The Truth About Zyzz Steroids Abuse


Was Zyzz really on steroids?

This is a sensitive post. No Zyzz fan really likes to say the words “drugs” and “Zyzz” in the same sentence. But there’s too many posts online, by people who don’t really understand the Zyzz movement, focusing solely on the steroids and not the man and the triumph that became the legend.

It feels a little disrespectful. As Zyzz fans, in our hearts we want to believe the whole Zyzz steroids things is a lie.

But the reality is that Zyzz did take steroids.

In fact, even Zyzz admitted that he took a cycle of steroids in a post on


But what isn’t often spoken about is when and why he did.

How Do We Know Zyzz Was Taking Steroids?

Zyzz’s mother, Maria Shavershian, said a post-mortem examination revealed that her youngest son suffered from an undiagnosed heart condition, which triggered cardiac arrest. I am quite sure no one except Zyzz family has seen the toxicology report. But we have all the evidence we need to know that in the time leading up to his death Zyzz was taking steroids.

In fact, when Tim Sharky asked Zyzz what he was taking not long before he died, Zyzz replied “Everything”. Sharky told him to slow down, and had this to say to the papers upon hearing the news of Zyzz’s death;

“This is a warning for any of you boys coming to Thailand. Thailand is a country with it all … girls, steroids, growth hormone, it’s all here and it’s all cheap. I spoke to him the other day and he looked like a kid in a candy shop,”

We have to consider that Aziz went to Thailand for good reason. Anabolic steroids are easily available there, and pretty cheap, too. A video posted on YouTube at the time he was in Thailand showed Aziz walking into a 7-Eleven and asking the cashier whether or not they had any “D-Bol or Stanzanol?” Sarcastically of course. Both of these drugs are anabolic agents.

Perhaps Zyzz got into steroids due to the influence of bodybuilder brother Said (Chestbrah), who was caught and fined $479 for possession of anabolic steroids in 2011, who knows. But by the time he died steroids were indeed part of his life. And it is likely that the pressure of training, partying and work combined with the excessive taking of steroids caused the fatal heart attack in that sauna in Bangkok.

When & Why Did Zyzz Start Taking Steroids?

Let’s not taking anything away from Zyzz. He was born with ectomorph genes and trained damn hard to get the physique he had. Looking at his stages of development, he probably didn’t start taking steroids until around age 20 or 21.

So consider, before you judge, just how far he came without doing any steroids at all!

Let’s not kid ourselves. So many professional athletes take drugs, as we have found out over the last few years due to the outing of great athletes such as Lance Armstrong, Tyson Gaye and Asafa Powell . From cyclists to runners and boxers, those at the top of the field need to maintain above human levels of performance all the time to not just keep winning but to maintain sponsorships and please the crowd.

Zyzz was under constant pressure to show a perfect body to the world. Consider an average day in his life; photo shoots, pictures with fans, club appearances. It would have been impossible to keep so shredded all year round that essentially he was being pushed maintain beyond human capability.

ZYZZ Steroid Cycle

After Zyzz was found in Thailand, it looks like his cycle looked pretty much to the following:

  • Tren Ace 150mg/d
  • Test Prop 150ed
  • T3 25 mcg 2 day/day
  • Clen 80 mcg ed

Here’s a rare picture of Zyzz getting his ass injected by some kind of steroid (probably test proprionate):

Regardless, Zyzz is Still a Legend

The steroids take nothing away from his physical achievements. There are millions of other bodybuilders and models out there doing way more, who don’t look anywhere near as good as Zyzz did. This is testament to the work he put in, and proves that reaching such aesthetics is about hard work and dedication. Sure, steroids will help you but there’s so much more to the equation. In truth, most who take steroids just end up round and fat. How many guys in your gym look like Zyzz did?

The fact is you have to eat right, lift right, stretch right and cultivate an awesome “win at all costs” state of mind. Sadly Zyzz pushed that boundary just that bit too far, and is no longer with us.

The best way we can celebrate Aziz Shavershian’s memory is not by focusing on the “Zyzz steroids” scandals journalists want to tarnish his name with, but by living life to the fullest, by training hard, getting healthy and aesthetic and not taking life too seriously.

Zyzz’s epic achievement from skinny nerd to guru for a whole generation of renaissance men, has seen his chiselled body go down among the greats of bodybuilding. And no one can take that away from his legend or his fans.

What I really want to know is this…was Zyzz death really just the result of an undiagnosed heart condition?

Or was it because he was on the juice? After all, his brother Chestbrah got arrested for possession of roids not long after.

What do you guys think?

    You got some parts wrong. Zyzz started taking steroids like 6 months into his training i believe. And it was he who introduced steroids to his older brother, not the other way around! (Chestbrah has said this) 🙂

    wow this article is stupid, if you are going to write an article about zyzz and steroids than first do some research because everything you are talking about is not anything more interesting than what the average zyzz fan would tell you.
    First of all, it was zyzz that got chestbrah into steroids.
    Secondly, zyzz didn’t start steroids at 20 or 21. Hes first cycle started at the age of 18, which was a prohormone called H-Drol. He still has posts on the forums were he talks about being on tren and sus in july 2008. So that being said he started cycling heavy steroids shortly after he turned 19.
    zyzz totally didn’t get far naturally, hes body is made of steroids.

