Bodybuilder’s Supersized Fake Muscles Could Kill Him

It could kill him, but he refuses to stop. Here’s his full story:

48 year-old Brazilian construction worker Valdir Segato likes being big. His idols areArnold Schwarzenegger and The Incredible Hulk. Being bulky and looking like abodybuilder – it’s his dream. But he’s not obsessed with hitting the gym lifting weights. He has another way of getting and staying big… Injecting himself with Synthol, a dangerous oil substance.oil2

He says this about his size: “This is a dream come true that I searched for and conquered. You look at your body and see that it’s growing and you’re going to want more.They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger and He-Man all the time and I like that. I’ve doubled my biceps to 60cm but I still want to be bigger.”oil4 

“The oil is mostly aesthetic, it models the body and makes the muscle swollen – it doesn’t affect strength. There was a time that I injected a larger dosage of anabolic steroids and I ended up in the hospital.”


“I mixed a cocktail of anabolic steroids that I was using at the time and I used it to excess. I was admitted for several days. It was a difficult time. 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.”
