Just a couple days after the passing of Mr. Olympia 2018, Shawn Rhoden of a massive heart attack, now another bodybuilder, and a Youtube celebrity, Kali Muscle has suffered a heart attack and has been hospitalized.
Chuck Kirkendall a.k.a Kali Muscle is 46 years old. He’s a famous Youtuber/Bodybuilder known for appearing as an actor in lots of different adverts in the US for companies such as Snickers, Honda and Geico, and also his own Youtube videos.
On 7th of November Kali posted a video from the hospital, explaining what happened to him and describing the experience as “the scariest thing that happened” to him.
Sharing the news to his thousands of YouTube subscribers, he explained how he woke up with chest pains after taking a nap. He thought the pain was heartburn before his girlfriend took him to the hospital.
“For years man, I had a problem with oedema in my feet and ankles. But, you know, I was younger I didn’t think much of it. Being a tough a**, we ignore people saying that like I ain’t got no heart problems.“
Describing the severity of his condition, a woman in the background of the video said: “Your left artery that supplies blood to your left side of the heart had been clogged one hundred per cent.“
The actor had emergency surgery but said he wasn’t scared.
The 46-year old also told his fans, “Make sure you guys take care of your health. That’s what I’ve been talking to you about anyway. And you know, God is using me as an example. Cause as we just saw, you know, RIP Shawn Rhoden.“
At that moment, Kali held back his tears before stating, “Some people don’t get a second chance, man. I got my twins and I gotta live, man.” Reports claim Kali will leave the hospital in a day or two after undergoing successful surgery.
The Fitness and Power team wishes Kali Muscle a speedy recovery.
