So before he self destructs and I know there are many People who follow bodybuilding what are your thoughts on him.

Obviously he's using various dangerous enhancements.

Jesus, first McCarver (which I don't exactly buy the choking on food as the reason he died), now Piana within a week. Rich was known to party and take A LOT of enhancers plus both guys would get up to over 300lbs on several occasions to look as freaky big as possible. I would hope this would be a wake up call to bodybuilding but then so many guys from the 90's and early 2000's have died or have debilatating health issues and it hasn't stopped anyone.

But from what I've seen Piana seemed like a good dude and drugs aside had good tips on bodybuilding.

RIP

I liked watching Rich's videos, thought he was a decent entertainer.

I don't know all what happened with Rich, I haven't seen any info. Some are saying it was drugs, others are saying that he hit his head and it was just an accident and thus ended up in hospital in medically induced coma.

I assume we'll find out the details sooner or later.

R.I.P Rich, I liked your YouTube channel.

He clearly had no clue of what he was doing to himself and he thought the opposite.

300 lbs of gas and recreational drugs, surprised this didn't happen a decade ago.

I watched one of his video's yesterday. He talked about his side effects of using Human Growth Hormone. He said that he wore a size 12 shoe and when he started taking HGH his shoe size went up to a size 15! He also said that his wrist, hands and skull grew. And the only reason he stopped taking it was because his waist started getting thicker because of his internal organs growing.

Ric Drasin a friend of Piana's and a former wrestler and bodybuilder said that he remembered talking to Rich and said that just sitting and talking he was out of breath and sweating. He asked him if he was ok and he responded that he had been checked and everything "checked out." Ric compared Piana to an obese man carrying so much extra weight and that being hard on his heart which was undoubtedly enlarged.
