    It's synthol. Yes, he denies using synthol or an equivalent, but that's EXACTLY what synthol injected arms look like.

    btw, you guys know Peter Hiesinger? He looked pretty much the same, I think that crap even killed him several years ago.

    I'd have to concur with those saying it's fake. You can't work out a muscle and have only the middle half enlarge. The entire thing gets bigger.

    I can understand people juicing up to develop freaky size. In fact, I can respect that if your intent is to push the limits of your genetic potential. I for the life of me cannot understand injecting your arms or calves with synthol. It looks like a tumor is growing up your elbow!

    I dont get it either. It doesnt look shredded or muscle at all its just bloated like the blood cant get through there.

    I miss the old days of the Arnolds, Columbu, and Zane. Where guys where huge and muscle but not to a sideshow looking size. Now its creepy and looks like someone just put bodyparts together and its gone wrong.

    It's synthol. Probably the dumbest thing I've ever heard, there's no benefit to injecting crap that takes up space but serves no practical purpose.

    Roids HGH and Insulin

    New compounds ruined bodybuilding. Just go back to gear so we can have bodies like Ferrigno, Zane, and Arnold. The new dudes (Cutler, Heath, Greene) look like freaks

    Call me ignorant, but how does insulin come into play?

    I totaly agree the old timers had a way better look IMO. Its all about mass now it seems.


    The only peson the actually beat Arnold at Olympia, Segio Olivia, who just passed sawy at age 71 about 2 weeks ago was 5'10" 225 he aint big enough for today.

    And the 1st olympia larry Scott ay 5'7" 205.

    Bodybuilders use mega doses of insulin to increase nutrient uptake into muscles. It is a terrible idea and a really good way to die but they plan out the necessary carbs to avoid a diabetic crash and the stack a bunch of protein on top of that. Is it effective? Yea probably, there was a study done with a wounded soldier who could not move they used an insulin drip and branch chained amino acids to prevent muscle loss.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I guess there is money to be made in the Muscletech endorsement world.

    It started with the judging in the early 90s, and it was a source of controversy. They started rewarding guys like Dorian Yates (rather than, say, a Shawn Ray) who won on size (in Doran's case, his lats and his quads) rather than symmetry, proportion, posing, etc. Then you had people taking copious amounts of GH leading to bloated gut.

    Bodybuilding/supplementary industry essentially splintered into two different directions by the mid-90s. You had the athletic look (or I guess "functional") promoted by publications Men's Fitness, which appealed to the mainstream and makes most of the money for the supp industry. Then, you have the niche pro-BB market, which pushes the limits of human size.

    I had no issue with huge guys but the issue is when they no longer look human. Than it gets to wtf is this supposed to be. Jay Cutler no longer looks human. Its like a cartoon how ridiculous he looks.

    As for the supplement industry what a dirty bunch of crap 99% of that stuff is. It amazes me what people believe when these companies come out with stuff. Reminds me of snake oil peddlers the way they promise you size and strength for only 20 bucks.

    I was stationed with a guy that that would take all those supplements like daily. He just wanted to be strong. He swore that GAKIC let him bench like 50 more pounds. I did spot him and he benched like 455 almost twice.

    I took some and did like 65 pushups instead of my usual max of 45-50 at the time.

    Dont know why the stuff seemed to work, but it did. But I also dont see why the guy had to take it before everywork out. Thats why those companies make money though.

    N.O. Shotgun - 300% increase in bench press
    Anything BPI sells - almost as a good as steroids, but LEGAL!!!!!!
    Muscle Tech - gain 40 lbs of muscle in 6 weeks!!!!

    Probably my favorite ones that I can think of aha. Only things that work are protein, creatine, multis, and fish oil.

    It's just placebo. First time I took jack3d (another pre workout) squatted 315x8 instead of 5. Effects just wear off and don't really do anything. You're just taking in a lot of caffeine and other stims with that crap.

    I saw someone similar to this guy in Alexandria. His biceps were about near to this dudes size. I asked him if it was 'roids and he said he living a healthy lifestyle. What was odd is that his six-pack looked as if he hasn't really been working out. His biceps looked like a stuffed animal

    These guys inject steroids straight in the muscle which causes inflammations and many other problems, look for Greg Vallentino on you tube, they showed this on TV years ago, his skin torn up.

    Total mess, look for the videos that explain his idiotic choices.

    Greg was the (much maligned) posterboy for Synthol. And, yes, he denied using it.

    I think bodybuilding is going in a somewhat better direction now, the Olympia organizers realize that they can't just keep getting more and more massive and thats why guys like Heath and Kai are on top currently. They are obviously not cut along the lines of Greek statues, but still look infinitely more aesthetic than freaks like Cutler, Coleman, and Yates.

    I have seen the TV show with all info, I can't remember anymore, so here it is, watch the whole thing and all episodes and make sure you come back here and explain to everyone why they have those biceps made with intravenous steroids causing the swelling therefore becoming the ugly!

    Before you try to sound smart and impress us, tell me the difference between steroids and synthol. You don't know the difference so why don't I just help you out. Synthol = site enhancement oils that are not anabolic. They only increase size, not performance. It is not a steroid and is the reason why his arms are the way they are. He most likely took gear too but that's not why his arms are f'ed up.

    Now that you think you're so smart, why don't you name me some compounds or tell me what a SERM and SARM are or what the base of every cycle should be or what are the two 19-nors and why proctolin inhibitors are used with them.

    his arms look like implants, also looks like fat and that they are uncomfortably awkard and limiting. Not smart or functional to have arms like that.
