Bodybuilder And Fitness Author, Doug Brignole Passed Away


With a heavy heart, we have to announce the passing of one of the most renowned bodybuilders competing in the AAU and NABBA on October 14, 2022. Doug Brignole passed away at the age of 63. May he rest in peace.

Over four decades, Brignole’s career spanned, and luckily, it was marked with several tremendous accomplishments. As people say he was similar to bodybuilding legend Frank Zane in many ways.

Brignole was one of the bodybuilders with a cerebral approach and controversial yet revolutionary ideas who was known among people not only for his size but for his proportions and shape.

We must inform you that we lost a talented bodybuilder on October 14, 2022. Doug Brignole passed away at the age of 63. RIP.

He made a decision to spend most of his competitive career in the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and National Amateur Bodybuilding Association (NABBA) instead of competing in the IFBB Pro League and the NPC.

In 1976, when he was only 16 years old, Brignole started his career, and throughout it, he achieved a lot of honors like winning the 1982 AAU Mr. America in the medium tall division at 22 years old.

Four years later, he topped this achievement by winning the 1986 AAU Mr. Universe in the Light Heavyweight division. Together, these mark the biggest competitive achievements of Doug Brignole’s bodybuilding career.

He did not believe in doing common exercises like shoulder presses or stiff leg deadlifts and he rathered to have a unique way. The 63-year-old still kept an excellent training routine and he was preparing to guest pose at the AAU Mr. Universe that will take place in Las Vegas on Oct. 22.

After years of competing as a bodybuilder, he retired and start a new career. He mainly worked as an author, fitness expert, and public speaker. Despite that, he found a lot of fans and audiences in Japan, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, and Norway after conducting seminars throughout the country.

He was the founder of the website dougbrignole.com which advertised the ‘3-Way Split’ training routine that focuses on training the 22 major muscles in the body in three separate workouts with BRIG-20 (Brignole’s 20 most preferred) exercises.
