Brazilian Body Builder injects homemade Synthol...Dies

A Brazilian bodybuilder who injected himself with oil for bigger muscles died on his 55th birthday.

Valdir Segato had been using potentially fatal injections of Synthol for years, risking strokes and infections, to get huge biceps, pectorals and back muscles.

Segato previously said his body inspirations were Arnold Schwarzenegger and fictional characters like the Hulk.

“They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger and He-Man all the time and I like that. I’ve doubled my biceps but I still want to be bigger,” he said in 2016, according to the Daily Mail.

Six years ago, the São Paulo native was warned he would face amputation, or at least nerve damage and muscle disfigurement, as a result of the injections if he continued to use them.

His biceps blew up to 23 inches after he started injecting himself. He had come to be known as “the monster” on the streets and was proud of his title.

He posted images of his body transformation on social media and even called himself “Valdir Synthol” on Instagram.

While the bodybuilder had 1.7 million followers on TikTok, local media reported that he lived an isolated life with few friends or visitors.

Moisés da Conceição da Silva told Brazil’s Globo news that Segato rented a property built behind his family’s house, and on the day of his death, he was complaining about shortness of breath.

“It was around 6 a.m., more or less. He came crawling through the back house and came to the front. Then he knocked on my mother’s window, knocked, knocked, then she woke up and he said ‘Help me, help me because I’m dying,’” da Silva told the publication.

Segato was taken to a medical facility, but he fell at reception, appearing to have a heart attack.

The TikTok star used to be a scrawny teen, but after being offered Synthol in the gym, he became hooked on the substance.

Synthol usually consists of a mixture of oil, benzyl alcohol and lidocaine and can cause “a damage of nerves, oil embolic of the pulmonary, occlusion of the pulmonary artery, myocardial infarction, cerebral stroke and infectious complications,” according to Europe PubMed Central.

The results of the drug did not make Segato any stronger and were purely cosmetic.

“It’s the risk he takes,” Segato’s friend Fernando Carvalho da Silva has previously said. “He wants to look good and wants to be famous.”

I’m telling you; bodybuilding is a mental disorder. I’ve been saying that on the OG for a while now.


I workout for functional muscle, and I for sure don’t mind that chicks like it.


Maybe, but very few BB use synthol, even less so like that. I mean, he is full of damn oil! WTF


Literally no one but these idiots think that looks good, or thinks it’s actually muscle

The people that call him those names are more than likely doing it in jest, and he thinks they were admiring him

“Psst, hey…here comes that guy…HEY HEMAN, WHATS UP SCHWARZENEGGER!”


Hahaha!! Fucking dipshit.


Nice tits.

Dude looks like the synthol version of Anthony Cumia


if you’re not gonna give a shit and inject life threatening things in your body, why not just use real gear and hit the weights? either way you run the health risk BUT at least it’s real muscle you’re getting and you can still use a little synthol to look bigger. but i mean that’s if you give no fucks and obviously this dude didn’t.


23 inch biceps with all that Synthol. Arnolds got up to 22 and were real.
