Muscle-Building Workout and Diet

Hey, what’s going on Nation? So for those of you who’ve been following me for a while. You know that I don’t really make videos like this I tend to stick to the tips and videos that are gonna help you guys with your gym and your Fitness Lifestyle, I just think that trying to capitalize other people’s misfortune is a really bad idea It’s very Low-class But I mean it has been such a sad month in the bodybuilding world and being a part of this world I just I wanted to take some time to reflect on this and talk to you guys about some of the things that I think are happening that need to be changed and The recent deaths of Rich piana and Dallas macabre and even a buddy of mine Really kind of sent a message home for me that the fitness industry is just really starting to go down this doc Path that there’s no turning back from and what I mean by that is it’s like you know every every single day You know people seem to want more and more and more and every year that goes by We go to bodybuilding shows like the Arnold classic or the Olympia. It’s just like Every dude is stepping on stage and by time they step off They’re just expected to get bigger and bigger and bigger every single year And it’s it’s almost like the the chains are off You know people are doing whatever they can to reach that goal, and that’s a very dangerous thought you know Fitness is supposed to be about living a long healthy life You know looking good on the outside and on the inside and unfortunately You know if you start going down this path of competing and getting in the spotlight And you want to be like a huge bodybuilder competing you know in shows like the Arnold classic or Mr. Olympia or maybe just want to be the biggest most massive dude out there? It comes at a cost you know and that cost is you kind of risk your health? I mean you can be the best trainer in the world and you can train Thousands of people and if they decide they want to do some drugs to get bigger There is no safe way it is a risk you cannot foresee the future of what’s gonna happen You know whether it’s a month a year five years 20 years You just don’t know how these things are going to affect you and you also don’t know you know a hundred percent what your genetic makeup is and what you’re susceptible to and So obviously you guys have heard the news rich piana had recently passed away I Actually didn’t get a chance to meet rich piana my wife and I met him we were in Will go into body power in the uk my buddy Reggie Connor Murphy my wife and I are all in the same plane And when we got off to get her a bit our luggage rich piana happened to be there And I will say we all met him and talked to him for a little bit And he seemed like a really nice guy you know the fact that he teaches things that that’s different than me Doesn’t mean I can’t like him as a person. He seemed like a really chill dude And it was really sad to hear that he had gone into a coma and then obviously recently passed away As of this week, but it’s like you know What would have happen like the complications that he had obviously we’re not Gonna know a hundred percent You know what really happened until the the coroner’s report comes out if they do decide to release that information But you gotta ask yourself question you know rich piana built his entire business off of being you know the 5% Crew and all that hype around the 5% crew And you didn’t have to be 5% natural to obviously like him and use his supplements But that was kind of what he built his empire on so think about this guys if you’re studying Social Media now and You go down this Road And you start to look a certain way because you have some help because you’re taking certain things and you start to build this image You know of yourself that people like you’re getting all kinds of attention. You’re getting sponsorships, you’re building a business You know think about? What its Gonna take to now maintain that rich piana is the face of the 5% so he needs to stay? 5% to keep that going you know if he stops being 5%. Maybe he got smaller Maybe he started to lose some muscle, mass. Maybe certain things started to affect him You know people would probably leave comments and be like oh You’re not as big as you used to or maybe you know it would be kind of an internal struggle with him being like I need to look a certain way to To represent my business properly so I can keep making money so I can have the lifestyle I want to live like it’s it’s a lot more than just physical appearance it starts to affect Your entire life you know everything around you and even for people that aren’t building a business you know or aren’t in the spotlight or aren’t You know competing in shows and this is where my friend comes into play? I have a friend who recently passed away a couple weeks ago He had been struggling with cancer for a long time, and I’ve known him since I was about 15 years old And I don’t want to say his name and respect for his family So I’m just gonna say my friend So my friend you know he had used drugs in the past to build the kind of physique that he liked just because he liked It I think he did compete a few times in 100% sure But still like he just liked to look a certain way, which is fine. It’s your life It’s your body but he ended up getting liver cancer and for those of you who have seen videos where I’ve talked about the effects of using drugs if you have any sort of genetic issue in your body such as Cells that can be cancerous or if you have issues with your heart or anything and if you take drugs What happens is all of that gets increased tenfold you know and so he had a really aggressive Can’t blot liver cancer that like took him completely out and he went to the hospital into radiation and he was actually Recovering he was recovering from it and when he got out of the hospital He was good for a while But it’s like, but then what happened is he started Going back on the drugs again cuz he wanted to look a certain way And I feel like as soon as he did that he kind of sealed his fate Unfortunately, and we will never know whether he would have completely recovered and lived much longer Happier life or if it would have come back You know just because it’s already in a system and sometimes it does come back But you know taking the drugs definitely made his chances