  • Phil Heath

    I thought this pic of Phil next to Flex was pretty crazy. Flex has that "bubble" look and a smaller waist but Phil is much tighter (not a Flex trait).

    Also, the pic of him with Jay Cutler strikes a chord with me because this is the first time Phil competed here in Colorado in 02. I had won the lightheavies in this show the year prior. I was backstage where this photo was taken (I don't recall who took it) and was witness to Jay meeting Phil and asking him what national level shows he had done. When he answered none, Jay was floored. Of course, from there they became friends and Jay helped to get Phil a Weider contract before Phil ever turned pro (doesn't happen very often). Phil turned pro only 3 years from this photo and the Sandow was won 8 years after that photo.

    Love the stories behind bidybuilding. Most times it is portrayed as these big tough arrogant guys grunting like meatheads and not the fact that go to most gyms and someone you don't know will help you out with a spot or go out of their way if you want something. That is my experience anyway.

      @ Phil / Flex: Wow. Cut from the same cloth.

      @ Phil / Jay: Talk about fulfilling one's potential. Blows my mind how far Phil has come in < 10 years. Amazing.

      Thanks for sharing.

          Saw Phil for the first time since his win tonight at the gym. He was still doing a photoshoot but it was laid back so we shot the shit a little bit. I probably haven't spoken with him that much in more than 6 months. I'm thinking it was probably when he, Jimmy and myself were in Michigan for the show that we sponsor. That was back in April.

          Oh, and he still looks RETARDED.

              I'm pretty sure I heard he's guest posing at the Lackland Classic this year, hopefully, I'll get a chance to meet him as I hear he is very cordial and down to earth...

                Very easy guy to talk and chat with. We ran into each other at Qdoba and ended up BS'ing over our meals for 30min.

                  I spoke with Phil at the 07 Rocky Mtn BB show then didn't see him again until the 08 CO State and he remembered me from the 07 show, which floored me. He's very humble and down to earth and makes time for ALL of his fans and you don't get the generic spiel that a lot of pros give. He's been my favorite pro BB since he turned pro.

                      I think what he is saying is that most pros aren't terribly open to talking and being honest about things. Most of what they say is rehearsed as they tend to say the same things over and over in response to the same questions (half of the questions they get they are asked over and over).

                      Phil is a pretty genuine guy so I have rarely seen him patronize someone.
