Kenneth Wheeler was born in Fresno, California, USA and has been described by Arnold himself as the most genetically gifted bodybuilder he has ever seen on stage. Kenneth became known as Flex Wheeler when he turned professional and has won the Ironman Pro 5 times and the Arnold Classic a record of 4 times.
But flex did not have an easy start in life, born in poverty and growing up on the streets was tough coupled with child abuse, but always excelled in sports.
Flex started martial arts when he was a boy but only started training with weights when he was a teenager. He started competing as a bodybuilder in 1983 and by 1989 won his first competition, which was the NPC Mr. California Championships.
He has placed second in the Mr. Olympia more than once.

Flex has developed a way of training that uses reps like very few other professional bodybuilders use.
Flex has developed a system that works by using reps in the range of 10 to 20 reps with a heavy weight. Training like this is not something new as we remember Tom Platz doing 20 squats with 500 pounds on his back. Some people have criticized Flex saying you cannot get big without ever going down to 2, 3 or 4 reps in a set.
The training program that Flex uses is nothing fancy or new as he diligently sticks to 5 sets of 10 to 12 reps each and increases the weight by making sure that he gets the best nutrition he can and ensure full recovery before the next grueling workout.
Flex Wheeler uses in a four day split routine training each body-part twice a week.
