Is Bodybuilding Healthy?
When we think of exercise, gym and fitness, its usually all about health right? Going to the gym & workout is healthy. Keeping a strict and balanced diet is healthy. But what happens when you start going to the extremes – like hardcore bodybuilding? Does the strict diets and extreme training lead to an even healthier life? Or is it all too much for the heart to take? And what about when you start throwing in the supplements and drugs that many bodybuilders use – the answer gets even more and more muddled.
It seems like bodybuilding is growing more and more dangerous. You see many bodybuilders are suffering from different health problems and unfortunate deaths. IFBB Pro Dallas McCarver & social media star Rich Piana are more of high profile cases, but bodybuilders on every level of the sport lost their lives.
Now in a shocking incident, a newlywed 34-year-old amateur bodybuilder Vinayaraj in a district level bodybuilding competition being held at Mangalore city of India collapsed after he suffered a heart attack.
The deceased bodybuilder Vinayaraj had taken part in the first round of the competition and was about to participate in the second round when he suffered an acute heart attack and fell down. He was immediately taken to a hospital, where he was declared dead.
While all the information isn’t available at this time, it does seem somewhat suspicious that a man at 34 years of age would pass so suddenly.
Check out the following video courtesy of YouTuber Shreyas Kamath which explains the details of the unfortunate incident.
