Bodybuilders Who Took Things Way Too Far

Bodybuilders Who Took Things Way Too Far


We puny humans are never content to accept
things the way they are. And when it comes to our bodies, that counts
double. For some, simply having a working body isn’t
enough. Instead, these folks go for big muscles at
all costs, health be damned. So, to help you avoid the same fate, here
are a few bodybuilders who took things a little too far. “Oh yeah.” “Oh yeah.” “Oh yeah.” “Oh yeah.” “Oh yeah.” Trevor Smith He may have never competed in any professional
competitions, but despite this, Trevor Smith was well-liked in the bodybuilding community. Rather than flex in front of judges, Smith
instead chose to write articles, run his own bodybuilding and supplement business called
Nuclear Nutrition, and coach mercilessly. “Push. Harder. Go faster. Max. Reach over the top. Master your abs.” The thing he’s most famous for is simply being
huge. Smith stood 6’1″, and at his peak weighed
over 400 pounds. Unfortunately, to get that big, he not only
had to train excessively, but also reportedly used steroids. All that extra weight, and the damage done
to his internal organs, meant he was putting an excessive strain on his heart, and he died
in 2004 at the age of 33 after suffering a heart attack. Greg Kovacs Hailing from Niagara Falls, Canada, Greg Kovacs
was a professional bodybuilder of remarkable proportions. He measured well over 6 feet tall, and weighed
anywhere from 330 pounds for competitions, to over 400 pounds in the off-season. You may not be surprised to hear that he was
a heavy user of steroids, hormones, and probably a few other things that contributed to his
superheroic weight gain — all so he could look more or less like a real life version
of this guy: “Abobo wins!” Needless to say, he was huge, physically dominating
his competitors and making them look like children in comparison. But like Trevor Smith, all that extra weight,
and his almost certainly high intake of drugs, did his health no good at all, leaving him
dead from a heart attack in 2013, at the age of 44. (Abobo losing) Andreas Münzer In order to achieve increased muscle definition
without steroids, it’s fairly common for bodybuilders to take diuretics, which dehydrate the body. This has the effect of shrinking the skin
and tissues on the surface of the body, which pull tight around the muscles and transform
giant men into giant anatomy displays. “I’m not satisfied until every vein is forced
up against my skin. Look at how vascular I am, Brian. If there’s one thing women love, it’s a vascular
man.” Andreas Münzer used this technique, but also
managed to reduce his body fat to almost non-existence, resulting in a ridiculous amount of muscle
visibility, comparable only to maybe this guy. In March 1996, Münzer was admitted to the
hospital with severe stomach pains related to organ failure. Doctors tried to operate to stop his internal
bleeding, but couldn’t save him due to the extensive damage he’d done to himself. An autopsy revealed numerous physical abnormalities,
including a swollen heart and tumor-covered liver which was described as being a crumbly,
styrofoam-like mass. Not to mention the “hazelnut-sized testicles”. We’ll never look at Nutella the same way again. “Breakfast never tasted this good.” Gregg Valentino According to Elite Fitness, Gregg Valentino
is notable for two things: holding the record for the biggest arms, and being possibly the
most hated man in the bodybuilding community. Unlike most professional bulgers, Valentino
focused on his arms exclusively, making him look like the Marvel Comics character, Strong
Guy. While he managed to get pretty big training
naturally, it wasn’t until he started using testosterone, steroids, and synthol that his
arms grew to an unbelievable 27 inches. All that flexing in front of a mirror distracted
him from observing the basic rules of hygiene. He began to re-use unsterilized needles. “I was an idiot. I dropped a needle on the floor. Blow it off. Stick it in. And you wind up getting infections.” This, along with getting hit in the arm by
a baseball bat, resulted in a very disgusting abscess in one of his arms. What happened next is the apex of Internet
gore: he filmed himself trying to drain the wound, making his bathroom look like a scene
out of Saw. Finally, he gave in and went to the hospital,
where the doctor had to slice open his arm, leaving him with a large scar across his bicep,
and a distinctly lopsided appearance. “I’m short, I’m ugly, and I get it—I look
like Uncle Fester on steroids.” That too. Moustafa Ismail “My name is Moustafa and I have the biggest
arms in the world.” A bodybuilder who walks in the questionable
footsteps of Valentino by focusing almost entirely on his arms, Moustafa Ismail set
a new world record with his biceps measuring an almost-alien 31 inches. He was later investigated for using less-than-natural
means to achieve it. Among bodybuilders, it’s widely believed that
he’s a serious user of synthetic oils that artificially bulk his biceps, a claim that
he denies. Either way, there’s enough meat in those arms
to keep a starving family for several days, though if the rumors are true, the FDA probably
wouldn’t approve it. All mentions of his record were quietly removed
from the Guinness World Records official website. Fortunately, he’s still a contender for World’s
Coolest T-Shirt. Thanks for watching! Subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch

