Thread: The Next MD cover: Heath Wave.

    Default The Next MD cover: Heath Wave.



    The next MD cover: Heath Wave

    When Phil Heath stepped onstage at the 2011 Mr. Olympia contest, ousting Jay Cutler from the throne, history was made. Phil’s rock-hard physique cast a huge and formidable shadow over the Orleans Arena, raising the bar a few notches and ushering in a new era of competition. Jaws dropped as “The Gift” set a new standard for size, shape, and conditioning, and reshaped our vision of what it means to be Mr. Olympia – like Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler, and Dorian Yates did in years past. We had officially entered the “Phil Heath era” of Mr. Olympia competition, and Phil Heath would be the man to beat in the foreseeable future.

    At the 2012 Olympia on September 28 and 29, Phil Heath and Kai Greene battled it out and were the clear standouts of the show. Everyone expected Phil Heath to be better in 2012, after knocking King Cutler off the top of Mount Olympus the previous year. Many people had crazy expectations because of his dramatic improvement of the past. The closer Phil gets to his ultimate potential, the more subtle his improvements will be. As Peter McGough, MD’s special Features Editor said, “It’s difficult to improve on a souped-up Ferrari.”

    I spoke to Phil a few weeks after the Olympia. He seems more determined to be his best ever at the 2013 Mr. Olympia. Any bodybuilder who plans on putting a stop to the Mr. Olympia “Heath Wave” has his work cut out for him. Phil Heath is a very gifted athlete – that’s why he’s called “The Gift.”

    Peter McGough presents a personal, blow-by-blow account of Phil’s victory and triumphant second win. Check it out in the January issue of MD, on sale November 27th.

    Kuclo was on the cover of the September 2012 issue. At 26 years of age I would consider Steve a young up and coming pro.

    Heath covers are the best. Is there any chance of a Sergio cover next month?

    Great cover! I believe that shot is from the 2011 Olympia, if I'm not mistaken.

    Hope to see an awesome shot of Sergio Oliva on next months cover of MD

    I believe the victory pose of Sergio from Essen, Germany would be a fantastic cover.

    Thanks. Yes. No. I want to, but taking my time. Just turned 20 years old couple weeks ago so I want to maximize my youth growing a bit more.
