All good things must come to an end and so will Phil Heaths bodybuilding career. I predict that the 2015 Mr. Olympia will be Phil Heaths last bodybuilding show. Now, there are a couple of factors which are affecting my prediction, these factors are:
1. Aging Physique: No human can maintain their prime forever. All bodybuilding pros show aging on their physiques later on during their careers, not even Frank Zane could maintain his physique. I am sorry but its just pure science and not a knock on Phil Heaths physique. His midsection is growing and his arms are shrinking, it happens to all the pros! For example check out Ronnie Coleman’s prime compared to his last step on the bodybuilding stage and you will see what I am talking about.
2. Company Change: Phil Heath was sponsored by Muscle Tech for a very long time, however, earlier this year he made his own supplement company called Gifted Nutrition. The move away from Muscle Tech shocked many but Phil Heath is a smart he knows once he steps away from the stage the steady pay cheque from Muscle Tech will cease to exist. By making his own company, Gifted Nutrition, Phil Heath can monetize his fans and has a chance to make a steady income for decades to come.
3. Catching Up: Many competitors are catching up to Phil Heath and if Phil Heath screws up during his prep phase or gets an awful injury, it is lights out for him.
4. Health: Bodybuilding can be a very dangerous sport once you reach the competitive level just like Phil Heath did. Phil Heath is a smart man and you can be sure health is his number one priority.
