So, it’s happened again – another “athlete” bites the dust because of a brain aneurysm from bodybuilding. A blood vessel becomes overpressured and finally goes “pop,” and your game is over.
The general media and social media have reported this as a tragic, unusual, and unexpected death.
The truth is far from that.
Athletes and the general public who constantly overtrain commonly suffer heart disease, heart attacks, or aneurysms.
Some survive, but many do not.
These sad events are mostly kept quiet or reported as freak accidents.
Why is that the case?
The fitness and sports industries do not want you to know the risk and strain many of you put your heart and brain under by frequent heavy training – no matter what sport.
One of the media’s headlines says:
“Jo Lindner death: YouTube bodybuilding star known as Joesthetics’ dies from aneurysm’ aged 30.”Independent.co.uk
A comment in the story reads:
“Another one of Lindner’s friends, known as Vigorous Steve, posted a YouTube video shortly after his death, explaining that the cause of death reports were based on preliminary findings.”Independent.co.uk
“We’re still waiting for the autopsy reports,” he added.Independent.co.uk
Here’s a similar story from the bodybuilding world:
“After spending two weeks in an induced coma to try to reduce swelling to the brain, Piana died on August 25 at the age of 46. An autopsy revealed “significant heart disease” and that his heart and liver weighed over twice the average amount for an adult male.Wikipedia.org
The reason for these people’s premature deaths, because of heart attacks and strokes, is clear – massive overtraining!
Here are the facts – please read the story in the link below:
“Heavy lifting or straining can cause pressure to rise in the brain and may lead to an aneurysm rupture.”American Stroke Association
The autopsy report of Joe Lindner’s death won’t state what the American Stroke Association says. It most likely will call it unfortunate and bad luck. Who knows? We will see.
Is this outcome a surprise to anyone working in the health care and medical profession?
Not to me.
I’ve said it 1000 times, and I’ll keep saying it:
• Bodybuilding and intense weight training ruin your heart and eventually kill you.
• Any overtraining without understanding the pressure you put on your heart and brain with the excessive cortisol release will end badly with a heart attack or stroke.
Please read the story I wrote on this subject just a few days ago:
I Don’t Lift Weights Yet Have A Lean And Fat-Free Body — Overtraining Is Risky and Be Very Harmful To Your Health
My statement and warning apply to all sports if practiced to the extreme.
Please google: How many athletes died of heart failure in 2022? Train smart, not hard!
To make it easier, I did it for you. Take a look at the following headline and story:
“Up to 80% of athletes who die suddenly had no symptoms or family history of heart disease.”Europan Society of Cardiology
I have made my point, again.
Exercising, working out, and playing sports are all great and highly recommended for living a healthy lifestyle.
However, too many folks, trainers, and fitness industry players take it way too far.
Please do not fall for the hard and heavy daily training trap in any sport or form of exercise. There’s no doubt – bodybuilding will ruin your heart and very likely lead to premature death.
If you do, you’re only harming your heart and putting your health and life at a massive risk.
Train smart, not hard.
