Phil Heath Has Some Major Competition Issues!
- Before we get into that, we can talk about who Phil Heath is.
Phillip Jerrod “Phil” Heath was born on December 19th, in 1979.
We all know by now that his is one of the best bodybuilders of all time, and that he won 7 Mr. Olympia titles!
- If he wins 2 more and is able to get 9 titles, he would have more Mr. Olympia titles than any bodybuilder in history.
Without giving you the entire life story of Phil Heath, there are just a couple things you should know that will help explain his competition problem.
Phil Heath was a Division 1 basketball player in college, that could not make it to the NBA!
This is not to talk bad about the guy, playing Division 1 basketball is also a huge accomplishment.
If you are not a 7 foot monster, you need to be an elite athlete to play hoops at that level, trust me it’s not easy!
Unless you live under a rock, you know that making it to the NBA is extremely hard, you can check out the NCAA recruiting stats!
- The point is that Phil Heath is a competitive freak, that was not able to be a top athlete in basketball.
He decided to turn to a “sport” where he know he could excel.
Why did he turn to bodybuilding?
Phil Heath turned to bodybuilding because there is no sport on planet earth he could be the best at, aside from bodybuilding.
- This is because other sports require natural talent. Bodybuilding requires crazy people with extremely low self esteem that are willing to take insane amounts of steroids that could cause death (and have).
On top of that, also eat insane amounts of food, way beyond what a person needs in order to live a healthy lifestyle.
Phil Heath Has Competitive Issues
Phil Heath can’t possibly be a normal person, and is not a normal person.
- The insecurity it takes to be Mr. Olympia is insane.
The competitive drive it takes to be Mr. Olympia is far beyond healthy competition.
“Phil Heath is risking death by his lifestyle, all in order to get some sort of a stupid rush of having the biggest muscles on earth.”
- Most people don’t understand how messed up in the head you have to be, and the issues you have to have in order to be a bodybuilder.
Phil Heath Should Not Be A Role Model
“Phil Heath would be a great role model if he wasn’t a steroid and illegal drug maniac.”
If you are a person looking from the outside in, and are not really into bodybuilding, you might see Phil Heath as a really big, healthy, and strong bodybuilder.
- You might go online and read Phil Heath’s workout and diet programs, hoping you can get some great advice.
The truth about Phil Heath leads to nothing but disappointment.
He is nothing but someone suffering from insecurity, and drug addiction.
- That is it my friends. Sorry to say that, but that is the truth.
Why should people look up to Phil Heath?
Why should kids try to be like him and read his workout plans and diet plans?
- They shouldn’t. If he looked amazing without using steroids, then that would be a different story.
You can just tell by looking at his eyes, that his veins are full of chemicals, ranging from pre-workouts to steroids.
- If you compare his eyes and pupils to someone that is on crack cocaine, they would be the same!
Phil Heath underwent surgery to repair two hernia’s that he had in his abdomen.
There was one above his belly button that was two inches wide where his upper intestines are.
There was also one in his lower intestines which was an umbilical hernia.
- It was torn so bad that it left a 3 inch hole and approximately 4 inches of his intestines hanging out of the hole.
That must’ve been extremely painful!
The doctors fixed both hernia’s and apparently the lower intestinal hernia was life threatening.
What’s interesting is Phil had both hernia’s before he won the Olympia.
So that means that he trained hard, and had to stuff down all of the food that’s necessary to maintain his body mass all while he had a hernia.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that top bodybuilders often train and compete with bad injuries, hernia’s, illnesses and still win.
- Not only do they have to train hard and eat with laser focus, but they can have setbacks and obstacles that can make it even harder to move forward.
That said, it gives you even more proof that this guy will do whatever it takes to be number one.
- That sounds good in other cases, but doing whatever it takes in bodybuilding can be deadly.
Phil Heath definitely has some serious personal issues that will cost him some major pain in the future.
Conclusion About Phil Heath
I am sure that Phil is a cool guy if you get to know him. Why do I say that?
I have no idea, most professional bodybuilders don’t like him as a person, and say that he is arrogant.
- That said, they are in a competitive sport, and I am sure there are a lot of haters out there that are mad because he beats them every year.
Bodybuilding is an extremely hard sport, and everything I did say in this article is true.
You really have to have some mental problems in order to compete at that level.
- It is not for everyone, and hands down the hardest sport on planet earth. There is no questions about it.
People that truly feel like they have something to prove are in this sport.
The average hight for a bodybuilder is probably around 5’7 at best. They are all short!
I am a fan of the sport, but I am not a fan of these guys selling diet plans and workout programs without telling their fans and followers that they are using massive amounts of steroids!
