A Brazilian bodybuilder, who was once a skinny drug addict, now has 23 inches biceps.
Valdir Segato, from Sao Paulo, has been injecting oil into his biceps to produce biceps like The Hulk.
He is risking his life by using Synthol injections for years and has been warned but he continues to boost his biceps.
Segato, who is known as ‘The Monster’, says Arnold Schwarzenegger and fictional characters like The Hulk are his inspiration.
As a teenager, he was a skinny drug addict and was known as ‘Skinny Dog’.
According to DailyMail, he previously said: “I got involved with drugs and I started losing weight because you don’t eat, you lead a wrong life.”
Segato then quit drugs and joined a gym. Now, he is using Synthol injections to boost his biceps.
In 2016, Segato said: “They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger, and He-Man all the time and I like that. I’ve doubled my biceps but I still want to be bigger.”
He is risking his life by using Synthol injections despite he has been warned.
Using Synthol can cause a ‘damage of nerves, oil embolic of the pulmonary, occlusion of the pulmonary artery, myocardial infarction, cerebral stroke, and infectious complications’, according to Europe PubMed Central.
Segato previously said: “The doctors tell me to stop it, the advice they give me is to stop using. But it’s my decision to use it because I want to because I like to.”
