Did Gregg Valentino do synthol ?

There's a pro bodybuilder on another forum who swears Valentino's biceps were custom-made implants: synthol alone won't get 'em like that.
Let's also note that Synthol is constantly injected oil. Only difference between synthol and regular oil is that synthol takes a much much longer time to clear; hence, the people who inject synthol with steroids in it are ****ing morons because the steroid needs to get into the bloodstream and pass through the liver to become "activated".

now that I think about that, it makes sense. However, his biceps/arms are not symmetrical which would occur if there were implants.
either way they are ugly as hell

Haha, yeah. Valentino looks horrible.
Part of the reason his arms are so messed up, is because he had a hematoma (sp?) in one of his biceps, was a retard and tried to "fix it" himself. Doctors ended up having to cut out the infected section of his bicep. The moron used to use dirty needles.

Edit: You're right, it wasn't a tear and he did try to fix it himself. I remember now.

He did use synthol IMO. That pic above is also flattering. Usually he had no vascularity.
He DID cause the damage himself.
He did try to get it fixed.
And if memory serves me he does/did get a small implant, BUT i cant be held to that one.
PM him over at MD he shows up once in awhile.
Perosnally, people ahte on him to much. Let the man be, he knows what he did, he knows alot of people laugh at him, he is a hero in his own mind.
On a nice note, his physique "pre transformation" was great. He used to compete, still could have if he didnt get ahead full of steam and do what he did.

I agree. Back before he went "mutant", he was a decently proportioned bodybuilder, and I believe he did a lot of competing in strongman.

He had damn good arms back in the day too.Def a strong point.He swears he never used synthol.I believe he even said it wasn't around back when he got his arms that big.Who knows?I don't see why he would lie about it when he's so truthfull about many other things.But again,who knows?I like his column.It seems anyone would be honored to have him as a friend.Just seems like a guy that would put himself through hell just for someone else to get a bit of pleasure out of life.

Didn't Gregg Valentino say before he used to empty entire vials into his arms at a time ? If so, interesting.....

Implants. Oil will stretch the fascia but you eventually need to grow into the new space. So your arms get more muscular and fill in where the oil once was...
...if you were to repeat this process to the extreme as claimed by G.V. then your arms to reach that huge size would also be very muscular and a lot stronger then G.V.'s currently are.

OMG! I just saw that clip with Gregg Valentino in the restaurant where he was saying in one hand they have the thumbs up, and under the table they have the middle finger up.
That was awesome !

I have met him a few times as my gym owner is very good friends with him. I have been told by a few people that it was either the 50mg eq, or the 50mg prop that he shot ungodly amounts of into his bis. So basically it is just synthol with a little gear in it if you want to look at it that way. Last i heard they were using him to promote bigger faster stronger around the NYC area. His arms are not my cup of tea, but whether he is famous or infamous he got enough publicity that their are 10 threads on every board about him.

Also one said he's not that strong.I have read his bb curls are pretty damn high.Ofcourse it could be fake and all,but that number was more than most can bench.

I think if you were to use implants you would start with a smaller one and have it stretch the arms and then go back and have it replaced with a large one...maybe you do that several times?
I think there is a stigma attached to implants. Everyone laughs at the guys who get pec implants but nobody cares about synthol so who knows....maybe thats why.
Maybe he makes a living off of being infamous like some pointed out already and so keeping it a mystery means people are still interested in "the ramblin freak".
It seems to me that Dave Palumbo just kind of mentioned it matter of factly like he knew it as fact but had no interest in the topic.

Well it clearly has us talking about him,but the truth is,I like the guy for what I see through his article,interviews,and in his little clips on the net.I just saw the tyra show one and I always think he's a cool guy.But maybe I wouldn't know who he is if it wasn't for his arms?I heard him say in one of his interviews to someone else that synthol wasn't even around when he got that big.
