Everyone always has that one person in their life that just always take things to the next level! Watch this tutorial to see which bodybuilders that decided to take things wayyyy too far! Even by the standard of many bodybuilders, Gregg Valentino has been considered a bit excessive. While he trained naturally for years, he eventually began to take steroids, but even that wasn’t enough for him. He decided to inject his arms with propionate and Equipoise, which is what morphed his body.
Into what looked like a cartoonish action figure! Now, okay, injecting your body with oil and and drugs is already dumb enough, but in Valentino’s case, he apparently would reuse the needles he was injecting his arms with. As a result, he got a really bad infection and his biceps, which grew to an ungodly 28 inches, actually exploded. Seriously, his arm filled up with pus and exploded the same way your zits did when you were fifteen. To add insult to injury, Valentino spent time in prison for distributing illegal steroids.
To other people. He messed up his life and body for reasons that only seems clear to himself! At the height of his career Andreas Munzer was among the most prolific bodybuilders in the world, and was known for how shredded he can get. Traveling the globe for competitions, he became well known and well liked among his peers. But unfortunately he had been using a dangerous regimen of steroids, including a potassium reducing drug that basically reduced his body fat to almost zero. On the surface that might actually sound like it’s actually f**cking awesome, but it’s.
Really not good at all for your body because fat is essential for energy and survival in general. Having dangerously low levels of bodyfat can cause kidney, heart and organ failure. Tragically, steroid use is what s believe ultimately killed Munzer on March 14, 1996. At 31 years of age, Munzer passed away, and an autopsy determined he died from multiple organ failureâ€¦.likely due to his use of these drugs. Born as Aziz Shavershian in Russia, he became known on as Zyzz after he and his family moved to Australia.
Though he was known to have been a skinny kid, he took up bodybuilding as a teenager and quickly became well known through YouTube and other social media avenues. He was also a model, trainer and stripper.so renaissance man probably isn’t the right term, but he still did a lot of stuff. Anyway, Zyzz had built up a massive following online of people who adored him. He had become a brand unto himself, as he started his own protein brand, his own clothing line and a book called Zyzz’s Bodybuilding Bible. However, many people speculated that he used steroids to achieve his statuesque appearance.
In fact his brother was arrested for possession of anabolic steroids in 2011. Fueling this controversy was Zyzz’s tragic death in 2011. At just 22 years of age, he died from a heart attack while visiting a sauna in Bangkok. Despite how polarizing he was at times, many of his fans made emotional tributes their icon. Dean Wharmby was a bodybuilder and personal trainer who seemed to be popular among his peers.
Unfortunately, he developed some really unhealthy habits. For example, like many people on this list, he used anabolic steroids for years, and would consume more than 10,000 calories a day. However, after s found a large tumor on his liver, he stopped using the drugs and started restricting his calories in an attempt to naturally heal. He also attempted to recover using medicine and spiritual healing. During his treatment, he started a Facebook page called â€œDean’s Journeyâ€� where he chronicled his health problems, his attempted recovery and urged others to stay away from.
