The 2022 Indy Pro, one of the biggest bodybuilding shows of the year, just wrapped up over the weekend. On Saturday, May 14th, top athletes came to the Indiana Convention Center to compete for a spot at the 2022 Olympia. The featured divisions were Men’s 212, Men’s Open, and Women’s Bodybuilding. Let’s take a look at the results of the 2022 Indy Pro below!
Last weekend we saw the 2022 Pittsburgh Pro take place, where some big winners emerged. This weekend at the 2022 Indy Pro had a similar vibe in impacting the sport. This weekend, the three big winners were Blessing Awodibu in the Men’s Open, Bryan Balzano in Men’s 212, and Theresa Ivancik in Women’s Bodybuilding.
Blessing Awodibu looked unbeatable from the beginning of the show. His plan worked to perfection as he took a long break from competition to put on the necessary size to be a top contender.
Last year Awodibu placed 3rd at this same event, so he’s definitely made vast improvements to his physique. Many thought that Justin Rodriguez would give Blessing a run for his money after his performance at the 2022 Arnold Classic and then his second place finish in the 2022 Boston Pro, but it was Charles Griffen who came the closest to the top.
Bryan Balzano’s triumphant win is almost one of a movie. After having some serious health scares and multiple years away from the sport, Balzano managed to work his way back up by placing fourth in the 2021 Indy Pro. So, this win is a massive accomplishment as many never thought he'd be able to make it to the Olympia.
Theresa Ivanick is back with this win in Women’s Bodybuilding. Last year she competed in Women’s Physique at the 2021 Chicago Pro, where she placed 7th. So we think she made the right decision to come back to the Bodybuilding division. Although there were only five competitors in this division, Ivanick led the pack from the beginning.
SET FOR SET congratulates all the athletes who competed at the 2022 Indy Pro. The season is almost halfway over, but the three winners still have plenty of time to prepare for the 2022 Olympia that’s set to take place from December 16-18 in Las Vegas. We can’t wait to see what they bring to the stage.

One of the all-time greats in the sport of bodybuilding, Flex Lewis, announced his retirement on the first episode of his podcast, Straight Outta The Lair. The surprising retirement news came from Flex Lewis as he was speaking with his wife Ali about future plans. Let's get into this major announcement!
The seven-time Mr. Olympian shocked the bodybuilding world when he announced his retirement on Friday during the recording of his podcast. The podcast episode covered numerous topics, including his family’s move to Las Vegas.
Around minute 22 of the podcast, Flex gets to the juice and says, “There’s no real easy way to say this, but it’s time. Bodybuilding has served me well. It has opened up some amazing doors for me, but it is time for me to hang up my posing shorts.”
It seems like Lewis is satisfied with his remarkable career and now wants to move on to a new chapter in life to be present for his family more, as he just recently had his second kid.
During the podcast, we also learned of some health issues facing Lewis; he said it was hard for him to eat as much as he needed to if he wanted to pursue the dream of winning the Olympia in the Open division.
The past six months had been rough for Lewis as he described waking up daily with nausea and dry heaving. He couldn’t pinpoint the exact cause, but now that he’s down about 25 pounds, he feels much better, thanks to a diet change.
At the end of the day, Lewis said he made this decision alone, and it was the right time to walk away.
Watch the full podcast episode below where you can see Flex announce his retirement and future plans
Flex Lewis is a Welsh bodybuilder that holds 7 Mr. Olympia titles in the 212 division. The name Flex actually originated from his childhood when he was 6-year-old playing rugby due to his ability to break tackles.
It was at age 12 when Flex fell in love with bodybuilding. Looking up to Arnold and Tom Platz, he started lifting secretly at home when he found some of his father’s old weights. At 15, he stepped into the gym for the first time and never looked back.
By 19 years old, Flex entered his first bodybuilding competition and won Junior, Mr. Wales. He then went on to win Junior Mr. Britain four weeks after his first show.
Flex moved to the US to pursue bodybuilding and ended up in the mecca; Venice Beach. From there, Flex became close with some of the biggest names in the industry.
