    synthol is an oil some people inject into their muscles. it adds size but it's just oil. It's not actual muscle tissue. Pretty bad idea.

    Very odd. I would imagine that someone who gets into it that far...unless maybe if they're a paid performing artist...probably has some fetish related issues or OCD like some people have with cosmetic surgery and botox.

    I believe Greg Valentino was very OCD about it when he was doing it. He said he was very self conscious about it.

    Supposedly some pro's use it "legitimately" to help stretch the muscle fascia allowing for more growth, so it's not just the oil that adds size. There's lots of guys using synthol that'd you'd probably never be able to guess.

    One of the worst things to ever hit bodybuilding in my opinion.

    I need to get me some of that I bet all that goo makes you real strong 2000+ raw total
    The only lift I'm proud of at this point is a close stance, ass to grass zercher squat of 170kg x2 at 85kg bw. If only they held zercher squat competitions...
