3 Keys to Success from Phil Heath
What can we learn from Phil Heath’s success in bodybuilding? You’re about to find out. Here are 3 keys to success from Phil Heath, thanks to Venture Beat:
1. March to the beat of your own drum
Heath has been able to avoid injury throughout his professional career by training intelligently. He has been criticised in the past for not training with as heavy poundage as say the legendary, Ronnie Coleman, but it would be a mistake to fault Heath’s work ethic
2. There will be ups. There will be downs. Hold on tight.
Heath took a sensational third place in his first Mr. Olympia competition in 2008. He joined the ranks of the great Lee Haney and Dorian Yates to take a top three placing in a first attempt at a Mr. Olympia and became the first rookie to place in the top three since Flex Wheeler in 1993.
The next year, Heath was pinned as a favourite to take the Mr. Olympia title. A day before the Friday pre-judging, he caught a stomach virus which caused him to stand in front of the judging panel 10 pounds lighter than intended. Heath ended in a disappointing fifth place that year.
3. The media will talk. Accept it, but remember that you’re in control.
Heath’s approach to the media is spot on. “As far as pressure goes, I stay away from media. I let them talk about me winning or losing. It’s not rocket science. They are going to talk about me winning or not winning. I can’t be concerned about other people. I’m just being the best I can.”
Phil Heath is one of the richest bodybuilders in the world, and his latest victory to give him seven Mr. Olympia wins is truly inspiring. Phil Heath’s net worth in 2019 is $5 million dollars.
