Dennis Wolf, also known as 'The Big Bad Wolf' is a pro bodybuilder with German roots who has proven himself to be one of the top bodybuilders of his era. He is most known for his small waist and large outer quad sweep. At his peak, his stats are 5'11'' and 260 pounds at contest, and 300 pounds in the offseason.
In this article, we will shed more light on Wolf and talk about his life, successes, and steroid cycle. This is an update of an article done on him from 8 years ago that can be found here
Wolf was born in 1978, in Tokmog, Kyrgyzstan to a German family. He grew up poor and did not have much food, but his father worked hard for little pay. He focused on his studies and dreamed of a better life one day. In 1992, his family moved to Germany and he had to learn the language and adjust quickly as a teenager. In his late teens, Wolf worked as a painter for 70 hours per week and spent his free time playing sports. He got into bodybuilding at 18, being inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger, this led to him joining a gym with a friend. His friend gave up after a few weeks but Wolf was getting good results and fell in love with it.
Wolf started to prepare for his first competition with the help of a coach. In 1999, he got 2nd place in the heavyweight division at the NRW Newcomer Championships. The next year he won the competition outright and his mind was set to become a professional bodybuilder.
PFor 5 years, he competed in over a dozen competitions as an amateur, before getting his pro card at the 2005 IFBB World Championships earning 1st place overall.
Wolf was very popular in bodybuilding during the decade from the mid-2000s to the mid-2010s. He competed in 30 shows. He won several shows including 2007 Keystone Pro, 2011 Australian Pro, 2012 EVLS Prague Pro, 2014 Arnold Classic, and 2014 EVLS Prague Pro.

Here is a promo video and a day in the life of Wolf published in late 2017.
Wolf wanted to win Mr. Olympia and came very close with consistent top 5 finishes. Unfortunately, that dream came to an end in 2016 when he announced he was going under the knife due to his spinal injury. His doctors said he had a nagging injury that kept getting worse due to his years of hardcore training and to correct it his last option was surgery.
Afterward, he took a full year off, and then started prepping for the Arnold Classic in 2018, which he placed a very disappointing 12th place. This was the end of his bodybuilding career. He blames a poor prep for his bad showing and said he only did it for his fans.
Damage to discs are normal in bodybuilding and can be extremely painful making simple things like sleeping, walking and sitting very uncomfortable. Spinal discs are rubbery pads between the vertebrae, making up the spinal column. The outside of the discs are made up of tough and fibrous membranes, while the inside is made up of a jelly like substance.
As we age, the discs become less elastic and they become more prone to injury. Once you have a herniated disc it is important to take time off from weight training or the problem can become chronic and make your life miserable. This is why it is important to do yoga, stretch, and take time off from the gym especially if you hammer your spine.
You can find many Wolf videos on Youtube of him training, his channel views are large.
His Instagram has almost 1M followers and he markets several industry brands including gym80, Schiek Sports, and NP Nutrition.
He also offers coaching and training.

You could say that Wolf believed in overtraining just like many other pros of his era. During his peak, it was routine for him to train 30 sets per workout. He followed a 4 and 5-day split, alternating muscle groups and usually doing 2 per session, blasting his specific body parts into oblivion.
He has some specific principles for his training.
- Free weights are mandatory
- Quality of his workouts are important
- 10-12 rep ranges on most muscles
- Planning workouts are crucial
- be better and keep your workouts changed up
- This is a fun video of him blasting his triceps.
Wolf kept a tight waist by eating extremely clean. He knows what it is like to not have food on the table as a child growing up, so he treats food as a blessing instead of a treat.
During the offseason, he ate 6-7 meals per day including a lot of chicken, rice, steak, potatoes, oatmeal, and bananas/apple.
In season, he ate 4 meals per day including fish, oatmeal, eggs, nuts, and greens.
He has said in interviews that he hated eating like a bodybuilder but had to do it to compete with his peers.
Wolf has not admitted to steroid use openly which is understandable. Living in Germany, he likely had somewhat easy access to anabolic steroids and probably started to use them at a young age. Here is a steroid cycle we speculate he could have used during his peak years leading up to competition:
- HGH 15-25Iu's per day
Human growth hormone (also known as hgh, somatropin, nutrobal, nutropin) is a peptide hormone which stimulates growth on the cellular level. It is a protein which has endocrine functions in living animals and is synthesized in cells from amino acids. Read more...
- Insulin 10-12Iu's per day
