Chris Bumstead earned an unparalleled following in the bodybuilding arena with his ripped physique. The 28-year-old has also been vocal about his ups and downs in the bodybuilding journey, which resonated well with fans. CBum shared a picture of his five-week-out physique on his Instagram and the elite bodybuilding coach Greg Doucette is not impressed by the icon’s conditioning.

The IFBB Pro pointed out how the new weight class rules can impact Chris Bumstead’s winning chances, given his competitors have an added advantage this time. “They’ve increased the weight classes for many people at the Olympia, and so a guy like Urs Kalecinski, he can actually put on seven pounds of muscle. But Chris can’t really come in much bigger because his height was already peaked capped out,” Doucette explains.
