This BodyBuilder Almost Lost His Arms Trying To Look Like The Hulk

May 04, 2015 1 min read

This is bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos, a guy whose attempt to become a real-life Incredible Hulk came damn close to costing him both of his arms. Brazilian-born Dos Santos injected his body with site enhancement oil, referred to as synthol in Bodybuilding circles. Bodybuilders have used it to target parts of their physique that don't respond to traditional training methods - in an attempt to bulk them out.  The injections are typically comprised of oil, lidocaine and alcohol, though street versions of this dubious cocktail may contain other more shady ingredients. Screen Shot 2015-05-04 at 12.18.01 PM Needless to say, injecting yourself with synthol leads to huge problems like pulmonary embolisms, nerve damage and, in Romarios’s case, oil-filled pockets that cause your muscles to turn into rock. 'I remember the doctor told me that they would need to amputate both arms – they said everything in there, all my muscles, were rock.’ Doctors were able to salvage the limbs after cutting out the muscle. Dos Santos is synthol free two years later, but amazingly still feels like taking it again. ‘I still feel like taking synthol but I won’t take it again. If you take it once there will definitely be a second time – it’s addictive.’ H/T: uproxx.com Do you follow us on Instagram?
