Johnny Jackson speaks with Dennis James about his gym opening, staying in shape since his retirement, the Chicago Pro (which was held in Atlanta due to covid restrictions) and his conditioning.
Johnny also talks about his opinion on those wanting to compete in multiple divisions like Shaun Clarita and competing against guys 100lbs heavier than he is, as well as whether he would compete in a new Masters Olympia division if it was brought back.
"I eat McDonald's, man, you know what I mean? And genetically, I was able to, you know, have a nice body had nice shape and stuff like that, and then train. It was really easy. I say 'easy.' It's not 'easy,' but it was kind of easy for me to look good."
"My brother passing away, his passion was what drove me."
"My first few years. I did eight shows in each year. You know, for at least three years in a row....It's insane. To get in that condition over and over and over again, man it's insane."
Johnny Jackson also talks honestly about the heartbreak of friends and bodybuilders passing away this year.
Johnny is a master and a legend who has been in the sport for forever.
