First place and Phil Heath
American Phil Heath is one of the most successful man athletes in this sport. This was a very good competition for him, and you can tell that he worked hard for this. The only downfall is probably his abs, which hadn’t seen as good as previous year. This was one of the best final in the history of this sport. And this was the consecutive title for this man from 2011. Phil Heath started bodybuilding back in 2002, and in 2005 he started winning prize after prize.
Second place and Kai Greene
Kai Greene also had one of his best finals ever, and he gave Phil Heath the winner of this competition a run for his money. He was the leanest competitor in this competition and also a crowd favorite. That is why he won Fan’s Choice Award. He promised that he would compete next year and try to win a title. He was also second in 2012 and 2013 competition. Kai Greene started competing back in 1994, and he is one of the well-known names in this sport.
Third place and Shawn Rhoden
Last year Shawn Rhoden won the 4th place, but that didn’t slow him down, and he came to this competition better than ever, which has won him third place, the first time in history. Keep in mind that he is 39 years old! He put a lot into this competition which has shown on the stage.
Fourth place and Dennis Wolf
2014 competition was marked by rivalry between Dennis Wolf and Shawn Rhoden, but we can say Rhoden was better as he later won third place. We could see the disappointment in Wolf place when he came to accept his 4th place.
One thing all the top bodybuilders have in common is the fact that they need vast amounts of protein in their diet to help provide the energy needed. Although they try to get most of the daily protein needs from the food they eat, this isn’t always possible and here lies the need for a protein powder supplement.
