Kevin Levrone is returning to competitive bodybuilding. We heard the rumors back in December - rumors that Levrone had requested an invite to the Arnold Classic - but we didn?t believe them. Now, we?re hearing them again.
This time, from the man himself. Appearing on Pro Bodybuilding Weekly on Monday, Levrone announced his return to the sport. Sort of. We think.
?It?s definitely in my plans to return to bodybuilding and win a Sandow,? Levrone said on the show. ?Just like it was in my plans to turn pro. My ultimate goal is to win a Mr. Olympia and that?s what I plan to do. But I got to get started on it very soon, because the clock?s ticking.?
How long would it take to get back into contest shape? ?Eighteen weeks,? Levrone said.
When pressed by hosts Dan Solomon and Bob Chicherillo, on whether or not he could be ready for this year?s Olympia, Levrone answered, ?Definitely. I never trained all year round for a Mr. Olympia or any of my competitions after I tore my chest. And I do think I could be ready for the Mr. Olymipa 18 to 20 weeks from now and walk on stage probably around 245 pounds, the same way I left the stage in .?