From there, let’s look at the biggest wins of his long, dominant career:
We know Flex originally had his eyes set on competing in the Men’s Open at the 2022 Olympia, but he made the smart choice to step away from the sport. With so many deaths coming in recent years, we’re happy to see he put his health and family as his number one priority. SET FOR SET wishes him well and thanks him for the awesome memories and contribution to the sport.

IFBB pro-Derek Lunsford recently took to his Youtube channel with an interesting chest and calves combination workout. Read on to learn a new chest movement that you've probably never done before.
Derek Lunsford is an American IFBB pro bodybuilder that's caught the industry's attention over recent years. He won the 2017 NPC USA Championships Overall to earn his IFBB pro card, then won the Tampa Pro 212 right after that.
Since then, he's competed in the Olympia every year and never finished worst than 5th place. Lunsford won the 2021 Olympia in the 212 division, and he plans to do it again this year.
With his track record, we can guarantee he knows what he's doing in the gym, so check out his chest and calves workout below.
Derek starts the workout on the cable machine as he's speaking to someone off camera. Lunsford says he usually starts with warmup sets of 15-20 reps, but today he's not going over 12 reps.
The first exercise we see Derek perform is the cable chest fly. He does one set standing up straight with slow controlled reps, then the camera cuts to him completing a set of flys where his body is bent over, and he's bringing his arms together down in front of himself.
After a brief posing session, Lunsford's second exercise is an incline dumbbell press but at a slight incline. It looks like he's performing sets of 8-12 reps here. We see him move up in weight with each set.
The first set starts with dumbbells weighing 40 kg (88 lb). By the fourth set, he's pressing 72.5 kg (160 lb ) dumbbells. He said the 10 plus reps he got felt great, and he thought about jumping up 20 lb in each hand, but at the end of the day, he's a bodybuilder that focuses on hypertrophy, not strength.
Derek moves on to incline dumbbell flys, where he executes each rep in a slow eccentric and concentric movement while focusing on squeezing his pecs. After his last rep of flys, he goes right into a dumbbell hammer press.
As the camera cuts to Derek's next exercise, we see an unorthodox setup where he has a resistance band wrapped around his back while holding each end in his hands along with the dumbbell handles.
After he finishes up some reps, he talks about why using the band in conjunction with the dumbbells works so well. He says the band creates extra tension that pulls his shoulders back, so you really have to squeeze at the top of the exercise, which is different from a normal dumbbell fly, where the exercise usually gets easier as you bring your arms together.
Lunsford then uses the same technique with the resistance band as we see him completing some decline dumbbell presses with the band. This exercise seems to tax him to the max as he went to failure.
Next up, we see Derek performing bench press on the Smith machine. His technique and form should be noted, as he has his elbows flared out a bit to target the upper chest. He's also trying to get a maximum pump, so he's doing faster partial reps up to 15.
After his chest exercises wrapped up, Derek hopped on the seated calf raise, where we saw him perform 3 sets of 8-12 reps. The majority of the reps done here were super slow on the way up and down until he busted out some rapid-fire partial reps towards the end. He finished off with a dropset where he went to failure.
This is a rare exercise to see in most gyms. It's the opposite of a calf raise, where you'll lift your toes up instead of targeting the tibialis anterior at the front of the shins.
At the end of the video, Derek talks about why he hit the chest and calves on the same day. He then imparts some motivation by saying even if you don't feel like going to work out, sometimes you have to push yourself. He says it's not about ego lifting; it's about coming to the gym and doing the work to improve his physique.
Always focus on form!
We don't know the exact set and rep scheme featured in the workout above, but we'll go with the range he spoke about briefly. This workout is meant to get a great pump, so focus on the form and contraction, not the total amount you're lifting.
Note: Keep 1-2 min rests between sets.
Derek Lunsford is one of the top bodybuilders in the world, and we can see he's taking it super seriously to remain the 212 Olympia champion this year. We loved to see some unorthodox movements like the dumbbells combined with the resistance band, and we can't wait to give it a go!

One of the bigger bodybuilding shows of the year, the 2022 Pittsburgh Pro, took place over the weekend on May 6-7th in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This show saw several divisions compete for a spot at the 2022 Olympia. Below we cover the results of the 2022 Pittsburgh Pro including winners of the Bikini, Classic Physique, Figure, Men's Physique, Wellness, and Women's Physique.
