    Rich himself always spoke openly about knowing the risk of what he was doing and said he accepted the risk and any consequences that came with it.That being said he’s still passed away to soon.Also thank you for all the advice and knowledge I learnt from your videos,very much appreciated.R.I.P

  68. If you’re not competing get off the juice or at least run a reasonable stack. Piana carried way too much body weight, muscle or not and it and the drugs stresses the cardio system.

  100. Any one else think these two deaths are probably linked to the pressure of being ready for the Olympia ?
    I don’t know if they compete (I know rich didn’t anymore) but he did expo so its a big revenue stream.
    Maybe they push to hard on non steroids (insulin , DNP , diuretics etc)
    If I stood to earn a years wages (probably hundreds of thousands ) from how I looked in a few weeks I might take a risk to .

    I know they are saying choking in food for the younger guy but there was talk of maybe a mistake with an insulin shot to (rumours )

    • Does it fucking matter?!?! Two men are dead and two sets of families, friends and love ones are suffering right now….who gives a shit what your “rumors” say?!?
      Do you go on every fat persons obituary and start taking about how being obese leads to death?!?!

      Small minded fuck!!!

    • Dallas mccarver had potential to become an Mr Olympia , but in no fucking way did rich piana , rich took huge amounts of juice although he didn’t even compete so that in itself was pointless, and had pmaa infused arms …also his physique wouldn’t even win a national show , he’d be lucky to win a amateur show at best. Rich was a promoter of the bodybuilding sport and a entertainer and he did that in a very good and successful way.

    • Social media pressure

    • Alex Prajisteanu lol

    • Dallas wasnt doing the olympia this year he was taking a year out to progress for next year

    • Thanks for the replays fellas , I was hoping it wouldn’t cause any hard feeling .
      I think I watched a video where rich talked about trying to compete but admitting he couldn’t get his body to respond no matter what , but won mr California back years ago ?
      I didn’t know who the other guy was (apologise for that)

      But if he wasn’t comparative this year wouldnt he be making the effort to look sick at the expo side of the Olympia , I’m sure they can earn big money and it’s an opportunity for future Sponcer’s to see you and meet you ?

      Anyway a side from
      My ignorance in the bb world it’s a huge shame they died no matter what the cause .

    • No. Neither was competing this year

    • Rich always did crazy things. He did compete many years ago but after his highest ever placement was 10th he realized he just wasnt cut out for olympia and retired to supplements and his own brand and also became an entertainer of sorts. He did bring a lot of knowledge and exposure to what used to be considered the secret side of bodybuilding.

      Dallas collapsed at the Arnold Australia earlier this year from an upper respiratory infection that mixed with his contest prepped body actually hospitalized him for several days. After that he said he was going to change everything and take the rest of the year off from contests to get straight. He has been having breathing problems all this time and if some food went down the wrong pipe mixed with that and no one is around to help him its quite reasonable to see how he choked to death.

      I dont know if Rich has passed or not but he was a really good guy overall and always made time for the fans. When he was away from the cameras he was very knowledgeable and quite funny and very easy to be around. I met and talked with him on a few different occasions. If he really has passed its another sad instance. He always pushed himself past normal limits and the reports all say that he passed out and hit his head. If he had not hit his head Im pretty sure he would have been alright. My prayers go to both families.

    • M.e. O’Brien-Hughes tyrants for the information and reply .

    • Dustin Soest ok

    • He overdosed on cocaine and Dallas choked on food, neither death had anything to do with “pressures”. Rich took ridiculous amounts of steroids and growth(more than any pro’s take) and was not a healthy guy

    • One was choking to death on food the other was overdosing and being in a coma.. so no..

    • Richard Lovato thanks yeah a few have said now , I’m not a body builder so not that Clued up .
      Everyone knows who rich was I think.

    • The thing with taking insulin is, it actually doesn’t add any statistically significant muscle mass, only fat.

    • James Fiddler I thought it was “the most anabolic substance on earth ” or is that one of those things that sounds great but is actually crap .
      Seems to big a risk to me . But I have no ambition to be huge or compete

  167. It would be helpful to the current and budding enthusiasts of bodybuilding ,if the real and precise cause of deaths are known otherwise we could expect more of these news in future.Rich was a energetic and motivating man , let his soul RIP.

    • All the reports said he passed out and then hit his head. I think thats why he was placed in a medical coma. If he did pass its most likely from that injury. Im sure all the other stuff added into it all but I think the head injury is the most likely thing that actually killed him. Head trauma deaths are much more common than people think.

    • M.e. O’Brien-Hughes may be that’s what happened and if the official reports are exposed it will surely throw a light on many allegations. Loss is a loss, let’s hope all gets better with his family and closed ones..

    • He overdosed on coke, had heart failure then fell and hit his head.
