It’s difficult to be critical of Phil Heath. He’s thick, massive, and contest shredded. He’ll probably make a comeback and win the Mr. Olympia in 2020. Other bodybuilders in today’s top 10 are built a lot like Phil. And maybe that’s the problem.
Today, there’s seldom a standout physique who really commands attention. Plus, these guys don’t look approachable.
For example, Ronnie Coleman and Dorian Yates would welcome you for a chat or visit. Sergio Oliva was a hoot in person. He would laugh with you and enjoy a hamburger or two.
Lee Haney always had a smile on his face. Arnold and Franco were fun to be around. Steve Reeves would roll up his pant leg and contract his giant calf.
You just don’t get the feeling that the current group of Mr. Olympia contenders would welcome the T-Nation readers. Maybe I’m wrong. I hope so.
