Chris Bumstead went through the benefits of these injections before a massive hamstring workout.

Chris Bumstead is killing it in the gym as he prepares for what could be his fourth consecutive Classic Physique Olympia Championship title at the 2022 Olympia. It is clear that he is treating his body in other ways outside of the gym as well. In a recent video, Bumstead discussed the benefits of stem cell therapy followed by a hamstring workout.

Bumstead took the reins as Classic Physique champion at the 2019 Olympia and has not been able to be defeated. At this point, it is unknown if he will be taken down if he can keep his physique at this level. Bumstead is extremely active on YouTube sharing different workouts and diet plans. Now, he shared another method used to keep his physique in shape.

This summer, Bumstead shared his bulking diet that is being used to put on some more size heading into the fall. Then, he will work on getting shredded heading into the Olympia. Aside from ice baths, which Bumstead is a big promoter of, he also goes through different stem cell injections that produce different benefits.

Chris Bumstead Shares Benefits Of Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy

Chris Bumstead begins by explaining he has done stem cell before but will be taking on a new one. He explains how it helps heal different areas of the body and has different regenerative benefits. After his pre-workout meal, Bumstead started a warm up exercise with his hamstring curls. Bumstead’s warm up includes stretching and drop sets until failure.

“I’M GOING TO BE DOING STEM CELL IN A DIFFERENT WAY THAN BEFORE. I’VE DONE STEM CELL IN MY SHOULDER BECAUSE IT HAS A LOT OF REGENERATIVE BENEFITS. IT CAN HELP HEAL, BONES, CARTILAGE, LIGAMENT TEARS, ANYTHING LIKE THAT. SO, I’VE INJECTED INTO MY SHOULDER BEFORE, BUT DOING SOMETHING NEW TODAY.”

The new stem cells that Bumstead is using are mesenchymal. These come from the umbilical cord of a newborn baby. This is a treatment that Bumstead has not tried before but wanted to attempt a new cell.

“I’M USING SOMETHING CALLED MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS, WHICH COMES FROM THE UMBILICAL CORD OF A RECENTLY BIRTHED BABY. THEY TEST THEM, MAKE SURE THE MOM AND THE BABY ARE HEALTHY BEFORE TAKING THEM.

THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF STUDIES THAT SHOW THIS HELPS A LOT WITH AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES. IT HELPS MODULATE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM SO THAT IT DOESN’T SHUT DOWN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM. SO, YOU CAN’T ACTUALLY TACKLE OFF STUFF YOU NEED TO LIKE INFECTIONS AND ALL THAT KIND OF STUFF, BUT IT STOPS YOUR AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE FROM IMPACTING ITSELF NEGATIVELY, WHICH MINE DOES ON TO MY KIDNEYS.”

Chris Bumstead has an autoimmune disorder called IGA Nephropathy, which is a kidney disease that happens when immunoglobulin gets into the kidneys. This is an antibody that attacks the organ. Bumstead believes that stem cells might be a way to help fight infections in his kidneys.

As we creep closer to the Olympia, it is clear that Bumstead is in championship shape once again. He will be the favorite to win his fourth consecutive title when December rolls around.
