So I discovered Zyzz through a friend of mine who’s in his late teens, into bodybuilding and had adopted what I have come to understand is the Zyzz persona. every so often at work he would come out with words like you mirin brah? or you Jelly brah? whilst tensin his arms or something and I would be like Josh, what the f##k are you doing? itz all about aesthetics innit! and still I’d be like Josh, wtf??
Anyways.. Zyzz real name, Aziz Sergeyevich Shavershian was an Australian bodybuilder and Internet celebrity in the bodybuilding community who has become iconic after his unexpected death at the young age of twenty two.
Zyzz pronounced Ziz, was his internet handle on sites such as bodybuilding.com, 4chan.org and simplyShredded.com where he built up his rapport within the online bodybuilding communities.
He became popular by posting videos of himself for admiring his own asthetics and using any opportunity he could to show off his physique on video acting out to create his own Zyzz style show/world.
It wasnt all love for Zyzz though, he attracted as much dislike and hatred as he did respect and admiration from his online persona. People were unsure as to whether or not he was atually trolling in his posts and videos and obviously there’s all-ways going to be jealous haters no matter what.
Either way you look at it, he had a positive outlook on life. he inspired people to get in the gym and lift, his ideology was to make something special out of your life, become something more. Don’t just wither into existence , embrace life…. his motto was:
Be a sick C#nt, not a hard C#nt
On the 5th of August 2011, Aziz suffered a heart attack in a sauna whilst on vacation in Bangkok, Thailand which was the result of an undiagnosed congenital heart defect.
Its almost certain that Zyzz took steroids, there doesnt seem to be many people disputing that. I dont think thats any particular reason to downplay his story although many people on the internet do however seem to correlate his untimely death with steroid use.
