Bodybuilding legend Dexter Jackson looks lean in retirement and shares his favorite 21 bicep session – Fitness Volt

Bodybuilding legend Dexter Jackson is the picture of longevity and is widely recognized for his ability to rub elbows with elite athletes over the past few years. In recent Instagram posts, Jackson shared his post-retirement aesthetic build and his favorite 21s bicep workout.

Jackson competed in the sport for almost three decades and during that time he reached incredible heights as an IFBB Pro. His commitment to the craft and willingness to train has made him a more than worthy opponent for any bodybuilding show. Dexter secured first place at the 2008 Mr. Olympia, scoring the biggest win of his career, and in the process defeated fellow legendary four-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler. “The Blade” also earned the distinction of winning the Arnold Classic a total of five times.

In 2020 Jackson competed in his final event at Olympia and prefaced the performance by announcing win or lose he would walk away from the sport and retire. After placing ninth at the 2020 Olympia, Dexter has retired but is continuously sharing workouts to keep fans up to date on what’s been occupying his time since ditching such a hectic schedule.

Along with posting an awesome physical update on Instagram, Dexter also gave fans one of his “favorite” arm-strengthening exercises, Biceps 21.

“Just another day at the office. Happy Monday folks!!” Dexter Jackson posted.
Biceps 21 are a modified version of the bicep curls used to build the arms. The 21 biceps are broken down into three ranges of motion. The workout starts with seven partial reps in the lower half of the movement, then seven reps in the upper half, then seven reps of the full bicep curl.

In February, Dexter shared a chest and arm workout and revealed he weighs around 210 pounds. Dexter likes to give his followers an idea of ​​the types of exercises he likes the most.

Dexter has made it clear he has no intention of returning to competition. There have been rumors that Masters Olympia may soon return to the bodybuilding schedule. Olympia Chairman Jake Wood spoke to Dennis James and gave the green light for Masters Olympia for next year, confirming “definitely by 2023”. Jackson won the last Masters Olympia in 2012. He would be an ideal competitor for show, but maintaining his health rather than performing has become a priority, especially with the number of deaths affecting the sport.
