Rich Piana was first introduced to bodybuilding by his mother at the age of 11, he began competing at age 15 and moved up to taking steroids to boost his physique at age 18.
After decades of using steroids, this 45 year-old bodybuilder said he had no regrets in using the body enhancers while sharing his routine with his over eight-hundred faithful fans.
Piana’s watchword of Whatever It Takes has seen him pay less attention to the end result of steroids than using any means available to achieve that body.
His extreme measures have also caused other extreme bodybuilders to make Youtube videos pleading with the 45 year-old to chill out on the pills.
Piana admitted on one of his Vlogs that he knew fully the risk of using steroids though he was adamant on being happy with his life and the choices he had made so far.
He said: ‘If you have the choice to do steroids or stay natural, stay natural. There’s no reason to do steroids, you’re only hurting your body and hurting yourself.
But if you want to become a professional bodybuilder, guess what? You’re probably going to have to f***ing do them, you’re not going to have a choice. That’s the boat I was in”.
