“Woke up at 294.6, up a pound from the last check-in,” Walker wrote on social. “Strength is still rising here on a weekly basis. Workouts are top-notch. I’m extremely happy with how everything is going and how I’m progressing. My appetite is still in a very good place. Still plenty of time!”
About Nick Walker
Walker quickly established himself as a name to watch in the IFBB Pro League in 2021. His muscularity and size have no doubt contributed to his continued success on some of bodybuilding’s biggest stages.
Walker’s 2021 season started at the New York Pro, a competition he won handily. As a result of the victory, the 27-year-old earned his qualification to compete at his first Mr. Olympia show that same year.
Before his first Olympia appearance, Walker took his talents to the 2021 Arnold Classic and won the show on his first attempt. The victory was especially impressive because Walker predicted he would win the show before entering.

Despite the lack of experience, Walker convincingly made his case as the best athlete on stage and defeated the likes of Iain Valliere and Steve Kuclo in the process. Walker capped off his season competing at the 2021 Mr. Olympia contest, ultimately securing a fifth-place position.
“The Mutant” routinely shares social media posts and videos detailing some of the workouts he’s using to get ready for his season. One such routine saw him joined by 2019 212 division Mr. Olympia Kamal Elgargni. The footage showed both bodybuilders hitting a harrowing leg training session.
The Future for Walker
In February 2022, Walker announced that he started working with Dominick Mutascio. Walker parted ways with his former coach Matt Jansen amicably. Since then, he’s posted a series of impressively heavily lifts, including incline dumbbell presses with 200 pounds and seated shoulder presses with 165 pounds.
Walker addresses training in a thorough manner and is laser-focused on making incremental gains during this stage of his prep. After commanding such a stellar 2021 season in the sport, anticipation for his return to the Mr. Olympia stage continues to grow.
