Canadian bodybuilder Regan Grimes is preparing to make his return to the stage after taking a break from competition. During his time off, Grimes has been working hard in the off-season to come back even stronger. In a recent Instagram post, he showcased his shredded physique during a posing session with renowned bodybuilding coach Milos Sarcev, just weeks before his comeback contest in Italy.
Grimes first gained attention in the fitness world for his impressive physique as a teenager. In 2017, he narrowly missed out on the top prize at the Vancouver Pro, coming in second to Michael Lockett in the Men’s Open division. The following year, he switched to the Men’s Classic Physique division and secured his first professional win at the New York Pro in 2018. This victory earned him an invitation to the prestigious Mr. Olympia contest, where he impressed with an eighth-place finish.
After competing in the Men’s Open division, Grimes decided to take a break and focus on adding more muscle mass to his frame. In 2020, he made a triumphant return to the stage, dominating the competition at the Romania Muscle Fest Pro and putting on impressive showings at the Mr. Olympia shows. However, he chose to sit out the Arnold Classic and the Boston Pro last season to prepare for the 2022 Mr. Olympia.
With his sights set on the Mr. Olympia contest, Grimes stunned fans with a beastly physique update, weighing in at nearly 300 pounds in the lead-up to the event. He continued to generate buzz with another impressive physique update. However, he ultimately decided to skip the show in order to focus on further increasing his muscle mass.
Grimes has been working closely with coach Milos Sarcev, who has been confident in his aesthetics and structure. However, Sarcev identified a need for more size in order to compete against the mass monsters in the Men’s Open division. The 30-year-old bodybuilder has been sharing glimpses of his intense shoulder and lower body workouts, showcasing the hard work he has put in during his time away from competition.
Former Mr. Olympia, Samir Bannout, has praised Grimes’ impressive physique and sees him as a major threat for the coveted Sandow trophy. Bannout even offered to train Grimes for six months, using old-school workouts to further improve his conditioning. With the support of his coach and fellow bodybuilding legends, Grimes is determined to make his mark on the stage once again.
In a recent Instagram post, Grimes gave fans a glimpse of his progress, showcasing his jacked physique just weeks before his comeback contest in Italy. He shared that he practices posing every day after fasted cardio, emphasizing the importance of presentation in bodybuilding. Grimes also revealed his intense arms workout routine, which he followed about 10 weeks out from his return to the stage.
Grimes has set his sights on competing in a show in Italy before quickly turning around to participate in a contest in Spain a week later. He believes that he has made significant improvements during the off-season and is confident that he will come back stronger than ever.
Fans of Regan Grimes will undoubtedly be excited to see him step back on the stage and earn his way back to the prestigious Mr. Olympia contest. The bodybuilding world eagerly awaits his comeback, as he continues to push the boundaries of his physique and strive for greatness.