  1. I miss the days when bodybuilders went for an aesthetically beautiful form, instead of just muscle on muscle. Don't get me wrong, they were on the junk then too, but still …

    Some of these guys look like a comic book Bane. Ain't a good look.

  2. GREGG VALINTINE IS A FUCKIN CARTOON CHARACTER. SYNTHAL IS ONE OF THE MOST STUPIDIST THING YOU CAN INJECT INTO YOUR BODY. JUST MAKES THE MUSCLES LOOK CARTOONISH AND ASYMETRICAL.

  3. I love their tiny tan bikini holstered cocks. Their the yummiest for both my bum and then my tum..I love to get a good anal bench press in before I njoy my finale by squatting then a nice clean jerk of a deadlift by them all to finish off their protein shakes all over my face and tits.

  4. Your Daddy is still here baby

    The ones with the big arms they don't even look natural they don't even have tone to them their just swollen

  5. To get kids to not do drugs just show them a pic of these guys that's your body on drugs kids, drugs are bad okay

  6. This motherfucker makes it sound like they shouldnt have taken their steroids; theyre fucking pro bodybuilders, its part of the game.

  7. Fitness finest. Steroids×bodybuilding+internal illness÷mental health or addiction= early death. Anyone else do the summing up and come to the same conclusion as me. Seems logical that fitness people who abuse that shit and push things to the extreme are push there luck to the max as well and it runs out sooner than they think. Common theme among the majority was an early grave.

  8. The last guy is just pure synthol. His forearms are pretty much average Joe, which means he can't have put any effort into biceps training.

  9. Mustafa is the biggest fake ever! Its so obvious he used oil! The narrator said theres so much meat in them arms WRONG there is SO MUCH OIL in his arms!

  10. ARE YOU FUCKING INSANE???? ITS OBV ALL OF THESE PPL WERE ON ROIDS, you dont have to say " apparently " and shit like that and say the 3rd guy didnt even take them, u can be 30 times smaller and be on roids this guy knows nothing.

  11. Watchers of WWE will remember Eddy Guerrero. A normal sized wrestler, who all of a sudden comes to the ring like a Mr Universe.
    Not too strangely, he died of a "Heart Attach".

  12. If you use synthol your a god damn disgrace and shouldn't even show your face around a real gym because you'll just get laughed out of the place.

  13. Synthol users are attention seeking individuals with a distorted perception of their own bodies who look utterly abnormal, ridiculous and pathetic….

  14. @4:34 this guy needs to take an insurance against fire risk (with this amount of oil in his arms). Synthol abusers are a disgrace for real (natural) bodybuilders

  15. These people physically disgust me. I genuinely think they have mental health issues. Women do not find this attractive either, unless they are mentally disabled.

  16. Wtf!!!! That’s fucking gross ass fuck … shit does not look normal… I rather keep my big ball then loose them over an image that is fake fucking gross

  17. WHERE ARE THE PROPONENTS OF ROIDS AND HGH? YOU MAY WANT TO USE THE ALIBI THAT THESE DEAD GUYS HAD CONGENITAL AILMENTS, JUST LIKE ARNOLD. #BloodyJoke

  18. Synthol wasn't around in 1999 or 2000 so how could Valentino have used them or why did the cops not find any when he got busted?

  19. The arm guys all look ridiculous they don't even look strong it just looks like infected oozing abscesses ready to pop like pimples on their arms. Ruined their body and their lives for fake liquid/oil filled arms it's pathetically sad

  20. steroids are part of the game…always will be…Markus Ruhl spent $100,000 a year on steroids in American currency for years on end

  21. They're all idiots going too stupidly on their muscle quest…! I'm not a body builder but there's one thing for sure… I'm 72 years old and would never mess with illegal chemicals… I manage to remain old in my age over all these muscle-head idiots…!
