James “Flex” Lewis has won a whopping seven consecutive 212 Mr. Olympia titles. Flex had been training since the young age of 12 when he got inspired by Tom Platz. Wanting to look like his idol, Flex stole some plastic weights from his father’s garage and used them to work out when his parents thought he was asleep.
Finally, at 15 years old, Lewis joined a gym and was able to start officially training. Now, at 38 years old, he holds the record for the most 212 Mr. Olympia wins.
