Many people dream of having the impressive muscles of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Some people spend days and nights in the gym trying to achieve this while others edit their pictures. The worst are those who venture into Julius experiments. Today we’re going to talk about these risky people. At some points, they started using medication that increases muscle mass but has a negative impact on their health. Sometimes such experiments with the body can end tragically. Sadly the risk doesn’t stop those who want to get huge muscles without any effort. Want to see them? Then let’s get it on.

1. Romario Alves

When Romario Alves from Brazil signed up for the gym, he was just planning on building some muscles and couldn’t imagine what his life would be like. Six months later, systematic weight gain training and powerlifting changed Romario’s body shape. However, he did not find the results to be significant. He saw some really big dudes with huge biceps in the gym and they told Alves about “Simple”- the substance made up of fat and painkillers. The substance is injected deep into the muscle and it spreads between the ligaments of the muscle fibers. The bigger the fat mass, the larger the muscle gross. But only about 30% of the product is absorbed by the body. The other 70% remains in the muscles for about 3 to 5 years and decomposes very slowly. Overall, it doesn’t do your body any good; not to mention the possible damage to the nerves and other complications.

The first injection of this oil-based muscle growth substance had visible effects on the development of Romario’s body. The man’s back and biceps began to grow disproportionately but he could not just stop. Every new injection made his muscles harder and harder. The substance inside the muscles turned into rocks, which like growths spreads to the arms and shoulders. Romario didn’t look good and even scared children. He became depressed, almost lost his beloved one and his arms. The regular injections in his muscles triggered irreversible processes and the doctors feared that it would lead to amputation. Fortunately, removing the Synthol deposits in the muscles was enough. After the surgery, the doctors strictly prohibited the man from taking the substance. Following the doctor’s advice, Elvis stopped abusing Synthol in 2013.

2. Suroor Sulthan

According to this guy’s Facebook page, he was born in Abu Dhabi. He owns his own gym and just loves sport including bodybuilding. Of course, he has a degree in psychology and calls himself and animal advocate- he loves cats and considers himself a very good guy (well you know, a person who doesn’t go to clubs, doesn’t drink and doesn’t have any bad habits and all).

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

But we kind of find it hard to believe that. Looking at Suroor’s muscles, maybe he really prefers to spend his time at home- killed up with his book and his three cats-but it’s unlikely the guy grew his muscles mass without using any special products. Of course, Suroor must have done a lot of hard work and decided to help his muscle just a little, and well this happened.

3. Valdir Segato

Usually, pretty young guys are the ones who want some artificial muscles, but it appears that some older guys are into it as well. Valdir Segato who is over 50 years old has been using Synthol injection for many years. Despite the risks of stroke and infection, this bodybuilder from South Paulo was inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger and some fictional characters such as the Hulk.

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

He is genuinely proud of being called a monster. Three years ago, Segato was warned that he was facing amputation, but he was not afraid of muscle injuries. Moreover, the man posts pictures and videos on social media and proudly calls himself Valdez Synthol on Instagram. That’s because Segato was very skinny in his youth. To change his life, he enrolled in the gym where someone encouraged him to use Synthol in order to grow his muscles and he couldn’t stop.

4. Justin Jedlica

Justin looks like a human doll and it is no surprise. Almost his entire body is the result of the work of plastic surgeons. During his life, the 39-year-old American has undergone more than 700 surgeries. We can’t even begin do imagine how much they all cost. Alba Kirsty always considered plastic surgery a symbol of a rich, glamorous lifestyle and sorts to follow it. After his first surgery which was a rhinoplasty, Justin didn’t want to stop.

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

He wants a perfect body. When Justin had silicone implants put into his chest, they attracted too much attention. His biceps and triceps looked pathetic against the background of his pumped-up pecs. Any person would think about going to the gym, but what if there was another solution? Soon the issue was taken care of. With the help of a few thousand dollars, he paid for other implants.

5. Moustafa Ismail

It’s not always possible to prove that a person has used any substances to increase muscle mass. An excellent example is Moustafa Ismail. Looking at his hand we can believe such a result can be achieved by training and dieting alone because these muscles are huge. The human body shouldn’t have such a shape, it’s not natural. Nevertheless, Ismail is the holder of a Guinness Book record for having the largest bicep. When this information was made public, people were outraged since when do people who use artificial substances do increase muscle enter the Guinness Book of Records. The scandal was so big that Ismail went to Japan and underwent a full-scale medical examination to prove that his muscles were real.

