Sultan of Symmetry
Flex Wheeler, nicknamed the ‘Sultan of Symmetry’, is known for being one of the greatest bodybuilders to have never won a Mr. Olympia title. We’ll let him off on this one, seeing as he was up against Dorian Yates and the great Ronnie Coleman. He’s also considered to have built one of the most aesthetically pleasing physiques the sport has ever seen. Flex had huge, full-muscle bellies combined with a tiny waist and small joints. Every muscle was developed, creating flawless symmetry and immaculate proportions. In terms of aesthetics, Flex was very close to perfection. In regard to his genetics for building muscle, Flex Wheeler is simply a phenomenon. Wheeler is one of the most successful bodybuilders in history. He holds the record for most Arnold wins, four, and has won the Ironman Pro Championships five times. Fans have always been in awe of his rock-hard physique and dedication to the sport. Even Bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger has hailed Flex Wheeler for his statuesque and symmetrical physique.
Flex Wheeler on Modern Bodybuilders
Flex Wheeler was one of the best bodybuilders of his era. Like many others, he is not very impressed with the current generation of competitors.
Wheeler has been a mainstay in the world of Bodybuilding for the better of 30 years. In his career, he was a winner of the Arnold Classic, as well as a multiple-time runner-up at the Olympia. As a result, he is very respected in the community.
This respected opinion of Wheeler was on display recently, during an interview with Valuetainment. Patrick Bet-David asked some bodybuilding legends to compare today’s crop of athletes to their own generation. This continued with Flex, who was asked the same question. However, when shown pictures of six of today’s bodybuilders, his response was critical but respectful.
Flex Wheelers Struggles
Wheeler’s contribution to his era and even modern bodybuilding during his decorated career came at a heavy cost. He’s appeared on the Mr. Olympia stage a number of times and has pushed some of the sport’s most recognized legends to the brink of defeat. In addition to battling eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman on stage, Flex also competed against six-time Olympia winner Dorian Yates and bodybuilding veteran Shawn Ray. “The Sultan of Symmetry” has unfortunately been through a number of surgeries. Eventually, his right leg was partially amputated as a result of a procedure that had complications. Wheeler has faced consistent health problems throughout his bodybuilding career. He had a kidney transplant in 2003 following a bad car accident. However, in a recent podcast with Dennis James, he revealed that his kidneys are starting to show signs of failure. Nevertheless, he’s maintained a formidable presence in the sport and has helped train Andrew Jacked to success.
In the past, Wheeler has been candid about his life struggles. He told retired seven-time 212 Olympia champion Flex Lewis that he wouldn’t wish what he’s gone through on his worst enemy. According to Wheeler, he’s thankful to still be alive given the alarming number of bodybuilders dying in the industry.
