We caught up with Johnnie Jackson the other day while he was in town shooting a video for bodybuilding.com at Gold's Venice. In the pictures, Johnnie is weighing around 247 pounds at just under three weeks out from the Ironman - the pictures were taken on Saturday, January 27.
Jackson finished the 2007 season on a high note, winning the Atlantic City Pro for the second year in a row and finishing in the top 10 (9th) at the Olympia for the first time in his career. According to the man many call the strongest pound-for-pound bodybuilder in the world, that was only a preview of what's on the horizon.
"I'm bigger and fuller and rounder," Jackson says. "My legs are starting to match my upper body, my physique is more complete."
For more with Jackson, check back this weekend for Johnnie's Flexonline Interview.
