Bodybuilder injects oil into biceps to become ‘Popeye’
RUSSIA: A young Russian man has achieved mega muscle growth through the use of synthetic chemicals that have turned him into a real-life Popeye.
Twenty-one-year-old body builder Kirill Tereshin posted pics online of his mega-muscles. Tereshin’s huge biceps are the result of him taking an unbelievable quantity of drugs.
Boasting 24-inch biceps, Kirill’s huge growth is a result of injecting himself with a chemical called synthol. Also known as Site Enhancement Oil, synthol is injected into muscles to unnaturally enhance their appearance, something known as “fluffing” in the bodybuilding world.
Synthol use has major side effects such as nerve damage, infections, sclerosing lipogranuloma, stroke, and the formation of oil-filled granulomas, cysts or ulcers in the muscle.
Kirill does work out in addition to using synthol, but recently said that he would like to break bodybuilding records after leaving the army not long ago.
His arms grew by 10 inches in just 10 days.
After initially injecting 250 ml into his biceps, he found growth limited, saying:
“In order to reach such a size, you need to inject liters into your arms… I was doing it and getting a fever of up to 40 degrees, I was lying in bed, feeling like I was dying, but then it all turned out fine.”
However, while his new arms might look impressive, it’s important to note that unlike achieving similar muscle growth through lifting, Synthol use doesn’t lead to an increase in strength to complement size.
