Synthol User Has to Have His Arm Amputated

What do you do when your synthol arms turn into stone?

Synthol, created as a substance for bodybuilders with some seriously weak genetics — more specifically, those who don’t have round muscle bellies. Bodybuilders who use synthol use it as a means to fill up what their momma didn’t give them, and they use it properly.

Like most things, if done right, it looks good. Take

Bostin Loyd as an example: he uses synthol on his chest and arms, but he uses it wisely.

Then we look at other subjects who use it purely to enlarge their arms, shoulders, traps, and chest. We’ve all seen these idiots; They look like mutated human clouds, if that.

However, one can’t help but wonder which kind of health implications could be caused by the excessive use of synthol. By now, every two-bit lifter could tell you about the health risks of steroids — thanks to the internet, everybody seems to be an expert on the “bad side” of steroid use, but not so much on synthol.

Romario Dos Santos Alves, also known as “Hulk,” has been an excessive synthol user for the past few years, and his ‘transformation’ is an astounding one.

Due to his abusive use of the nasty oil, doctors told him that they would have to amputate his arm in order for him to continue living.

If you take it once there will definitely be a second time – it’s addictive,’ he said.

I remember the doctor told me that they would need to amputate both arms – they said everything in there, all my muscles, were rock.

I want other people to see the dangers, I could have died all because I wanted bigger muscles. It’s just not worth it.


I’m not sure if Alves has become something of a sideshow, or if people really think that his arms and build are really all that impressive? I can’t say with certainty.