of it coming back a whole lot, bigger but and then that’s kind of playing into what I said before like there was a certain look that he liked to be and if He wanted to get back there he had to do certain things and so you start to get into this cycle of You will never look the way you did unless you do the things that you were doing And I feel like that’s one of the biggest issues with the industry day is that we expect so much from people We expect you know athletes to be ripped all the time to be getting bigger all the time You know to be lifting more weight every time they post a video like it’s like people expect the impossible There’s only one way to make the impossible happen you know even myself I posted some videos like a week ago, or two weeks ago. I was leaning out for a photo Shoot in Miami And so I had dropped like eight or nine pounds because I was doing a lot more running And I was trying to get as cut up as possible for the shoe You know and as soon as the video comes out and people see me They’re like you don’t look as big your chest as small your traps was like your biceps are smaller And it’s like they don’t know or care that I’m cutting for a shoot but like those comments I mean they they sting you know nobody wants to hear in this industry especially for men that you look smaller You know even if it’s not coming from a bad place It’s a mental thing. It’s like it’s it’s a it’s a trigger. Word. You know you look small you don’t look as good as you used to and then you know and it just you just have to go down this cycle of Wanting to Impress all these people that are following you and so This whole last couple weeks, especially with Dallas passing away as well. You know Dallas the situation he collapsed on stage last year. You know that should have been A wake-up call like hey, you know you collapsed on stage We having some issues with your hat like Let’s rethink what’s happening and then obviously the report came out for Dallas that he had choked on food But I I think I was trying to find the exact information. It’s not totally out there yet at the time I’m making this video right now But it was basically that he had some sort of like episode while he was eating and they don’t know exactly what caused that episode But you know Dallas was still getting ready to compete on stage So he was more than likely still doing the things that he was doing when he collapsed on stage last year so the question now becomes is would the episode that unfortunately caused his death still would have happened if he Had taken last year as a wake-up call, and maybe made some food have some lifestyle changes So we will never know and unfortunately It’s very very sad whether you like these people or not there are people who? You care about them and know the dallas he had a girlfriend Who’s probably in just absolute misery right now and our hearts go out to her? Obviously rich same thing his girlfriend is like destroyed and she’s falling apart and she needs all the help and support She can get you got mothers that are losing sons brothers that are losing brothers you know sisters and losing brothers families that are losing loved ones and the Fitness industry I feel nitze really start to reflect on itself and Reflect on the direction that it’s going down. I mean even arnold Schwarzenegger himself has said that the fitness industry Especially the competing side is going down a road that Doesn’t really have the look that it should you know the fitness industry needs to start needs to stop rewarding? Excess, you know needs to stop saying. Yes Bigger stronger bigger stronger bigger stronger because what happens is months like this where we have people who unfortunately? Pay the Ultimate price and are no longer with us So what is my message to you guys out of all this one message to you? Is that you need to sit down and think long and hard about? What you want to do what you want to get out of fitness because as soon as you decide to go down this path Your fate is sealed you will need to stay on that path and if you’re gaining and if you think that gaining a hundred thousand Instagram followers is worth me possibly shortening your lifespan or Affecting your ability to have kids or any of these other issues that could come about You know that’s a real decision that you might not be thinking about right now you might be watching this video and you could be 16 17 18 years old and you know you’re just young and you think you’re invincible These are real things that you need to think about because it’s going to greatly affect you and the people around you you know Unfortunately for these these three people who passed away in the last couple weeks and these are only the three people that I know about think about all the people that you don’t know about that are having the same issues And that are suffering it is a it is a real thing it just happens to be that two really big names passed away within The same week pretty much. You know so chances are that if you decide to start today? You’re jumping into a roller-coaster ride that you can’t control you’re just gonna have to hold on and wish for the best and if you follow Rich or Dallas on Social Media I mean their friends and family their loved ones their suffering right now if they’ve impacted your lives in any way Helped you reach your goals got you started in Fitness Whatever your story might be go to those pages and leave those comments because I’m telling you Every little comment helps and it will really help the friends and family of these two guys cope with their loss Because I’m sure that they’re all suffering right now, and I just want to say one more thing as your online trainer You know it is my job to make sure that when you guys decide to get started in Fitness That fitness helps you live a longer healthier life And I just want to make sure that if you guys are watching this video you do take the time to evaluate You know what fitness means to you and make sure you’re making the right? decisions to ensure that you do live long and look great while you’re doing all the things that you love so Lots of love out to these guys I hope the the friends and family definitely are able to to cope with this and You know mourn their loss and be at Peace. Thank you so much for taking the time to watch this video I’ll see you guys later

