Justin Rodriguez

On the other hand, Justin Rodriguez shared a picture of his physique ahead of the 2022 Arnold Classic and clearly has put the work in to develop his chest as the striations are visible even before he hits the stage.

Justin Rodriguez has struggled to hit the podium in his last few shows. However, Rodriguez put up a valiant effort when he battled against many of the world’s best bodybuilders at the 2021 Arnold Sports Festival, where he secured fourth place.

After his impressive showing at the Arnold, the bodybuilder decided to try his hand at Mr. Olympia where he ended up placing eighth. Despite being unable to reach the podium at those last two big shows, many are under the impression that Rodriguez’s physique will see him go far in 2022.  

William Bonac

Of course, William Bonac got in on the action too. As the 2020 Arnold Classic winner, many fans believe Bonac will remain a big player in his division this year. Following a sixth-place finish at the 2021 Mr. Olympia show, Bonac is ready to hit the podium and his physique indicates that he has a solid shot at doing so. 

Akim Williams

In addition, Akim Williams also shared a physique update ahead of the Arnold Classic and looks to be packing on mass in preparation. After a fifth-place finish at the 2021 Arnold and then scoring in ninth place at the 2021 Mr. Olympia show, Williams believes he’s made the right adjustments during the offseason to improve upon those positions.

Samson Dauda

Samson Dauda recently shared a physique update on social media. Overall his body looks evenly proportioned and the definition in his abs looks outstanding. 

“Chilling In the pimp robe this morning 😅😎 5 weeks out” Samson Dauda posted.

Samson Dauda is a potent force on the bodybuilding stage but has struggled to get past being runner-up as of late. In 2021, Dauda impressed with a second-place result at the Arnold Classic United Kingdom. Then, Dauda made it to the podium in his showing at the Yamamoto Cup Pro.

Finally, the rising bodybuilder once again hit the podium only to secure second place again at the Romania Muscle Fest Pro. Despite placing third and runner up for all of 2021, many fans are convinced this year will be a breakout year for Dauda. 

With the 2022 Arnold Classic five weeks away, it’s clear that bodybuilders are beginning final preparations before the big show. After witnessing the physiques of several men’s open bodybuilders, it’s clear that they left no stone unturned while preparing for one of the biggest shows of the year.
