This is a story about Helmut Strebl. If you’ve not heard about this man before, then let me remind you that he’s the same ripped guy whose pictures are seen doing round on the internet, accompanied with captions like ‘world’s most ripped man’ and Mr. Shredder. A look at his pictures and you can’t contest the names given to this man. His extremely low body fat percentage is a testament of what can be achieved with decades of hard work and dedication coupled with good genetics. He has competed and modelled for almost two decades now and is well known for his motivational speeches apart from a godly ripped physique. Here’s his story.
Helmut is not a usual bodybuilder who gets into shape before an event. He maintains the same level of conditioning throughout the year. He weighs 205 to 215 at a height of 6’3′ all year round with a body fat percentage of around 4 to 5 percent. He is a bodybuilder and a model by profession who has competed in many events and even featured in a music video with Madonna.
He first competed at the Mr. World 1996, where he ranked 11th. The same year he went on to become Mr. Austria 1996. Thereafter he appeared for many natural bodybuilding competitions like Muscle Mania and European Natural Bodybuilding Championships. He has even won these titles more than half a dozen of times. His latest trophy was that of the Miami Pro World Championship, 2014. In the same competition, he was also crowned best muscle model over 40.
