Would consider it only if a limited dosage could be injected into calf and guad muscles.

That pics been around awhile. There was a time when bodybuilders were injecting a fluid (can't remember the name) that pumped them up like crazy but didn't have the same effect as steroids. It was basically like filling up a waterballon. Gave them weird body part like that.

You'd think that with arms like that, he might be able to break out of those handcuffs.

That's synthol injections.

Google image search Greg Valentino. He is the most popular fool that's done this.

Why? That's what I want to know. That's got to be beyond inconvienant.....and very unattractive.

Disgusting...and when you think about it, it's pretty much the same thing as collegen injections and breast implants. You're sticking plastic or globs of protein into or underneath you fatty tissue. I've seen pictures of guys with the synthol injections where their tissue starts to degrade because of having that goo in there sloshing around or their skin stretches too much, and their "muscles" sag. Sort of like the way that gravity affects older ladies.

I have to wonder how much that crap affects their lifts. I'll bet it cuts down their maxes significantly.

Synthol. That was it. If you read anything about bodybuilding, you'll find out how insecure and messed up most of them are. That guy had his own demons and obsessions. I remember one article with a guy who was doing steroids and diuretics and got his body fat so low he could watch his kidneys working. He finally quit the 'roids when he pulled a guy out of a car through his driver side window after he broke it with his fist. Couldn't remember why he was pissed in the first place at the guy. Still struggles with self esteem and the roid rage more than a decade after quitting them.

He is a show piece. Likely still makes money for showing up to events. Like a big piece of meat. But really he made his money as a dealer before being arrested.

I did not watch the whole show on TLC, but he was busted for selling drugs. Not just Roids but other drugs as well.
