The Future Of Bodybuilders (part 3)-winflash

Sports-and-Recreation On 22nd May 2003, a Bodybuilder died. Scott Klein was found lying dead on his bed at 5.00am by his mother. He died of cardio-vascular disease and kidney failure. His death may have had absolutely nothing to do with bodybuilding, but 30 year old men do not die suddenly with kidney failure unless there is some known genetic weakness and, as far as I am aware, that was not the case here. In the same week that I heard about Scott Klein I read detailed reports of the illness of Tom Prince – another great bodybuilder – with ulcers and kidney problems. One of the all time great bodybuilders Lee Priest was soon to announce with immediate effect his retirement from .petition. It had already been rumoured that he had health problems in the past but it was hardly surprising with massive weight swings and an excessive intake of junk food. But anyway he said he was no longer interested in the sport because of what was happening to some great athletes and that in the end we only have our health and that some of the top bodybuilders didn’t even have that. Yet another great bodybuilder Milos Sarchev also withdraw from .peting after having finished 6th at the Hungarian GP and therefore didn’t qualify for the 2003 Mr Olympia. But he also blamed poor health for his early exit from the sport. Milos had been at the top for a number of years and had probably .peted in more Pro contests than any other bodybuilder and even made a .e back after serious injury. But he had also suffered with internal health problems linked to top level bodybuilding and had suffered an almost fatal embolism a couple of years before when he had a blood clot, due to taking Synthol, detach from an artery and cause a blockage in his lung. So many more top level amateurs and professionals were admitting to major health problems. Orville Burke got injured during a photo shot in Olympia and as a result his shoulder and Elbow needed operating on. But due to his poor health, one medical team refused to operate, although another did, but only after getting a report and approval from a heart consultant. Orville went into a .a after kidney failure but slowly recovered although his bodybuilding career is over. Then Mike Francois who had a great physique up until a few years back also suffered serious internal problems, resulting in the end of his career. Nasser el Sonbaty had to withdraw from the Night of the Champions 2003 in New York due to health problems and it is also believed that his career has .e to an end. Then we have Flex Wheeler who has had his pro card withdrawn due to health problems and it was rumoured that he may need a kidney transplant. Another top American Don Long needed the help of his sister to save him when he had to have a kidney transplant. And another top American Ron Teufel from the 70’s died at 45. So we can argue that these deaths may not be drug related and we may be correct, but we are talking about young, strong and fit men who should be glowing with health. But it’s not the case when they be.e seriously unhealthy and in some cases life threatening and leading to fatal illness. I have covered a number of drugs apart from anabolic steroids, which are taken by any .peting bodybuilder but professionals are at the cutting edge of the game. These guys are well connected with the drug gurus who are always on the look out for new material that can push that freaky physique on just a bit more. These products can make the all important difference to muscle size and vascularity as well as to guru’s earning potential. The top guys must possess bodies with potent drug handling genetics in order to handle such high doses and .plex drug cocktails over long periods of time. A pro’s life is controlled by his sport and his earning potential. There is a very limited time scale for high earning at the top so during this period a pro needs to maximise earnings, because once they start dropping down the rankings they must take radical steps to keep on course – more drugs over longer periods just to carry on .peting at this level and this isn’t healthy at all. The pro body building scene isn’t really what it’s made out to be. Training is hard and those heavy weights lead to joint problems and in the modern day era heavy means heavy and injuries are high on the agenda. In addition we have a high food intake including high protein content which over works the digestive system, the kidneys and the liver. This deadly .bination causes high blood pressure and ac.panied by potent drug cocktails, the stress factor on the body organs is tremendous. The human body needs rest, but there’s no rest for a pro bodybuilder. In some ways American Football makes similar huge demands on the body. A sport with big men training hard, lots of pounding of the body and games where players get lots of bad injuries. What drugs are used by American Footballers, I don’t know – I can only guess – use is certainly not at the dosage levels of bodybuilders and generally they will get better medical supervision. But American Football is played for only four months each year and eight months is left for rest and recovery. Those of you who are familiar with my column will be quite aware that I am not against drug use and like any real bodybuilding enthusiast; I do want to see even freakier physiques. What I am against is young men killing themselves in the process. It is not easy to say where to draw the line, but I’m afraid to say that since this started forty or so years ago, NOTHING is going to stop us. I have faith in that bodybuilding won’t turn into a lunatic freaks sport, consisting of a small number crazy guys with a self imposed death wish to be.e THE FREAK of the year. Maybe it has be.e this already? It is the old rockers motto incarnate. Live hard, die young and have a good looking corpse. On 22nd May 2003, Scott Klein died. Is death the only real future for the Bodybuilder? About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
