He refused to listen to friends and family telling them he was 'invincible and limitless'.

On the one hand, I feel for the guy.  It's fashionable to say thing like that, to convince yourself that you can achieve your dreams, body-wise.  On the other, Jesus, what a farking idiot.  Learn the difference between sore and pain, between working out weakness and overtraining.  And for Fark's sake, don't take drugs that can eat away at your organs.

I do wish, though, that I could get myself addicted to cardio.  Or at least to where it's not a godawful "Holy FARK am I DONE yet???" experience.

Did he finally beat The Ayatollah, though?

To be fair, when I was twenty, I could only get three strokes in before I orgasimed.

He was 5´2"?

Was he trying to compensate for something?

Zyzz r00ted a Thai lady-boy and when he found out he topped himself. The internet told me.

"His mother, Sarah Cooney said she and her husband Simon wanted their son's death to drive home the message that steroids can kill."

Except using steroids doesn't kill you, just like any other drug its the abuse that kills you.

Also there is no reason any kid under 20 should be using steroids, if they are then they are just morons.

It's too bad he left behind such awful photos.

Woo was it that said "short people got no reason to live"?

Dude was 5'2. He wasn't going to have a normal life anyway, apart from the occasional Wizard of Oz play.
 
2014-04-02 09:43:52 PM
Didn't he even have a muscle pic, so we can see if it was worth it meanwhile?
 
2014-04-02 09:45:45 PM
I was addicted to steroids in 6th grade. Thank god for Ben Affleck and that after school special or else I too would be dead.

Plenty of short guys have gone on to lead prominent lives... Napoleon, Dr. Goebbels... uhm....

Talk about some cringe-worthy selfies. Looks like a total tool.
 
2014-04-02 09:47:30 PM
He looks like he was a douchebag... The world is better off without him.

He really dropped dead over the shame that his instragram account only had four followers.

If I was one of his pallbearers, before I lifting I'd say, "can you spot me?"
 
2014-04-02 09:49:05 PM
This is my plan for living forever:

1. Avoid strenuous exercise. It's a killer, even without being hit by a truck.

2. Avoid deadly health foods, especially broccoli.

3. Avoid drinking so much water so that I collapse and die.

4. Avoid sleeping regular hours because that's just a recipe for a slow death.

5. Avoid the country because it's nothing but a healthy grave.

6. Enjoy more than a touch of what I fancy.

As Mark Twain explained, you have to have vices to give up when you are sick. Without that padding you have nothing to give up when you fall ill and you will die. I don't smoke but I have a lot of other annoying habits to keep me amused at the expense of health nuts and fitness freaks.

I bet he left behind a kick ass Affliction shirt collection.

It's funny because his poor self-image lead to his death and he's not female

hahaha I was just thinking that. I bet he had lots of jeans with swirly shiat all over the farking pockets too.

It would have been funny if he were female too, because most female bodybuilders look ridiculous.

Regarding getting "addicted to cardio"... Why cardio specifically? I'm assuming you're meaning just wasting half an hour on a treadmill or elliptical or something like that which I agree is boring.

Do some powerlifting instead. Squats and deadlifts are huge for vo2 max gains. And it's fun to lift heavy stuff.

If you aren't familiar with those lifts, get a trainer for a few sessions to teach the basics (or if there is a _good_ box in your area even look into Crossfit for a month or two - that'll definitely get you training to feel a runner's high plus the camaraderie tends to help you come back, and show you how to do all the major compound movements)

But as far as lifting goes look up starting strength, and cube method as simple ways to get started on a program that you don't hate going into the gym to do.

Also regarding Crossfit, please note that I said will show you how to do them. No mention on the quality of the movement, that is entirely up to the quality of the coach - which I have seen trainers in globo gyms show people some pretty bad form as well. Do your research.

point of order.  Doctors often prescribe steroids for legitimate medical purposes.  Presumably some of those involve people under 20.

I read ebooks or browse fark when I'm on a cardio machine at the gym. Keeps my mind distracted, though sometimes I have to take a break because I laugh too hard. Ymmv
 
2014-04-02 10:02:42 PM
Yeah, sure, if you want to be flabby and unhealthy, like everyone else.
 
2014-04-02 10:03:27 PM
Your heart, depending on genetic factors, etc., doesn't care whether that extra weight is muscle or fat. When it's had enough, you're farked. This guy (and I) found out the hard way.
 
2014-04-02 10:05:32 PM
Add bodybuilder to the stack of types I don't want to come back as in my next life.

Also, getting behind a nice behind is a great motivator.

This summed up the article:

TFA
Just a month before his death he wrote on his own Facebook site: "Some guy in the gym saying he's had a chest infection so he hasn't trained for a year I'm like ha (sic) ive (sic) heart attacks, strokes, heart failure only 3 months off. like a boss."

I quit "cardio" for walking with a bit of sprinting thrown in. Lost 40lbs and am in the best shape of my life, or at least post high school life. It works.

I'm a former competition power lifter and a classic endomorph. I build muscle fast, but hold onto fat like a polar bear. I like the lifting part of my gym time, but I absolutely hate anything that involves cardio endurance. Believe me, I have tried everything to make cardio enjoyable. Walking, jogging, rowing, indoor, outdoor, kettlebells, biking (stationary and real), even German Volume Training... It sucks. I'd rather lift heavy stuff, and I've never been able to lose fat doing that. Mostly because if I eat low enough calories to lose fat, it takes muscle with it and I feel like crap.
