Jean-Pierre Fux ( or "JP" as many friends call him, and by the way, his last name is pronounced "fooks" you potty mouth) exploded onto the international bodybuilding scene during 1996 with his surprising appearance at the Arnold Classic, the San Jose Pro-Invitational and the Olympia. Yet as cartoon-like freaky as his physique is, the man himself is very gentle and intelligent with a clear direction in life. Ask any nonbodybuilding aficionado what type of person he thought JP was by a mere glance at him, and you'll probably get all the usual stereotypical description.

Jean Pierre's accident

Jean-Pierre Lux had a horrible accident during a Photoshoot for Flex Magazine when his attempt to squat 675lbs when horribly wrong. He’s knee’s both gave out on him and the spotters didn’t have time to react fast enough. It was later said when he arrived at the hospital that he had torn his vastus medialis of the left thigh and torn patella ligaments of the right leg. As you can see from the Pictures below, Jean-Pierre had probably some of the worst luck anyone could have had at the worst time possible (in the middle of a photoshoot, although we are lucky to even have pictures of this.)

As you can see from above, Jean-Pierre did whatever he could to regain his strength and stay at peak levels even after his surgery, unfortunately things didn’t go as planned.
