That's the million-dollar question. Unconfirmed reports suggest he died in his sleep from a suspected MI.

RIP, 31 is so young. I will pray for him and for his family.

Also, will definitely get back to cardio 6 days a week as soon as my broken foot heals up.

If he had a heart attack at age 31 due to steroid usage and/or the fact he was overeating to maintain his weight at 400 lbs I have little, if any, sympathy for him.

I feel sorry for his family.

BUT - unless he had undiagnosed heart disease - he did it to himself. I assume we will know more after the autopsy - if the results are released.

That's a damn shame, way way too young. It gives you pause, to think that at any moment it could be you, or someone close to you.
I feel especially sorry for his Wife.
I can't imagine losing your soul-mate, at such an early time in a Marriage.

400lbs!?! What a beast. This is sad... Way too young.

At 31 years old, I find it hard to believe AAS was the single largest contributor if he did in fact die from a MI. I have a friend who had a heart attack at 26 (no AAS whatsoever) and was clinically dead for 2 minutes until he was revived. He, like his dad, were just genetically prone to heart attacks and accelerated arteriosclerosis (his dad had 2 heart attacks before 30).

He's 34 now, lives normally thanks to a cocktail of meds he has to take everyday, but he's still at high risk for an MI at any moment.

If that was true, Ronnie Coleman's and Jay Cutler would be posing on stage with artificial hearts.

What do I know anyway...

Very sad indeed. Whether or not it was related to AAS use, the human heart can't support 400 lbs.

HARRISBURG -- Mike Jenkins, one of the strongest men in the world, has died. He was 31. Jenkins, a resident of Dauphin County, died suddenly this morning. CrossFit Gamma, the gym in which Jenkins co-owned in Hershey, announced his death on its Facebook page but offered no other details. Jenkins finished fourth in this year's World's Strongest Man competition. His biggest win came at the 2012 Arnold Strongman Classic, in which he beat the biggest names in the sport, including Zydrunas Savickas, Derek Poundstone, and Brian Shaw. Jenkins, who was 6'6" and around 400 lbs., also won the 2012 Giants Live in Australia and the 2010 Arnold Strongman amateur event. A native of Westminster, Md., Jenkins also played college football at James Madison. He is survived by his wife, Keri.

This is really sad... I followed this guy since he won the 2010 Amateurs.
Much respect to this man, my heart goes out to you and your family Big Guy.
