    So tragic. For his Mum, Dad, girlfriend, other family friends and fans. Yah gotta see your doctor. I don't know what he was taking or not, but your health has to be monitored by a doctor. Ours is, and was saved several times by doing so. And age is not always a factor.

    This is quite sad. Unfortunately most strength building routines don’t push the cardiovascular system hard enough to recognize problems and the diet for strength building especially cycling can be very unhealthy. Just imagine how high the blood pressure gets if the heart has to pump through all those expanded muscles mid lift. Studies have shown that many firefighters have an increased risk of heart attacks during their strength training.

    I would give that guy the benefit of doubt and don't assume he was juiced. Even if he did, it's unlikely that alone would have killed him. Maybe he had a heart condition? Maybe he used a drug in his night out that put further stress in his cardiovascular system?

    If you're wondering how can such a young man have a blocked artery, you must read this: https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/premature-heart-disease

    An autopsy coroner's report would be needed to determine the exact cause of death that precipitated this young man's fatal heart failure. It appears that one wasn't performed.




    Here's a boy as young as eight who died of cardiac arrest:

    We don't know anything about this twenty-five year old bodybuilder. Did he smoke (heavily)? Have a heart defect or family history of heart disease? Was he partying with hard drugs? The father expressed that this son (the victim) was complaining of heart palpitations the night before he died. So who knows?

    You should certainly lay off 'em. You're a poster child for roid rage.

    Sounds like he consumed too much protein on a daily basis.
