Death Cause: Legendary bodybuilder and competition judge has suddenly died aged just 46. His death is sadly the latest in a slew of tragedies in the sport.

Ward posted a video to his YouTube channel just a few hours before he died. According to Rx Muscle’s Dave Palumbo, he was complaining about possibly having pulled his left rib.

Palumbo said he thought he’d injured himself while carrying luggage, and that the issue got worse after he used a massage chair.

A friend told Ward to get it checked out but he decided to sleep it off, according to Palumbo.