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

Based on the result of the tests Bridge consisted of a full-body MRI an ultrasound scan of each shoulder, the doctors concluded that there were no traces of implants or illegal substances in his body- although nobody knows what kind of clinic it was and what kind of doctors conducted the examination. Anyway, it’s a confusing story although the record is still in the Guinness Book people still continue to doubt its authenticity. By the way, the athlete admits that he relied on growth hormone and testosterone at the beginning of his career. However, he claims that his current form is the result of a diet containing 3000 grams of protein per day. Apparently they’re all absorbed by his biceps.

6. Jorge Kahwagi

Mexican businessman and politician Jorge Kahwagi is a very peculiar case in the history of boxing but not because he is a cool athlete. One glance at Jorge Kahwagi is enough to see that he looks like a doll. Indeed, Jorge has numerous implants in his chest and bicep and has undergone numerous plastic surgeries on his face. All of his muscles are fake. In addition, fans of boxing and specialized Mexican media are sure that every fight the businessman took part in was staged. Jorge himself said that he started boxing at the age of 8.

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

When you see him in action, it’s clear that something is not quite right. During his amateur career, Jorge allegedly fought 43 fights without defeat, 38 of which ended with a knockout, but he didn’t stop there. At the age of 33, Jorge decided to switch do the professional league and he also started to win time after time- although Jorge mostly fights against unknown fighters; but it’s all just a coincidence isn’t it?

7. Gregg Valentino

Like in any other sport, they are stars in bodybuilding and there are people who are not so popular. To put it mildly, one of them is Gregg Valentino. He is accused of creating a bad image for bodybuilding because of fraud, stupidity, anti-propaganda and many other sins and all because Valentino resorted to the use of illegal substances. Greg is one of the few bodybuilders who never wanted to have a professional sports career. Initially, bodybuilding was a way for him to get rid of teenage insecurities. Gradually, he became so interested in sports that he spent all of his time in the gym, pumping iron.

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

At the age of 16, he could boast powerful hands with a circumference of 49 cm. Over a 10 year period, he managed to grow his biceps to 53 cm but that was not enough for Greg. One day a friends saw Greg’s amazing results and recommended increasing muscle mass by adding the right medication. At first, Greg used any vitamins but soon added anabolic and different injections. From a good-looking athlete, he began to turn into a real monster with bulgy hands. Uncontrolled injections led to a terrible abscess on the biceps too.

8. Arlindo De Souza

Arlindo De Souza lives in a Brazillian municipality of Arlindo. He’s 48 years old and has long been a bodybuilder. For some time, the man honestly tried to build some body muscle mass by using traditional methods. Arlindo knew that medications can be very dangerous but bodybuilding always means tough competition, so he decided to take a risk. The effect really turned out to be astonishing. Remembering his first injection a couple of years ago, Arlindo says he felt a little dizzy and pain but nothing terrible happened, instead his muscles grew like crazy, So the bodybuilder decided to continue. However, there was also a side effect, as it always happens, the bulges of artificial increased muscles remained on the body constantly even when the body is relaxed. But Arlindo didn’t care. This new way of building muscles was a god-sent to him. However, he did see the information about the abscesses that can form in the muscle and the fact that he could even lose his hand, but these horror stories always seemed to be fictional and unreal because these terrible things always happen to someone else.

#Mind Warehouse (YouTube channel, amazing movie scenes that were made without special effects):

Unfortunately, something irreparable soon. One of our Arlindo’s friend died after a series of dangerous injections. It was a huge shock for the bodybuilder. So he decided to harness his willpower and stop. By the way, Arlindo didn’t stop working out when he did the injections. He just kept his old routine and adding medications only made the results more effective and faster, but the local medics consulted by Arlindo refused to help him in any way. They were afraid of taking such responsibility, so the man has to keep himself in shape without any injections and hope for the best. He has become a real star amongst the locals and despite his strange appearance, he’s popular with the ladies.
