Seth Feroce recently discussed the dangers of steroid usage in bodybuilding.
The amount of deaths in the world of bodybuilding keeps increasing and many athletes have spoken out about this issue. Seth Feroce became the latest as he went on a “truck rant” that he shared to his YouTube page about the dangers of steroids in bodybuilding.
Feroce burst onto the scene in the early 2000s as an IFBB Pro bodybuilder. He has not competed in close to a decade but remains an influential figure in the sport because of his overall knowledge and passion for fitness. He has been a critic of steroids for years now and recently backed up his notion during an intense rant.
Just a week ago, Cedric McMillan passed away at 44 years old. This is an ongoing problem in the sport as bodybuilding is losing some great competitors and people. Shawn Rhoden and George Peterson passed away last year due to heart issues as well.
““I knew this day would come whenever I had to make this f***ing video. It seems that nobody is saying it and everybody wants to hear somebody say it. And everybody is trying to think of a way to say it without sounding like a complete f***ing prick but about bodybuilding and motherf***s dying. So it seems I’m going to be the motherf***r to say it. Steroids will kill you. You get it. They f***ing will kill you. They will kill you. That’s it.”
The topic of steroids comes up often in bodybuilding and many wonder why athletes continue to take these supplements despite knowing they are dangerous.
According to Seth Feroce, who has been around the sport as a competitor and coach, bodybuilding is addictive and the rush of the action makes competitors feel like they are super human.
“We are addicted to this sport. We love it. It’s an attraction that we cannot control. There is nothing like training back on a 1000 migs of test, 400 migs of tren, and two f***ing Anidrol. You ain’t touching that sh**. You’re a f***ing animal. Yes you are but at some point you have to stop doing that. Do you know why you have to stop doing that? Because it will f***ing kill you and we all know it.”
Seth Feroce continues by explaining that bodybuilding does not need to be saved. Younger athletes want to win so bad that they are willing to do whatever it takes. As competitors get older, priorities can change, especially when families are in the picture. Also, as a bodybuilder gets older, they still have to deal with decisions made at a younger age.
Feroce explains how he is still dealing with some problems despite taking on a healthier lifestyle recently.
“You have children, you start to grow up, you start to realize maybe I should stop doing this sh**. Fortunately for me, it happened when it did when I tore my tricep I thought the world was over. I thought everything was going to come crumbling down. No. It was actually a blessing in disguise because I got my sh** together and now I’m in the best shape of my life.
That doesn’t erase all the shit I’ve done in my life. That doesn’t just erase all the years, the ten, almost twenty years I blasted f***ing gear. I’m like oh yeah I’m fine, I’m not going to have a heart attack. No bit** my days are numbered. They’re numbered! I’m going to f***ing die from this.”
Seth Feroce has been one of the biggest critics of steroids and is not afraid to speak his mind regarding the issue. At this point, he does not believe there is any saving bodybuilding. The risks are out there and competitors continue to use the products. Feroce is simply making sure that bodybuilders understand what they are putting their bodies through.
