RXMuscle’s Dave Palumbo said in a news update on YouTube that Jerry Ward, YouTube’s celebrity bodybuilder and bodybuilding coach, “passed.”

Palumbo said Ward was known for his educational and quirky videos “that people enjoyed.”

Ward did a live stream at the NPC Teen, Collegiate, and Masters Nationals. He’d complained that he thought he’d sprained a left rib, according to Palumbo, who added, “It bothered him.” He got a chair massage, but it felt worse afterwards. He said he was “really tired” and going to sleep. He stopped texting friends. A friend found him dead in his room.
