Synthol equals possible death
By now we all have seen the crazy kid they call Popeye on all social media.
His name is Kirill Tereshin. Now we don’t like promoting or writing about this kind of careless use of dangerous chemicals, but this time we feel it is the right time to show the world especially the young generation the dangers of using it.
Kirill Tereshin developed 24inch biceps, by using homemade oil known as ‘synthol’. After continuously injecting himself and suffering a number of effects from the dangerous chemicals, doctors have warned him that he is on the verge of losing his arms.
When Tereshin decided that injecting a dangerous substance into his arms and noticed that he could not afford proper synthol, he decided to make his own out of olive oil, lidocaine and benzyl oil and hoped for the best.
Concerns were sparked when the Russian ex-soldier chillingly posted on Instagram that his “bazooka arms are about to fall off.”
Russian media have reportedly accused him to trying to become a ‘freak’ as he tries to chase Instagram glory.
Russian Doctor Professor Evgeny Lilin told the press “…abscesses will develop, then inflammation and (there is significant risk of) a stroke.” While some accounts are still open, Tereshin has since reportedly deleted his Instagram accounts and given up on his dream of a million followers, but Evgeny says that the damage has already been done.
“The bad thing is that Synthol or its equivalent will remain in his muscles for the next five to seven years even if he stops adding more.”
Kirill has previously been warned about paralysis but now a top medic says the threat is even graver.
Russian doctor Professor Evgeny Lilin, said: “Not immediately but he very likely faces amputation in the future.
Kirill is said to have already injected himself with six litres of this “dangerous liquid” and increased the size of his biceps to 23 inches.
The former soldier had made clear he plans to stop at 27 inches, according to reports.
Another doctor said: “Inside the arms of this man there are already pathologically changed tissues that looks like jelly with insertions.
“They are aseptic or inflammatory so far but these are abscesses.
“They consist either of oil or blood from the damaged vessels.
“They can’t be removed.”
Kirill said: “For about a month I was making up to ten injections into each arm every day, using a 20ml syringe.”
“When I was doing it and getting a fever of up to 40 degrees, I was lying in bed, feeling like I was dying, but then it all turned out fine.”
“If I had used real Synthol, it would have cost me about 400,000 roubles (£5k), but as I made it myself, I spent only about 4,000 roubles (about £50).
“I did not feel any discomfort in my arms when I was doing it…. my body got used to it.
“Within a month I got 106,000 subcribers in my Instagram. I love to be recognisable.”
Editors note: This is ridiculous and must be stopped. It is tarnishing the sport of bodybuilding and making it more of a freak show. The heath hazards of such a thing is very high and it is a high price to pay just to get larger arms that look sick anyways.
What happened to the days when a young kid would train hard and eat to try to gain some size. Everybody today want the fast but dangerous way to try to look bigger.
I was brought up in a era that to get big you have to eat big. And I firmly believe that it is the best system to stay healthy. Ok, you might not have sculptured abs unless you are gifted with them, but you can enjoy going to the gym and having a good workout as you will have enough energy to train hard. Using these chemicals give you absolutely no advantages.
A number of Pro bodybuilders have experiment with synthol in the past and came close to death as well, and they all regret using it.
So what is better, injecting yourself with a homemade chemical disaster or eating a good plate of pasta and heading to the gym and training hard? I think I will stick to eating a good meal and training hard and let the gains come by time rather than coming close to losing both of my arms.
