Nobody thought about the ultimate price to pay for reaching the pinnacle in bodybuilding. With anabolic steroids other drugs such as prohormones, HGH, insulin contributes to health issues. The major issues we are seeing is the heart failure, massive heart attack, heart problems. This video list famous bodybuilders and coaches who died at a young age (most are in their 30’s and 40’s, some are in the 50's). This video hopes to be an eye opener for youngsters who want to look good and achieve greatness.
"Most guys think nothing bad will ever happen to them. But you watch. You'll be seeing more and more serious heart problems, and worse, once these guys hit 40."
– Mike Matarazzo, pro bodybuilder.

A 2012 Report published by the American Journal of Cardiology concluded the heart-related death to anabolic steroid abuse. Another report from Journal of the American Society of Nephrology looked into kidney and liver related disease among steroid used bodybuilders. Is mixing anabolic steroids with prohormones and insulin making worse?
Since steroid abuse and deaths are commonly related to bodybuilding. There should be extreme care and wise thinking before going to steroid track(Please don't be a dead bodybuilder !!).
This video is a tribute to all who give life for bodybuilding. We miss them very much and may they rest in peace.
Music: Sad and Dramatic Music- Apocalypse-Ross Bugden
Looks like nobody really has die of the using steroids but of organs failure which runs naturally ...go see how many humans die of organs failure and dont even take steroids or go to the gym whats then the excuse ....try to brainwash it with the music not working for a logical thinker but will work for those who dont understand the human body and just take others words with no knowledge ...good luck planet of the stupid
Here we have a gallery filled w dead people w the lesson: don’t take steroids. It’s astounding that people still do this, and insulting these people’s lives, as now their only point to it was to convey the danger of steroids. Don’t do it
Once you start shooting anything into your body with a syringe, you start loosing your old self, and if you're weak minded, you'll eventually want another sort of highs, and that's were hardcore drugs come in. When you train heavy, injuries are bound to happen, and you get painkillers you train even harder because the painkillers are blunting the pain, and once the affect wears off, you need a higher dose and once the painkillers stop working for you, the next painkiller is heroin, acid, as r combos of anything and everything. It's an endless cycle, till your body stops completely.
TRAGIC! I can tell you a story about a good friend of mine because he is dead. I met Kevin in 1974 when he and I were recruited to play collegiate football. We both got hooked on powerlifting in the off season and had one of the best S&C coaches in the country writing out programs and competing with us. Dianabol CIBA's were the first steroid to hit the market and we had a M.D. writing prescriptions for it. Nobody knew shit about roids at that time in my state. The entire powerlifting team got ahold of their first Rx and experienced tremendous gains. I went on 3 cycles and bailed out and Kevin got into powerlifting heavily. I left the state to work after college and Kevin became a vice cop. Other friends tell me how well Kevin was doing. He went to the Pan American Games and was eventually ranked in the top five in 3 weight classes in the U.S. HEAVY into gear! Kevin loved women and got himself mixed up in a triangle that put him into a constant state of anxiety and stress. One day, when Kevin was in his 30's, he was on duty and asked his friend of the force to meet him at a cemetery. They sat in their cars and from what his friend said Kevin displayed a handgun he had on the passengers seat and before his friend could get to him Kevin blew his head off.
Selbst schuld wenn man sich so ein dreck reinpumpt...kein Mitleid mit sowas. Es ist ja nicht so wie bei Drogensüchtigen die an einer Überdosis sterben da sie hochgradig krank sind..Nein! Diese Menschen die Steroide nehmen tun dies aus vollem Bewustsein und wissen das sie sich Schaden und könnten jeder Zeit damit aufhören...Kaputt machen um jeden Preis..Und der Preis ist der Tod und die Trauer der Hinterbliebenen...kein Mitleid mit sowas!
Slot of people are commenting at least they died young and pain free that is a very stupid comment these guys have no natural testosterone of their own no balls gut pains from a failing liver failing kidneys failing heart and many other failing organs plus chronic joint pains all over their anatomy so painfree bullshit are 20+ size arms worth dieing over? Absolutely not
It's amazing, just watching the vid I had no idea that the toll reached 36, plus Rich and sadly it won't end there.
This really is great work on your part. It's a subject which has to be brought to the fore. For far too long, the 'everyone knows that steroids and other drugs can be bad for you' attitude has prevailed. It's the same attitude that applied to smoking for many decades. It's only when people are confronted with the dire, hard reality that they wake up and realise they would be better off and live longer without these substances!
It's a long list indeed. Was Rich Piana there?
Not forgetting that those identified in the video, were all famous to some degree. How about all of the ordinary folks who have experimented and come unstuck, Brian's pal below is just one example.
Without the drugs most if not everyone in the video would probably be alive today. The greatest irony surely has to be that with all of the healthy eating and regular exercise those people were on, but for the drugs they would have been some of the fittest, strongest and healthiest people on the planet.
Is it worth the 10 minutes of Fame. The problem is The drugs make you massive, if you do not take them you are not going to win the top shows. If they tell the truth how many Mr Olympia and Universe winners are Natural?? Zero comrades.
First off get your facts straight. I was a friend of nasser and steroids id not kill him. The open public and government trying to ban performance drugs are pure ignorance at it's finest. But they will give every dickhead in America a legal marijuana card because their little pee pee hurts. Why $$$$$$$$$ politicians are dirty fuckers and do anything for money.
