Blessing Awodibu admittedly focussed more on the upper body during the early days of bodybuilding. As a result, his lower body was the weaker part of his physique. However, as apparent from his physique update and other photos shared in recent months, he seems to have worked extensively to develop his lower body. Same is visible from his huge quads in this update.
About Blessing Awodibu
Blessing Awodibu is an IFBB Open Pro bodybuilder from Ireland. While pursuing academics to make a career was his primary goal, Awodibu turned to bodybuilding due to circumstances and even competed in his first competition at 18 years of age.
The 30-year-old won the Arnold Amateur Classic twice in a row in 2016 and 2017. He then won the IFBB Pro card with the win at the IFBB Diamond Cup in 2017. Blessing Awodibu’s plans to make the IFBB Pro debut in 2020 Arnold Classic Australia could not come to fruition due to Covid-19 imposed restrictions.
He made his pro debut with a third-place finish at the 2021 IFBB Indy Pro. Awodibu next competed at the 2021 New York Pro where he developed a bitter feud with Nick Walker. The duo has multiple social media altercations heading into the event. However, Awodibu finished sixth and Walker won the show. As a result, the rivalry never culminated into an on-stage showdown.
Awodibu decided to take extended time off to develop his physique before returning to the competition. The date of his return was not known until now. However, the 2021 IFBB Indy Pro seems to be the event that will mark his return.
