Ansley’s off-season approach in 2022 is different from years past. Since losing the Classic Physique Olympia title to Chris Bumstead in 2019, Ansley has finished in bronze position behind Bumstead and Terrence Ruffin in 2020 and 2021. Seeing no improvement in his results, Ansley went on a diet rich in calories and carbohydrates to help him gain more size to face the Canadian champion.

Regime change is not the only change. In the video above, after tossing a set of cable chest flies, Ansley shared that he plans to get much leaner sooner than ever before so his body can better acclimate to this. condition and look neater on stage.

Be at my six, seven, eight week weight ceiling. That’s how we’re going to be dangerous.

Ansley will be 43 at Olympia 2022. Despite the age gap between him and 27-year-old Bumstead, Ansley believes the pressure and challenge of getting back to the top of the sport will create a healthy change for him.

You have to apply pressure if you want different results. You have to make yourself uncomfortable and you have to accept it.

After another set of cable flies, Ansley knocked out the incline dumbbell flies, working the chest more in the stretched position. He followed with a declining chest press, working up to 360 pounds. Four sets were shown on camera.

We’ll see if his change in off-season strategy and updated mindset allow him to reclaim his Olympia crown.
