Flex Wheeler – Hardbody
In Flex Wheeler’s debut rookie season as a professional bodybuilder, he took the industry by storm. Not only did he make history by winning four consecutive pro shows in 1993, but he won three of them with perfect scores! But that wasn’t enough for FLEX. He went on to place second in his first appearance at Joe Weider’s Mr. Olympia competition.

DVD Review: Flex Wheeler’s “Hardbody”
Although “Hardbody” hit the scene (on VHS – remember that?) about 15 years ago, I have to say that it remains one of my all-time favorites of its genre – you know, where you watch your favorite bodybuilder go through his workouts, pose and maybe even eat something. Filmed in 1993, when Gold’s Gym was stacked with top amateurs and pros, waistlines were nice and tight, synthol was still an idea – a crappy one, I might add – I actually had hair on my head, and Flex Wheeler was the hottest new bodybuilder in the IFBB, “Hard-body” has become a classic.
The viewer gets to watch Flex, in outstanding condition, and his close friend and training partner Rico McCinton get put through their paces by the one and only Charles Glass. The training footage is not only inspiring – damn, Flex looks amazing – but also highly entertaining, as these three offer up some pretty hilarious gym banter.
Amid all of the joking and teasing, however, you’ll witness some pretty hard training, and by the end you’ll shake your head in wonder that Flex doesn’t have at least one Sandow on his mantel. If you’re new to the sport, I urge you to check out “Hard-body.” Flex Wheeler is one of the best pros ever to grace an IFBB stage.
I watched it the other day for the 10th-plus time, and my motivation for improving my physique jumped to yet another level.
