I'm a Mr Olympia champ – I'm going for my 10th Arnold Classic win at 53 years old | The Sun

A BODYBUILDING legend is aiming to raise the bar and win his tenth Arnold Classic at 53.

Dexter "The Blade" Jackson is a seasoned veteran when it comes to pumping iron but his latest body transformation has left fans amazed.

The retired IFBB professional bodybuilder has 29 major wins under his belt and is hoping to go one more at this year's Arnold Classic.

Standing at five-foot-six and weighing in at 235lbs, the senior is set to cut 20lbs as he prepares for his next title.

A clip posted on Jackson's Instagram showed the man jacked and in total beast mode.

He is seen shifting huge weight in all sorts of exercises including latissimus dorsi pull downs, triceps extensions and seated rows.

This year's prestigious competition will be held in March.

Jackson said: "Staying in shape is more challenging when you retire.

"But getting it in.

"Looking forward to an amazing 2023."
