In a candid and far-reaching interview with Bodybuilding.com
, Heath discusses his mental and muscular show prep, his relationship with Jay Cutler, and more.
READ IT: http://tinyurl.com/philGETBIGThat's one thing some people are critical of when they see your videos online—that you don't train crazy or lift heavy like, say, Branch Warren. Do you think that is accurate?
I think I train hard and heavier than what most people think. I'm not trying to train with massive amounts of weights. I'm also not trying to get hurt. I think if they watched my DVDs and see the pre-online content they'd see more of it. When I'm close to the show I use mostly machines to not get injured. In my off-season, I'll train heavier but I'm trying not to get hurt. I train as smart as I can. I'm not concerned what others think. I do what works for me. Do you ever watch the UFC and follow your fellow Team MuscleTech athlete Jon Jones? Think he'll win this weekend?
Yeah, I do watch a little. When I get a chance I do watch. The thing is, I don't have much time. When it comes to him I know he's going to win. I don't want to say I'm not interested, but it's a lot less interesting knowing he will win. It's becoming "Who can beat him?"
