Hunter Labrada has put in some huge work since the 2021 Chicago Pro.
Hunter Labrada has been on a tear putting on size in many ways over the course of the season. He has his sights set on the 2022 Olympia competition and it showed in a recent physique update. Labrada shared side-by-side photos of his back gains and it is visible in his lower lats.
Labrada last competed in the 2021 Olympia back in September where he finished fourth. The picture on the left in his latest Instagram post shows his back during his victory at the 2021 Chicago Pro. This is the progression that has been made from July 2021 to March 2022.

1 DAY AFTER CHICAGO VS THIS OFFSEASON
252LBS VS 282LBS
STILL HAVE CLOSE TO 5 MONTHS TO CONTINUE TO GROW BEFORE THE ⭕️ PREP STARTS, AND STILL HAVE PLENTY OF BULLETS LEFT IN THE GUN TO DO SO😈”
Hunter Labrada has put on 31 pounds since the Chicago Pro. He shared that his bodyweight during the competition was 251 pounds compared to 282 pounds currently. This is great progression especially with five months left of bulking before he begins preparing for the Olympia in December.
Labrada has put some serious effort into building his back and this is a way that he can gain an advantage on the field. He made his pro debut in 2020 and has already made his way near the top of Men’s Open bodybuilding. He finished eighth at his first Olympia in 2020 and jumped up four spots in 2021. Labrada is one of the best, young stars in the sport and will look to contend with the likes of Brandon Curry, Hadi Choopan, and of course Big Ramy, who is the reigning two-time champion.
At this pace, Labrada will show up with more mass than he did in 2021. He has built muscle across his entire back and has made sure to hit his lower lats using different sets of workouts.
Hunter Labrada is the son of bodybuilding great Lee Labrada. The sport is in his blood and he has been around it his entire life. Because of this, he understands how it works and what the training regimens must look like. It seems as though Labrada is hitting all of them where he needs.
