He has gained 55 pounds with his injections, but obviously, this unnatural way to gain muscles had not made him stronger, and it could be letal.
Even knowing that, Valdir says he loves when people watches him on the streets: “This is a dream came true.”
Valdir is 48 years old and started with his injections five years ago. Since then, his arms have duplicated their size, and he wants them even bigger.
The man, a construction worker from Sao Paulo, Brazil, said he’s proud of being locally known as “He-Man” and “the monster”.
He confessed when he was younger he was a drug addict y lost so much weight people started to call him “skinny dog”. Valdir said: “There was a time in my life when I got involved with wrong things I decided to change my life.”
He went to the gym, and someone there mentioned the Synthol and said he could get more extreme results with it than lifting weights. That’s why he started injecting his biceps, chest, and shoulder.
“It’s mainly cosmetic, it shapes the body and makes the muscle grow, but it doesn’t affect the strength,” said. In fact, doing it could kill him or expose him to risks like amputations.
“Doctors say I should stop”, said. “But is my choice because I want it and like it.”
Now, his primary goal is to enlarge his biceps 4 more inches and being famous for his muscles.
“I don’t regret it. I look in the mirror and like what I see.”
