This Bodybuilder Almost Lost His Arms After Trying To Look Like The Hulk

Uproxx – Meet bodybuilder Romario Dos Santos, a man whose attempt to become a real-life Hulk almost cost him both arms. It started when the Brazilian-born Dos Santos injected his body with site enhancement oil, commonly referred to as synthol. Bodybuilders often use it to “hide a lagging body part,” one that does not respond well to training. It consists of oil, lidocaine and alcohol, though street versions may contain other ingredients. 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.’
