What’s The Deal With Palumboism?


Palumboism is a very rare and complex disease only seen in the ranks of professional bodybuilders, especially the ones from the 1990’s and 2000’s eras.

Palumboism effects mostly the limbs and especially the midsection area. Where the width of the ribs, waist and pelvis grow disproportionately, while the obliques thicken thus rendering the person from sucking in and holding in their stomachs. Something known as the vacuum in the bodybuilding world.

Where Did The Name Palumboism Come From?:

Palumboism was first noticed during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. It was first noticed on bodybuilder Dave Palumbo, hence the name Palumboism.


Palumboism is a funny disease, since no one knows what really causes it. Some people speculate and assume that the reason the bodybuilders in the 1990’s and 2000’s got it was because of the high does HGH (human growth hormone) and insulin. I believe that in fact these are some of the causes of the disease. If you notice the bodybuilders from the beginning of competitive bodybuilding all the way to the early 1990’s, you’ll notice not a single person with the disease or its symptoms.

However, I believe the main culprit of Palumboism is stress and adrenal fatigue. Bodybuilders put vast amounts of stress on their bodies from various things, such as forced eating, steroid and performance enhancer use and weight training, which in itself is very stressful to the central nervous system.

Over time, it’s no wonder these people’s bodies begin to breakdown. Stress can do that to a person and high stress levels is one of the indications of adrenal fatigue.

Therefore the main causes of Palumboism can be broken down into these four areas

1. High steroid usage

2. High HGH/insulin usage

3. Stress

4. Adrenal fatigue


There are currently no known cures for Palumbosim. The only solution to the disease is if the person gives their bodies a rest, meaning no more usage of steroids and other various performance enhancers. Simple rest and recovery will soothe the disease and halt it right into it’s tracks.
