If there is one thing that Phil Heath has shown over the years, it is the he loves his 1am training sessions. He put that on display again recently, while working his arms in the gym.
There is not much left to be said about Heath, which is not already written. As a seven time winner of the Mr. Olympia, his success and accolades are both well documented and highly respected.
When he decided to take some time away from competition, following his second place score at the 2018 Mr. Olympia, some feared that this could be the end of his career. However he finally made the return in 2020, where he landed in the third place position at the Olympia, behind Brandon Curry and Big Ramy.
As it currently stands, the future is a little uncertain for Phil Heath, as he has hinted at a possible retirement being incoming. That being said, even if that is the case he is still staying active in the gym.
This was put on display recently, when the bodybuilding legend took to the gym for one of his famous late night training sessions. In the video that he posted to Instagram, you can see his gigantic arms working through some dumbbell curls, and machine curls, looking absolutely insane.
“Good Morning! I’m here at @armbrustprogym finishing up my 1am training💪🏽 thought why not come on here and shout out to my brother @armbrustdylan for always bringing in new equipment,” Heath wrote.
“If these walls could talk, as there has been MANY crazy training sessions here lol I’m always thankful to call @armbrustprogym my second home. Wishing you all a great day!”
Heath has been known for his enormous arms, but it never ceases to captivate when watching him train. He is a little bit hesitant to share updates to his social media, so every time he does, it is worth watching.
This was not the only recent update we got from Phil, in terms of his training. Just before this, he shared a clip from a different session, again showing off his arms after doing some work on his shoulders.
Time will tell when the next time we see Phil Heath on stage will be, but fans would certainly love to see him compete again. While he certainly has nothing left to prove to anyone, he does still have a lot to offer the sport, and could likely still win many shows, even the Olympia.
