Bodybuilder Dallas McCarver Dead

Bodybuilder Dallas McCarver Dead at 26

Breaking News: Dallas McCarver, who I wrote about several times as the future Mr. Olympia champion once Phil Heath Retires died last night at the age of 26 years old. Sources say that  his training partner, Josh Lenartowicz, found him face down with food in his mouth. This isn’t his first time having health problems. Earlier in the year he collapsed on stage at the Arnold Australia competition.

Dallas was one of the youngest bodybuilders ever to turn pro after winning NPC North American’s at age 21 and only his third ever bodybuilding competition. Dallas McCarver was also rumored to be dating WWE superstar Dana Brooke. 

Just two days before he passed, Dallas McCarver posted that he was weighing over 320 pounds.

Arnold Classic Bodybuilding Results (2017)


The Arnold Sports Festival has finished and we have a NEW Arnold Classic Champion.

Men’s Bodybuilding Open Results:

6. Fouad Abaid: Fouad looked really good. He tore his quad in prep and it hurt his symmetry. Great showing.

5. Juan Morel: Top half great, bottom half disappeared a bit.

4. Lionel Beyeke: Needed about 3-4 more weeks of dieting to come in hard as nails and could have won this whole thing. He is always just a hair off. Great structure.

3. Maxx Charles: He was my dark horse if you read my Arnold Predictions. He looked amazing. Great job Maxx!

2. Dallas McCarver: Dallas started working with Chad Nichols during prep, the same Chad Nicholas that pushed Ronnie Coleman to 7 Olympia titles. Dallas looked good but at 26 years old, he needs more time to get that muscle maturity that wins major championships.

1. Cedric McMillan: Cedric deserved the night. Cedric looked amazing. Tight waist, great conditioning, and bigger than ever. I couldn’t be happier for Cedric!

If you haven’t watched his speech after his win, you need to. He is inspiring.

Other winners:

Ahmad Ashkanani won the 212 Championship although I would have gave the edge to David Henry, who’s back was an anatomy chart for muscles, tendons, and other freaky things. Ahmad is the future of the 212. I don’t know how he makes weight.


Oksana Grishina competes in her final Arnold Classic Fitness and mesmerizes the crowd with win.
