I just knew in my heart that.. I’m gonna shock the world. I saw this kid backstage with this great physique. He had all the tools to be the best and I knew it was just a matter of time before he would be up there. He goes like ”Hey man are you sponsored?” I said no.. He said you should be. And I was like Jay Cutler talking to Phil Heath? Jay wasn’t talking to nobody.. He goes.. Phil I see everybody around the world I wouldn’t tell this to anybody. I was like c’mon man don’t bs me.. He’s like, no.. I believe. Phil is one of those guys that has all the right tools And with the right heart he’s a very dangerous bodybuilder. What sets him apart from the rest is the fact that he’s got genetics.. He’s coachable and he’s also got the drive. So when you stack those three things together you get someone who is gonna progress very very quickly. Sometimes it’s not about the battle, it’s about the war.. And the war is to become Mr. Olympia The fact that he’s obviously very genetically gifted.. I mean that nickname of his The Gift fits him to a tee. He’s probably the most genetically gifted bodybuilder I’ve ever worked with. And I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of bodybuilders. I kinda know what it feels like to have all these emotions of different placements. And now there is only one more spot to go and that’s to be number one. At the end of the day I definitely want my name to be called the new Mr. Olympia. I try to visualize it a lot. Just expect it to be a war.. And Phil Heath is ready to fight. Coming to win. I got 5th.. I’m not 5th.. But I was tonight and that’s just the way it is. That’s bodybuilding. I just gotta bounce back.. The measurement of a man is not how he wins It’s what happens when he loses, and what you do after that.. So we’ll see what kind of a man I am. One rep, one set, one workout closer. I remember after placing 5th I was like.. I’m never gonna feel this way again. I don’t wanna feel like that again. So I wanna be so good… That people remember my name as being one of the top guys. I was very confident because I just knew in my heart that I’m gonna shock the world. I just remember Jay shaking my hand and saying ”You’re the king now.” When he said that I just realized you know what.. He’s right. If I believe in it, he’s right. If I don’t believe in it, anything can happen. I can lose this next year. I just so told him this is your time, this is what you always wanted. At the end of the day.. My best will always be good enough. It will always be better. And if there’s anyone who wants to challenge it.. I’m not playing around. The critics are gonna doubt you.. Even the fans that used to be fans of you, are now your enemies.. It’s my job to remind them who the champ really is. Let’s show the freaking world how great I am! Just the fan that he was, he’s now living his dream.
