There's a lot of buzz surrounding Phil Heath as the 2010 bodybuilding season approaches and with good reason. With the '10 Arnold Classic around the corner, a Heath victory may signify the beginning of the year of "The Gift." Heath took fifth at the '07 Arnold and made a leap to second in '08. With the Arnold being his first show this year, we'll find out if Heath is ready to take the reigns at the March 6 event in Ohio.
For those curious about how Heath has been mentally prepping for the '10 season, you should know he hasn't let any hype get to his head and that he's determined to remain focused in order to come back strong from a disappointing fifth place finish at the 2009 Mr. Olympia.
"In 2010, I want to target my hamstrings and delts," Heath told flexonline.com "I've been able to bring up my chest and back, but I feel that adding more mass to my delts and hams will bring forth an even more complete physique. To achieve this, I am doubling up on workouts so that they receive enough attention. Also, I will ensure that eating enough protein and taking more glutamine and BCAA's will allow my body to recover faster."
