Often can be seen that athletes, however, ignore their core health and fitness because they are determined to reach their goals no matter what. But sometimes these ignorances could lead to collateral damage. Recently, a former Navy officer and athlete, David Goggins, often referred to as ‘The hardest MotherF**ker on the planet,’ has been avoiding his serious health concerns and indulging in intense training.

The Ultramarathon runner’s situation is so alarming that the Bodybuilding community expressed their worry and asked him to seek medical help as soon as possible. The IFBB pro coach and YouTuber, Greg Doucette, uploaded a post regardless of this matter.
