Nick Walker’s offseason preparation has been insane and is continuing to intensify
Nick Walker is entering his second season and has made it clear that he will dedicate 2022 to preparing for the Olympia. After a strong 2021 campaign, Walker emerged as one of the top bodybuilders in Men’s Open. By the looks of his recent physique updates, Walker looks primed and ready for a championship-level performance on the biggest stage.
Walker has not been shy about sharing physique updates. Last week, Walker took to Instagram to share yet another update along with a massive deadlift workout. He completed two sets of stiff-leg deadlifts with 315 pounds. The bodybuilder performed 8-10 reps going slow on the way down to control the weight and get a good stretch.
The 2022 Olympia will return to Las Vegas from Dec. 15-18. With about nine months of prep remaining, Walker does not seem to be wasting any time or workouts.
“STIFF LEG DEADLIFTS 2 HARD SETS OF 8-10 REPS WITH 315.
SURE I COULD PUSH MORE WEIGHT WHICH IM SURE I WILL IN TIME. BUT I WANT TO MAKE SURE MY HAMSTRINGS ARE GETTING ALL THE WORK HERE WITHOUT BRINGING MY BACK INTO IT.
SLOW NEGATIVES ON THESE AND EXPLODING UP JUST DESTROY MY HAMSTRINGS”
Nick Walker landed victories during the 2021 New York Pro followed by his Arnold Classic performance. Just two weeks after winning the Arnold Classic, Walker earned a top-five finish at the Olympia. This was a strong showing during his first appearance on the biggest stage in the sport. He vowed to put on a better show this time around.
Walker decided not to defend his title at this year’s Arnold Classic so he could put all of his focus on the Olympia. He has started training with Dom Supersliced this year and has taken on a new training regimen. At this time, Walker is weighing around 295 pounds, which he shares during his workout videos on YouTube.
There is no doubt that Walker has the drive to be named Mr. Olympia in his career. This is the reason he has bypassed each show this year and will continue to train at a high level. Now, it is all about putting the finishing touches on his physique and that is the plan moving forward.
