Congratulations to Phil Heath, the winner of the 2016 Mister Olympia contest, who was able to take the most steroids and growth hormone without dying onstage or having his intestines burst out of his bloated belly.
Anyone who is “shocked” that I am lashing about against the Mister Olympia contest and winners clearly know nothing about me. I have always worked to help people become healthier and more fit and the Mister Olympia is the polar opposite of everything I have worked for. These contenders are filled to the gills with steroids while denying it and pretending to be the epitome of health when they are actually only a few heartbeats away from death with their sky high blood pressure, damaged livers and kidneys and enlarged hearts (very dangerous condition). I know they have “worked hard” but I don’t respect diamond thieves or terrorists who “work hard” either.
Events like these only serve to promote unrealistic expectations in millions of youth and put their focus in all the wrong places. During a Q&A of the top contenders all kinds of horrible, dangerous, and misleading info was given including the fact that “cardio isnt necessary”.
