A Journey of Transformation and Resilience
Larry Wheels‘ journey from a powerlifting sensation to a budding bodybuilder is not just about physical transformation but also a story of personal struggles and resilience.
Despite his tough exterior built through countless grueling training sessions, he openly admits to grappling with drug and sex addiction during his formative years.
Transitioning to a Drug-Free Path
A significant shift in Larry Wheels‘ life came when he decided to step away from all performance-enhancing drugs except for testosterone replacement therapy.
His transition was not just a matter of personal choice but a requirement to compete in the Classic Physique category, as per Tyler Manion’s rules, given his 6’1″ height and his weight limit, which could go up to 234 pounds.
Unveiling the Discipline Behind the Debut
In the pursuit of excellence in his new category, Larry Wheels took to YouTube to provide his fans with a glimpse into the rigorous discipline that goes into preparing for the upcoming Amateur Olympia competition.

He candidly reveals, “I never got into stage-ready condition, and I always said years ago I’m going to be the strongest Pro bodybuilder ever, and I never got that Pro card. So I have unfinished business, and that’s what I’m doing this for.”
Safeguarding Health and Happiness

He feels fantastic and is grateful for his overall well-being, emphasizing his desire to step away from powerlifting and strongman while his body is still healthy.