This bodybuilding event is always a big draw considering the athletes, spectators, and guest posers. A few of the sport's biggest names, including current Olympia champs like Nick Walker, Hunter Labrada, and Brandon Curry and Chris Bumstead showed up.
Let's get into the results of the divisions:
This division keeps growing in popularity, and for a good reason, the competition is fierce, and the women looked amazing! We saw Lauralie Chapados take home the title after beating out former Olympia winner Ashley Kaltwasser. This is another big win for Chapados after winning the 2022 Arnold Classic. Kaltwasser also racked up some wins this year at the 2022 Wasatch Warrior Pro and the 2022 Golden State Pro. Needless to say, these two women will be top contenders at Olympia this year.
Alexander Westermeier won this competitive division after showing up with a massive peeled physique. His last competition was in 2020 so winning the title here is a gigantic step in the right direction for him.
This is a big win for Shanice Abrams! She was on the podium at the 2022 Wasatch Warrior Pro when she finished 3rd. So, this must feel great to secure a spot at the Olympia after putting in all the hard work.
Sadik Hadzovic made a splash by winning first place in one of the most popular divisions after taking the past few years off from competing. Hadzovic has the potential to be a real contender at the 2022 Olympia.
Sunny Andrews had a busy 2021 season after competing in seven shows and placing in the top five in all but one, the 2021 Olympia, where she finished sixth. This is a big win for Andrews, who will try to ride the momentum to the 2022 Olympia, where she has a chance of cracking the top five.
Natalia Abraham Coelho is one of the more prominent names in the division, so it's no surprise that she scooped up this win. Last year she won two big shows and then placed second at the Olympia. She has a real shot at winning it all this year!
SET FOR SET congratulates all the athletes who competed over the weekend. This was a fantastic show that produced several top contenders for the 2022 Olympia. We'll make sure to keep our eyes on them as the season progresses.

The Calum Von Moger story just got weirder; allegedly he is in ICU after jumping out of a second-story window while high on methamphetamines. It’s been reported that Von Moger suffered a spinal injury and is still in a coma after jumping through a window and was unable to walk on his own accord. Let’s get into this tragic story below.
Von Moger was once destined for greatness in the fitness world, but his fall from grace has been swift. Calum Von Moger has been traveling down the destructive road for a while now after being arrested earlier this year for an alleged road rage incident and then again on drug charges.
Allegedly, Von Moger was recently kicked out of his family’s property after some disturbances such as robbery and property damage which resulted in first responders being called to the home.
This breaking news came on May 6th, 2022, from the well-respected insider into the bodybuilding world, Nick Trigili of Bodybuilding & B.S. Youtube channel. We trust Trigili’s reporting as he’s a straight shooter when covering bodybuilding news, and he seems to have credible sources all over the place feeding him the behind-the-scenes stories.
Check out Trigili’s video below, where he broke this alleged crazy story of Calum Von Moger jumping out of a second-floor window resulting in him being sedated in the ICU. In the video, Trigili pleads with those closest to Von Moger to help him get to a better place rather than worrying about the optics of his antics.
We thought Von Moger might turn things around after posting an apology while asking for forgiveness on his Instagram less than a month ago.
We can only hope that Calum Von Moger can recover from any injuries he allegedly suffered after jumping out of a window. It’s been disturbing to watch a top fitness influencer/bodybuilder with a great future turn things upside down in such a short amount of time. We will keep this post updated as more information is released.

American weightlifter Hampton Morris won the gold medal in the 61kg class at the 2022 International Weightlifting Federation’s (IWF) Junior World Championships. The competition runs from May 2-May 20th and is held in Heraklion, Greece. Morris landed at the top of the podium after setting a new world record in the clean & jerk. Let’s look at Hampton Morris’ incredible day below.
Hampton Morris proved himself once again as one of the top weightlifters in the world. Morris managed to win with a 116kg (255.7lb) snatch and a 160kg (352.7lb) clean & jerk.
His clean & jerk of 160kg is a new IWF Junior World Record and Senior American Record in the 61kg class. This lift beat his previous best clean & jerk of 156kg and edged out Adkhamjon Ergashev’s Junior World Record of 159kg.