100 thoughts on “Rich Piana & Dallas McCarver Are Dead | MY THOUGHTS & REACTION

  1. It's been a sad month for the Fitness Industry. Our hearts go out to the friends, family and loved ones of these two and I hope they find a way to mourn their loss in peace. R.I.P. Rich & Dallas.

  2. As in the modeling business with the weight issue there should be regulation over the use of these substance. You over use it?, you cant compite. Some people say these people live like they want it; and that is ok because is their live. But their selling with their image that it is ok to live like these and if you want success you should look like that.

  3. You are a faithful man and you have a good morals and I respect you to continue your wonderful channel.

  4. scott really i learned a lot of you , you are greta example of mindset before being a sport man ..most of sport men sick in opinion and the path truly and simply thats it bro , i have been busy with my life and depression cant imagine almost 1 year passed didnt listen to your videos mmmmm keep up the good work life goes on

  5. Great advices and suggestions! On top of that I'm so sorry for your loss and for the loss of the 2 others. My condolences.

  6. Man, I'm really going to miss these two, but they'll always be an inspiration to us all! R.I.P. brothers!🙏🙏🙏🙏

  7. Personally I think you look fine either way it’s like you said people expect you to look a certain way but who cares what they say or think as long as you’re healthy and not taking shortcuts, don’t mind the negative comments you do what you’ve been doing

  8. I always enjoy your fitness videos!! I lift i am a firm believer whatever you build naturally should be good enough!! It's not other people's opions that count it's how u feel about yourself!! Chicken beef etc will do the trick it just takes time!! All the best man and sorry to hear about your friend!!

  9. "You look smaller"? Relax. I am 5'10"1/2 just like you, 175# and you are my optimal physique goal (I will never reach, but keep trying). Kind of like a natural Frank Zane. You are what all of fitness should be. Honestly natural, functional, lean, strong, reasonable and smart hard work. Keep it up!

  10. i have been watching some of scott's videos for a while now and always liked it, but this video made me really like him. what a good dude.

  11. "it's classless to exploit the deaths of bodybuilders for personal gain. Now let's talk about dead bodybuilders and check out the photos of dead bodybuilders on the thumbnail for clicks."

  12. I have breast cancer. I am an RN. I am into fitness. One of the things my friends and family doing. They are taking the "what is the point attitude". " if this can happen to her when she eats healthy and lifts and exercises why bother. …" I find this distressing. I think the fact that other than cancer I am healthy will help me fight better. I can not seem to get this through people's head. I sadly feel that I will outlive those like my hubby with this new destructive patterns. I have not done any kind of steroids. I do not do massive supplements just a multi and vit c and fish oil. I feel horrible that I am a worse example than Dallas and Rich (RIP). I still eat healthy as possible. I am getting my muscle back after the surgeries. I look fantastic. ..I am told. I know my doctors say I am doing great. I hope you put it out there . Every time someone who is supposed to be healthy like those two die because of their over zealous healthy life, there are those who use this as an excuse to stay fat and unfit and unhappy. I am not over zealous like fit stars are. I can tell you at nearly 50 I am stronger than many men who weigh alot more than me I am flexible, and have great endurance. Before surgery I was able to do handstand pushups. I got carded for my last birthday. I have no knee or back issues. I know many who at my age have broken down bodies. God willing, I will live a long time. If not, I will never be sorry for being fit and cute. Fit is the best way to be. My pics are on Facebook Glenda Kay. Sorry for not editing. Thanks for your videos and to those reading my rant. I hope to see a video addressing this issue. I do not think it is done enough. Xoxo

  13. We do need to educate people to stop chasing the mirror. We need someone to send a message of what is real and what is not.

  14. This is such a great message for everyone who's into fitness… I'm really grateful at your words… You're definitely the best trainer… Hugs from Argentina…

  15. People need to stop associating size with looking good and being fit. Healthy is attractive, and so many bodybuilders look totally unhealthy.

  16. dont fuck with peds, get sleep, manage stress and dont fuck strange people. oh and for the love of god do some cardio.

  17. People die.
    That's not an unusual occurrence in the world.
    They might have extended their lives if they focused more on health versus "modernized" fitness.
    Health is commonly neglected at the moment, and proper nutrition is the foundation to good health.
    If you master the equilibrium of health and fitness, you WILL IMPROVE your quality of life!

  18. Rich has never been a Pro Bodybuilder, he was a freak with his roids and oils. He is now the poster guy for What Not and How Not to do it. The Bodybuilding Scene has to change, but at the end of the day, it is your own responsibility when you take drugs and are killing your body.

  19. Rich Piana autopsy

  20. If anybody thinks that someone who is 6'0" 275lbs looks good… they're obviously smoking crack. Put down the weights, stop going to the all you can eat buffet and pickup some running shoes

  21. Rich seemed like a nice guy, but how many people did he convince to get on gear? How many of those ruined their health? Be smart, kids.

