Glory or nothing!
A Russian man, Kirill Tereshin, 21, has been injecting himself with a homemade brew intended to beef up his biceps.
The concoction is based on Synthol, which is made from olive oil, lidocaine and benzyl alcohol.
He wrote on Instagram that his “bazooka arms are about to fall off”.
Doctors had previously warned the ex-soldier that he faced paralysis in his arms from the injections, but now they say he may even face amputation. Pictures show reddish-purple discolorations on both arms.
“One day abscesses will develop, then inflammation and he (will be at risk of) a stroke,” said Russian doctor Professor Evgeny Lilin.
“The bad thing is that already-injected Synthol or its equivalent will remain in his muscles for the next five to seven years, even if he stops adding more now.”
Tereshin has no plans to stop, and even plans to juice up his back and other body parts.
