Check out this video to find out more about Sergio Oliva Jr
Sergio Oliva Jr. is on a mission to become one of the greatest bodybuilders in the world. And he has teamed up with Labrada Nutrition to help him reach his lofty goal. Sergio Oliva Jr. has quite the bodybuilding legacy behind him. His legendary Cuban-born father is three-time Mr. Olympia Sergio Oliva who was one of three men, and the last, to beat Arnold Schwarzenegger in a bodybuilding contest. His mother, Arleen Garrett, is a former three-time world female bodybuilding champion and Ms. America who had a remarkable ten year career herself.
His pedigree doesn’t intimidate the Chicago-based super-heavyweight, but it makes him more determined to leave his own mark on the sport of bodybuilding.
“I was 20 years old when I started training in 2004. I ran track and played water polo in high school. What may surprise people is that my dad, Sergio Sr., was actually against me bodybuilding when I started. Not only did he not want me to compete but he didn’t even want me working out, lifting weights, none of it. He felt I should focus on other things instead. I was pretty set that this was what I wanted to do with my life though, so I did it anyway. When I first started lifting, I weighed 140 pounds. Three months later I had put on 30 pounds of muscle. The following year, I competed. When I set my mind to doing something, I’m going to find a way to do it so there’s no stopping me.”
Sergio Jr. has won four titles thus far, including the NPC Northwest Florida, NPC Panhandle Showdown, NPC Midwest Iron Man, and NPC Southern USA. He recently placed third in the Super-Heavyweight class at the 2014 NPC Junior Nationals.
The 29 year old put on 25lbs of muscle over the last two years, transforming his physique while climbing through the light-heavyweight and heavyweight classes at his competitions. He now competes as a Super-Heavy packing a heavily muscled 250lbs on his six-foot frame. Sergio Jr. sports the same trademark Oliva arms and legs that made his father famous.
“I feel another strength is my mind and my drive. I never settle. Nothing is ever good enough for me. I also don’t rely on the fact that my name is Sergio Oliva and I have this bodybuilding heritage behind me. If anything, I work as if it’s held against me and I have to work harder to make my own mark on the sport. That not only helps me improve as a bodybuilder but also in all aspects of my life, and will help me better represent Labrada Nutrition.”
“I know Labrada’s supplement line well, so as a representative of the company, I’m confident that I’m able to explain the supplements with detail and knowledge. Drawing on my experience as a personal trainer, I can help customers and fans of Labrada meet their goals. I feel that’s important. I also know how big of an opportunity this is because Lee Labrada hasn’t had the need to sponsor any bodybuilders because he is his own athlete. He’s a former Mr. Universe, Mr.Olympia contender, and IFBB Pro Bodybuilding Hall of Famer. So for him to work with me is a huge opportunity that I want to take full advantage of. I wanted to be a part of a top company that I felt would be supportive of me over the long term. Sport supplement companies come and go, but I’ve never heard a bad word said about Lee or Labrada Nutrition, and this is a company that’s been around for almost 20 years. That’s saying something.”
“In my opinion, there is no better company to be a part of than Labrada Nutrition.”

His mother, Arleen Garrett, is a former three time world female bodybuilding champion and Ms. America who had a remarkable ten year career herself. This doesn’t intimidate the Chicago-based super-heavyweight, but it does make him more determined to leave his own mark on the sport of bodybuilding.
