There’s a video which was recently posted where Phil Heath was training arms and he’s looking as swole and lean as he usually does 6 weeks out from the Olympia. But Heath has not yet confirmed that he will be competing this year, and fans are getting really anxious to know if he’ll actually try for record eighth win which would tie him with Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney.
Check out the video of Phil Heath training and in really good shape below…
In the video below, Heath looks like he would be right on time to compete at the 2019 Olympia. He’s huge (Although we wouldn’t expect that to change) and rather lean for someone who wouldn’t be trying to tie an all-time record.
And we think Phil Heath really does want to make history, although we don’t know what it’s like to be in his shoes. But his loss to Shawn Rhoden last year was probably devastating for someone who was on top for seven years straight.
Shawn Rhoden’s participation is still uncertain after he was accused of sexual assault last month. Big Ramy did not compete this year so he’s out. And Kai Greene probably won’t be making an appearance, although you never really know, seeing as the competition has dwindled down to a few elite competitors.
He already got the special invitation as it has been done before so it’s a possibility that he’d give it another try after placing second to Phil Heath several times.
Brandon Curry is one of the favorites this year after winning the 2019 Arnold Classic. He placed fifth at the 2018 Olympia but is showing the most impressive improvement as of recently. Roelly Winklaar came in third (Behind Phil Heath) last year but after a disappointing Arnold Classic finish of which he was the favorite to win; we just don’t know if he’ll be title-worthy by bringing the conditioning.
Then you have William Bonac who is a top contender as well and could battle with either of these guys.
But there are a lot of fans who are rooting for Phil Heath to come back and win another one. It would mean a lot for his legacy and there’s no better time than now to do it!