“The spirit of man is like an unweaned child which has wandered away and has become lost amongst the rocks and caves. Unless it is found and given sustenance of its life, it will perish.” – The Kolbrin, Wisdom of the Ages, Chapter Two, The Hibsathy.
“Within My creation is My Spirit, which supports it, and this Spirit is the bond between My creation and Myself. No man acknowledges the air because it is still, but when this same air becomes a whirlwind men give it their whole attention. With Me all is real, while with man all is illusion; but man may abandon his illusions in seeking Me, and he will thereby discover reality. I am the Reality Behind the Reflection, I am the Uncaused Cause". The Kolbrin, Wisdom of the Ages, Chapter Fifteen, The Voice of God.
“The fall of man was a fall from loving contact with God into material carnality. The Soul that had shared the consciousness of God fell into unconsciousness by becoming ensnared in matter. The fall severed man from the source of his spiritual sustenance; thereafter his efforts were to struggle back. In his blind groping for God, after the fall he discovered demons and found it easier to worship them than to continue the search.” - The Kolbrin, Wisdom of the Ages, Chapter Five, In The Beginning.
It's not just the steroids. The food they were eating was also killing them. Large amounts of animal products lead to heart disease with or without steroids.Look into vegan bodybuilding, it is way healthier.
Insulin is the culprit of a lot I'd bodybuilders dying also diuretics.both of these are dangerous and deadly drugs.insulin can kill in minutes.even experienced bodybuilders have admitted they have almost died doing an insulin injection and they are experienced in dealing with this powerful drug.so again this is a pro bodybuilders life and they know the risks so people mind your own business.
And this boys and girls serves as a lesson to why you NEVER use steroids, etc.... And if you don’t “get it”, then you’re most likely one who will never learn. Real men don’t need artificial “enhancement”. No shortage of what NOT to be in the world. And you’re never going to “impress” anyone who really matters.
"quadruples in pain and suffering at the end"
how the fuck doesnt make sense to me , not everyone wants to live to 70 looking at evolution and mankind itself living beyond 50 is so extra ordinary that u can rather call it unnatural
i dont want to watch myself get weaker and deflate
i rather get a heart attack with 48 like matarazzo but have lived a happy life...
ofc this is only a viable lifestyle if u choose not to have kids
There are millions that die from leagalized use of alcohol, aspirins, food either overeating severe undereating and of course prescription drugs! But have you ever seen a homeless transcient scavaging through garbage for bottle or cans for the next Steroid shot?
Steroid havent killed them but multiple events.. Nasser was constantly big, big pressure destroying kidneys.. You have to check your self regularly. We all take on a daily bases much letal things then steroids. Steroids are hormons not poison, if you take them normal dosages and check your self you will never get hurt. I am natural bb, but i know much about hormones in order to fulfill my potential. Most of them used recreational drugs also. Did you know that?
Let's be completely honest here, it's not steroid abuse that leads to these deaths. The most common one is using amphetamines and cocaine for weight loss. Second most common is using Lasix pre prep and third is using insulin which can kill you really fucking fast.
There is no doubt that steroids contribute to the hardening of the arteries but even HEAVY users like Arnold are in no more risk than people who eat beef at least twice a week.
This BULLSHIT about steroids started out with "they do not work at all" and after everyone figured out that that was an outright lie all warnings have been negated by the bullshit statement of the past. Now here you are doing your best to continue that trend.
Just shut the FUCK UP. You want to give warnings? Note the problems that are ACTUALLY associated with steroids rather than trying to pull a fast one and blame insulin and methamphetamine problems on steroids.
It's unnatural to be that big that's why these ppl die. It's nothing wrong with being big just do it naturally, healthy and moderately. NO STEROIDS CREOTINES AND GARBAGE. THAT STUFF YEARS YOUR HEART UP. these guys are big but they really very unhealthy
But even though Rich and Dallas died a few months its clear that mostly they died in the past on a regular basis because they didnt really cared about a proper usage of steroid injection. Nowadays the people are more concerned about Health Problems than they were back then.
I don't think gym memberships and protein shakes cause early deaths, they would extend your life if anything... its the fact that people who start training put so much work in and expect steroid-like gains from training natty... they then get pissed off and think it's a suckers deal, they either continue in their misery to the point where they realise actually I look so much better than I did 5 years ago, or they start taking drugs to get to the 5 year point in 3 months, or.. they give up altogether... I for one will stay in the first category, good things come to those who wait, and you cant cheat life.
@ 2:52 - How many times have you seen that picture photoshoped and mangled to become the poster child for countless videos of "bodybuilders who took it too far" or "bodybuilders on steroids", or some other title along the lines of that?
I'd heard it said that testosterone pharmaceutical therapy of the type that would be prescribed for we "older guys" (post-age-60) who are naturally low on their levels is safe so long as certain blood markers are tested for on a routine basis. I guess my questions are (1) Are the gear cycles of the types used by the deceased bodybuilders are different from the type of testo
"therapy" I refer to, and (2) Might the deceased bodybuilders have survived had they undergone the proper monitoring tests? There's been more than one bodybuilder who's made the statement in words to the effect that the builders who have or had all the troubles are the ones who aren't careful. I don't know whether such is the true case, or whether it's just the luck of the genetic draw as far as whose bodies can handle the gear without adverse effects and whose bodies end up waving the white flag. As far as the bodybuilders who didn't survive, it's the ultimate sadness that nonetheless prompts the painful question, "At what price glory?"
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