The top three finishers in the 61kg class posted the following lifts, listed as snatch/clean & jerk and overall total:
Morris won the gold medal even though his snatch of 116kg didn’t match up to the other top lifters. If he’s able to improve his snatch, he will be hard to beat.
Watch Hampton Morris' record-setting clean & jerk below:
Hampton Morris is an American weightlifter who holds several accolades, including 10 Pan-American, 17 American, and 3 World records. With his recent performance, he now boasts a 2022 Junior World Championship and 2021 Pan-American and Youth World Championship.
Morris started his journey in weightlifting at the age of 10, then entered his first competition at 12 and within five years became a World record holder. Over the past few years, Morris seems unstoppable as he’s won every IWF event he’s competed in since 2019.
Even though we’re still two years away from the 2024 Paris Games, we’re sure that Morris has his sights set on winning an Olympic medal. It will be interesting to see if he will be able to stay at the 61kg weight class by that time as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reduced the number of spots in weightlifting and changed up the weight classes.
There's one thing we know for sure, Morris will be a force in the weightlifting community for some time to come as he’s only 18 years old and has already accomplished so much.
Hampton Morris serves as a bright light for Team USA weightlifting. He's an athlete with the determination, dedication, and skill set to help level up America’s standing in the competitive landscape of Olympic weightlifting.
SET FOR SET congratulates Hampton on this tremendous win; he’s nowhere near done yet, so stay tapped in!

Two top-tier IFBB Pros, Urs Kalecinski & William Bonac, teamed up to take on an intense, high-volume leg workout. We get to see and listen to the OG Bonac teach Urs how to get the most out of the leg workout throughout the workout. This is one you don't want to miss!
Both Urs Kalecinski and William Bonac are having great 2022 seasons as they both won a title at the 2022 Boston Pro in their respective divisions, earning them a spot at the 2022 Olympia. Then Urs went on to win the 2022 Kuwait Classic Pro.
In the video below, the pair head to the gym in Amsterdam, Netherlands for an evening leg workout. However, Urs tells us that this isn't normal for his routine as he usually trains in the mornings after breakfast.
Bonac is coaching Urs through the workout, teaching him some insider tips on exercise execution of various leg exercises. Bonac is an excellent mentor for training legs because that's one of his best features. The point of the workout is to pre-exhaust the muscles with hamstring exercises, then move on to glutes and quads.
The first exercise the two hit is standing hamstring curls. Urs points out that Bonac performs each rep focusing on the contraction while keeping tension on the muscle the entire set.
The second exercise the guys take on is hip thrusts; this is when Urs surprisingly tells us that he never trains with this exercise. However, Bonac tells him that he will feel the DOMS tomorrow in his hamstrings as much as his glutes if he holds the movement at the top.
The third exercise is the leg curls; William will do the seated version as he's recovering from gyno surgery, while Urs does two supersets of lying hamstring curls and seated leg curls. Bonac imparts some knowledge about positioning your body's joints with the machine to get a proper range of motion with each exercise.
Urs's fourth exercise is the machine kickback to hit the glutes and hamstrings while building up the outer sweep. They speak about this exercise seeming difficult even when using relatively light weights.
Next up is the abductor and adductor machine, where we see Urs hit some slow controlled reps. Urs tells Bonac that he would like to train with him for an entire week as he's learning some new techniques and tricks.
We see Urs do a few dumbbell stiff-legged deadlifts before moving onto the vertical leg press. Bonac gets Urs set up correctly on the machine as it seems Urs doesn't do this exercise often. Bonac mentions some tips to keep the range of motion short while moving in a slow controlled movement.
Moving on, we see Urs on the 45-degree angle leg press machine. At this point, Urs talks about not having the endurance to take on a workout like this. We see each rep with the tension on his leg muscles throughout the set. Bonac tells Urs to do the leg press with different foot placements. To target the entire muscle, Bonac says, "you must hit the muscles from different angles if you want them to grow."
The workout isn't over yet as Urs gets coached by Bonac on how to get set up on the squat belt machine. As Urs is completing his reps, we hear Bonac tell him, "don't overstretch the muscle" this is a common phrase we hear throughout the workout.
