The Blade

Dexter Jackson won his first Masters Mr. Olympia on December 8. He is the only man to win an open Mr. Olympia and a Masters Olympia. Dexter is defying the age factor and came in with one of the best looks in his career. I thought he would be going down hill early last year, but he has proven me wrong. At 43 years of age this guy just keeps getting better. Here is a photo I took of him at the 2001 Flex Pro.

If I had to narrow it down to one thing that inspired me to become a bodybuilder, I'd have to say it was a photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger on the beach hitting a 3/4 back pose. I was amazed when I first saw it. And I'm still amazed whenever I see it. I decided to do a painting of it in acrylics and I finished it last night. I have  a few areas on it that I might go and fix someday, but for now I'm happy with it. Seeing this photo of Arnold in this pose never gets old and it fires me up to train hard every single time I see it.
