When one could spot a lot of reasons floating around, it is indeed a huge loss to the bodybuilding fraternity to have lost such an amazing bodybuilder.
Why do bodybuilders die from heart-related issues and heart attacks?
The most common question which is triggering everyone is how could someone who rigorously exercises to maintain health dies of heart-related ailments and issues. Generally, a heart attack is caused due to plaque formation and the artery damage leads to bleeding.
When bleeding occurs for a prolonged period, clotting occurs, which blocks the blood flowing via that artery. The heart muscle is supplied by the respective artery and the supply of oxygen gets disrupted.
The rigorous exercise can help in stabilizing plaques but it cannot prevent them from forming.
A healthy diet does not aid in the formation of plaque. But when the bodybuilder consumes a lot of steroids, it leads to a lot of plaque formation; sometimes enlargement of the heart also occurs which leads to irregularity in a heartbeat that eventually causes death.
Bodybuilders not only die due to heart attacks. They also died due to a lot of other reasons, like organ failure. Bodybuilders build a physique by carrying heavyweights and they undergo a lot of intense workouts and they push their body to certain limits which demand more supply of oxygen and it is a well-known fact that it is found in our blood.
The heart is required to pump the blood at high speed and it has to do it at twice the speed of the bodybuilders. The heart is made of muscles.
Excessive exercises cause some strain on these muscles as well. If you take X-rays of a person with no athletic or bodybuilding history, and a person with a bodybuilding background, you could see quite a difference in the shape and structure of the heart, which is not a healthy sign.
Why do regulations need to be in place for bodybuilders?
A lot of deaths are seen these days due to the unhealthy consumption of growth hormones by bodybuilders, which is leading to their death. A rules-based body to regulate Bodybuilding activity has to be in place to prevent these kinds of mishaps.
Just like how the athletes are made to undergo tests as to whether they have consumed steroids or not, to better up their performance, a similar test should also be conducted for the bodybuilders to know if they have consumed steroids or not.
