    Many of you may remember Nick from the forums. It has come to my attention that Nick died this morning. Rest in peace my friend.

    Wow. He wasn't much older than me, IIRC. Any speculation as to what caused this?

    Oh, dang.... That sucks! Nick was an AX athlete back in like 2007, too. Long time ago, but I do remember him. BIG dude, very very nice.

    All my best to his friends and family.

    Old thread, wanted to bump for anniversary but am a day late. I was thinking about it today though as I payed my student loan bill. I went to college with Nick for a semester and trained with him a few times. Even sold him some Vitargo, lol. Was a super nice guy more than willing to help anyone. He helped me bench 365 my freshman year (haven't gotten back there since).

    Funny story, he was training at night while intermeral(sp?) basketball was going on. A gym full of people, I was on the bench and he says "hey come spot me" I was like WTF? Why me (didn't say that though Nick was a friggen house) it was this time I didn't know exactly how strong he really was so I didn't think too much of it. I get in there and 625 was on the bar!

    I'm thinking, what the hell am I gonna do? Need less to say he ran a few sets and everything was fine. I get back to the game and my buddy says what was that all about? I said, ah no biggy nicks just benching 625 for reps lol

    Gone but never forgotten, RIP Nick.

    What caused the blood clot? Steroids? I take 81 mg aspirin daily and I'm only 26. The best form of treatment for disease and illness is prevention. Well that plus I'm a bit of a hypochondriac

    I have no idea, after 2008 I didn't have much interaction with him.

    One can only assume the health risks that are involved with being a raw 700lbs bencher that's 5'10 325lbs. Could have also been a freak thing. I never asked any questions (I was FB friends with him & his wife from school) didn't seem appropriate.
