Pre-workout is serious business.
It is like hard drugs. You don’t mess around.
But also, blacks are really unhealthy.
Here’s the inside scoop on TikTok’s “dry scooping” challenge: It’s not for the faint of heart.
In fact, the death-defying trend that prompts participants to ingest a mound of undiluted supplemental energy powder caused 20-year-old stripper and OnlyFans star, Briatney Portillo, to suffer a heart attack.
“I never thought something like this would ever happen to me. Especially because I’m so young,” Portillo told The Post.
And while she was in the middle of having the heart attack in April, first responders didn’t think she was in cardiac arrest either.
“The cops and EMTs were like, ‘Maybe it’s just anxiety because you’re about to dance,’” recalled Portillo, who’s worked as a stripper for more than a year.
Because of her age and profession, emergency medical techs initially assumed she was merely experiencing an anxiety attack sparked by the pressures of having to undress in front of strangers for money.
“But I don’t have anxiety about dancing,” she added. “At the time, I wasn’t sure what my body was going through but I knew something was way off.”
A dangerous trend
After weeks of watching digital fitness influencers swallow heaping tablespoons of pre-workout — a non-Food and Drug Administration regulated, caffeinated substance that athletes typically mix with water and drink before exercising in order to improve their endurance, stamina and focus — Portillo decided to give it a try.
“A lot of body builders on TikTok were doing it and I thought, ‘If they can do it, so can I,’” the Bronx native explained.
The recent “dry scooping” mania is reminiscent of the once-viral “cinnamon challenge” craze of 2012, which saw thousands of YouTubers film themselves eating a spoonful of ground cinnamon in under 60 seconds sans water.
At its peak, that challenge — which claimed the life of a 4-year-old boy in Kentucky — amassed over 70,000 social-media mentions a day.
But for Portillo, who exercises on a weekly basis, the prospect of garnering online popularity wasn’t her motivation for attempting the dry-scoop trend.
“It wasn’t for clout,” the exotic dancer insisted. “I didn’t even record myself doing it. I just wanted energy to work out.”
You imagine how stupid fats, women and blacks are and wrap them into one.
They should have refused her treatment and told her to either lose weight or stop being black.
The real question is: why would anyone want to see this bitch naked?
You know those tiddies have got stretch marks that are white and veins that are black. Nipples all wrinkled.
What exactly is going on with standards of pornography?
