Phil Heath hints at making a return to action.
The internet is just chock full of surprises. One day you think a respected bodybuilding champion is retired, the next he Tweets something that turns your expectations upside down. Phil Heath dropped a Tweet that now has many speculating on a return to action for the seven-time Olympia champ.
After taking third place at the 2020 Olympia, Phil Heath has been pretty quiet. There has been little in the way of training footage of the seven-time Olympia champ. After all, Heath was never one to put too much of his training online. But it would seem that with the Tweet he made and some subsequent training footage being featured on his Instagram, something is clearly in the works.
Making a Return?
The speculation was sparked after a recent Tweet Phil Heath made last week. In the Tweet, Heath hints at making a return of some kind in eight weeks time.

While this could mean just about anything from a guest posing to an appearance, some have speculated that the former Olympia champ is aiming to compete at the Tampa Pro. The show does indeed line up with the timeline that Heath mentions.
Phil Heath has also been hard at work in the gym. If a competition or a guest posing is in his future it would make sense that Heath would be building his body. Here we can see Phil Heath hitting arms with gusto.
