Bodybuilding legend Flex Wheeler is currently recovering from an October 2019 emergency surgery which resulted in a partial leg amputation, and he’s documenting the whole process on Instagram.

Widely regarded as one of the best bodybuilders of all time, Wheeler’s newest self-imposed fitness challenge is getting into “the best shape possible” by his 55 birthday on August 23. To make that goal happen, Wheeler has been hitting the gym daily, showing fans how he has adapted his fitness routine in the last several months to fit life as an amputee.

One video posted to Instagram on June 28 shows Wheeler working out on a leg press, impressively pressing weight with his left leg and prosthetic right leg.

“I will not be denied,” Wheeler captioned the video. “Let’s go.”

Another recently posted video shows Wheeler using an elliptical, slowly and steadily moving at a constant fluid pace.
