In 2013, Flex Lewis cemented his place in bodybuilding history. He won his second Mr. Olympia 212 title and became a household name in the industry. He also signed with BSN to help take his career, and his body, to the next level.

In this new video—shot 18 days before the 2014 Arnold Classic 212—Neil Hill and Flex discuss their training partnership and how Flex's shift to BSN has affected his career.



Hill has been working with the inaugural Arnold Classic 212 Champion for more than 11 years. These guys know each other so well that their relationship has matured beyond the typical coach and trainee setup.

Evolution

Leading up to the Arnold Classic 212, Flex Lewis hit a crossroads: "I was faced with a situation where I was asked: Do I evolve as a bodybuilder and take it to the next level, or do I remain where I am?" he says. Flex obviously decided to continue his evolution, as witnessed by his stunning physique and win at the Arnold.

If you want to partake in Flex's evolution yourself, just try one of the brutal Y3T workouts Neil Hill used to build and carve Flex's back during the duo's Arnold prep. This workout stems from week two of Y3T, so the reps are relatively high and the rest is limited.

Push yourself through the entire training session and build the back of a champion.