  22. (love the vids & sub) Scott, the industry is like government and religion (everything), but it is built on lies … Take roids your body stops producing hormones, take creatine your body stops production, take etc. etc. .. But all anyone in capitalism cares about is making money, you said it (Piana had a business).

    A healthy body takes time and work, but like gov./religion etc. the people don't like the truth. They will go to pain staking lengths to avoid truth more than they will to work on a healthy, happy life.

    Everyone wants to cheat, everyone wants you to capitulate to justify their bad choices and desires. (you are right to avoid vids like this)

    Example : people want religion because they fear death and have a need to think they are loved in some special way … burn books stating King James rewrote the bible, or most of religion today is a mix of pagan beliefs (SUN day, Moon day, Thor day, etc.) lock up scientists (Galileo) and in the end you not only see the liars spreading the BS but the eagerness people have to cling to the lies.

    Better Example : U.S. abolished slavery / complete lie because the 13th Amendment institutionalized slavery and we have millions of slaves in the U.S. today.

    I mean in the U.S. everyone is striving to get rich yet, the rich don't go to heaven … what a joke (good luck getting that camel through the eye of the needle folks) #amirite #hypocracy

  23. "the fitness industry shouldn't keep praising bigger is better," you said it all right there. Steroids used to be the last touch after exercising and dieting as explained Arnold and other old timers, now it is the first thing before exercising and dieting, and painful death seems to be now the last touch therefore.

  24. It changed from aesthetics to just sheer amount of muscle. And it did because of money. These judges get a % from different supplement companies, just so they can keep this "more muscle is better" trend in the bodybuilding world. The fact is, money controls everything. If people didn't gave a fuck about em now Rich Piana and the other bodybuilders that died to these sacret supplements would've been alive.

  25. haha. you got some knowledge no doubt, but the superhero and cartoon theme makes it hard to listen to you, rather the opposite. It seems it hurts trust… at least coming from a 39 year old perspective that used to be an avid gym rat.

  26. How many 1000's of people die every year from tabac and alcohol related illness. How many a year die from using gear? 10 -20?.

  27. How would I train for mr Olympia I’m 210 pounds and 12 percent body fat I’m was told I need to get to 235 and be at 8 percent I wanna be well symmetrical and proportionate I have never done steroids and what does it take to get to Olympia or Arnold classic without steroids because I’m determined and I’ve been going to the gym 6 days a week for 1 hour and 30 minutes a day how do I make it I’m willing to do whatever it takes I will not do drugs pr roids

  28. Comments sting? People need to grow a pair and stop being hyper sensitive to comments because those people that leave said comments hold no value in your life. Social media is the worst.

  29. I was lucky enough to meet Rich Piana when he came into the restaurant I worked in. He was such an amazing man! Of course he stuck out like a sore thumb and all eyes were on him. He was so humble and generous and so sweet to everyone. I hope he was proud of himself and enjoyed his life. I'm sure his death devastated those who knew and loved him

  30. Two years later, watching this, hearing every word of this video, it seems like we’re glossing over the crux and root of the problem and going straight to the low hanging fruit (drugs). It’s similar to the Columbine massacre and all the myriad tragic shootings that have occurred hence where the media simply points to the easy way out because it’s convenient: Guns and fun control. Okay. What about awareness of mental health and providing resources for those who need help and can’t find what they need, causing further alienation? Same things goes for men like Piana and McCarver. Put the drugs aside for a moment. What about the mental health and body image disorders that led to the drug abuse in the first place? If that’s not addressed, “think of your health” will go in one ear and out the other until these demon causing the body dysmorphia are taken head on. I respectfully have to say that this video would have been a much better platform to urge your followers with body image disorder to seek help, and not just be a generic anti-steroid message that uses Mr Piana and Mr McCarver as scapegoats. I feel like you missed the mark here, Mr Herman, with all due respect.

  31. That's what happens when you get too big. Obese isn't just fat it can be muscle. You can't get enough air to your muscles and the heart has to do more and more work to pump the blood. These guys take 2 to 3 scoops of pre workout and stuffing themselves full of food and powders all day long, the body will finally fail

  32. Only idiots use drugs to get a certain look that they know they cant get naturally. Yes you are idiots and drug addicts

  33. All that muscle growth also grows the heart,which is a muscle. If getting that big will kill you before 50,it isn't worth it.

  34. I know a lot of women who go to my gym willing to starve themselves just to get abs. I have in the past done the same thing, my diet and exercise had to be perfect in order to drop my female curves….Does this sound like a recipe for hormonal and emotional disorders? I am much more aware of this now and thankful that I have my health
