Josh Lenartowicz: From obesity to a world class physique.

Pro bodybuilder Josh Lenartowicz has been through a lot in the last couple of years.

From losing his best friend Dallas McCarver and missing the 2019 Mr. Olympia due to health reasons.

Lenartowicz’s health situation turned for the worse and his 2020 contest prep was put on the shelf.

Probably the best gift that Josh could have ever received was when he became a father to William.

Josh went to his social media to post three progress photos that will surely inspire anybody in the fitness industry.




The first photo was taken on 1 January, 2020. Josh was heavily overweight and he looked nowhere close to the world class physique he had just a year before.

With the determination to get back to his best, the second photo shows Lenartowicz’s massive improvement after he lost 45 pounds.

28 days later, Josh had another photo taken and he is already looking in fantastic condition and on the right track to compete at the 2020 Arnold Classic.

In a span of 56 days, Josh went from literally being obese to have a world class physique.

This is proof that anything can be accomplished, even when you have everything thrown at you in terms of negativity and problems.

Stepping on the Arnold Classic stage is already a victory for Lenartowicz. Whatever the outcome, Josh is the winner anyway you look at it.

The top stars in the industry praised Lenartowicz for his inspirational comments.

This is the inspirational message from Josh Lenartowicz:

My health comes first. Last year I missed the @mrolympiallc due to medical reasons, I sat in the audience and was so let down I wasn’t up there to bring my best. As soon as I got back to Australia I started prep for the 2020 @arnoldsports only to realise my craniotomy didn’t heal correctly so it needed to be redone.

November hits and I’m in the best position for prep but health comes first so I go in for another craniotomy which was successful, I get the all clear from my neurosurgeon to train so I do @dohertysgymdandenong the next part rocked my world. I remember paramedics telling me I had a post operation seizure in the gym so I’m on my way to the hospital. I’m prescribed dexamethasone, seizure medication, pain killers, antibiotics etc. Within weeks side effects from these medications transformed my body into the first photo taken January 1st 2020…I’m not proud and didn’t want to post it but what’s more important is the people this will inspire and that lives more in alignment with who I am.

After weekly appointments with my neuro team I’m given the all clear to compete which brings me to my second photo which was 28 days later and 45 pounds lighter, I suffered and struggled my way there, am I better…no….will sitting at home make me better…no…will pulling out of the Arnold’s change anything for the better…no….can I inspire my son and many others along the way by not quitting….yes, so no matter the pain I was all in. With coming off some of the medications and results coming faster I teamed up with Patrick Tuor @ptuor as team work makes the dream work which brings me to my third photo taken 28 days later, I know the best is to come and better days are ahead.


I leave for Ohio on Monday and as my first year being sponsored by Black Skull USA it would have been very easy for them to drop me as an athlete, instead they have stood with me through this, just like @dohertysgym have since 2015 and now @iron_tanks
With having my son William last year I’m more obligated to be a better version of myself and I want the thank everyone that has given me strength, encouragement or distraction from the pain specifically my wife, family and friends.
