Head and Shoulders Above

The 10 shoulder-training rules followed by 4X Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath.


Let’s say you’re Mr. Olympia. Just dream for a minute. Your life is a whirlwind of airports and interviews and strange gyms in stranger places. And all the while, you’re a marked man. You’ve got the title everyone wants, so the world’s other best bodybuilders are gunning for you workout after workout, meal after meal. What do you do? How did you stay on top? Two ways. You eliminate, as best you can, your weaknesses—those areas your closest competition could possibly exploit. And you enhance your strengths—those areas you can exploit over those same top contenders.

This brings us to Phil Heath’s shoulders. What was once a deficit is now a surplus. We should also mention the head on those shoulders, because the changes happened and continue to happen only because of meticulous planning and methodical execution.

The Gift uses the following 10 techniques to both overcome a narrow structure and enhance the 3-D density his delts’ and traps’. Eliminate weaknesses, expand strengths, rinse, repeat, over and over. For Heath, this approach wins poses. And, ultimately—it wins Sandows.
