The evidence is overwhelming that the guy is not well.

He will never admit it of course because to do so would basically bankrupt his supplement company and website.
Who would by protein from an excon with no kidneys?

Look at the facts.

1) His body has shrivelled up to match the size of his testicles despite continued use of massive amounts of GH and AAS
errr HRT

2) He is fixated on blood pressure and its effects on the kidneys and has repeatedly said he wished he checked and controlled his BP earlier in life (ironically he fails to see the hundreds of other factors at play in the demise of his nephrons such as massive amounts of drug abuse and protein consumption over the decades). He has gone as far as admitting he had a "scare with his kidney function in the past" but that everything is "normal" now.

3) He is obsessed with natural health remedies to "detoxify" his body including ozone therapy, black micah, grounding pads and now planning a visit to see "John the healer" in Brazil.

---

My best guess. He is in early renal failure.
Most likely Stage 2 or 3 Chronic Kidney disease where they still work but are compromised. He is doing everything he can to improve their function but the reality is the damage is done. No way to recover lost nephrons or kidney function (which is what his MDs have told him) but hell, that won't stop him from trying every voodoo therapy out there and making a few bucks selling that crap to his loyal customers by slapping a species logo on it.

His weightloss is most likely related to a marked reduction in food consumption (the only thing he can do to prevent further kidney function loss with an ACE inhibitor which he is on). I'm sure his other internal organ function such as liver, heart etc... is also compromised.

---

In any case I wish him the best of luck and hopefully good health...he should be fine now that he is on ACE inhibition and a normal diet. He can live a long life with a decreased but not squashed GFR, i.e. death pool should be extended at least another decade or two

Although, I do hope his website gets shut down by "the powers that be" since all they do is promote the negative aspects of this "sport" including drug abuse, criminal activity, low life behavior etc... not to mention the incorrect, dangerous and completely ill informed medical advice he provides on his website and radio shows based on 2 years of medical training >20 years ago.

I have no dog in this fight either way, but I have recently seen Palumbo do hours of cardio and these long, extensive stretches where he will sit in the corner and stretch for 45mins+

Ask most pros or top level competitors and they will tell you that Palumbo was the biggest competitor they ever came across in person when he was hovering over 300lbs conditioned.


By the way, I see Palumbo doing hours of cardio and stretching so he is hardly close to death.
I have a picture with Dave at the 98 Night of Champions that Ronnie won, he was about 285 and ripped in a tank top and shorts. I will post when I find it!

I hear ya, but judging by his pics (and I 100% agree with you lol), he looks way worse than he really is.  If he was that deathly ill, there is no way he would be doing hours on the stair master and these intense stretches that would almost constitute a workout.

I didn't say he had one foot in the grave.
He just probably has compromised renal function.

He can live a completely normal life, only has to be VERY carefull not to harm his kidneys and internal organs more than he already has.

For example; he wouldn't dare take an advil or other NSAID and has to be very cautious regarding his protein consumption - or - his renal function will continue to deteriorate and he will end up next to Derek Anthony in the dialysis world.

Why don't you walk over to him while he's stretching and ask him to drink one of his isolyze shakes?

Fact is : He will be ok and continue to spew his bullshit on his website. He can search for the holy grail of "natural therapies" to reverse the damage he did to his kidneys but it ain't going to work.

he lied about his weight
he lied about his height
he lied about the gear he sold
he lied about his SEO usage (irl it was abuse)
he lies about the hormones he used (4iu gh lol)
he lies about his 'successful' website
he lies about his Species line (its re-packed true protein)
he lies about his health so he can keep pushing his supplements

it does matter. He shall confess before he dies.






...And then you wonder why he thinks of Getbig as a sewer.

good post.  I'm guessing he just can't take in the amount of protein anymore because of organ failure.

To put it bluntly: Palumbo is already dead. Don't get confused by the fact that he's still talking. That's just hot air escaping from his corpse.

What's up with his left hand and fingers? Looks like a localised case of spidery Marfan's.
He got a rare variation of the Pinochio syndrom. When he tells a lie, his fingers start to grow..

As I have said, I sat across from Dave at a conference table in Vegas in the late '90s and, no joke, he was the single largest bodybuilder, muscle volume-wise, I have ever seen. And I have seen, in the flesh, some gigantic muscle creatures ... Paul DeMayo immediately after turning pro, a 385-pound Kovacs, A 285-pound Strydom, Yates a few weeks after the '95 O, V. Richards in the late '80s, Coleman at over 300 ... on and on ... not to mention some of the largest strength athletes of all time.

Palumbo was the very largest while in what was almost stage condition. Tissue paper thin skin, vascularity for miles, striations showing EVERYWHERE. Utterly ridiculous.

He claimed 315 pounds bodyweight. For his height, I believe, if not quite 315, he was definitely hovering around 300, give or take five pounds.

I watched him climb about eight stairs to get to the conference room floor and, once at the top, buckle over for several seconds, huffing for air.

He looked like a lab experiment.

Yeah, there is a tonne of shit I can't let out on a message board, just because it wouldn't be the right thing to do. I have to be very measured in what I divulge. It's never been my way to go out of my way to ruin a person.

Palumbo was freaky gigantic. On the day I detail he was wearing shorts and a string tank top. It was air conditioned in the board room seeing as it was Summer in Vegas ... and Dave was sweating the whole time.

On that same weekend, a prominent figure in bodybuilding supplements almost got dead while out partying his ass off when he overdosed on certain compounds and what I believe was also heroin. The cops were gonna come to scour his hotel room and before they did, my buddy cleaned up his mess and found many things that would have incriminated him to high hell.

The industry is fuckin' ridiculous.
