What a stupid story. They obviously heard the autopsy came back but they had nothing conclusive to go on or write about so they brought up the pre work out snorting to have something to get peoples attention.
Snorting that shit was probably the Healthiest thing he had done in the last few years compared to everything else.
On a side note Im starting to have Piana video withdraw lol What I wouldn't give for just ONE more vid from the big man.. God Dammit! lol
A very slight chance it might have caused a bad run of tachycardia which then went into v fib, which then went into asystole (cardiac arrest). Caffeine does cause an increase in heart rate and can lead to tachycardia if the dose is too big, that can happen even in healthy hearts.
His heart was not healthy, autopsy showed it was enlarged, and he probably had what doctors would call cardiomyopathy. Ejection fraction was probably compromised. Hearts in this condition can get out of rhythm easier. Right now I have to avoid taking in a lot of caffeine or I will have rhythm problems.
It is probably unlikely, but there could be a link. Did reports ever say he experienced cardiac arrest? I think they did.
Well, the law wouldn't cover that up, no reason to. I can see why the family would, but I think those autopsy reports are made public. If toxicology was run, I bet those aren't public record and the hippa guidelines apply. That could probably be kept secret.
We miss him. Sucks that he's gone. Not a surprise mind you we knew it was a matter of time but still..
I had lost all interest in any kind of bodybuilding lifestyle after Ronnie retired and Rich rejuvenated my interest. Not sure where I go from here
