    As long as your coffin has to be carried by a low loader rather than a hurse because it’s so fucking big you’ve won at life. Even if that life was cut short due to being a big cunt

    Henchness > life

    Personally, I think the impact of social media has been huge
    I'm not for 1 second suggesting its not the drugs
    What I'm saying is that on top of what these people are doing, the extra stress that social media causes can tip people over the edge
    I dont think its a coincidence that these incidents have happened more over the last 10 years, since the birth of IG, FB etc
    Once you put yourself out there, there's literally nowhere to hide
    The constant need to look good 24/7, sponsors, constant criticism, these people earn a living off the back of this so if it fails your livelihood has gone
    Does this mean people are taking more? Probably
    Apparently Rhoden didn't use crazy amounts, this was his 3rd heart attack in the last 2 years since his charges

    Also why i think health checks are important
    Proper ones, not just a blood panel done when you're off every to justify blasting again
    Especially blood pressure
    If you're carrying extra size, your organs need more bloodflow
    If your body has not adapted to this then the only way of getting more blood around the body is increased bp and heart rate
    Thats gonna create extra strain on the heart and then kidneys over time

    I understand the reason for getting bloods done and would never say don’t do it but it’s so cheap, in this country at least to get a proper scan done that I don’t understand why more people don’t do it.
    After my DVT last year I had a full MRI as they wanted to investigate its cause as it came from nowhere. With all we do there’s always a little thought in the mind of possible damage we’ve done and what’s happening inside. Getting the all clear and them finding nothing was priceless to be honest and I’ve never understood why people really pushing the envelope don’t do it at least once a year.

    Exactly
    People spend a lot of money on looking a certain way - gear, food, gym etc
    At least spend a fraction of that to make sure your in good health
    Doesn't make sense to look good on the outside if you're falling apart inside

    A lot of old timers still alive that did a ton of juice and all kinds of crap back in the day. Out living regular people that never touched gear.

    We can only speculate.

    No real signs before. It was about 4 weeks post covid. Woke up in the morning and leg was like a rock so being a twat I went out to walk it off and stretch it lol Ended up 2 inches bigger than the other side, bright red and in agony on every step. It was a blessing as it led to them finding the clots in my lungs via the scan which I would’ve known nothing about and they’d probably have killed me.

    Blood clots are a pretty common side effect of covid. It’s why people have pointed to it being man made as they’ve autopsied people and found them riddled with clots in a far more extreme way than they should be. It obviously can’t have helped being in lockdown, moving less and being on TRT as well.

    Well I'm glad your better now mate.

    Just goes to show tho init, can live a healthy life avoiding any harm and drop dead or get seriously ill, or die in an accident etc... You have fat fucks living all their life no cardio smoking and drinking on top of all the junk food making it too old age, none of us really know what can happen obviously it's best to take precautions but I guess the moral of the story like toucan says is too up the tren and hope for the best

    I know Derek gets flack from some of you but this video is essential watching for all of you who are still trying to convince yourselves that steroids don't kill it's the high calorie salad dressing.
