The last footage of the late Rich Piana has been released. It’s all in a new movie called The Rich Piana Chronicles.
Here’s the trailer. He’s training at Venice Beach, chatting to fans, and he talks about how he feels about becoming famous – hint: he says it “isn’t enough”. I’ll share my thoughts after…
WHAT I THINK ABOUT RICH PIANA
That line about wanting to be “The Rock” famous – I think it kinda sums up Rich’s mentality. Nothing was ever going to be good enough for him. I honestly think the guy had some serious insecurity issues.
The cosmetic contact lenses he’d wear sometimes, the injections to make his skin tanner, the steroids (obviously), the synthol earlier in his career and the PMMA later – yes PMMA oil was found in his muscle during his autopsy.
Having said that, I really think the guy had a good heart. When I watched his videos, I saw someone with good intentions. He was just driven by a need to be accepted as “good enough”. And I think this was a fear he carried with him for a long long time.
Most of his advice was trash – sorry, but it just was. Saying he eats 9000 calories a day. He didn’t. And he admitted he didn’t eat that much in an interview with Ric Drasin. His “feeder workouts” were absolute bollocks and counter-productive to muscle growth. And the experiments he’d run like making his calves bigger in a few weeks and measuring them – you don’t think he just injected some oil in there to guarantee success? Yeah the guy was full of it, but like it say, it was all coming from a place of fear and insecurity.
One piece of GOOD advice he did give, however, was about “Feeling the muscle, not the weight” when training. He got that 100% right. I wrote and it here and shared his video about it – go see it. Your training will produce more growth if you take this advice.
It all goes to show that being rich and famous does not equal happiness. For some people, it can just make things worse. When they’re famous, they’ve an even bigger and more unrealistic image to live up to. The stress, insecurity and fear just intensifies. And that often leads to recreational drug use to cope with it – as it did with this man, too.
P.S. I know that putting together a diet and meal plan for mass gains or getting shredded abs can be a pain in the butt, especially if you’re new to this – that’s why I offer a service where I will do all the tough ground work for you.
You probably don’t know how many calories you need, or how many grams of protein, carbs or fat you need (based on your personal stats)…BUT I DO. Then I can take these numbers and create an exact meal plan for you to hit those numbers spot on! You’ll know what foods to eat and even when to eat them. All you have to do…is do it. No thinking involved. If you’d like me to take care of this for you, see the Get Me Shredded option on my Coaching Page here.