This is an extremely high-volume workout that took just over 2 hours, and Urs says he burned over 1000 calories.
Bonac leaves Urs with some parting words that the workout can be even longer and that he shouldn't avoid training his calves. He compares the calves to the foundation of the body and that when the calves are stronger, it helps avoid potential injuries.
The video above doesn't show the entire 2-hour workout with a set and rep scheme, so we devised the leg workout below based on typical hypertrophy volume. As always, make sure you get in a proper dynamic warmup before beginning your workout sets.
Note: Take 1.5-2 minute rests between sets.
It's always fun to see two IFBB pros in the gym together. William Bonac has been in the game for a long time, so we loved the fact he was willing to share his knowledge with Urs as he is just at the beginning of his career.
Don't miss these two on the stage at the 2022 Olympia later this year.

IFBB Pro slash powerlifter Hunter Henderson has done it again; she set a new all-time world record squat with wraps when she squatted 305kg (672.4lb) at the 2022 WRPF FQ Classic. The powerlifting competition took place over the weekend on May 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada. Henderson set the new record in the 82.5kg (181.5lb) class while she was the only female to compete in the raw with wraps division.
Hunter Henderson is no stranger to massive weights and setting new records. This lift was done while Hunter was wearing a lifting belt and knee wraps to aid in the lift.
With her squat at the 2022 WRPF FQ Classic, she was able to best the previous record by 10kg (22lb). The previous record was held by Chakera Ingram. This lift marks the fourth time in history that a woman squatted over 300kg (660lb). Henderson now holds the all-time world record for squat with wraps in both the 75kg (165lb) and 82.5kg (181.5lb) divisions.
Henderson put on an amazing performance at the meet, only missing one lift on her third bench press attempt. She totaled an impressive 715kg (1,573lb) on the day.
Below is her full performance:
TOTAL: 715kg (1,573lb)
DOTS POINTS: 664.003
Watch Hunter set the all-time world record squat with wraps below.
Hunter Henderson is an American IFBB Pro bodybuilder and a decorated powerlifter. She holds 6 all-time world records in powerlifting. Hunter Henderson beat the odds after she survived a battle with cancer when she was just four years old.
She didn’t even know what powerlifting was until the age of 23, and since then, she hasn’t looked back. Hunter competed in her first powerlifting competition in 2018 and has won every event she's competed in.
Apart from being one of the best powerlifters in the world, she also became an IFBB Pro bodybuilder last year when she won the 2021 NPC USA Championships. She’s competed in one pro bodybuilding event, the 2021 IFBB Tampa Pro, where she placed second.
Hunter Henderson is a rare breed that has excelled in both powerlifting and bodybuilding. At only 27 years old, the sky’s the limit for Henderson.
As Hunter Henderson continues to push the boundaries in strength sports, there’s no slowing her down. We can’t wait to follow Hunter on her journey in whatever discipline she chooses to follow, whether that's bodybuilding or powerlifting. Who know's maybe she'll continue to compete in both sports!

This Olympia qualifying event wasn’t the only show of the weekend, as the 2022 Arnold Classic South America and GRL PWR Pro Championships also took place.
The 2022 Warrior Classic Pro saw Brett Wilkin was the guest poser but you’re here for the 2022 Warrior Classic Pro results so check out the full results below.
The winner of the Classic Physique division was Lamar Shaw. This is Shaw’s biggest win in his professional career, and he will now have the chance to compete at the 2022 Olympia for the first time. Shaw also competed at the 2022 Boston Pro and the 2022 Houston Tournament of Champions, where he placed fourth and third, respectively.
Devone Martin managed to win the title in the Wellness division, which secured her a spot to compete at the 2022 Olympia. Devone had come close to winning the 2022 St. Louis Pro when she came in second place. This is a massive win for Devone Martin as she is the first African American woman to qualify for the Olympia in the Wellness Pro division!
SET FOR SET congratulates all the athletes who competed at the 2022 Warrior Classic Pro. With the 2022 Olympia set to take place from December 16-18th in Las Vegas, both Shaw and Martin have plenty of time to prepare and bring their best physiques to the stage.
