olympia is tomorrow, and he’s carrying this package, I think he’s a lot fuller and tighter than the day of the show. Those are just daily training sessions. “
Time will tell how Jacked fares on the 2023 AC stage. The athlete may simultaneously seek the help of two expert trainers in Aceto and Lewis, knowing that there will be many trials of experienced competitors to overcome. If these signs of Jacked’s ongoing process are to be interpreted correctly, early March should be the show.
