Gold medal winner of the 2016 South Asian Bodybuilding Championship, Humayun Khurram tragically passed in a very bizarre way. While he was eating, his family said his trachea broke. Even though his family denies he took steroids, medical professionals said it’s likely steroids played a factor.
Already a grumbling, angry mess when he entered the Gold’s Gym that day, Chad Brothers’s fury took a violent, tragic turn.

A self-professed skinny boy who turned into a bodybuilding Youtube heartthrob, Aziz Shavershian, also known as “Zyzz,” went on vacation in Thailand for some rest and relaxation.

Gregg Valentino has really, really big arms. In fact, they look so bulky and huge, we originally thought they were photoshopped. Measuring at 27 inches, his arms are some of the largest arms in the world. To put that in perspective, he is 5’5? and his waist is 27 inches as well. Of course, he’s been arrested for taking steroids. No amount of arm curls could get you to that size. The big tragedy here? Even other bodybuilders hate him.
