New motivational video is up on the channel.
I think that Phil has the look, the physique, the mindset, I think he has the fire in the belly to be a champion, which is something that he wants to do for the next several years. So I think we’ll have the next Ronnie Coleman.
I think the main motivation for me with the whole bodybuilding history experience is knowing that there is no such thing as the perfect body, but I’m gonna chase it as hard as I can.
Hard work beats talent all the time. When talent actually works hard, it’s over. There is nothing that the other person can do about it.
Let them follow you, you don’t have to follow them. So if I try to change up my training system …. why? Why would I change? I am who I am, they are who they are. They might try to change to what I am doing because I have proven that it worked. I am the leader, I am the man, not you. Me and that’s OK because I look good.
I’m not gonna lie, I mean I kinda like knowing that when I win, not only I beat them on stage but off stage too. Because I know I am covering every angle to be better than them.
You are trying to take your body, and sculpt it to where everything is in proportion, everything from right side to the left side is equal and just being a true work of art.
“IF YOU WANT SOMETHING YOU NEVER HAD BEFORE, YOU GOT TO BE WILLING TO DO SOMETHING YOU’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE.” I was told that long time by a coach.
That’s what I live by.
I wanna be two times Mr. Olympia. I have to be willing to do whatever it takes. You know the record is 8 Mr. Olympia titles, held by Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman, Arnold won 7, Jay Cutler won 4. I am already the best at what I do, I had to ask myself a serious question which is ‘Can I get any better than what I just did?’.
And the next day at a photo shoot I knew I don’t like the way I looked right there. And people would say are you crazy, you just beat everybody with a perfect score.
But in my heart I knew, I was like ‘Phil this is just the beginning. Your legacy is not going to be dictated on winning one Olympia, is going to be dictated on how many.’
