Easily one of the most successful bodybuilders on our list, Kevin “The Maryland Muscle Machine” Levrone is a member of the IFBB Hall of Fame who has also found moderate success as a blogger, actor and musician. Making his professional debut in the 1991 NPC Nationals, Levrone competed in nearly 70 IFBB competitions throughout his 12-year career and won a whopping 23 titles. The two-time Arnold Classic winner and four-time Mr. Olympia runner-up wrapped up his career in 2003 after taking third place in the Show of Strengths Pro Championship.
Known for bench pressing an upwards of 600 pounds, Levrone’s steroid use led him straight to the operating table in the early 1990s after tearing his pectoral muscles. Despite never officially retiring, the uncrowned Mr. Olympia eventually turned to other opportunities and made his acting debut in the 2006 film Backlash with additional appearances in Redline and Burning Hollywood. Now 51 years old and sporting a “dad bod,” Levrone made a huge announcement in May 2016 when he confirmed he was training for the 2016 Mr. Olympia competition. We can’t wait to see his transformation!