    There’s some extreme idiot on youtube and dailymail that is using this guy’s name and acting like a complete troll.

    When confronted he praises Zyzz but continues to use pathetic insults and generally is a dick with his name and picture.

    If you see this troll please give him grief as he is doing nothing but soiling this guy’s name

    Anyone claiming that Az’s body is “all steroids” obviously has no idea what they’re talking about. Steroids aren’t a free pass to a shredded body. Steroids will help out someone training, but 95% of that body is the result of the hard work he put in at the gym and in the kitchen. Steroids are what allowed him to get as big as he did near the end of his life while maintaining that low BF %. Good example would be natty vs pro bodybuilders.

    I’ve just learnt about this Zyzz guy and I immediately thought that is pretty obvious he was taking roids… Then I put a youtube video named “zyzz 2013″ or like that and towards the half of the vid he has a pic of someone injecting him in his ass.. This is so gross and so wrong. Not a good example for kids out there.

    I’ve been lifting since 18 and breathing gym life since then. Now at 35 I am stronger than ever, lifting twice what this guy shows in his vids. Irony is I look much more skinner amd less defined than him, which is how REAL muscle really looks like.

    Never ever consider taking steroids, you’ll be on track to a premature death. Don’t believe me? Google for “wwf heart attack”… All those wrestlers die prematurely because of heart problems…

    Blaming steroids for the death…probably not true.

    Steroids + alcohol and perhaps mixing other drugs…. Possibly. Also no-one knows the quality of the steroids over there, was he getting proper good stuff?? god knows what was in some of the gear he was getting.

    These WWF/WWE stars who died of heart attacks you need to just do a ‘little research’ first. Steroids didnt cause the heart attacks. Many of these guys were juicing and also on very very strong painkillers /cocaine and mixing it with plenty of alcohol. Theres some really good articles out there that explain all this. Its the media that just straight away point to STEROIDS. Which imo is total BS.

    Steroids taken wisely and smartly you will benefit greatly. Rushing out and being unwise and just injecting this and that at crazy doses your asking for trouble, if you dont know what your doing.

    Its like with any drug, alcohol, pills, cocaine, etc too much and your done. Being smart about it and educating yourself on all the procedures /doses is the best way to make sure your not putting yourself into a dodgey situation.

    I feel sorry for this dude tho he seemed like a good lad. Who knows what really happened, maybe some dodgey gear or maybe he bought stuff that was way stronger than he intended who knows.

    My thoughts are with his family.

    How can you write this – when young people read it, they will never see the danger of taking roids.
    Take roids for two months – let check your blood values, and you will see how it changes the health of your body… That’s a fact, I like Hardcore-BB anyway cause it’s the only sport where people know of and accept the doping-consume. So it’s splitted in Natural and Professional. Should be in every kind of sport the same.

    This is the best fucking comment I’ve seen on the subject. I don’t believe steroids are what caused the heart attack either. It’s when you start to stimulate the body with all kinds of other drugs like cocaine ect when you start to put more stress on the heart plus the heart condition he had did not help any. Everyone assumes steroids kill you lol. Doctors use steroids on patients every day and in moderate dosages and cleansing I think they are safe. I don’t know anyone knows what really triggered the heart attack but I would like to know what really happen in Bangkok.

    yeah, way to try and rationalize his drug abuse

    if he felt what he was doing was reputable there would be no speculation about whether he took roids or not

    his “legend” is tarnished and inspires no one

    I think there’s inspiration to be taken from Zyzz’s life but also a huge lesson. Sadly he got caught up in steroids toward the end of his life, and like someone mentioned before, was probably mixing coke and alcohol too which contributed to his death – although this is speculation as we do not have the official coroner’s report.

    At the end of the day, Arnie took way more gear than Zyzz at the same age, and yet he has been a living legend for the past 40 years.

    Rest in peace brah!
    Zyzz is still a legend…many people do far more steriods and survive, he just crossed the line for his personal chemistry.

    I am inspired by this guy, more by the mentality than anything else!
    And i think THAT is the crucial point about Zyzz,…we don’t have to be on “everything” to be inspired by him!

    Even if we know that we may never look like him without the risk-taking, we are happy to be living a new life, in the pursuit of Aesthetics brah!

    As the wild child himself said…Haters Gon’ hate!

    Shit, i spelt my own user name wrong…that’s a sure-fire way to look intelligent right?? Hahaha!

    And i meant the dangerous mix of steroids and whatever party drugs he may have taken, plus the heart condition, it just crossed the line for his individual thresholds.

    Legend none the less.
    For inspiring a whole bunch of ecto-morphs like myself, to stand up and actually go after your dreams and goals.
    Not to use anything as an excuse or a glass ceiling.

    So thanks again Zyzz for putting that energy out here for all of us to pick up on.
    So sad that you aren’t still here smashing birds and weights to see your legacy!
