Alexey Lesukov

So, I just watched this video and wanted to share. Any thoughts as to how well you think he’ll do in the future? I was really impressed by the picture of him next to Heath, if I’m correct. The kid’s limbs are definitely his strong points. Figured it would be nice to discuss training-related stuff rather than argue. Here’s the video, guys.

Huge arms but I am definitely not a fan of his chest… Not at all.

He’s a freak for his age, that’s for sure.

One of the few bodybuilders I’d still follow.

His conditioning at comps is typically atrocious. He also doesn’t look too great next to others on stage (only partly due to the lack of conditioning). Imo, more show than go for now.

Super impressive, but IMO not a very aesthetic look. He’s got great density and huge-ass quads and upper arms, but his limbs appear really short and his torso is kinda strange, although I can’t put my finger on it.

I don’t mean to be a hater, just chiming in.

Ah, just re-read that I should discuss training-related stuff, sorry! :slight_smile:

Is he still an amateur? He’s been around for years now making a splash but I’ve never seen him shake things up like he’s always supposed to do, and if he’s still an amateur I’m wondering why?

He is a pro. His first pro show was the Nordic Pro and his second was the Arnold Classic Europe.

Could you elaborate on his chest please? I’m just wondering as I’m not so familiar of what constitutes a good/ bad chest apart from size and definition.

Well it’s all subjective and personal opinion I guess but his lower chest is too thick and “boob-like” IMO.

It’s probably just the way his chest is shaped (genetics) but it’s not a look that I am a fan of. This isn’t to take anything away from the guy but it’s just not a look that I find appealing.

Understood. Cheers.

That dude has some of the craziest muscle bellies and insertion points I’ve ever seen. His biceps damn near start at his wrist.

He just never comes in competition ready. He looks like he is guest posing at every show he does.

^^^ I could see that. Don’t know a lot about bodybuilding, but he definitely doesn’t have the look of the bigger names. He’s pretty young though, isn’t he? Hopefully he’ll eventually put it all together. He looks almost like that photoshopped image of “the bodybuilder” that was floating around a few years ago. Unreal.

I feel exactly the same way about his chest. In some pictures he looks fantastic but in others…not so much. His belly is quite distended at times too especially when viewed from the side. Hate to say it but if he were 2 inches taller he could have the perfect body. He seems a bit ‘boxy’.

He has never came in conditioned except when he was an amateur which is fine since he’s so young, he thinks he has to compete size wise with the big boys when really if he got shredded he would dominate some of the top tier guys ( not top TOP tier but big names).

I think his nipples are huge and with the insane chest denesity that he has it makes him look like he has tits.
BUT I think he seriously has one of the greatest chest in bodybuilding and thats saying something.
