Bodybuilders who have taken the game too far


Just when do you cross the line in your bodybuilding journey and take things too far in your quest to build more muscles? Most would argue the line goes the other side of crazy for people that inject a synthetic and highly dangerous substance called Synthol into their muscles. Synthol is a mixture of Benzyl Alcohol, pain killers and fatty acids! It is highly unpredictable with results that can be life-threatening and irreversible. Yet some people resort to Synthol to make themselves look bigger. Most people would agree that those who have injected Synthol are not bodybuilders, do not look muscular and look ridiculous and freaky.
Just to be clear, Synthol is dangerous, unpredictable, damaging and you must never use it. Below are the world's top Synthol freaks! Hope you haven't just eaten!

Here is a guy that is no doubt the main attraction on the beach... for the wrong reasons!
