Rich Piana used pre-workout powder like a drug

UPDATE: Prior to his death, bodybuilder star Rich Piana reportedly used pre-workout powder like a drug. According to a death report obtained by TMZ Sports:

RICH PIANA WOULD SNORT LINES OF PRE-WORKOUT POWDER LIKE IT WAS COCAINE …”

Rich Piana made no secret of the habit

Law enforcement spoke with Piana’s girlfriend to try and find out what the powder was — and she told investigators it was CON-CRET PRE workout powder (Lemon-Lime)  … which is advertised as a high-caffeine booster.

Piana’s GF told cops, “He would snort this powder” … and she does not believe it was anything illicit.

So, what did cause Piana’s medical emergency? Officials say the autopsy was essentially inconclusive … though it revealed Piana had heart disease.

Unclear if the 20 bottles of steroids found in his home contributed in any way either.

Piana was 46.
